Fisher-Price Trio Basic Tub set

We’re excited about Fisher-Price‘s new Trio preschool building system that debuted at Toy Fair last week. Including bricks, sticks and panels, the system is simple enough for younger kids with additional sets that will hold their interest as they get older. The system rolls out in June with three key products.

The Trio Basic Tub set ($30) includes bricks, sticks and panels that click and hold together. The Tub set comes in bright colors and includes custom parts such as figures, wheels and chassis and durable tub for convenient storage.

Fisher-Price Trio Fire Station

The Trio Fire Station ($25) also includes an action panel to set the scene and moving parts like the opening door, fire bell, fire pole and a figure.

The Trio King’s Castle ($75, not pictured) for slightly older kids (5-10) includes action panels so kids can create their favorite scene, a working draw bridge, break-away panel, catapult/battering ram, cross-bow, fire-ball dump, cannon, 6 figures and a horse.

It looks complicated for my 4-year old and not much different than Tinker Toys and Duplos. Not much ‘new’ there, next they will probably re-hash the color-change Hot Wheels cars they made ten years ago.

If it is made in China, I wonder how long it will be until it is recalled. LOL

Purchased the fire station for my grandson. It looked small enough to fit on the patient table in the hospital. He was in the hospital at the time. It does fit and he absolutely loves playing with it. Fisher Price has done it again. I recommend the trio play sets. He likes them better than any of the others he has and he has several other types of building sets.
