It goes without saying that Master C loves trains and as I’ve said before, there’s little that he loves more than being sent trains, or train related things, to help me review. Back in January I attended the Toy Fair in London and came home with a load of photos for him of the new Brio Police range that was due out later in the year. Ever since he’s been asking about when he will get some “police trains” to review, and so I was delighted to recently be able to give him the new Brio Police Transport Set to test out.
The concept of the set is that a baddie is trying to steal the gold on a train and the Police are (naturally) trying to stop him. As well as containing enough track to make a small circle, the Brio Police Transport Set comes with a Police Officer, a baddie gold thrifty, a train engine and goods waggon to carry the gold, a level crossing bit of track, a crane to lift the gold, and the all important gold itself.
Upon receiving the set Master C instantly set it up, joined it up with other bits of wooden track, and set out acting out the story of the baddie trying to steal the gold from the train. He may not have heard of the Great Train Robbery, but he certainly knew the story that he wanted to act out with the Brio Police Transport Set, and there seemed to be a large number of similarities between the two!
As with all Brio products, the build quality of the train, people and track is of an incredibly high standard, and it is perfect for little hands to play with. It is also fully compatible with all other wooden railway sets that your little people may have at home.
For ages now Master C has been obsessed with the emergency services and trains, so bringing the two together in the Police Transport Set is a stroke of genius as far as he is concerned. I’m pretty sure he’s not the only little one with similar obsessions, making this Brio set a perfect combination.
