    Editorial Review

    It's a three-alarm blaze of fun for youngsters with PlayHut'sTwist 'N' Fold Fire Engine, another in their imaginative series ofquick-to-assemble, spring-loaded, collapsible nylon meshconfigurations. Here, a bright red, 49-by-24-inch, stylized rectangularfire truck replica, almost 3 feet tall, forms itself from the apparatuswhich, fully folded, fits into a bag no larger than a grocery sack. Theonly assembly required is to attach the nylon rear door (complete witha replica of a fire ax) and the inflatable steering wheel to the Velcrotoggles on the main structure. Unfortunately, the included printedmatter barely mentions these two extra pieces, leaving assemblersguessing as to how to attach them. The steering wheel is a no-brainer,but the back door panel possesses one toggle and there are fourpossible loops for it. Parents might also be annoyed by the fact thatthe foldaway instructions are twice as lengthy as those forsetup. --Tony Mason ... Read more

    Editorial Review

    Nothing gets a kid's attention like a fire engine racing by, and nowhere's a bright red version that's pleasingly kid size. The Fire Engine for Twois bright red, 31 inches long, 32 inches tall, and made of tough and ruggedplastic. The ignition key turns with a satisfying ratchety sound, the steeringwheel rotates, and the front wheels are entirely mobile, making quick turns andsudden reversals a snap. It's powered, in the best Flintstones tradition, byyour little one's feet moving under the seat, and there's an extra seat in backfor a friend to ride along. Like any proper emergency vehicle, it also has asiren and flashing red light, located right on the dashboard, that activate withthe press of a button. Whether it's an emergency run to the cookie jar or a dollthat needs a trip to the hospital, the Fire Engine for Two will get a couple ofkids going in a hurry. --John Longenbaugh ... Read more

    1-0 out of 5 stars Wheels do not turn
    We bought this for our 2 year old who loves these ride on toys. Unfortunately we had to return the item because the wheels do not turn without assistance and therefore the child and parent becomes very frustrated very quickly because it does not move around as it should.

    1-0 out of 5 stars Step II replacement tires
    A favorite of preschoolers, but the wheels bust long before the body shows any signs of wear. We have bought Step II and Little Tykes Riding Toys-- the only difference, the Step II company is much kinder and much more helpful in sending replacement wheels. Wheels should be included with all of these toys, optional for an additional cost, of course.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Great Toy
    I didn't buy this toy new, but it's still in perfect condition. The previous owners kept it outside, so there was some faiding and it was dirty. I gave it a good washing and now my cousin's little guys (two and five years old) just love it. Extreamly adorable. We got a Fireman's hat and the to little guys take turns wearing the hat and driving while the other rides in the back. I love Step 2 toys. Very durable. For the two year old's birthday I got him a Step 2 motercysle. Him and his brother just love it, although they fight over who's going to use it... My cousin said at nights she has to put it on a high shelf in the gurage, or the boys will get up and play with it.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Firetruck Happy
    Bought this for my 16mth old son, He absolutely loves it. Have not had any trouble with it. The only negative things I can say is the sticker for the pretend redlights on top keeps peeling off ( the cop car had real red/blue lights on top) And the second thing is it has no doors so be careful when turning they can and WILL fall out and hit their head on the driveway!Got back up and ready to go again. But he just loves it, The price was reasonable, shipping was high, But it was a good investment, we keep it in the garage out of the weather, so it has held together great. So overall I highly recommend this to anyone who wants a ride on Firetruck for their kids, Oh the back seat is great too, he rides in both places. They never get tired of being pushed so be ready for lots of pushing/pulling fun. Works great on concrete,grass,asphalt... Assembly was Very Easy.

    5-0 out of 5 stars to difficult to use
    We purchased this for our daughter who saw one in a store that we could not get her out of it. Of course then when we bought it and got it home, the wheels do not turn easily! Even with us having to push her around constantly in it, we have to keep bending over to straighten the wheels.A real waste of money. And very frustrating for her and us! ... Read more

    Editorial Review

    This 8.5-by-12-inch natural wood puzzle has a laminated pictureof a fully rigged fire truck, along with a faithful dalmatian, waitingfor the next alarm. There are nine large puzzle pieces in this set, eachwith an attached red peg to make it easier for little hands to lift thepieces out of the frame. The same picture that is on the pieces isillustrated on the board, making it easy for little ones to match pieceswhen reassembling the puzzle. The puzzle pieces can also be reassembledoutside the frame. --Marcie Bovetz ... Read more

    Survived Destruct-o boy!
    Soon after my sons 2nd birthday, I searched for puzzles that would challenge him more than the 1-piece, 1-hole type. What I found was stimulating for my little guy, and it gave us countless hours of one of one time together. The "Fire Truck Peg Puzzle" is different from other peg puzzles that have one piece per opening. This puzzle has one large opening, and no separations. The puzzle encourages young children to think, yet at the same time have fun, because it includes the same picture beneath the pieces. It requires more concentration than the stage-1 type of puzzle, and it was exactly what William needed.

    I found this age group learns, and retain more information from realistic pictures, or photographs of everyday things, rather than animated illustrations. The manufacturer of this toy understands that, and although the Fire Truck is a rendered drawing, it closely resembles its real-life counterpart. The puzzle is designed well. By that, I mean the division of the pieces is perfectly presented. In addition, each piece includes a red peg so the puzzle is easy to work.

    William has enjoyed this puzzle from the time I eyed it in the store. In fact, he's not ready to give it up, and why should he. He turns 3 next month, so he's had 8 good months with the "Fire Truck Peg Puzzle" and will probably continue to "work it" a while longer. It's held up well considering my sons destruct-o moods, and will probably carry on for the next generation's play and abuse. 2-years and up.

    Happy Playing,

    Mary

    great puzzle for toddlers
    This is a great little puzzle for the truck loving toddler set. This was my daughter's first puzzle that involved pieces that can move around (i.e. that don't fit into a single slot). It only has 9 pieces and 7 of them are edge pieces so it is perfect for a kid figuring out the rules of this kind of puzzle. The picture underneath helps so it is challenging but not frustrating for a kid who already can do the slot puzzles. My daughter used it as a springboard and within a month of getting this had moved on to the the 23 piece Jumbo Firetruck Puzzle. Because of this, I think it is pretty clear that the recommended age range (2-5) is wrong. She got it when she was 19 months old, did it a lot for a month, then enjoyed doing it occasionally for a couple more months. At 23 months she has grown out of it. Even taking into account differences between kids, the upper age limit for this puzzle is probably 3.

    Great puzzle!
    A definite must for the firetruck lover in your family. This keeps my toddler busy for quite awhile and he even talks to it! Very, very cute and durable too - it takes quite a slamming and hasn't even chipped.

    Great puzzle!
    This is a great puzzle for the little fireman in your life. It is very durable and quite fun for my little one - he grabbed it off the shelf in the store so obviously, I had to get it. Don't pass this one by - it definitely is well worth the money.

    great puzzle
    This puzzle is my son's favorite. A great gift for a boy who enjoys puzzles and fire trucks. ... Read more

    Fun and Durable
    These are just great. Four 12-piece puzzles made out of very durable materials (see Pros below). The sturdy wooden box has four compartments under a sliding lid. Each of the four puzzles are theme related. These four are Fire Truck, School Bus, Steam Engine, and Jet Airplane.

    Pros:
    Easy but not too-easy puzzles.
    Pieces fit well together.
    Nice pictures.
    Sturdy container.
    Each puzzle has a different shape printed on the back to make sorting the puzzles easier.
    Super durable. I did not realize just how durable they were until I found a piece in my dishwasher. Even after being washed the picture was fine and the wood in perfect condition.

    Cons:
    It may take a few moments to figure out how to fit an entire puzzle's pieces in a single compartment.
    Lid does not lock closed.

    My kids love these and you will too.

    falls apart, and difficult to fit all the pieces in the box
    My 2.5 year old son received this toy for christmas. Not even two weeks later, we have already had to fix four of the puzzle pieces. The pictures are coming off the "wood". The wood is more like layers of wood (reminds me somewhat of cardboard), which is probably why they are falling apart so easily. As another reviewer mentioned, it can be difficult to get the pieces apart after the puzzle has been put together, which also can be contributing to the layers of the pieces coming off. Also, it can be difficult to slide the cover back on, unless all of the pieces are laying a certain way in the box. This can be time comsuming for an adult to do, and nearly impossible for a two year with no patience. Overall, I like the theory of the product, but I doubt that it will last much longer unless we stand by with a bottle of glue at all times. I am most upset about the poor quality of the product since I gave several of these as gifts over the holidays. It is embarrassing to give a child a gift that turns out to be junk.

    What a great deal!!
    My one dissapointment is that the puzzles are much smaller than they appeared to be in the picuture when I bought this product.

    My two-year-old doesn't seem to mind though.

    Otherwise, this is a great deal. This is the next logical step for the 2-to-3 year-old who likes peg puzzles, especially the ones where there is a single image divided up into pieces, and especially if you've got a little guy who lives for fire trucks, school buses, airplanes, and choo-choo trains!

    I love Melissa and Doug!
    Their puzzles are well-made and hold up to my little 3-year-old puzzle fanatic. My ONLY criticism of this set is that the box is completely unreasonable for a child of 3 or 4. (The lid is hard to open and the compartments in the box are only barely adequate. As a grownup I got frustrated trying to fit them back into the box! A child needs to be able to chuck it in and put it away without a lot of assistance or all the need for meticulous fiddling.)

    In general I love their puzzles and toys, but this is the second time when a box has only barely fit its contents without any additional space.

    SO great, especially for the price!
    My son is 2-1/2. He loves this puzzle set. It's 4 puzzles in 1 for just $9.99. What a deal!! He loves playing with them because of the fun pictures. They're totally durable. And best of all, they're totally educational. He can build most of them on his own and can sort them (using the shapes on the backs of the pieces) and put them away when he's done. Much more fun than a regular wooden puzzle. And a little more advanced for the kiddo who's inbetween wooden puzzles and cardboard puzzles. ... Read more
