Brought this for my sons birthday and he loves it, even though I personally am not impressed considering the price i paid, the stickers are not aligned properly in places, and the fact it has B&M Retail stamped on the underside of the engine itself makes me feel a little conned, but as said, my son loves it and takes it everywhere with him
My son received this as a gift for his 3rd birthday. He and his little brother (almost 2) play with it almost constantly. The ladder was lost within minutes of course and the front bumper has broken off due to a few crashes, but other than that it's held up really well. It does receive a lot of punishment. My 3year old is now a huge Fireman Sam fan and watches/wants to watch the DVD's endlessly. I would recommend this to anyone whose kids have an interest in firemen.
Good quality fire engine my 'typically rough' 2 year old fireman Sam fan loves it and it has stayed intact despite being crashed about regularly . Only criticism is the figures are slightly too big and can be a struggle to fit into the seats.
