Bigjigs Play Patrol – Fire Station Train Set

We are super excited to be chosen to be part of the Big Jigs Play Patrol this year. As you may already know my boys are huge train fans so we are absolutely thrilled to be putting a selection of Big Jigs Rail products through its paces throughout the year and will be letting you all know how we got on with them.

Bigjigs Play Patrol

Bigjigs products are designed in the UK and made from high-quality responsibly sourced materials. We’re actually no strangers to this brand and already own a few products from their range.

The lovely Big Jigs people sent us a Fire Station Train Set which my boys were delighted about.

Bigjigs Fire & Rescue Train Set

The Firestation set comes with 39 pieces. Below are some of the items that are included:

  • Fire Station Tunnel
  • Fire Engine
  • Firemen
  • Road signs
  • Train
  • Train track

The set is suitable for children aged 3+ and can be played with as a standalone set or can be combined with other items from the Bigjigs Rail range and other compatible wooden train sets too.

My boys are 4 and 6 and really enjoyed playing with this set. E followed the instructions and put the track together easily by himself.

My youngest is massively into role play at the moment and has loved playing out fire rescue scenes with this set. One of his favourite parts is rescuing the cat from the tree!

My only slight niggle with this set is that the wooden tree doesn’t stay standing by itself once the cat has been added to it as it’s imbalanced. Otherwise, it’s a huge thumbs-up from the boys – they have had hours of fun with it so far and have already added this set to the rest of their collection.

  16. Aww this looks fab! My younger half bro would love this ! #KCACOLS

    This looks fab. My son had a similar wooden train set when he was younger and it was brilliant, so much more durable than the plastic ones. We passed it on to my nephew and it’s still going strong x

  18. I love these old-fashioned style wooden toys. Wish my two were little again! #KCACOLS

  19. Looks like a brilliant set, my boys would love the bridge and the tree with the ladder #KCACOLS

  20. We love wooden toys in this house! They last so much longer don’t they! #KCACOLS

  21. Paula from Her Life Is Love

    Is the bridge pretty stable on its own? I have a train set from a different company and the bridge isn’t self supported so it falls way too easily under toddler hands. #KCACOLS

  22. Andrea @ Topsy Turvy Tribe

    This is brilliant my boys would love it too. Have a Brio set but I like how colourful and wooden this is #KCACOLS

  23. Not heard of this brand but looks good. Big fans of wooden toys. Mrs H xx #KCACOLS

  29. We love Bigjigs, so versatile! #kcacols

  30. Ah wow! My little boy loves a train set. He would go mad for this. He has a wooden pirate ship. I personally love wooden toys. They feel more traditional and better quality. It’s so refreshing to hear the materials are responsibly sourced too.

  31. we have a smaller one of their sets and my daughter loves it. Having wood tracks is so much nicer than your standard plastic fare #KCACOLS

  32. I absolutely love big jigs toys and this sounds so much fun! I do really notice a difference with the branded track compared with the supermarket cheapo ones lol! #KCACOLS

  33. I love wooden toys! They’re look lovely.

  34. This all looks super fun! Unfortunately My boys have outgrown those kind of toys. Otherwise I would seriously be tempted to buy one! #KCACOLS

  35. I love wooden toys and I really love bigjigs toys too. Cygnet would absolutely love this. Pen x #KCACOLS
