We are massive BRIO fans in my house. My eldest son was given a train track when he was just a baby. It was second hand when we got it and it’s still going strong today. The train track is nearly thirty years old and just as good as the day it was made (minus lots of pen marks).
We were asked to review some of the BRIO World range and I just knew it would be something that the kids would enjoy. I hadn't heard of the Brio family range so equally I was just as interested to see what it was all about. I thought Brio was just about trains but it turns out its not and there is a massive range called BRIO world.
We were sent the School play set and the extension assessor pack. I thought beforehand that they may be made out of wood so when I opened the box I was a tad intrigued to see plastic. To be honest I didn't really think of much and didn’t really understand what it was all about. Then I read the instructions and the kids started playing with the toys I knew hang on this is a real game changer for toys.
What you might not see so much from the photos is that all the walls and the flooring can be taken apart and you can build it just how you want. There’s many different opens to how you build your sets. We made a massive school out of the two sets together. Which my Ami loved she loves anything school at the moment.
The set included two figures too which aided the school game (also didn’t cause too many arguments as the little ones had a figure each to play with. One of the best things about the Brio set is that is doesn’t come with any batteries no annoying sounds and children are encouraged to use their imagination.
We were also sent the BRIO Village Module. This is an expansion set that can be used as a standalone piece or use to create other buildings. You can also use the set to expand any existing Brio village sets you may have. They are the same colourful colours as the school and they all can slot together.
All in all Ami and Son Son loved these two sets and equally I was not disappointed. I can see them having a lot of fun playing over and over again with the village sets. No play time will be the same as each time will be a new masterpiece.
The BRIO school play set retails at £29.99 and the Village Module is £19.99. They are both available from all good toy shops and online shops also. They are recommended for children aged 3 and about. We have loved them defiantly a firm favourite in our house.
