MALMÖ, Sweden, Feb. 13, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Good play makes the world a better place and is essential to a child's development. At BRIO, we believe that you are never too old to play and grow—and the possibilities for play are endless.
Welcome to the BRIO World
Enjoy a ride into the ever expanding BRIO World—an open-ended play system that inspires creativity with real life scenarios—both on and off the track. Whether you are a boy or a girl, young or old, you can let your imagination run free.
"Today's BRIO World is much more than railway," said Michael Heun, head of product development at BRIO. "It's a wide and diverse play system for children to recreate the real world, including everything from trains, cars, boats, and animals to something as spectacular as a roller coaster."
In 2016, BRIO will offer US families more than 130 toys for children of all ages—a wooden pull along Horse designed to captivate toddlers as they take their first steps; a Countryside Horse Set that welcomes both boys and girls to enjoy the magic of play; a Remote Control Travel Train that can ride the classic wooden rails; plus dozens more play sets that combine to offer one delightfully immersive BRIO World.
Designed in Sweden, our products are intended to support a child in their development. The iconic BRIO look—simple but smart—inspires curiosity and allows a child's imagination to run free. Because we believe that play is universal—not gender specific—BRIO products are designed to appeal to boys and girls alike. Our wooden toys are made of 100% FSC®-certified wood from sustainably managed forests and are built to last, for play experiences that grow with the child and stand the test of time.
BRIO will showcase its 2016 lineup of playthings at the New York International Toy Fair, Jacob Javits Center in New York, February 13 – 16. Registered media can preview the full line at booth #2403.
