At Brio, playing hard is working hard. The Swedish toy company, founded in 1884, is committed to helping children learn with toys that are designed simply and beautifully, for fully open-ended play that allows them to make the most of their own natural curiosity. The toys, made mainly with beech wood (which is sturdy, highly durable and a renewable resource) and thermoplastic (which can withstand even the biggest toddler tantrums!), are not a means to an end – rather, they’re about equipping children with ideas and inspiration to boost their coordination, creativity, planning and concentration skills. All Brio toys are free of PVC, lead and phthalates.
Music is beneficial to a child’s intellectual, social and emotional development. By learning to play an instrument, toddlers get to experience how the body and mind can work together, while practicing their hand-eye coordination, critical thinking and self-expression. The environmentally-friendly Brio Musical Xylophone has five different delicate tones to create new melodies, and includes storage for the music stick underneath the xylophone.
