With Easter coming very soon if you are still looking for a great gift to get your child who is over the age of three let me tell you about BRIO. BRIO sent me Countryside Horse Set that is part of a train set with a ride through the country! The wooden railway brings you over the rocks to a hidden countryside pasture. When your horse is up for a field trip away from its beautiful shed, give it a shower and lead it to the train. The wagon has a perfect design for horse transport, complete with a foldout ramp that includes 28 pieces in all. It is a great toy of discovery and stimulation for a child that age teaching hand-eye coordination becomes refined, and fine motor skills are improving through handling small objects. This is a period where children will play alongside each other, but cannot share toys or play actively together. Since their hand coordination is at a pretty high level, children this age like to help out in the kitchen; scrubbing vegetables, snapping peas, tearing salad, and peeling bananas. Cutting with safety scissors is also fun. This is also a period when children’s imagination truly blossoms, and where they’ll start enjoying all types of pretend play: such as “playing house” with imaginary friends, dolls and stuffed animals.
My Opinion: I have seen train sets but none as detailed and simple for kids to grasp and hold with lots of different play options that can be played with for hours. It would make a great gift for any boy as you know boys love trains.
