Fire Truck Toys for Kids

Updated on August 3, 2014

Great Inspiration for Kids

Fire Truck Toys for Kids are a great way to get them interested in community service as well as being a hero. The trucks listed here are all great products by great toy makers. Whether it's got interactive features, old style pedal mechanisms, or just fantastic red color, these toys will make some kid very happy for his or her birthday, Christmas or just a special occasion. Of course, there's also the "I wanted one of these to play with but I'm over 50 so I'll get one for my grandchild" reason too!

Best Rated Matchbox Smokey The Fire Truck - An all time favorite

This has got to be one of the cutest fire trucks out there...I know you don't buy fire trucks by "cute" factors, but still..that cheery red is just so darn cheeky and loveable! I'd pinch that firetruck cheek if I could.

Joining Rocky the Robot Truck and Stinky the Garbage Truck is Smokey The Fire Truck. Smokey is a freewheeling friend with movable hoses that spray water mist and expandable ladders and sensors that respond to a child's movements. Smokey is a real working fire truck brought to life. This interactive buddy talks, tells jokes, eats, exercises and sings. Kids will love interacting with their new friend.

What a Beauty! - A Pedal Truck

My brothers had one of these when we were kids. I snuck it out of the carport every chance I had. It was so fun to caroom around the neighborhood in this. Of course, ringing the bell was the most fun ever.

The Tonka Fire Truck features easy to operate hands-on controls - just like the real thing! Fully functioning ladder: rotate and extend for real rescue action. As always, built Tonka tough. Styled larger for more "hands on" control. Also includes a DVD of the real vehicles in action.

Teach Your Kids Fire Safety

Kids can get fascinated with lighting fires

My daughter went through a phase when she wanted to light fires out in the woods. Thank heavens some one was there to say it was a bad idea!

You can keep matches away from kids or you can teach them to be responsible with them.

For older children teach them where the fire extinguishers are, how to call 911, and what to do if the smoke alarms go off.

For younger children, show them a responsible way to use matches by having them light a fire. Make sure they know the rules such such as never lighting matches without an adult at hand.


Best Care for Burns

Firetrucks, fires, and burns. Ouch!

A bad burn needs hospital treatment.

A minor burn can be treated at home. Run cool water over the burn for 10-15 minutes to take the heat out of the burn. Use Lavender or Aloe to treat the burn. Don't cover the burn with a bandage but let it breathe.
