Great for your child's development:
Playing with the Wooden Rescue Station is an exciting way for your child to enjoy 'small world' pretend play, which is a great way for children to learn about themselves and the real world around them. Imaginative play, such as setting up emergencies and rescues for the emergency crew, encourages your child to follow their own ideas, use creative thinking to invent their own stories, and build their communication skills by giving the crew voices and characters.

ELC star quality:
We love Wooden Rescue Station because it comes with everything your child needs for years of exciting rescue adventures. The three-storey police and fire station – with all the different rooms, the furniture, vehicles, staff and dogs – is a really fantastic package, which is ready for your child to bring to life. The good quality Wooden Rescue Station is designed to last for years of thrilling rescues for your child. So get ready to hear lots of siren sounds and screeching tyres.

What you need to know:

Pack contents: Materials to build the wooden rescue station, plus 24 accessories in total.

Other toys and accessories available separately.

Size: Height 70cm x Width 97cm x Depth 27cm.


Safety warnings: Not suitable for children under 36 months due to small parts.

Self-assembly: The Wooden Rescue Station comes flat-packed. It comes complete with assembly instructions. You will need a Philips screwdriver (not included) to build the Wooden Rescue station. Depending on experience, the Wooden Rescue Station might take two people approximately an hour to build.

Playing tips:

Rush to the rescue
Let's slide the firefighter down the pole, and dash the fire engine to the rescue. We can fly the helicopter and zoom the police bike to the scene.

Back at the station
Let's take the team back to base. We can help the firefighter enjoy a well-earned meal in the kitchen, or keep fit on the treadmill.

So many ideas
Let's help the rescue team play basketball, have a nap or fix their vehicles. We can invent new rescue adventures every time – with the dog too.

My only niggle about the Big city rescue station is putting it together
when you expect it to come out all in one piece. Was rather fiddly to put together on my own when i had a group of children waiting to play with it. Glad it wasnt Christmas morning. Saying that the children have had hours of fun with it.. As for value for money I think the £80.00 I paid for it was money well spent for the pleasure they have had frm it. Do not think I would pay £100.00 though.

I'd looked at this a few times but at £140 full price (it was more expensive last year for some reason), I ummed and ahhed. It was reduced to half price and then ELC decided to slash everything including sale items by 25%, a few days before xmas. We bought it on a whim as a last minute present and am so glad we did. My son was 21 mnths last xmas and loved this from the minute he opened it. I can honestly say it was the best £52 we spent.....We're now 9mnths down the track and he plays with it every day without fail. It closes up so if you're pushed for space, its not a big deal and it also hides away some of those millions of trucks and cars he has! Knowing what I know now, I would have happily parted with the £140 for it - would recommend without hesitation!

This fire house is a massive hit in my home. I wanted a toy that could possibly go down through the generations, just like my mothers dolls house had. I love that this is wooden and its so pretty.Its durable all though the helicopter has broken already from the wood splitting, but the rest of it is in tip top condition. At last there is a 'dolls house' for boys :)

I bought it for my son last Christmas and he still plays with it now all though he was 3 when i got it , i do think i should have bought it for him when he was a little older, when imagination play really comes along. This gift has the wow factor, and would make a lovely main present for your little ones. If i have 1 tip, that would be to ensemble it the night before, because i was rather perplexed while trying to cook xmas dinner at the same time. My bad. Anyway i recommend it for your little ones :)

bought for xmas, I am very pleased with the quality and durability of the structure and the accessories. Boys will have hours of fun.
The fire engine is quite heavy and well made also and the little figures are very bendy. Highly recomend.

This is a great item as an alternative for a dolls house for boys but its not made as well as it looks. The instructions are easy to follow and it is easy to put together ... providing that you get one where the base has been predrilled in the correct locations and they fit together! I'm glad we didnt pay the full price otherwise it would be going back! Once built it is a great toy and my 4 year old is enjoying playing with it. Also the little people are not wooden they are bendy plastic. overall a good item.

My 2.5 yr old son loves this product and I would definitely recommend it.

The only downfall is that the fireman & policeman are a bit too big and not bendy enough to easily go down the firemans pole.
