Product Description

It's huge! The Super-Blast Fire Truck is the ultimate fire truck with lights, sounds and a water cannon that shoots real "water balls" to save the day! The package bottom has a building on it that your little fire fighter can use as a target for the water balls. Includes "To the Rescue" bonus video that features real-life fire engines and rescue equipment. 10Hx6Wx21L".

Almost 2 feet in length, this Super Blast Firetruck has working lights and sirens and shoots soft "water balls" high into the air (or at the cardboard targets you'll find on the bottom of the packaging). Made of heavy-duty red-and-gray plastic, this six-wheeler looks and feels quite impressive. Using one lever, the water cannon can be aimed at the back of the truck, and the balls are released with another lever. We were a little disappointed that the water cannon doesn't stay in an upright position on its own, as it is a bit cumbersome to hold onto for any length of time. But the lights and different sounds are pretty realistic and as fire trucks go, it's topnotch. It also comes with a 20-minute video of real firetrucks in action. Requires three AAA alkaline batteries (included). --M. Sullivan

My 4 yr. old son loves firetrucks and he really likes this Matchbox firetruck he got for his birthday. It's made of a really durable hard plastic, and it's about a foot and a half long so he can put all of his weight on it and drive it around the house. It has some really cool sound effects and blue lights. Aside from the sounds and lights, it also shoots little blue balls. Don't let the commercial on tv fool you, it takes some practice to shoot. Some side flappers pop out to put little feet on as an anchor, and there's a handle to hold the shooting barrel in position and another handle to pull to shoot. My son became frustrated until he got used to shooting it - it takes some coordination. Also frustrating is that the balls get hung-up sometimes in the barrel, and if your son or daughter is like mine, they try to shoot anyway and it makes an awful tearing sound - but it hasn't broken YET! All in all, it is a great truck. It looks great and is durable - and my son loves to shoot. But I'm wondering if the price isn't a litte steep for it's features?

This was one of my son's big requests for Christmas and he was just thrilled when he opened up this gift. It has sirens. lights and horn sounds. Water balls are placed into the special pocket, that are then able to be aimed at the box which depicts a burning building which has windows that can be slit to aim the water balls towards. It's great for eye/hand coordination while the child is having a great time at play. The construction is worthy of the name "Matchbox". The handle that is used on the one side makes a water blasting sound as the child shoots the fireballs to put the blazing fire out. The colors are very attractive and everything about this truck is exceptional. It has great detail on it and the lights go on as the child is operating the waterball feature. My son is very discriminating when he requests a particular toy and firetrucks are one of his specialties. He was familar with every detail of this firetruck as he demonstrated it to me Christmas morning. It would make a great gift for any occasion, or a super reward for a month's end for strides made academically or otherwise. It's a great incentive toy for children who love firetrucks.

i think this is a great toy for children. they enjoy firetrucks and love to be able to be part of the rescue mission. And it's nice that this one actually shoots some balls to put out fires in a house.

The truck is awesome, my 6 year old son love's it... The only draw back to the truck is that it come with 3 small blue balls to shoot like water. I dont know what you could do to replace the ball's if they get lost. My only suggestion would be buying ping-pong balls.
Matchbox should sell extra balls to purchase, otherwise this toy is great!!!!!
