(More customer reviews)My 4 yr old son received this for Christmas 2009. He has the large beginners TRIO set. My son is ahead of most kids in in building/mechanical skills dept.My father in law is an engineer and always marvels at his abilities. That being said my son is a LEGO master. TRIO are nothing like LEGOS. I cannot stress that enough. They remind me of Kinex for younger kids. TRIO not only has small blocks that only snap one way (unlike legos where there are multiple ways to stick them together) they also have these rods that take alot of patience and strength to fit the blocks together. That is the whole selling point of TRIO. That you can build little bugs,fences, and ferris wheels that look a bit more realistic than Legos. And you can.
The TRIO Firefighter set is only an extension of that. It is not really a toy to play with on its own unless your child has and LOVES his TRIO beginner set. It is like when you get a special Lego set. you have to virtually use every piece in the box to make what it is your child is supposed to play with. Again if your child likes TRIO it is ok. I am just not very impressed with TRIO as a whole. My son gets more frustrated than not if he tries to play with them alone. He likes his dad to put things together. He will request "a garage" or something. With Legos he builds himself.Not a great toy to try out if your child has not played with TRIO at perhaps a friends house already.
