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. 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. We already had some Brio World sets so we added them all together to make a massive house.
The school set comes with 22 pieces with a mixture of wood and plastic all in bright colours and is actually really easy to slot together. Turns out you didn’t really need the instructions in the end. 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.
All in all Ami and Son Son loved the set 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 is 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.
