I ordered this toy at about 2pm and it arrived the next morning! - Very impressed!!! He had it in time for his birthday.
My 2 year old son had played with one of these ambulances and the fire engine at his play group so we knew he liked them.
The ambulance comes with a stretcher with a patient with a leg in plaster, a wheelchair with a lady in it and one "Paramedic" type figure. The side door opens with a rachet sound, the tail ramp opens when you push the fuel cap in and the wheelchair comes out with assistance of a raising ramp when you push another button. Inside the ambulance, there is plenty of detail with medical equiptment (on stickers) and an X-Ray machine that shows the mans broken leg! All in all, alot of thought has gone into this toy, the propultion mechanism can be abit loud - but that adds to the appeal for the kids! It doesn't go very fast or for very far but thats not a problem for us. I thought this might help to explain what Mummy and Daddy do at work!
Since buying this, I've also got the fire engine and Grandparents bought him the motorbike and sidecar and two racing cars and he loves all of them. The latter sets are faster especially on smooth surfaces. All of the caracters are interchangable between toys so the imagination is encoraged. Lastly, no batteries needed in any of them!
Hope this helps, K's dad (Ambulance Service)
