Seal of Approval Winner Fall 2017

There is something delightfully “throwback” about many BRIO toys and this is no exception. Like most BRIO toys, there is a minimalist design factor. Testers liked that the truck and two people figures were made out of strong birch and the packaging was both nominal and easy to remove. Over the years BRIO has not shown themselves to be big into electronics, even something as simple as lights or sounds. Based on the name of this toy, it’s apparent that in this case they have elected to add those extras. Still, even when they do incorporate electronics they do it in a refined, purposeful way. Oh and the batteries are included which parents always appreciate. The yellow crank on the top is great for fine motor skills and the ladder is a good size for little hands. There are no rules or instructions to follow. The only requirement is that the child to use his or her imagination to play. As always, price can be an issue when it comes to BRIO toys, they are never inexpensive but testers have told us that they have come to expect it and know that there is quality inside.
