Making Tracks With Brio | A Review

Saturday, 12 August 2017
I've mentioned a few times how Jack absolutely loves trains in whatever form but especially his wooden railway, and from a few months old - Isla was clearly a fan too. As shes grown older her love for all things trains and wooden railways has become prominent. We have wooden track at home and at both grandparents houses so they always have some to play with. So when we were asked if we would like to review the BRIO Classic Figure of 8 train set, I knew it would be a big hit with both children. 

The BRIO Classic Figure of 8 set is a perfect beginning set for those younger ones, being an easy set to put together and not too much to make them loose interest - but enough to keep it there. It came within a smallish box complete with the train tracks, trains and accessories all neatly packed inside. 

To put it together you needn't have to look at the instructions as its simple, 7 individual curves each side, joining with the connector bridge. You then simply place the trees and station wherever you wish along the line. 

Both Isla and Jack loved how quick and simple it was to put together, Isla especially, as they have the shortest patience ever for anything they would like to do. As soon as it was built, Isla was pushing the three coaches around the track, stopping for the station and to look at the trees with her imagination running wild. 

As with all BRIO it is made to high quality and is compatible with other BRIO sets. The size of this set was perfect as it doesn't take too much space or time to put up and take apart so its a perfect toy for downstairs. Its a perfect starter train and certainly one I would recommend. It has a RRP of £37.99 and suitable from all good toy retailers. You can find more about the range on the BRIO website

Please Note: I received this set in exchange for an honest review, all words and opinions are my own and not influenced in any way.
