Big Fire Truck, Medium Siren! Jun 29, 2008
My son got this for his 2nd birthday about 8 months ago and he adores it. The fact that you activate flashing lights and siren by pressing the bar on the truck cab accounts for a large part of its attractiveness. The little man who bends at the hips(Michael) fits easily into the cab or the ladder seat, and other Little People without bendable legs, including animals, can fit in the seats as well. The hose with nozzle and nozzle on the ladder "to spray Wawa!" (water) are popular features. It is durable and rolls well, and has stood up to being knocked off shelves and tables. The batteries haven't needed replacing though it is played with daily. We have misplaced the cones and little axe (which was popular to start with) as they are small, but that doesn't decrease its play value. I am also happy that Michael is not a blond white kid (having an "ethnic" toddler myself)
My main complaint is that the white ladder is NOT fixed onto the grey swivel seat. It only "clamps" pincerlike onto little bumps, and the way it is positioned, any pushing down on it causes it to lever off with great ease. I have to listen to "help me! help me!" constantly when my son plays with it, as within minutes of me replacing the ladder, his little hands knock it off again. And though easy to lever off, it is not as easy to put on, ie takes an adult. I admit to often hiding the tall white ladder so I am not forced to replace it over and over. The truck is still very usable without that ladder, but it is a shame that in a vehicle so well built in general, that Fisher Price didn't use metal screws or some other proper fixation method to ensure that it stays on. It is the only Fisher Price item we own that is illconceived for hands-on play and I hope they fix this in future editions.
I highly recommend it nonetheless for toddlers. Great play value they'll keep coming back to.

Firetruck Oct 24, 2007
By Gramma Sally
My two year old grandson is into fire trucks and this is one of his favorites. i did put away the storage cones and other small attachements until he gets older because they just ended up all over the floor.

Fisher Price Fire Truck Nov 08, 2008
By Douglas G. Griffin
We bought this truck for my sons 2 birthday. I chose this paticular one because it was made by Fisher Price, who I've allways thought made very fun and sturdy toys. However, the white ladder keeps popping of with just the slightest amount of pressure. The rest of the truck is well made. The sirens are very realistic and not to loud. The Michael figure bends at the hips, he fits well into the seats. If only the ladder stayed on. I will think twice about choosing Fisher Price over other brands now.

Exceptional toy Oct 18, 2009
By Lynn High
This toy is very satisfactiry for our grandson, who is disabled with Spinal Muscular Atrophy. Shopping for him is challenging at best, but he is like any other toddler 3 years of age. He is very interested in firemen with the lights & sounds of all the rescue rigs. Having "Little People" means that he is able to hold one at a time in his little hand. He is unable to play with it as another child would, but this does work & it makes him smile!

Great Firetruck! Jul 07, 2008
By Tiffany Desgroseilliers
My son saw this in the store and I ordered it as a surprise for him. He loves to push the siren button and push the truck across the room. He puts "Michael" in every seat on the truck and pretends to spray the water. The ladder and cones are a nice touch and lend it some realism. I am thinking of getting the construction truck next since this one was such a hit. My son is 16 months and loves anything with wheels and sounds.
