BRIO Pirates Layout

For three years, between 2002 and 2004 BRIO had a Pirates theme. Only five items were released in 2002. There were no newly introduced products in the 2 years after that, but I think they did a great job with them. It is of course hard to combine trains and pirates, especially because the golden age of piracy ended some 100 years before the first steam train was even invented! Nevertheless, the few items that were made look great. The box art is great as well and the cannons had a fun sound effect of the cannonball sometimes missing and hitting the water and sometimes hitting the target.
