EDITOR'S REVIEW
OVERALL EDITOR'S RATING:
What It Is

The Rescue Heroes are back, and they're saving the day on-screen in a YouTube Kids series and off-screen in your living room with the Rescue Heroes Transforming Fire Truck. It goes from compact truck to a large fire-fighting machine that stands more than two feet tall. 

As a fire truck, it's got a spinning fire ladder that can be raised for rescue action. The ladder also has an opening and closing rescue clamp. Press the button on top for lights and sounds. Pull back on the hose lever to launch the four water projectile discs.

When you need more fire-fighting power, press the button behind the hose and pull up to transform the vehicle into the fire-fighting machine. You get all the same fun features of the fire truck but at a larger size to reach even the highest disaster - and allow preschoolers to stand up and play. To transform back to fire truck mode, just squeeze the button and the vehicle slowly falls back on its own into a fire truck.

This is compatible with Rescue Heroes action figures, but none are included. There is space on the back of the vehicle for storing figure backpacks. 

Is It Fun?

For kids who enjoy watching Rescue Heroes online, this fire truck will bring the action and excitement of the series to life and allow kids to recreate their favorite rescue moments. You'll have to purchase action figures separately, which is a bit of a bummer, but we're sure Rescue Heroes fans might already own some, and they'll be happy to add those figures to their imaginative play with this vehicle.

Who It’s For

The Rescue Heroes Transforming Fire Truck is for ages 3 and up. Kids who are fans of the YouTube Kids series will like playing out the adventures from the show with this vehicle.

What To Be Aware Of
