Fire engine toys for budding firefighters

What do you want to be when you grow up? We've been asking parents what their children are answering to this question and we've had a massive response. In our survey more than 50% of little boys said they want to be a fireman, policeman or ambulance driver. Other popular choices were lorry drivers, farmers and astronauts!

For all the budding firemen out there we have got some fantastic new fire engine toys in the shop. For tiny hands we have a range of mini vehicles from green toy company Plan Toys. The chunky wooden fire engine is one of our favourites, and our young toy testers have been putting them through their paces this week. The Plan Toys mini fire engine has a rotating fire ladder; twist it around and it makes a clicking sound. The fire hose also spins around and there is a jingly bell to let people know you are on your way to another emergency call! Aside from looking good, these toys are very sturdily built - our testers have been whizzing them around this week and even after one took a detour down an entire flight of stairs it was good as new!

The I'm Toy Walker Wagon Fire Engine is the most beautiful baby walker we have seen in a while. Made to look like a fire engine, even the handle has been designed to look like a ladder. This clever design feature makes it easy for babies to pull themselves up rung by rung. The fire engine also doubles up as a toy box, which should encourage small children to tidy up at the end of the day.

For a fire engine themed toy that will keep your childs attention at different stages in their development, then the I'm Toy Fire Engine Work Bench is just perfect. This fantastic toy is a wooden pull along fire engine that becomes a shape sorter. And as if that wasn't enough, older children will have great fun using the wooden tools and accessories to build the fire engine ladder on the construction work bench.
