I purchased this as a Christmas gift for my 4 year old son. He LOVES anything TRUCKS. He has large carrier trucks with lights and sounds and functions... he has trash trucks, excavators, dump trucks. But he was missing a BIG Firetruck. You can't find anything in your big box stores... and I came across this. I thought this was perfect. I was quite disappointed when I got it. It makes a couple sounds but that's it. The ladder moves but not easily... it sounds as if it is going to break off as you move it around and then it doesn't even extend out to make the ladder taller. No doors open... it is quite boring and doesn't keep his attention long. Wouldn't recommend this product. Keep looking and pay more money for something better!
Rated 3 out of 5Â by LN09DR11 A little disappointed
We bought this for my son last year for Christmas. A month later the back bumper was starting to pull away and the bottom of the truck was slightly bent. My son never played rough with it, his favorite thing about it was the sounds. About 2 months after Christmas, the sounds started to sound strange. Assuming the batteries needed to be replaced, I changed them. It seemed to be ok for a couple more weeks, before the sounds once again sounded strange. I changed the batteries again and it hasn't worked since. He was very disappointed that it quit working, but it still plays with it. He makes the sounds himself now, which is much louder than the truck ever was!! He has fun with it, but I could have gotten better quality for a much lower price.

I bought this for Christmas for my 2 year old grandson, usually I am very careful about small, easy to swallow, pieces. This comes with a recommended age of 4, but I did not see anything my very curious grandson could get in trouble with. He is not much of a toy child, he prefers the outdoors, so I was worried whether he would like this. He loved it! It makes great sounds and lights up, it was the hit of the day for him and it has been well played with all week and no problems, breakage, or other such problems. Another well made toy.

I purchased 2 of these trucks for Christmas for my two 2Â½ year old grandsons. They absolutely loved them! As a matter of fact, once opened, they wouldn't stop playing with them to even open another gift! They loved that the ladder extended and the realistic sounds of the siren and horn. This truck is deffinately worth the price. Tonka isn't metal anymore, but it is well made durable plastic and I'm certainly happy with my purchase!
