PRODUCT: Matchbox Big Boots Blaze Brigade Fire Truck (www.matchbox.com )Matchbox Big Boots Blaze Brigade fire truck

DESCRIPTION: A large red free-wheel fire engine from the 'Big Boots' range, with multiple catapulting launch points, opening truck front, flip-up ladder and water blaster with water projectile. Includes 3 x Big Boots figures and fire-fighting accessories. Dimensions are approximately 13" x 7" x 7". Suitable for children aged 3 years upwards.

GOOD POINTS: This Blaze Brigade fire truck is a fun rugged vehicle that comes with all the features a boy could want - mobility, projectiles, movable parts, and not one but three hilarious little action figures! 

The truck is a great chunky size for young children to manage, and its four rolling wheels make it easy for small hands to push along.

The vehicle is made from a durable plastic, and has a superb design to give it a really authentic appearance, for example the extensive embossed detailing in the body work and the wonderful attention to detail in the lights, large tread tyres, bumpers, fenders and large front grill to name just a few. 

As its name implies, the truck is just one in a range of Big Boots vehicles from Matchbox, and as such comes with a generous number of Big Boots figures - fun detailed little characters (each one different) with oversized weighted feet which mean they will always land on their feet. Each of the characters in this set carries their own little fire-fighting related tools, and when not in use these tools simply clip onto the side of the vehicle.

Matchbox Big Boots Blaze Brigade Fire TruckThere are many great features to this toy, and refreshingly, not one of them includes bright flashing lights or noisy sirens - in fact, the truck is completely battery-free!

Firstly, there are numerous foot wells around the top and sides of the truck to accommodate the Big Boots figures, as well as inside the driver's cab which can be fully accessed by flipping down the whole of the front end of the truck - note that the truck can hold a maximum of twelve Big Boots figures.

In addition, there are three different launching platforms on the vehicle, from which your child can keep themselves fully amused by catapulting the figures off the truck and into fire-fighting action! These include the roof ladder, which can be flipped up by pressing down on the middle side panel; the rear panels on each side of the truck, operated by pulling out the back bumper; and the main seat bay, which springs the figures out of the front of the truck when the back bumper is pushed back in!

Another great feature of the toy is its 'water blaster', or rather a plastic hose on the top of the truck that has a push-down button which shoots 'water' out in the form of a plastic blue projectile!

In our opinion, the Blaze Brigade Fire Truck is a reasonably-priced and really action-packed little truck, which offers plenty of catapulting fun and a range of very collectible little figures that will appeal to a wide age range.

BAD POINTS: None, other than the sticker detailing may fade or rub off over time.
