the swedish brand brio is certainly one of the best. they appeal to my design-obsessed brain, but also get my kids totally jazzed. if you haven't heard of them don't feel bad, it hasn't been until recently that they landed stateside. brio fosters children's imaginations with toys that are open-ended, timeless, and eco.
can you believe they have been around for 130 years?! to celebrate they released a p u l l - a - l o n g h o r s e inspired by the toy that started it all ,the osby horse. (pictured above)
the a i r p o r t m o n o r a i l with battery powered train, high-rise track, airplane and terminal, will be a showstopper under the christmas tree this season. both my kids love it and henry (five) can just watch the train go along the track forever. brilliant!
