Regular readers will know how much we love the BRIO My Home Town range, and the fact it is suitable for children of 18 months plus – always a tricky age to cater for, as so much is marked as being suitable for 3+. The BRIO My Home Town series is constantly expanding, and every time a new product is added, the play value of your child’s collection really increases – as do the opportunities for imaginative and role play. Children can act out real life scenarios with the playfully designed Camping Set. There are plenty of features and functions to give children plenty of play value – the set includes a car, a caravan, two people, a dog and a canoe – of course, they are all compatible with others in the series.
The car and caravan fasten together; they are generously sized and the big wheels mean they travel smoothly, even across carpet. The canoe slots neatly on top of the car for travelling, and the two people can either fit in the car or lie in the caravan.
Sturdy construction makes for a durable toy that keeps its good looks, and the paint is long-lasting; BRIO toys are always a joy, with their high manufacturing values; children respond well to this and it encourages them to care for their toys to keep them looking good. This set is 75% plastic, 25% wood. If you are going off on a camping holiday, this set is a great way to encourage discussion about what to expect, and to build anticipation. Role play is much loved by children, and it’s a valuable part of play, extending their knowledge and understanding of the world and stimulating imaginative play – this is another well thought-out set which facilitates these important skills. A lovely addition to the series.
