BRIO Turntable and Figure 2 Pieces
Railway turntable with seven different track connections, rotating centre unit large enough to fit any engine train from BRIO World, and a train engineer roleplay figure. Twist the red knob on the turntable and watch the large central unit rotate until it clicks into one of the seven-track positions. The poseable train engineer figure is ready to work the turntable from his two-level control station – just make sure that he holds on tight when the turntable starts to spin.
Connect the turntable to your existing wooden railway in seven different directions and create a new centrepiece for your BRIO World layout. Real-life based railway play helps children to understand and learn about their environment in a fun way, whilst also developing fine motor skills.

Warning. Not suitable for children under 36 months. Choking hazard due to small parts.
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.
