Last year my youngest son started his collection of Brio play and his first piece was the fantastic Brio Parking Garage.
He plays with this toy every single day without fail , he loves it . He interacts different pieces from other toys into his imaginative games and when we were asked to take a look at the new Train and Bus station which can be joined onto it we of course said yes.
Just like the other Brio toys we have tried , we were not surprised by the well packaged boxes that arrived and soon as they arrived they were open and straight into the play .
Both the Bus Station and the Train station are part of the Brio World /Travel collection .
They both have the ability to connect to each other and to any other Brio track like product.
One of the many reasons we love Brio is for their quality products and the fact that their products are made form 100% wood from well managed forests which means they take full responsibility for all wood used .
Bus and Train Station
3 years and over Recommended
5 Pieces included
One of the aspects of the Brio World Bus and Train station I loved this time and with this product is that it came with a playable person Figure .
You also get an end of piece which adds on to make the Bus parking depot, an over sized suitcase and a Bus that fits your figure in perfectly so play can be enjoyed fully.
The bus is a bright and cheerful sunshine yellow and has a roof that lifts up so your figure can fit comfortably inside and its extra added feature of having the magnetic front and back bumpers means all other vehicles that are form Brio will work with it.
My son has the transporter wagon which came from the Parking Garage which he loves to add into this piece. He likes to make them all into a train and carriage and adds multiples along the floor , keeping him entertained for hours.
The station has three posts, you get two stops and a post where there is a painted machine that makes imagination believe this is where you get to buy your tickets. All you need to do now is to hop on your bus which will take you to the train and bring you back on your return.
If the weathers not great, least your able to take cover under the wonderfully green sheltered rooftop.
This toy is wonderful for stimulating their hand and eye co ordination skills helping them develop their touch senses.
There is no batteries needed with this toy.
Central Train Station
3 years and over recommended
2 pieces included
The Central Train Station is a fantastic add on edition to the World Collection .
You only get 2 pieces in this product consisting of the Train Station itself and a figure to make that inspirational creativity come to life .
I absolutely love that this product has a wonderful feature of sound .
Unlike the Bus and Train station previously looked at , this station has a ticket service stand where you place the figure onto the button and it beeps enlightening your child's hearing senses .
Your child will also love the added clock featuring on the entrance top of the station .
Just like any train station you may have visited , time is important and so having the movable hands to change time will ensure you catch your train on time .
I would have loved to have seen a vehicle with this item such as a small train or carriage to add into the role play but luckily my son has interchanged some pieces form previous played with Brio products .
This product comes with batteries included
2 LR44 batteries required
