Lily has always been a fan of playing with things that are transport vehicles. She loves trains, cars, planes. But one thing she didn't own was a helicopter. So she was really pleased when she saw on the front of the box that she had been sent a helicopter.
The helicopter is red, white and wood coloured. The red and white parts are made out of plastic and the window area of the helicopter is made from wood. I love that there is a wooden element of this. The propellers are made from black plastic and spin around really well and it also has a window at the front which opens up so the little man can sit inside. Inside there is a little seat where he slots in perfectly.
At the back there is a little flap that you open up and this is where you place the cargo. Any of the brio trains can be put into it but this set comes with 2 trains with 2 pieces of cargo for each train. As usual the trains connect together by using magnets. The pieces of cargo slot onto the train and if you have more brio train cargo this can also be added to the back of the trains.
The cargo is very clever. They are 2 white containers and inside has a wooden block. you push the wooden block into the container and it has a magnet inside which them holds it in place. I think this is great because it stops children getting frustrated when things fall out.
You can buy this toy over at the Brio website for £34.99.
