We bought this set for our 3-year-old for his birthday, as he really enjoys playing with Lego Duplo blocks which have previously been handed down to him from his older siblings. Also, having played the Lego Duplo game on the iPad he always wanted the Fire Station set as featured in the app.
The build is very simple and the instructions just as simple and clear to follow, though perhaps a bit challenging for a 3-year-old. Once built, it looks good and my child enjoyed playing with it immensely, He also combined his other Lego Duplo blocks to build additional features on top. The fire engine is built very well, its sturdy, solid plastic pieces fit tightly and also includes a siren with flashing lights and sound, and thankfully the sound is low, though perhaps a bit too low.
it comes with 2 firefighter figures and a dog, plus some additional unique pieces like a control panel block, a chair, a pizza, fire hydrant, fire hose, a ladder an axe 2 fire alarms and 2 soft plastic pieces for fire and water.
This is a good Lego Duplo set and kids will definitely enjoy playing, but I feel that there just isn't enough on offer here to justify the cost, other than the Lego branding. This would perhaps make for better purchase with an Amazon discount offer.
I've been really pleased with this for my 16-month-old, and would definitely recommend it for a child growing into Duplo. My son currently also loves Megablox, but they can come apart too easily when building towers, etc., which he finds frustrating (cue angry toddler face!); Duplo is quite reassuring for not doing that!
PROS: + Very versatile. My son is currently obsessed with the fire engine, and will no doubt grow into wanting to construct and play with the station. + Fire engine has a working siren and lights, and comes complete with the battery. + Sturdy, excellent quality. I cannot tell you how many times the fire engine has already been thrown across ceramic tile. Yes, it separates (part of the fun for my son!) but there's no damage at all. + Brightly coloured, lots of possibilities for imaginative play. + No parts are particularly small or present as choking hazards. I mention this in case you're thinking about age suitability. I got this for Christmas for my 16-month-old. I note he's slightly below the stated age limit of 2. He's a larger boy, doesn't chew / mouth much, and I have no concerns about any parts posing a risk to him. + The bricks are the perfect size for small hands.
CONS: - A little pricey. I got it on sale at £25.99, which I thought was a great price.
If you can get this for a good price, I'd wholeheartedly recommend this set!
Leider scheint Amazon das Produkt ja zu 90 % an Vinerezensenten zu verschenken. Ich musste leider bezahlen. Lego Duplo Feuerwache ist Weltklasse. In gewohnter Lego Qualität (wenn man die Teile nicht verschlampt können Kinder in 30 Jahren noch damit spielen) hat Lego ein paar nette Details beigefügt. So sind z.B. ein süßes Hündchen und ne Pizza dabei. Während man in der Feuerwache also auf den nächsten Einsatz wartet, kann die Mannschaft ne Pizza verdrücken. Ich find das witzig. Und unser Sohn war begeistert. Ich musste sogar 2 Wochen täglich mit ihm zu Amazon um Duplo tatütata zu gucken. Wahnsinnig finde ich die Variabilität. Kompatibel mit allen anderen Duplo Sets kann das Kind ganz viel umbauen, auch mal kaputt machen, kreativ sein, wieder aufbauen. Kein Vergleich zu langweiligem Holzspielzeug. Seit dem unser Sohn Duplo hat (Baustellenset und Feuerwehrstation) ist sein altes Holzspielzeug völlig abgeschrieben. Absolute Kaufempfehlung.
Love the duplo fire station which I bought for my 2 1/2 year old. She is a bit young to assemble the complete station herself but had fun playing with it when it was all set up. The fire engine lights make a sound and flash. The sound is quite mild and not annoying like some electronic toys.
