My son is obsessed with fire truck toys. They were his first real love. Now that he’s three-and-a-half, his affection for fire trucks and firefighters continues to evolve. When he was a baby, he was drawn to their lights and loud sounds. Now, he likes to pretend he’s a firefighter himself — on call for the next emergency.
