Firehouse Fun

Spark your child's creativity with this fun, eco-friendly firehouse. Made from sturdy double-walled corrugated board (45% post-consumer recycled materials), which makes it durable and 100% recyclable, the firehouse is great for individual or group play (especially birthday parties). Illustrated by a retired fireman/paramedic, the cardboard firehouse features realistic graphics that include fire safety messages. Easy to assemble, it comes with its own set of eight non-toxic washable watercolor paints and works equally well with other watercolors, markers or crayons. Made in the USA.

      My four year old grandson loved it. He began immediately to paint it so he could use it. Mom made a firepole to go with it, and grandson wanted "people" to put into it.

      Comments about COLOR YOUR OWN CARDBOARD FIREHOUSE:

      We bought this for my boys' 4th birthday party which was a fire truck theme. We put this out on a table so the kids could color it when/if they felt like it (and then my boys would have the fire station after the party). All the kids were drawn to this product. Only thing is I would have thought my boys would have wanted to play with it more after the party but so far not interested. Still worth the money for a good group project.

          Gave this to a 6-yr-old friend who likes to draw and color. Seemed intrigued, but he hasn't had a chance to put it together yet. More photos of the Firehouse painted in different ways would be good.

          Service and delivery comments:

          Arrived in what seemed like an excessive amount of packaging for an unbreakable item.

            Love this product - had something similar as a child. It allows for creative and imaginative play. I like that you can color it in, too. And it is easy to take apart, store, and use again.

              I purchased the firehouse and the cottage for a friends children (ages 3 and 4.5) and they were a hit. The kids wanted them put together immediately (very easy) and the next hour was spent with them sitting quietly at the table painting their new houses. Great gift!

                  I ordered the fire station for my nephew, but when it arrived, it was so underwhelming, that I debated sending it back. It is packaged in a black and white box that actually becomes part of the toy itself...nothing that would spark the interest of a 3-4 year old. When I showed my husband, he said "We're giving him a [$] cardboard box." After hearing that, I decided to keep it for my own son rather than giving it to my nephew. I do like the concept, but think the execution is lacking in this case.

                  I had not looked at the measurements online, but the picture made it seem bigger than it actually is.
