We are big fans of Brio having already got the builder deluxe set and Lucas can’t get enough of trains so when we were offered the Brio Metro Railway Set to review*, I couldn’t wait to show Lucas.
The set includes a train, 2 carriages, a station, tunnel, 2 people, a suitcase, buffer stop, ticket machine, map with base and wooden track with a junction track. The people can be seated in the train, carriages or the station.
To start off with Lucas thought the train should move by itself but once I told him he needed to move it, he was quite happy and I think it helped his playing more as he had to use his imagination rather than press a button for the train to control itself.
There are lights and sounds on the train which increase the faster Lucas pushes the train. The station also has sliding doors that Lucas can open to help the people go through and Lucas enjoys getting them to sit in the station whilst the train does a lap then he picks them up.
Lucas has already had hours of fun and I’m sure will have plenty more with this set. What I really like, is the size of it, it is fab for carrying inside and out if you are going travelling and want to take with you.
Brio are also conscious of the impact their products can have on the environment and ensure they only use wood from FSC certified wood. They also continuously strive to improve their way of working so they can minimise their carbon footprint x
