Providing the girls with toys which allow their minds to explore and their imaginations run wild through creative play really helps them grow. When I see them working together to create or build a toy set, I know they are also building upon life skills, cooperation, patience and team work. We recently partnered with BRIO to learn more about their line of clean and simple designs toys for ages 6 months and up. You may remember BRIO from your own childhood as they’ve fueled the minds of little learners since 1884. BRIO prides itself on the clean and simple design so that children can build upon it with their own imagination. I’m helping BRIO spark that creativity by hosting a creative play giveaway.

Take to the country! The wooden railway brings you over the rocks to a hidden countryside pasture. When your horse is up for a field trip away from its beautiful shed, give it a shower and lead it to the train. The wagon has a perfect design for horse transport, complete with a foldout ramp. Smooth riding, indeed.
The Countryside Horse set comes with 28 pieces, which includes a horse, train, wagon and play figure. This toy is recommended for ages 3 and up – both of my girls, including AB who is under 3, really enjoyed playing with this set.
