The Brio trademark was first used as a product logo in 1930, little did the Ivarsson family know then that it would become a well established and much loved and trusted children’s toy brand that it is today.

Brio aim for the highest product safety possible and each toy undergoes vigorous testing before going to market. They also ensure that each toy is capable of being certified by all the well known testing institutes.
