Choo Choo Bob's Train Store was founded in 2005 on the principle that trains are fun for all ages. Since then, we have established ourselves as the Twin Cities' ultimate destination for family-friendly shopping and interactive play. Operating trains in the front window greet customers, while public play tables await children in the back of our spacious and vibrant St. Paul store.
We are an official Thomas & Friends Wooden Railway Specialty Station. In addition, we carry Brio, Melissa & Doug, and other compatible systems. We also stock O-gauge and HO-scale trains for both hobbyists and beginners. Beyond trains, we offer a wide array of Playmobil, Lego, Carrera slot cars, Hot Wheels, Calico Critters and more.
Simply put, the only thing we sell is ... FUN!
