Outdoor Fun Event- Little Tikes Spray & Rescue Fire Truck

~~~THIS GIVEAWAY HAS ENDED~~~




About Little Tikes!
I know every parent has seen the Little Tikes logo on a million different toys when shopping for toys for their child(ren). Little Tikes manufactures a huge variety of childrens toys for all ages. I have found Little Tikes toys to be all constructed of high quality materials and are very reasonably priced.

Have you shopped their webpage recently? LittleTikes.com is really user friendly and makes it simple to find what exactly you are looking for. If you are not sure what kind of item you are looking for, you can shop by age, gender and price to get an idea of what is available in your preferences. Of course don't forget to check out their clearance and specials section where you can snatch up a great deal. If buying US made toys is your top priority, Little Tikes has a section of their toys categorized especially for that. Looking for several toys at the moment? Little Tikes has a Bundle Deals section where 2 or more items that are similar are grouped into a packaged deal where you can save lots of money. I have my eye on the Thomas & Friends™ Toddler Bed & Rocking Chair Bundle. Ethan has just discovered a love for Thomas (which sounds like "Tiny" when he says it!) plus he'll be needing a toddler bed soon!

Our Little Tikes Spray & Rescue Fire Truck Experience!
I was really excited when Little Tikes said they were going to send a Spray & Rescue Fire Truck for Ethan to review. What little boy would not like to play with a firetruck plus get wet doing so?

When we received the Spray & Rescue Fire Truck I let my husband put it together. I'm pretty sure I could assemble this by myself, it really seemed simple. However, you know how men are, you can't take away something that is meant for them to do ;-) It didn't take him too long to put the Spray & Rescue Fire Truck together. All of the parts are well constructed and fit together snugly. Ethan couldn't wait for him to finish so he could start playing with it.

After the Spray & Rescue Fire Truck was assembled, we took it outside to test. I filled up the green water tank for him. This tank holds 2 gallons of water! I was curious to see how long 2 gallons would last us. I had to help Ethan do the pumping to build up the pressure in the tank in order to spray the water. He could pump the tank himself for the water to squirt out of the hose, but to get a really good stream of water going it needed to be pumped pretty fast so I did it for him. That's ok, it gave me my workout for the day. I know Ethan won't have trouble pumping it himself at all within another year.

So, what can a toddler spray with his own water hose on the back of his super cool new fire truck?

The air.


The grass.

His face.

His tummy.

The flowers.

The sidewalk.

The firetruck.


Oh, and we can't forget the dogs!


After an hour of playing with the Spray & Rescue Fire Truck we only used 1/3 of the water in the tank! I couldn't believe it. Ethan absolutely loves his new toy. If you are looking for a new summer toy, you have to get the Spray & Rescue Fire Truck. It provides hours of cool summer fun!

BUY IT! You can purchase directly from Little Tikes.
