Kids Most Wanted: Brio Classic Figure 8 Train Set

 Welcome to the first ever Gift Guide at The Mommy Island!
I wanted to host a holiday gift guide for my readers, and I wanted it to be fun. I thought to myself, "What is more fun than toys?" and I couldn't think of an answer, so this guide is all about toys. For the next couple weeks I will be reviewing some of this season's hottest toys. I will be sharing my opinions with you, and letting you know where to go to capture these MOST WANTED toys.
The best part about this guide is at the end...you will have the chance to enter to win each of the toys on our Most Wanted list! Make sure you keep your eyes open to watch for these toys, and look out for our most wanted event happening November 15-December1. You just might catch one of these illusive toys, and bring them in without incident! Have fun reading the reviews on our most wanted list, and add them to your own holiday shopping list!





Most Wanted: Brio Classic Figure 8 Train Set. 

When  you think of the holidays and you imagine the classic Christmas. What do you imagine circling round the base of the Christmas tree? A train set...of course! If you follow my blog then you know our little man the Booper absolutely loves trains. I hear about choo-choos and trains, and tracks all day , every day. I have to admit of all the things he could love, trains are fun. I get to singing some of his trains songs with him, and I find myself singing them even by myself. Alright parents, admit it. You've caught yourself singing your child's favorite song even when they aren't around! Yes, we love trains, but not all toy trains are created equal.
There are lots of great train sets out there, but when it comes to wooden train sets Brio Train Sets rock the rails!
We have reviewed several other great toys from Schylling.com, but none of them have thrilled the Booper quite like the Brio Classic Figure 8 Train Set has. He was jumping up and down, and I thought he might hyperventilate from pure excitement. From the time we received this train set until now he has played for HOURS with this set. We were given this set for the purposes of review, but looking at the prices of the Brio train sets on Schylling.com I can honestly say this set is worth every penny! The quality of the little station and each of the pieces is so good, this is a toy I can see being passed down through the years. I love that our Booper can put these pieces together on his own, and create a fun track to play. His imagination soars as I hear him talking and playing with this set! 
This Brio Train set includes:
  • Train Station
  • 3 Trees
  • Engine
  • 2 Train Cars
  • Simple Bridge
  • Track that makes a figure 8 or many other combinations.
Take a look at the Booper playing with his Brio Train set!




Now that you've read our opinions and seen the Brio Classic Figure 8 Train set in action, head over to Schylling Toys to see some of the other great toys they have to offer!

  1. I just love the way he says choo choo! What a cutie your Booper is, and that is a really cool looking train set. My son got one for his birthday{different brand} 2 weeks ago, and it has already broken. This wooden one would definitely be a better choice! Making my top most wanted gifts for my son this year! Thanks =)
