Of course its quality, it's LEGO. My son is into fire engines and LEGO so of course he's in love with this product. We have hours of fun putting out the fire, building the fire truck and taking it apart.

This set is right in that fun/play sweet spot for LEGOs. The price is right (we got it for fifteenbucks at a major retailer rhyming with bar-jet) for Christmas or birthdays, but there is a ton of play value.
Easy to build, fun to play with. The price is right.
Just one minifig, but a rotating hose and lots of cubbies/compartments in the fire trucks. Tools. Kids love LEGO tools.
This set is just about perfect for the price.

My son (3 years old) LOVES all things fire truck, so this was a no-brainer. We got it at just under $20 at Target.
Fully assembled, the fire truck is a little smaller than a 16 oz coffee cup. For some reason, I was expecting it to be larger - but we have other trucks from Lego sets that are the same size or bigger.
It was not hard for me to assemble, but a three year old would have found it impossible - the box identifies the set is for older children - and I fully expected to build it for him.
I think the tree with the "fire" is a nice idea, but looks kind of strange and my son doesn't really use it to play with the truck - he prefers to relocate the fire to other vehicles so he can "save" them.
There are lots of small pieces - like the oxygen tanks - so if you have younger kids around you may want to make those disappear. I will say, I am disappointed that these Lego sets all use stickers - instead of plastic pieces molded with the fire or police emblems. Eventually the stickers peel and if you wash Legos as often as we do - the sticker rubs away.

It is difficult to single out one LEGO set from the rest because the manufactured quality, effort, imagination and creativity are recognized in every single set, with no difference. In my opinion you cannot make a mistake, whichever you choose. I started bying LEGO sets long time ago and still, after all these years, I see that they preserved all the trademarks of their products and plus added some improvements over time. A job well done!
