About this deal

Compatibility should always be considered when purchasing wooden train sets; other aspects should also be considered to ensure an enjoyable play experience. I just bought some used Brio switches that have plastic male connectors (they came as part of a Travel Switching Set). Well, when you build a complicated layout, often you need the last track to be a little longer or shorter to make the whole thing work. Bigjigs Rail and Brio track pieces fit perfectly, and one brand is virtually indistinguishable from the other.

Other Maple Landmark NameTrain sets include their Basic Train Set, a simple circle with a three-car train; the NameTrain Safari Set, a figure-eight with both an animal-watching train and five animals on wheels, and the NameTrain Skyline Train Set, which features a beautiful, red suspension bridge. Did you have a chance to test out the compatibility of IKEA’s tracks available now with other brands? After trying 4-ish of each with each other, they do seem to mostly work together except that the plastic connectors on the old tracks are a tight and sometimes difficult fit with the hole-end connectors on the new ascending/descending tracks. Every train set and track layout is different, so it's impossible to say the exact dimensions, but the great thing about rail is it's fully customisable . Hape's toys are designed to encourage learning through play, so they are popular in kindergartens and follow the Montessori education philosophy.

We'll also investigate whether you can mix and match these sets with other popular toy train brands. The technical storage or access is strictly necessary for the legitimate purpose of enabling the use of a specific service explicitly requested by the subscriber or user, or for the sole purpose of carrying out the transmission of a communication over an electronic communications network. Various other forms of connectors exist, such as plastic or friction connections, which offer different means of joining track pieces together. Another factor to consider when using BigJigs and Brio sets together is the size and shape of the tracks themselves.

They’re a lot more challenging to build with and keep together than wooden tracks (especially on carpet! Fun fact: The name "Brio" comes from the acronym for "Bröderna Ivarsson Osby," which means "the Ivarsson brothers of Osby.As for a motorized train, I wrote a review of almost all of the battery-operated trains on the market last Christmas that might be helpful. But then when I bought a set to review, the first two pieces I pulled out of the container wouldn’t fit with each other…which just doesn’t bode well for being compatible with other brands when you can’t even make tracks that fit with the other tracks in your brand. If you're a children's wooden train set fan, you've probably come across popular brands like Brio, Ikea, Thomas, and Hape.
