The toot too fire station is lovely, very noisy! But a great toy. You really need the vehicles, tracks and maybe the garage to compliment this, but it is a great add on to the other toot toot toys. You can wind the hose for great noises, and when any of the toot toot vehicles are pushed through the inside over the track it recognises it and says hello 'car' etc. Very clever. My son who is now nearly 18 months always enjoys playing with the toot toot set. The only thing I find is that he will not keep all the tracks connected and just destroys it, so even though it says 12-24 I think that an older toddler maybe up to 3 would get more from it when all set up.
