BRIO was founded in 1884 in Osby, a small town located in southern Sweden. Today, the small family-run business has grown into the global company BRIO AB, with subsidiaries in Germany, France and Japan and distributors around the world. Today, BRIO is owned by Ravensburger.
Brio is made from 100% from FSC® certified Beech wood, which is super dense and highly durable. Their paints are tested against the highest safety standards and they only use non-toxic colours that are free from metals and phthalates. They test to 125% safety standards, using greater heights when carrying out drop tests and greater pressure when performing load tests.
