Choo Choo Bob's Train Store was founded in 2005 on the principle that trains are fun for all ages. Over the last decade, our small shop has expanded and evolved into a celebrated Twin Cities landmark, and the region’s premier family-friendly shopping experience. We offer a free interactive play area that's open daily to the public, operating train layouts, a broad selection of toys for purchase, a weekly story hour, and birthday party rental packages (more party details below).
We are proud to be an official Thomas & Friends Wooden Railway Specialty Station. In addition, we offer Brio, Melissa & Doug, Maxim, and other compatible wooden railway systems. We also stock O-gauge and HO-scale trains for hobbyists and beginners alike. Beyond trains, we carry a wide array of toys for the young at heart: Playmobil, Lego, Carrera slot cars, Hot Wheels, Calico Critters, and much, much more.
