Fireman Sam Fire Rescue Centre is the perfect playset for building imagination and acting out scenarios for young children. Aimed at ages 3+, this set has been a hit with my son who takes his fire engines, ninja turtle and various other toys on emergency adventures from the fire station!
This playset does require assembly when you open the box followed by a number of stickers to apply to create a finished toy. I would highly recommend doing this beforehand if you are giving to a young child especially if it is a main present on Christmas day as it took a little bit of time and Mister B did get a little impatient.
The fully constructed station consists of a main fire garage with a push button to open the door quickly when there’s an emergency. There’s also another hideaway for a vehicle at the top and with a lift of a lever, the vehicle speeds out and comes down the ramp at the side ready for action.
On the back of the rescue centre is a door to the office that opens and on top is a helipad. Included in this set is a helicopter which is great for play value, but I must mention that there is no fire engine included which did cause a little disappointment for Mister B. I quickly sent him off to his toy box to find some fire engines and amazingly he came back with three, which immediately cheered him up and started his imagination running for play ideas.
The Fireman Sam Fire Rescue Centre has proved a bit hit with Mister M and he can always be found at it acting out little scenes, making sounds and having fun with his imagination. The set is scaled to play with other die cast vehicles making it versatile and longer lasting as children can use other die cast cars etc to join in the play.
