i’ve mentioned that i am not totally into holiday shopping this year, i think because my kids are at that in between age when the wooden toys i love are a bit too simple for them, and i am not ready to go all disney-electro on their shopping. luckily, there is one old school toy-maker that hits just the right note with kids from tiny babies to primary schoolers: brio of sweden.
you many know brio for their high-quality train sets that have been around for decades, but lately they have been giving their products an update! brio still makes toys in beautiful wood, but now you will find colorful plastic accents and electric elements that offer the best of both worlds! also, brio is one of the rare companies that makes toys in black and white—i love love love that! they understand kids are a part of our lives and so are their toys.
for this season they just released a new and improved play kitchen that like includes an oven, fridge, sink and stove top all in-one and the best part is the oven has a digital timer that beeps! my kids are obsessed. they have been playing with this hard ever since it arrived.
other new releases include, an adorable country side horse set (pictured), a city railway set, and my fave is the advent calendar that creates a holiday train scene (pictured). so cute!
shop brio and on amazon
brio provided toys for review for this post. all words and opinions are totally mine.
