Brio was founded by Ivar Bengtsson in 1884. His three young sons joined him in selling high quality wooden toys in Osby Sweden under the name Brothers Ivarsson at Osby...Brio. From humble beginnings to a reputation as the number 1 Wooden Toy Company in the world. Brio standards remain.
Hold a Brio toy in your hand, turn it over, study it, and you can feel the difference. Your grandchildren's children will too. These toys are made to last.
Brio Wooden Toys are made from Beechwood & birch...Hardwoods that make durable toys built for years of play. No decals, just the highest quality high gloss lacquer. (Amazingly, Brio's famous wooden railway trains & accessories receive up to 60 coats of non-toxic paint to resist chipping & maintain bright color.)
Brio Toys are safe, durable & open-ended. They bring children heightened creativity, unrestrained imagination, and ingenious play experiences. Remarkable toys. Fun that lasts and lasts and lasts. Now that's a cost effective proposition.
