Brio Remote Control Travel Train

Brio Remote Control Travel Train

Spring 2016 Toys
Ages: 3 & Up
Manufacturer: Ravensburger
Price: $39.99

The Brio Remote Control Travel Train set is nicely designed and well made. It has clean lines and bold colors, and mixes (and plays) well with train tracks and related toys. The set includes a controller, an engine and a passenger train car and a figure. The controller has two forward speeds, stop and reverse modes, and sound and light effects. The A & B frequencies permit multiple RC trains to run on the same track.

Our kids became train conductors, passengers and engineers. Using a motorized train with classic wooden tracks has been a huge hit in our home. The kids have built tracks over Legos and blocks, and around animal and people figures to make a complex and interesting town well worth traveling through by train. The Remote Control Travel Train is a fun and welcome addition to a child's train play collection.
