What is it
Smart Tech is the new train technology from BRIO! Simply press go on the engine and set up the smart tech arches around the track. The engine will automatically detect each arch and do exactly what is shown. It could stop, start, go slow, turn on the lights or make a sound.
Where will the train go next? and what will it do? it’s all up to you. Arrange the tunnels and station and watch a new train adventure unfold. Thanks to interactive smart technology the train stops, honks the horn, backs up or blinks its lights. You make it happen!

What our experts think
This smart train set is a great way of introducing children to cause and effect logic. By experimenting with the buttons and moving the tunnels, our testers soon found out their actions had consequences – with trains changing direction, stopping and flashing their lights. Arranging the tracks and different tunnels and stations also helps children to develop their problem-solving skills.
Playing with trains is great for children as it allows them to understand real-life concepts – they can reenact and make sense of different scenarios they may have seen, which develops their understanding of the world around them. We did find our older testers found the set easier to understand and use, as our younger testers needed a lot of patience to watch the train instead of pushing it manually!
