My son loves to play with his Brio trains and tracks. He has a very large collection of tracks, trains and modules (you can see some of his here: My son’s Brio tracks). He also kinda of like Thomas and Friends (I still have to meet a little boy who doesn’t). So while looking for his next birthday gift I found out that some of the Thomas and Friends tracks are also compatible with his current Brio sets! He might just get some Thomas trains as presents real soon.
There are various Thomas and Friends trains and tracks sets. Not all are Brio compatible tho. If you want them to be Brio compatible, you’ll need to buy the Thomas wooden sets. Note that these wooden sets won’t be compatible with the Take’N’Play series. Rule of thumb regarding compatibility: if it’s one of the plastic Thomas sets it won’t fit with your Brio. Here’s a few to get you started:
Thomas And Friends Wooden Railway – Quarry Adventures Set: a nice starter set
I will probably go for the little trains only, as my son already have enough tracks and buildings. I am sure he’ll be thrilled to have a few Thomas engines. Regarding the single trains, if they are labeled as “Trackmaster” or “Take N Play” they won’t fit your wooden tracks.
