This would be great as a starter set for a younger child. It has a decent number of play features for the price, with the crane very much the heart of the action.
If your child would enjoy lifting the load from the railway wagon to the lorry and back again, stopping the lorry at the railway crossing, etc. then this would be a perfect fit, but there's no real flexibility for changing the track and road layouts with the pieces included.
We bought this for Christmas for my son last year when he was five. He was very happy with it, but it hasn't ended up seeing as much use as I thought. Maybe it doesn't add that much if you already have a couple of Brio sets. I think he would have enjoyed this a lot more if it had been his first set a year or two earlier.
This helicopter is typical BRIO quality and nicely made. My son loved playing with it and came up with lost of role play rescue ideas. It can be used alongside other Brio/wooden toys such as train track.
The size isn't huge - it's proportionate to a Brio train, if that makes sense.
It's a shame the magnet isn't a little more powerful so it could pick up and carry some of the rail accessories.
The propeller spins nicely and overall it's a great toy.
Brio is brilliant. The number of options available mean there's always something new and exciting and it keeps my boy occupied for hours on end. This set is a lovely little addition to his train tracks. The only thing I would say, is that if you bought this without owning any other Brio it would be a bit boring. There's not much track so it really needs to be added to other bits. That said, the magnetic cranes are great but not enough on their own! Only buy if you already have Brio!
This brio gold wagon has magnetic pieces so it's well worth buying the brio magnet crane as well. It's well made and although battery powered, it seems like it'll last a long time before the batteries need replacing. This toy is the sort of thing little kids love and my son loves it.
I've yet to be disappointed with Brio product - well made, rugged and we know from experience that they last for years - 30+ years in our case as the grandchildren are now enjoying Brio originally bought for their parents. The girls play with it as much as the boys so a great buy for any youngster and Granny and Grandad always end up on the floor playing with the Brio too.
We got this to go with the limited edition 2016 gold train for our son’s 4th Birthday and it did not disappoint! It’s high quality, and lights up really bright and lovely! We’ve had so much fun pushing it along the tracks! Excellent value for money!
This was a good purchase for the price I got it. It is very sturdy as most of the Brio products. It has a lot of plastic though more than I would like as it is obvious for the crane and some road parts (grey). It is playable as it is advertised you can lift the engine with no hands just the crane and then move it to the other transportation vehicle and use your finger to keep it in place after lowering the crane and before raising it again. Truck is great and I loved the train. Great product with added fun factor that will also add some hours of play to any left-aside brio set.
