Fire Truck Pull Toy
What It Is

The Fire Truck Pull Toy from the Manhattan Toy Company is a wooden fire truck that functions as both a pull toy, and an activity center. Measuring 10 x 6 x 8 inches, the fire truck-shaped toy features rubber trimmed wheels, and a yellow cord to pull the truck along. It also has hands on activities for toddlers to explore. There’s a shape sorter with three wooden blocks - a circle, square, and triangle - for little ones to try to fit in the corresponding holes. There’s also a bead run, and two spinners with a firefighter on one side, and a dalmatian on the other. The wood is treated with non-toxic water based finishes. Recommended for 1 year olds and older, this is a well made toy with activities that may help toddlers develop motor skills, learn shapes, and work on problem solving.
