Brio Classic Train Review & Giveaway

Bonjour lecteurs! Baba is obsessed with cars and trains at the minute. Oh and bananas that he calls ‘nanas’ too 🙂 Anyway, he’s always been a huge fan of Brio. He received the Parking Garage for his birthday and it is one of his favourite toys. So when Brio asked me to try one of their products, I did not have to think too much! I knew it would be a hit so we accepted the mission! Here just for you is our Brio Classic Train Review. And because we know that after reading it, you will want a set too, you can win 1 Brio Classic Train Set worth £17.99!

Brio Classic Train

Brio is a classic brand. If you have children, I am sure you would have come across it! So what is this set all about?

It’s a classic train in red & black with some bright yellow wheels.

So many possibilities with this set… Now we want some more from the same range 🙂

The choice of colours is great: unisex so that everyone can play with it!

It’s time to go into the world of train tracks. With this classic wooden toy, you are sure to make waves! We already have a couple of similar items at home with the same magnet connections so it makes a great addition to what Baba already have.

The Little Details We Like

So just a train set? Not really!

The wooden loads that can be lifted are also a good way to practise building skills. Watch out not to lose them! We are very bad with little pieces like that… The truth is that Baba has so many toys, it is easy to misplace such parts.

Plus what I really like about this detail is that it expands the possibility for further story making! Baba prefers the train without the loads at the minute, but it might change!

With or without the top part, let’s their imagination get rolling!

Brio Classic Train Review

If you already are a Brio fan, this Brio Classic Train set needs to be on your list! As always with this fab brand, you are in for a toy that will last! The finish is very well made and it is nice to have a toy (or jouet in Frenchie) that doesn’t require any batteries!

I don’t know about you, but Baba got so many plastic toys over the months that ended up damaged or in the bins within a few days!

And the fun can start!

This will not happen with the Brio Classic Train set. Plus the little twist (loads) makes it more versatile.

Get a train track and start collecting them! It is so easy with the magnet connections!

Brio Classic Train Review – Le verdict

The loads could be a bit challenging to put on but it is good to think while you play too!

We really like this Brio Classic Train. It will never go out of style and we are set for hours of play for sure!
