Racing Grannies

This is definitely a unique concept for even the most avid of train set enthusiasts. The gift idea may be offensive to some though, as it might be construed as making light of wheelchair-bound seniors.

Racing Grannies includes the likeness of two wheelchair racing senior citizens, who race around a 10-piece track (which comes unassembled).

The kit requires four AA batteries (not included), and is of sturdy plastic construction.

The grannies measure 3¼” in height, and the assembled track measures 15½” x 25½”.

The price tag of this gift is $19.95, at http://www.whatonearthcatalog.com. Stats for Geriatric Train Sets Trending: Older & Chilly
