|The Imaginext Rescue City Center !|
The last 2.5 years of my son's life have been spent with one favourite past time: playing cars with me! Why he thinks that his mom is more fun to play with than his 3 brothers or 1 sister, I'll never know. But we play cars together and do so daily. Two scenarios that my 4-year old son loves to play out include: cars running out of gas and needing help getting refueled, or cars having "broken" tires and needing help from a tow truck. My son is also fanatical that we know all the "names" of his cars, and we refer to each by his or her name!
My boys were elated when the Imaginext Rescue City Center arrived at our house! It's a playset with a firetruck, 2 action figures, and lots of accessories for the town and the rescue guys. The Center features flashing lights, siren sounds, and recorded fire fighter and police dispatcher phrases! The boys were very impressed, and I'm sad to say that there were tears and a "biting" incident over it--but everyone's okay! We played with it for HOURS after it arrived, and then for HOURS the next morning. My 4-year old was crazy about rushing over with the fire engine to put out the "fire" in the hotel!
