Briggs “marieb” (So Cal) – Verified Purchase(What’s this?) This review is from: Brio Farm Animal Train (Toy) Great little train, good quality. My two year old son loves transporting the cow and the horse, and attaching the cars to his other trains. Brio trains are so well designed, all of their parts are interchangeable! These cattle cars can fit cargo from other brio cars, which my son loves being able to mix and match. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews Was this review helpful to you? | Comment Reply 4 of 5 people found the following review helpful Excellent!, June 2, 2014 By John Mechalas – Verified Purchase(What’s this?) This review is from: Brio Farm Animal Train (Toy) This is a very nice train set. Everything from the color scheme of the engine and cars to the detailing on the animals is wonderful, and it looks even better in person. It also pairs well with some of BRIO’s older farm-based accessories, like the older-style cattle cars and the milk wagon. My only complaint is that the new cattle cars are entirely plastic. The previous generation of cattle cars had a wood base, and the well that the animals stood in were slotted in the wood. These are a single, molded plastic piece, and they are lighter and feel more cheaply made. But, they do have a fold-down plastic door on the side which is a nice touch. Still, I would have preferred a wooden base in the BRIO tradition. The train engine is mostly wood. It’s painted with an extremely smooth, high-gloss finish that makes it look like plastic, but once you see it up close or have i your hands, you know you are holding a wooden engine. The paint finish on this is really very nice. Only the very front of the engine cab is plastic, for the detailing of the windows, etc. Note that this is one of BRIO’s “tall” engines, even if it doesn’t look like it. It will fit under overpasses just fine, but it won’t fit inside the original tunnel, or any of the short-height tunnel accessories. I like the current animal style. The bodies are wood with painted detail, and the head and neck are molder plastic. They are cute, but are a hair wider than the previous generation animals so they don’t fit in the older cattle cars. That’s another “Why, BRIO, why?” decision that makes no sense to me, hence I knocked a star off. Still, this is a nice train set, and a worthy addition. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews Was this review helpful to you? | Comment Reply Cute!, August 7, 2013 By Amazon Customer – Verified Purchase(What’s this?)
