The 3 in 1 Mega Bloks Fire Truck is a very good toy truck I have looked into and would recommend wholeheartedly for the following 6 reasons.
- It is a toy that has got 3 types of play bundled into one. It can function as a walker for very small kids as little as 12-months-old who are just learning to walk. Then as they grow up, this big fire truck can be used as a ride-on toy truck until they are as old as 5 or even more.
- Its got 11 safe and sturdy pieces of mega building blocks giving kids another kind of play activity.
- It is a well made, durable toy truck of sturdy plastic that won’t break. Once you buy one of this, I can see kids playing with it for many years to come.
- It is very large. It measures feet in leangth and more than 1 foot width and height. Exact dimensions of it is -14 x 12 x 24 inches in size and weighs 9.2 pounds.
- Parents and people who bought it are happy with this large, durable toy fire truck. Their general opinion is that kids love this big toy and they think its well worth the price paid. Most of them appreciate this 3 in 1 toy truck’s educational and fun value and its durability too.
- With all the above benefits it’s still reasonably priced. (For latest price you can check and order on Amazon.com)
Apart from the above mentioned advantages like you can see in the pictures here, this toy has got a large steering wheel and working fire truck lights. Its also got a fire-truck-like siren sound that creates an exciting ride. You can imagine how kids will be racing with it to the scene of a emergency!
The way this toy is made with so many play activities brought together is amazing. You make the toy truck transform into a push-behind walking aid for very young kids by tipping the bucket into a lifted position. For bigger kids, tipping the truck bucket will allow them to sit on its chassis body and use it like a ride-on toy vehicle. I’m sure all kids who owns one will find many more play activities to use it in addition to what we adults can think of like pushing and pulling or using it to drag things around and dump them just for fun.
All in all I think this 3-in-1 Ride-On Fire Truck from Mega Bloks is a excellent toy to buy for a toddlers and kids to develop strength, improve hand-eye coordination skills and create endless adventures.
Here are a few more specs from the manufacturers

If there is another toy truck in the American toy market today that I can think of which is similar to this one, it is the 3 in 1 CAT construction toy truck also made and sold by Mega Bloks. Its has more features than this toy fire truck but its about one and a half times the price of this one!
