Check out these BRIO themes!
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. Isn't that fun. Where will the train go next? And what will it do? It’s all up to you.

Bigjigs - 5/5
- A bit bigger than BRIO in width and length - feels more sturdy due to larger size.
- Compatible with BRIO support.
- Given the price advantage I will order these from now on instead of BRIO supports.
- When stacked pieces click together
BRIO - 3/5
- Sturdy and compact. Perhaps compact size might help out when you are building larger track.
- When stacked pieces do not click together
- Item is okay and well made - however, I don't see price justifiable when there exists Bigjig's equally compatible support - which includes two climb rails as well.
- If you want everything in green I guess this is your choice.
The only reason I am giving these 4 stars rather than 5 is because the price is beyond ridiculous! We have a ton of Brio trains and train sets (really, it's embarrassing how many we have) so I'm used to their relatively high price, but this item is their single biggest rip off. You only get 2 track supports, all of which is plastic except for the built in track. While these are definitely sturdy and well built, you can't justify charging $15 for a couple ounces of plastic.
I plan on setting up a price watch for this item using camelcamelcamel.com and waiting for the price to drop to around $10 before I'll pick up another few sets (definitely check this site out if you want to set up price drop alerts or check to see a products life price history).
Brio knows 2 of these track supports isn't enough to do much, so they're definitely counting on people like myself returning for more. And I feel obligated to shame Brio for charging such a ludicrous amount for what amounts to very little, lightweight plastic. Brio's Double Suspension Bridge comes with 20x more wood and plastic than this yet cost only a few dollars more.
Unfortunately there aren't any alternate stacking track supports that will work for us. The Maxim brand doesn't have built in track which makes for unsteady and collapse-prone layouts, and Bigjigs doesn't have the curved indentation in the underside of their supports to allow for our Brio and Thomas trains to go through.
After using several other bridging pieces (all from Brio) for our grandsons Brio trains, these are the best for the youngest kids (3 & 4 year olds). Except for the 3 piece all wooden bridge from Brio, the plastic “rock” bridges and the ones w wooden bases with plastic top, this set stays up unless they are purposely knocked over. That goes for the Brio Suspension bridges as well. The older kids do just fine with the more precarious bridges.
Bump the track, bump the bridges, they stay together. That is important with 3 & 4 year olds playing with the trains!
> BRIO stacking track supports have taken the frustration out of building hills. The track easily connects and doesn't slide off when the kids are playing.
> You can stack them so that the track crosses perpendicular, above or below. Very cool.
> A bit pricey
> Some standard sized (non-BRIO) train cars bump when passing underneath
We've purchased 2 pair and will likely purchase another couple this Christmas. They've really made a difference in the type and duration of play.
Top international reviews
I do want to dispute another reviewer though - their review said that Mighty Red Action Locomotive (referred to in our house as 'Big Red') cannot pass under the stacking support if one is on top of another. I have tried with them stacked in cross formation, eg. top level goes north/south while bottom one goes east/west and Mighty Red Action Locomotive passes under just fine. The review stating the problem was written in 2018, so perhaps it was a problem before and Brio have since fixed it by making it taller?
Here's the problem: the stacking supports are too short by a few millimeters, blocking the Mighty Red Action Locomotive's front chimney when ascending or descending and preventing it to pass under the stacking support.
Why can't Brio ensure compatibility between its own products ? This shameful error turned a long awaited - and quite costly - event into a complete disappointment. Be warned !
If you use smaller, non-powered Brio trains, there's no problem but why should you be punished because you spent good money on their supposedly compatible, top-of-the-line product?
Alas, they are so expensive. We watch 'Izzy's Train Time' on youtube and see the amazing things we could build if only we had thirty of them. But it is not to be.
We replaced ours with these ones recently ( as well the smaller - red topped ones - from BRIO ) and the set has yet to crumble. They are sturdy, good quality, durable and versatile. Very well thought through and makes the train set 100x more enjoyable.
