What It Is
What It Is
For 50 years, children have grown up with Richard Scarry's bestselling books. Now kids can interact with the characters of Busytown through the Busytown Play System, which includes figures, roadways, and playsets that all fit together to recreate the Busytown world.
The Town Fire Station is an 11-piece playset that comes with a fire station, eight pieces of track, Fireman Pig, and a fire truck. The fire station has a button that launches the fire truck out and onto the track. There are also flip-out roof panels on the fire station. The track pieces in the Town Fire Station playset are compatible with most other wooden track systems.
All of the pieces are well-designed, and it's impressive how well the toys capture the look and feel of the classic illustrations.
Why It’s Fun
This playset offers simple track and vehicle play with characters and stories that kids already love. Whether recreating stories from the book or creating new adventures for the characters, the Town Fire Station playset will inspire lots of imaginative, open-ended play.
Who It’s For
The Town Fire Station is for ages 3 and up. Fans of the books will get the most fun from this and will be delighted to see these favorite characters come off the page and be able to be played with.
Because many parents—and grandparents—know and love these characters as well, this can be a great opportunity for co-play.
What to Be Aware of
The Town Fire Station is available at Toys "R" Us stores nationwide and at ToysRUs.com and FAO.com.
The Bridge Direct is also producing other Busytown playsets, stuffed animals, vehicles, and figure packs.
