Developmental Value

Aside from building sets, 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.

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 24-36 months, eye-hand coordination is becoming refined and fine motor skills are improving through handling small objects.

Regarding social skills, large train sets are a nice way for children to play alongside one another because they can play independently but actively together which is normal at this age.

Boredom doesn't usually 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.
