I just realized that, of all the things I've featured in this burgeoning little blog about toys, I've yet to actually discuss a plain and simple toy. Today's feature is actually a double, because you cannot discuss one without invariably arriving at the other.
The Toy Train Set and the Wind-Up Train Wrecker are two individual items that can be purchased for 250g at various toy and novelty vendors around Azeroth, and they caused quite a stir when they were first introduced in the Wrath of the Lich King expansion.
There were those who cried out against such toys in general, claiming that Blizzard only made the train so annoying and troll-worthy (that's a word now) in order to practically force players to sink more gold into the Train Wrecker. Whether intentional or not, that was exactly the effect it had. For every train set sold for 250g, at least one train wrecker was purchased at the same price. But love 'em or hate 'em, these two little toys are definitely interesting additions to Azeroth's catalog o' stuff.
