Playing with Tobo Tracks (Giveaway)

I’m not a huge fan of playing with cars, but I do love me some tracks. We played with Brio all the time as kids, and when Connor started getting into it my siblings and I were in there just as much as he was.

Connor, of course, has gravitated to Lego, though the Brio still occasionally makes an appearance, especially now that Ethan has discovered it. I think he might be my train buddy.

We’ve got another set of tracks he likes as well – a Tobo Track.

I won this set on my friend Samantha’s blog just before Christmas and there are so many things about it I think are really cool:

  • Made from wood; designed in Canada and made in the US.
  • Comes with a small wooden car but designed to be used with Matchbox cars, Brio trains, and so on.
  • Any edge connects to any other edge, but you can use the numbers to practice matching, addition, or any other educational game you can think of.
  • Tracks can be put together in all kinds of configurations.

Give me some tracks to build and play on and I can play cars quite happily. Especially if I get to play with my little buddy while he makes a “vroom, vroom” sound.

The other thing I really like about this toy is that the makers actively solicit feedback. I got an email from Tomas, Tobo Toys founder and designer, to let me know when to expect it, and then he followed up after I received it to ask what my kids think. He honestly cares what people think and wants to know how to make this toy even better. I like the toy, but ultimately it was his approach to customers that made me want to share this with you.
