Early Learning Centre Lights and Sounds Fire Engine....
This toy was something I knew jack would like and I asked his Nanna to buy him it, and I was right he totally loved it. All Christmas day he wouldn't put it down and it has been one of his most played with toys ever since.
The Fire Engine itself is quite a good size and chunky in design which makes it perfect for small hands. The age range of this toy is from 12 months plus. The Fire engine comes with three little firemen that each have a hole in their underside so that they can be fitted in to the ladder or in the driving seats of the engine.
The toy I think cost around £20 a price that I feel is well worth it for the quality of the toy that you are getting. The Fire engine itself has quite a few buttons to press and in total had 11 different fun sounds, including phrases that the firemen would say such as "start the engines" and of course sounds like the fire engine siren and the fire bell. When you place the little men in the front seats of the fire engine, the sounds of the engine starting will be played which is pretty good.
On the top of the fire engine is a ladder with rescue station for a fireman to stand in. This ladder can be moved up and down and be slightly extended out. On the sides of the fire engine there are two drop down doors, one on each side, and inside one there are lots of fake things a fireman would need such as a hose and spades. These though cannot be taken out of the fire engine and are more for show. The other door however has several more buttons in that each give off a different sound. Jack loves to press them and to be honest the noise of them is not as annoying as some of his toys with sounds can be.
The fire engine has four big chunky wheels meaning that it can be pushed around and glides up and down our laminated floor lovely. As soon as the fire engine moves though the lights (head lights of the fire engine) and siren are set off this is quite good although when tidying up of an evening can be a little annoying.
All in all however I would say this toy is well worth the money and it is a toy that because of its chunky design should last a good few years to come. Jack loves to play with it and I am sure it will be a firm favourite for a while yet. A 5 star rating and a HIGH recommendation for this product.
I do hope this has been of some help to you. Thanks for taking the time to read.
