I was quite impressed when I got this yesterday! It got here in 2 days!! This is a pretty cool fire truck, I got it for my 3 year old grandson & I know he is just going to love it!! Hurry Christmas, dont be late! :)
Not sure it was worth $10. Maybe more like $5. The designs are from stickers, not painted on, and the ladder falls apart all the time. The sounds are emergency vehicle sounds, but not specifically realistic firetruck sounds. It was also smaller than I expected...only about a foot long. That being said, it is still a fun toy, and my son LOVES it. He even takes it to bed with him. I just hope he doesn't break it. That would be sad!
4 different sounds are loud like a real fire truck would be (like a TV at almost 3/4 to full volume) great outdoors where other sounds would drown out a toy, I might sure everyone is up when my three year old grandson plays with this, four different sounds, rolls well, didn't take him long to remove ladder which is not stick plastic (good thing as it sits above the truck accidently getting hit by it is not a jab or hurt just pressure from running into leg), did not damage ladder by him pulling ladder to full length and back until he learned to roll the ladder out to full length, since he pulled the ladder off (can easily reattach) his Elmo and other stuffed friends and superheroes can ride the fire truck
These Just Kidz brand toys are reasonably priced and have a good collection as well. We have bought a few as gifts and they were all good. Hope to see more variety.
