Wooden Mechanical Turntable for Wooden Train Sets

Sale Price : $14.99

This wooden mechanical turntable changes the design game for your little track designer. Sometimes the track gets out of control in an octopus-style. Where do we go from here? How do we make this a loop? How do we turn this train around? This little turntable is the answer. It has cogs and it operates by pushing a button. It's mechanical, easy and will make the construction so much more interesting. It can connect to six (yes, 6!) rail lines making it the hub of a very busy route.

The wooden railway system from BRIO has always been one of their most popular collections. An original heirloom collection, BRIO is possibly the most expansive railway system sold today. The range holds an endless amount of tracks, trains, and accessories that encourage children's creativity. 

Note: This turntable is not compatible with the large trains from Brio like Gordon, Henry, Edward and James. This is designed for the standard heirloom train collection.

LAYOUT SIZE: 1.38" x 6.69" x 6.69"
AGE RANGE: 3 years +

Developmental Value

Aside from building blocks, we believe train sets are one of the best toys you can buy for your children because both physical and imaginative play come together, often in serious engagement and a state of flow. Adding accessories like this turntable allows children to take their creative dreams to another level.

Children will imagine stories and whistle train sounds Woo Woo as the train gets pushed along the tracks. Even adults can become train fanatics well after office hours are over, making the parental bond time fun for everyone.

By the time children reach 3 years, eye-hand coordination is becoming refined and fine motor skills are improving through handling small objects.
In terms of social skills, large train sets are a nice way for children to play alongside one another because they can play together independently but actively, which is normal at this age.

Boredom doesn't set in easily with train sets. If a child has enough add-ons, the imagination can run wild with engineering challenges of track design, bridges, stations, and more. 

BRIO was founded in 1884 in Osby, a small town located in southern Sweden. The firm has been creating quality products since that time. Keeping a heritage of craftsmanship, they are also designing with innovation. Believing in the magic of play, BRIO's mission is to create happy childhood memories. Today BRIO is a global company. They have been a Purveyor to the Royal Court of Sweden since the 1940s.

When designing toys, BRIO strives for four key principles:

  • Toys should be safe to play with
  • They must comply with BRIO’s high-quality standards
  • They must be intuitively easy for the child to understand
  • They must help the child grow through play
BRIO has held onto wood as the primary material used for their toys. Beech hardwood as a material is timeless and very durable. It is not endangered and it is easy to replace. Their wood comes from renewable forests of Southern Sweden to the Northern European mainland. No unique biospheres are ever destroyed. At Sweetpea Toys, we love BRIO. They are thoughtful about toy design, safety, play needs, manufacturing and the care of our planet.
