It def. is a nice looking truck/great details, and I feel better buying well-made toys so I don't worry about toxic paint, etc. However, I did expect a little more from this company. It's plastic, no biggie, but thought it would be a higher quality/thicker plastic if that makes any sense.It's not flimsy, but its not Tonka truck quality either.It's nice and big, the ladder really reaches up a good 2 feet,a nd the working hose of course is fun for any kid!The lights and sounds are cool and not too loud which was good for the parents, the wheels are made of a light weight rubber. My neighbor bought another firetruck for my son from [tru] that is not as big, but almost equal in quality and functions (minus the rubber wheels), and only spent [$]! The only thing that I was really disappointed in, is that Bruder didn't make functioning doors!
