I was only playing with this toy train bridge yesterday at work, so I thought I would tell you about it.
This Brio wooden lifting bridge is a good addition to a brio or brio compatible train set.
My group of children and I built a train track across the classroom floor and added this bridge. The bridge includes to ascending tracks. When fitted into place the length including the 2 ascending tracks 648mm/25.5." Brio tracks allow wooden trains to run along the two parallel grooves on the track. Brio track has grooves on both sides to make them reversible a piece of track that curves right can be turned over to make it curve in the opposite direction. One piece of track connects to the next with a male or female connector like a jigsaw piece has. This bridge is a lifting bridge. There are two short towers into which the ends of the bridge fit. The bridge itself is a long piece off Brio rail track with green plastic safety barrier sides to prevent any trains falling off it. There is a short piece of string attached to the centre of the bridge this is attached to a control tower at one end of the bridge. This has a little handle attached and the bridge can be raised and lowered by winding the handle.
The height of the bridge is enough for a small toy car to go under without it being raised but for a toy lorry or a double Decker bus the bridge will need to be raised. Your child could join the pieces of track together in such as way that the train track could go under this bridge.
I think this bridge is a good addition makes the track more interesting.
The group of children I had this afternoon had a great time playing with this as part of their train set.
This bridge will help develop your childs imaginary play and help develop their fine motor control as they have to fir the male or female joining studs to other track and wind the handle to raise and lower the draw bridge .
http://www.woodentoystore.co.uk £19.95 and at http://www.toysrus.co.uk/Toys-R-Us £24.99 , from http://www.amazon.com it costs $54.94 http://www.amazon.co.uk its £16.99,so as you can see it’s a good idea to search around for the best price . Brio is expensive but worth it . You can buy cheaper compatible sets the Tesco ones are I personally would buy the cheaper basic tracks but stick to the Brio trains and additions.
I think Brio wooden trains are fantastic they are well made from Beech or Birch wood, this wood is free from toxic chemicals was grown not using insecticides . They are ve4y durable lasting many , many play hours . Brio trains are ones that will last and be handed on to the next generation , my grand children’s set will go ion the loft after they have grown out of it for my great grandchildren to play with. Brio wooden toys were first made in Sweden 1884 by basket maker Ivar Bengtsson and is now a global company.
Would I recommend this lifting bridge by Brio ? Yes most definitely
