Do you find that all of a sudden everything seems to fall into place and things just seem to work together? We had never entertained the idea of railways with the girls but within the space of one week we were offered multiple reviews of wooden railway items and BRIO, and to be honest we are all loving it!
Wooden Railways got in touch with us via Instagram to see if we would like to review some of the extension packs they supply and when I told them we had no railway goods at all they kindly supplied us with trains etc too (and Haribo – who doesn’t love sweets!)
Included in the parcel were 2 of the track packs from Bigjigs Rail. One is the Low Level Track Expansion Pack – 25 pieces and the other is the Curves & Straights Expansion pack – 24 pieces. Stone Bridge plus train, petrol tanker, coal cart and milk cart.
How you put the track together is completely up to you and I love that there are pieces where two roads split off to create larger tracks. Having the ramp end pieces or track barriers are a great way to cut off the track too as I always think it looks unfinished if there is a random track piece at the end, our track looked amazing thanks to these small finishing touches.
As I mentioned above, within a week we had two large BRIO sections to add to the track and make it something really special and expand upon our ever growing city. The girls are already asking for more track and city pieces so that they can create a full scene, I can see this becoming our newest addiction and I am looking forward to finding our next pieces for Amelias 4th birthday next month.
I have always had a fascination with wooden toys and think they look so much nicer, especially with the trains and sections all matching, they seem to have a more child like quality to them than metal. The rail traffic all have magnets on their bumpers so can be attached to each other in multiple combinations too.
The track expansion packs are £15.49 each, Stone bridge is £9.49 and train sections from £3.49. All available from Wooden Railways.
We were sent these for the purpose of this review, all views and opinions are our own and genuine.
