The World of Wheels Fire Truck is a basic truck that's about six-inches long and has lights and sounds. This truck also adds a feature that would seem perfect for a fire truck-the ability to squirt water. The problem is that feature doesn't work so well. We found it very messy and not easy to fill, and the water chamber is so small that it doesn't really squirt much. It takes many pumps on the button to get it to work at all-to say nothing of the fact that water squirting may make this an outdoor toy or certainly one to play with where a little spray of water won't be harmful.
This is a clever idea, but the design doesn't really make the most of it, and kids will probably get frustrated trying to make that feature work. It's still basic fire truck play with the lights and sounds, and it does that pretty well.
The World of Wheels Fire Truck is for ages 5 and up.
This truck includes three button cell batteries.
