Our Thoughts: From the very moment I saw these two sets I thought they were adorable. Cute little track set ups with a little town. A fire station where a fire truck can park and fun little stores to shop in and out of with the cute little characters I knew my 3 yr old would love it. When I opened up the package and began to set it up he was smiling from ear to ear. He grabbed the firetruck and began to drive it around he carpet. He was really excited and kept yelling for me to set up the track. The Fire truck was the perfect size for his little hands. The Fire station fits together and has a roof that opens up and falls down to the side as if it were stairs to walk up and in. The inside is decorated as a fire house should be. Richard Scarry can ride on top of the truck or stand in the fire station waiting for the next call. There’s a button to press that will tilt up the fire truck to roll out of the fire station doors and onto the road.
Setting up the sets together was fun. We did have a few extra tracks so this can be set up together. My little guy loved the apple car with the worm and I thought it was really neat that the top of the store opened up to you can see inside or put one of the characters in.
The set is perfect for children ages 3 and up as long as they don’t still put things in their mouth. Fun little characters would be great to act out the Richard Scarry story books that can be read anytime during the day or before bed.
