Brio Builder Record and Play Set

June 29, 2020



(Brio $39.99)


Our five-year old tester did a lot of FaceTime calls to show off the talking Robot he and his dad built. This wasn't his first Brio Builder kit—but it is his favorite. He already knew how to use the tools to assemble this classic wooden building set, but this one has added dimension—sound! A battery operated record and play feature allowed him to add his own special voice effects to the robot he built and motor sounds of his own making to his. airplane. The set comes with 68 pieces: play components, the recorder, tools and ideas for aspiring engineers. Once mastered, these are likely to be used for new and original structures. It's a real hands-on STEM toy and one with potential for follow up dramatic play. Marked 3 and up, but we think this will be wasted on preschoolers. It makes a far more appropriate choice for early school kids who have the dexterity to build as well as follow directions ( with parental help) and enjoy the challenges.
