BRIO Rail and Road Loading Set 32 pieces
It’s time for some heavy lifting. This 32-piece Rail & Road Loading Set is packed with construction themed vehicles including a portable crane wagon and 2 functioning tipper trucks. Take the action to multiple heights using the railway track supporters and connect up to the roads with the railway crossing for a full BRIO World experience.
Crane on wheels: There’s some rocks to clear, so use the Freight Train to pull the mobile Crane Wagon around the tracks to where it’s needed. Use the mechanical crank to raise and lower the crane arm and pick up the rocky loads using the magnetic connection. Swing around and transfer the rocks to either the Load Wagon or one of the Tipper Trucks.
Tipping truck action: Now that the rocks are on the back of the trucks, it’s time to get moving. First, make sure to check under the cab of the truck to see that the engine is working fine. Then load and unload the rocks and other cargo with the functioning tipper at the back of the truck. The rocks slide right off and then it’s off to the next job.
Ready for a wild adventure: Transporting wild animals can be hazardous, so this sturdy wooden train wagon is built to carry even the most ferocious beasts. The lion with his handsome mane and lifelike wooden body fits snugly into the sturdy green railway wagon, which has magnetic connectors at either end for easy coupling and decoupling.
Encourages creativity: This animal adventure encourages children to be creative and helps their development by promoting logical thinking and honing their fine motor skills.
Recommended Age: 3+

BRIO is one of the oldest wooden toy manufacturers in the world and has been around since the late 1800s. BRIO’s story began in 1884 when Ivar Bengtsson started selling woodchip baskets in Denmark. In the early 1900s Ivar and his wife moved to Osby, Sweden, where they expanded their product range and started creating and selling wooden toys for children. In 1908 the Bengtssons transferred the company over to their three sons who officially named the company BRIO - an acronym for the Ivarsson brothers of Osby (BRöderna Ivarsson Osby).
Under the directorship of the three brothers the company continued to flourish while keeping the focus on selling wooden toys for children. Over the years BRIO established itself as an internationally well known brand designing and creating many popular wooden toys like BRIO’s iconic train set. Having been the Purveyor to the Royal Court Of Sweden since the 1940s highlights BRIO’s continuity of extraordinary craftsmanship and quality products.
BRIO celebrated its 130th anniversary in 2014 and promised to “pay tribute to the importance of play, celebrating the child within us”. Focussing on free play is becoming more and more important in our fast paced and time-poor world. BRIO’s emphasis on play goes hand in hand with Oskar’s Wooden Ark’s philosophy of supporting you and your family with only the best and most beneficial sustainable toys.
