The Swedish company BRIO, is best known for its hugely popular interlocking birchwood railway system... the one that comes with the very cute wooden trains with the chunky little magnetic couplings! In early 2015 the company was purchased by German games and jigsaw company Ravensburger who integrated the BRIO ranges into their existing portfolo of wooden products.
These toys have been used by many generations of children worldwide. Whilst they are extremely simple to assemble and play with, the variety of engines, wagons, coaches and accessories has become increasingly detailed and sophisticated. The pull-and-push BRIO toys train system is ideal for younger children - although there is a battery operated engine to add a bit more excitement for older kids. The beauty of BRIO's system is that it is compatible with other popular wooden toy manufacturers such as Plan Toys.
BRIO rails can be connected to engine sheds, stations, cranes, level crossings, tunnels and bridges - and the engines and wagons connect with a simple magnetic system. The full range of BRIO toys covers far more than just railways though; the company's emphasis on quality is evident in all of their other wooden toys. You can buy classical ride-on cars, push-and-pull toys in the shape of animals, as well as building blocks and rattles.
The introduction of BRIO's 'My Very First' toys were designed for infants from birth to eighteen months. Not only do they have a wonderful soft look and feel, but are made of the highest quality materials. The ranges include cot mobiles, soft puzzles, play balls, mobiles and blankets. Whatever BRIO toy you choose, customers can be assured of good value and an item that will stand the test of time.
