We’ve been so lucky to receive yet more Brio this month and you may have already seen it in action over on our Instagram Stories. The battery operated action train has really brought our ever expanding Brio set to life.

Once I’d firgured out it was the screw on top I needed to remove and not the bottom I added a battery and we were ready to go. Jack had already built a track whilst I set up the train ready and wasted no time putting it to work.

The set consists of 3 parts, the front train which is the battery operated part, a mixer that moves round and a final wagon carrying what looks like coal that tips side to side.


This is a toy that you definitely need to see in action so I’ve added a video below of some clips of Jack playing with it.

We had a lot of fun testing out how many other Brio trains this one could pull which was a great experiment. The record was adding another 9 carridges onto the main train and it still managing to move although with some difficulty.
The switch on top turns the train on and off and it also has a feature to go backwards much to the delight of the Littke Tots!
The only downside was this train doesn’t fit under our existing Brio tunnel (which is from a very old hand me down set so I’m not sure if this would apply to the newer ones) so we just leave this out when building tracks for this train.
The Brio Battery Operated Action Train is available from the Brio website with an RRP of £22.99 which is definitely worth it in my opinion as we’ve had so much play out of it and it’s really brought our set to life.
