We are back with our next toy review as part of the Argos Chad Valley Play Panel. Leon was so lucky to receive this Fire & Police station and he absolutely loves it.
I’ve always been on the look out for a good play house for boys, as they love playing with them just as much as girls do, but most of them are very girlie.
This comes flat placked and is really great quality. This is what it looks like when it arrived. I obviously let the hubby build it (as I’m useless at anything that requires more than putting in batteries) It took him approx 30 mins
As you can see, Leon already started playing and making up scenarios before it was even built!
The set contains a fireman’s pole, fire engine, fireman, police car, policeman, 2 rescue dogs, a helicopter and furniture including a desk with computer and chair and a bed. It is 4 storeys high and is great for playing sitting down or standing up as it really is quite big.
The top of the house has a hellicopter pad which Leon was really impressed with.
I was trying to ask Leon some questions when he got it, but he really didn’t want to chat to me as he was so into his game. See video below 🙂
As with all Chad Valley Toys, they are so great for the imagination. Leon incorporated his own toys and teddys into the game and was so busy all day playing with it. I love the way its wooden and makes no sounds as it lets your child do their own sound effects and they are just the best!
We absolutely love the inside of the house and all the details in it. Leon loves the ‘puter’ (computer) as the policeman can go and do work like his mammy.
We are huge fans of this set I wish I had got it for him years ago! Leon had so much fun playing with it with his cousins over the holidays. Even though they are much older than him, they all were engrossed in play for hours. 10/10 from us!
