Did you know that Lionel Electric Trains, the iconic brand that has put smiles on kids’ faces for over 110 years, has a “pop-up” location in Cherry Hill Mall that opened a few months ago? Based on last year’s overwhelming success of the company’s first ever retail location in New York City, Lionel decided to expand by setting up a variety of these “pop-up” locations in time for the holiday season. Lionel unveiled five new pop-up stores this year in NYC, Westchester, Dallas, Minneapolis and yay for us, Cherry Hill!
My hubby is a train geek and my 2.5 year old loves her some Thomas trains so our family is particularly excited about this new Lionel store. There are lots of great new trains to check out including a variety of starter-sets and add-ons such as the Pennsylvania Flyer, the New York Central, and the Nutcracker Route – all on sale at the Cherry Hill location.
And for the little guys, there is Lionel Little Lines, the perfect first train set for kids 2½ years old and up. For ages four and up, Lionel will also be offering their iconic Polar Express battery-powered set; sure to spark an early love of model trains. Over the past few years, Lionel has also entered into several licensing agreements that have led to the Polar Express, the Hogwart’s Express, Thomas the Tank Engine and Amtrak trains. All of these and many more will be available on site in Cherry Hill.
