If you have a simple suggestion about a product, we will forward it to our Product Development department. If you have a more involved "product idea" that you are wanting to formally suggest to Lionel, you will need to first have your idea patented, to protect yourself and Lionel. Then contact us and we will send to you a packet of information that will explain to you how to formally send us your idea. Please know that we only accept ideas for trains, no other types of toy products.

Please be aware you will only get an additional response if we have further questions or clarifications on your submission.
