BRIO Builder Deluxe Set Review

When you think BRIO, trains and tracks more than likely spring to mind, but did you know they also do a fantastic BRIO Builder Deluxe Set? We were recently sent this set to review and it is fantastic, inspiring the most creative constructions I have ever seen my kids create.

Initially, I thought this was perfect for Zachary who has just turned 5 and loves pottering about building lego, doing puzzles and being generally imaginative when it comes to playing, but it turns out that this set is a huge hit with Ben, aged 8 and Zachary's twin sister Zoey too. I have loved seeing the kids sit together and work on wild and wonderful building projects with it.

Inside the Box

The BRIO Builder Deluxe Set comes in a handy storage box and with 270 pieces which means the creative possibilities are endless.

It also comes with an Inspiration Booklet which shows pictures of a crane with a lifting mechanism, a car, little alien character and more.

Typically Zachary insisted we start on the most complicated one, the crane.

It was a little bit of a challenge to build it as you have to work off a picture guide but with a bit of teamwork, we did it and the kids were delighted with the end result. It wasn't long before modifications were being made and they were pimping the crane before rebuilding it into completely different creations.

This is exactly what I love about this set, it is brilliant to see the kids picking up the tools, assembling and reassembling their constructions and then running about the house playing with them and proudly showing off what they have made. 

Our Verdict

The BRIO Builder Deluxe Set is sure to delight and inspires kids to get creative, it is fantastic for helping develop fine motor skills as they use the four tools included to screw, hammer and assemble their creations. The set makes for family fun as everyone works together on a project, but it is also ideal for independent play which keeps kids entertained for hours, making, remaking and adapting their builds. 

I love the fact that it comes with it's own storage box so you can keep everything all in one place and tidy up is easy. The BRIO quality shines through with all pieces included made of strong durable materials sure to withstand the roughest of play and last for years to come. 

Where to Buy

The BRIO Builder Deluxe Set is available to purchase from the usual toy retailers and online from BRIO and Amazon with an RRP of £85. This set gets a massive thumbs up from us.
