REVIEW: BRIO World Freight Ship & Crane

Again, this is a toy which really extends the imaginative and play value of any BRIO collection. Extend children’s awareness of the world around them by learning about the way cargoes are transported around the world – what will their ship carry? Children can load and unload using the movable crane to lift the magnetic loads from the ship and place them on any train wagon from BRIO. We have lots of other magnetic cargoes in our BRIO collection and these all work well together, enhancing play opportunities. Lifting and placing the cargoes is a great way to develop fine motor skills and hand-eye coordination as it definitely requires precision. The set includes the ship, the crane and two magnetic loads; the cargo bays on the ship open up ready to receive their loads. I love the attention to detail – the ship even includes red and green port and starboard lights! The crane swivels through 360 degrees and has magnetic couplings, meaning it can be used with other BRIO vehicles – it’s brilliant, the way all BRIO pieces work together. This is another really well made product with plenty of FSC certified wood used to make the ship. Plenty of fun to be had, especially in conjunction with other BRIO World items.
