BRIO My First Take Along Train Set | A Review

Tuesday, 7 November 2017
I've mentioned a number of times how much both of my two love trains, as in really LOVE. Between them, one thing they enjoy playing with together is their wooden train sets, so when the opportunity came for us to review the My First Take Along Train Set, I knew it would be perfect. 

It arrived with us whilst Jack was at school and Isla was eager to get it open and have those initial plays with it, getting ahead on the action. 

The BRIO My First Take Along Train Set is aimed at children 18months + and is the perfect starter train set. It comes within its own carry along case which forms part of the train track. When you open the case there are additional pieces to complete the set, this includes a train, a train carriage, 2 slopped tracks and 2 track ends. 

The pieces easily fit together to make a simple track, placing a slope either side with a track end on to form a track which goes up, round and back down. I initially showed Isla how to build the track then every other time shes been able to place the pieces down herself to remake the track. 

 When Isla had finished playing she could easily place all the items back inside the case herself and tidy away for another play day. This track has been on many adventures with us, taking it to my mums when she was looking after them, and also out to a meal with us, although it can be fairly big to place on a restaurant table. 

One thing I love about this set, apart from its ease of use and manoeuvrability is the fact you can extend the track. Jack added some of his other wooden track onto the set to make it larger and these have stayed inside for when either of them take it out. 

The train and carriage, as with any BRIO set are attached with magnets which Isla enjoyed clicking together and pulling apart. Within the carriage is bell which is great for the younger children to be able to follow the train along and encourage the sensory development.

The BRIO My First Take Along Train Set retails around £29.99 and is worth every penny.
