Hi I am looking for a fire engine for DS's 2nd birthday. 


Something lovely. I have been looking at the Fargus trucks but are they great quality? Or which other ones would you recommend? I am after a larger one.

Any other ideas for a second birthday?

We have so far: some dress up capes, a hobby horse, some felt tools, some crayons, books, a wooden bus.

I found this wooden firetruck at:




They also had many boats and other wooden cars that looked as though they were high quality.

On this page: http://www.rosiehippo.com/c-18-Cars_and_Trucks.aspx, you can see a firetruck.  We bought the dump truck for ds for Christmas and I think the quality is great.  You can see Fagus trucks on the same page.  It does have a laquered finish, which I was a bit surprised by (although I shouldn't have been as the description says it has a non-toxic finish; guess who didn't read!), but it is very sturdy and quite nice.  It's solid oak.  And Rosie Hippo occasionally has coupon codes, so, you should be able to get it at a decent price.

Mama to add 10/05; ds 3/09, and two angels
