Toot Tooooooot! Calling all train lovers! BRIO is (or should be) a toy staple for any child’s toy box. It has become a timeless sustainable wooden toy loved by all ages. It is pretty much indestructible too, being handed down through generations in Europe throughout its non-motorised wooden train set reign. We were sent the Brio Smart Tech Engine Set with Action Tunnels.
With the new Smart Tech range, BRIO has become even more interactive, bringing the trains and tracks to life but still with that same classic look and feel we all love. Smart Tech uses wireless technology created by radio frequency and needs 2x AA batteries, which aren’t included in the box but easy to fit.
It is really simple too, no wired tracks mean no messing around as an adult trying to set it up before tantrums start. You simply press ‘go’ on the Smart Tech train and set up the Smart Tech tunnels around the track. The train will then interact with the pre-programmed tunnels as it is pushed around the tracks throughout play. It can stop, start, go backwards, change speed, honks it’s horn or even flash its lights, giving the child (or adult) a more authentic train experience.
The Smart Tech range fits with all BRIO track sets, old and new, meaning the possibilities of where the new Smart Tech trains will go are endless. There are several interactive BRIO Smart Tech sets available, meaning the possibilities for a full city of Smart Tech and Classic BRIO fun is at the fingertips of everyone involved.
