With collaborations with Super Mario, Harry Potter, Marvel, Winnie the Pooh, Friends and Star Wars, there is something for children of all ages.

It is a smart speaker that plays books, stories and music. It also has a built-in radio and podcast, it can be used as a night light and clock, and it has made multiple locks more bearable.

You can even make your own custom-made cards so that children can hear their family members' voices or yours whenever they want. Brio is the Swedish brand loved for its railway tracks and transport equipment. Made of FSC-certified wood, Brio trains and tracks are beautifully designed and built to last. A trick if you want to save money is to buy a Brio starter set and then supplement it with additional Ikea tracks.
