Bigjigs Toys Review

As the mother of three young children, I have an appreciation for high quality wooden toys. I have found that my children will play with their wooden toys for hours at a time and I love to see them “unplugged” as their imaginations soar.

Bigjigs® Toys is a family operated business that has a wonderful selection of wooden toys for boys and girls. From train sets, doll houses, heritage playsets and wooden puzzles there is sure to be the perfect toy to delight a special child of all ages.

From the Bigjigs® Rail line collection, my seven year old son received the Freight Train Set for his birthday and he was overwhelmed with excitement. This heirloom quality wooden train set includes 130 pieces (it can be combined with any wooden railway set) and is perfect for boys and girls who love trains and especially those who like to build. All three of my children played together cooperatively for hours building their train set. It includes a virtual world for children to build including tracks, two freight trains, trees (forest), bridges, a tunnel, a turntable, a triple engine shed, vehicles, people, houses and a crane depot. My son loves to build so he was thrilled that this set includes both low rail tracks and high rail tracks. He diligently followed the directions and with only a little bit of help from me he and his siblings proudly built their train set. A favorite part of this train set is the crane depot because the kids can actually move around and unload their “cargo”. They also loved changing the tracks with the turntable and driving their train around the rails. I appreciate that this set includes a beautiful wooden box that stores all of the pieces of the train set when it is not in use (rarely in our house) and it is designed with a handle to make it easy for children/adults to carry with them. The Bigjigs® Freight Train Set is available for purchase for $189.95 which is a good value in my opinion for an heirloom quality toy. In fact, I already envision passing down this set to my grandchildren in years to come…………


Bigjigs® Toys also has beautiful collection of Heritage Playsets including a Princess Palace, Wildlife Park (I love this one), King Arthur’s Castle, Dinosaur Island and the Blossom Cottage. My five year old daughter is dreaming about the Rose Cottage because she has decided she is “ready for her first dollhouse”. I showed it to my husband who enjoys woodworking as a hobby and he said that this cottage looks like it would make a wonderful Christmas present for Hannah this year. She is going to be so excited!

I am very impressed with the quality of the Bigjigs® Toys Freight Train Set because the attention to detail is excellent and I really like the bright colors and variety of pieces that are included in this set to keep it interesting for my 4, 5 and 7 year old. You are invited to visit Bigjigs® Toys to browse the entire selection of high quality wooden toys. There are a variety of price points for virtually every budget…..which toy is your favorite?
