I’ve mentioned before about Joseph’s love of BRIO and he’s had some great opportunities to review great BRIO sets out with me in the past but the latest he’s been tasked with putting to the test has to be his favourite to date. His was lucky enough to receive the Firefighter Set (33815) and the Rescue Boat (33859) from his friends at BRIO.
The Firefighter Set has a total of 18 pieces including 10 pieces of track, a fire engine, a two piece fire train, gas station, one figure, a level crossing and other accessories.
I think it’s great how the set includes enough track to make a full circuit of track, and instructions of how to do so, as it makes a perfect first train set or a wonderful addition to an existing one. There’s no assembly required at all and you’re ready to play in no time at all!
Joseph’s favourite thing was the fire train with it’s roll out hose and lift up ladder although the fire engine with lights and sounds came a very close second.
The Rescue Boat was a very welcome addition to the Firefighter set, as it would be to any BRIO playset, it includes a car with a trailer that the rescue boat can be easily launched from in the case of an emergency as well as a figure.
As with all BRIO vehicles the trailer and car connect with magnets, are fully interchangeable and fit on the tracks. All BRIO toys are also made to the highest of standards from only the best high quality plastic and sustainable beech wood and this really shows in just how robust they are.
Joseph had a great time making up some fabulous combinations and taking them around the tracks, putting out fires and making daring rescues. It’s been wonderful to see him having so much fun and putting his imagination to good use.
The Firefighter Set and Rescue Boat are both available from www.brio.co.uk and are priced at £39.99 and £14.99 respectively.
