Toy Fire Stations
Choosing toy fire stations
My son absolutely loves fire engine toys and toy fire stations. This article gives lots of ideas and suggestions on different toy fire stations for boys and girls. There are toy fire stations for different age groups and fire stations of different types. I have described each different fire station toy and given age recommendations for each one.
There are lego fire stations which children will have fun constructing and playing with after. Fisher Price make trio fire stations which can be built up and played with too. There good range of toy fire stations which cater for different age groups including ones for toddlers and there are wooden fire stations too.
Read on for more information on the best toy fire stations.
Lego Fire Stations
I love lego. It provides two points of play. Firstly, kids can build and construct their own toy fire station. Then they will have great fun playing with their new toy.
My own son builds a station for his fire engine out of his legos but you can get specific fire station lego sets such as the two featured below.
The other lego fire station is for children from ages 5 and up. 5 year olds will probably need a little help constructing it but its a good project for children and family members to work on together and they will have great fun playing with this toy fire engine after it's been constructed. It will be a good project for older children to work on, improving motor skills, concentration skills and giving a sense of achievement once completed.
Lego duplo fire stations are great for 2 to 5 year olds. Lego duplo have larger bricks so using the bricks and people are easier for little fingers. Lego duplo is great for honing fine motor skills too.
Fire Stations for Toddlers
Looking for fire stations for toddlers?
When buying for toddlers, make sure the any fire trucks, figures or blocks are chunky so they're easy for little hands to grasp. My younger son is just at the age of liking these kinds of playsets. He has a toddler sized fire engine which he loves to move about. Any lights and sounds from playsets really attract his attention too.
I would recommended checking out the lego duplo option (which is first in this list) if you're looking for a fire station for a 2 year old.
If that's not what you're look for, check out the ones below.
Recommended for 18 months plus.It features flip doors which spin into fire or waterEasy to grasp vehicles speed down 4 big spiral rampsA built-in elevator transports vehicles to the top level of the buildingMolded-in garage doubles as storage space for the fire truck
The Fire Station bucket comes with all of the pieces necessary for your little firefighter to build his very own Fire Station, complete with station doors that really open and have building prongs to build on or around. The bucket top is also pronged and can be used as the bottom or as a part of any build. Clean-up is a snap with the bucket holding all of the Fire Station blocks neatly and securely in place. Ideal for children ages 1 and up.
Fisher price Trio Fire Stations.
Fisher price trio sets are great for boys and girls around the ages of three or four plus. Kids can build their own fire station with these sets. The bricks click and stay together for imaginative play once they're built. .
This set features 91 pieces. There's a fire fighter figure which snaps on to the bricks and slides down the pole. The figure can "drive" the fire truck that kids build themselves.
A bigger fire station from trio.The TRIO Lights and Sounds Fire Station Building Set by Fisher-Price provides more easy ways for kids to build their creativity with bricks, sticks and panels. The set features Lights & Sounds: the fire station has two buttons that each initiate a variety of different sirens and bell SFX as well as two LED lights. Press the button on top of the fire truck and watch the lights flash and hear the sirens sound! The set includes bricks and sticks; card, window and brick panels; a fire truck cab, chassis and body; bell, ladder, fire station door and fireman figure.
