The Torch Fire Engine Revs Up the Holidays for Your Little One

by Guest Contributor


Recently my daughter was given the opportunity to review the Torch the Fire Engine from Worx Toys.  She loved playing with it!

Worx Toys was started by three fathers who had an idea for a revolutionary new type of toy that combines stimulating the natural sense of curiosity in children, focusing on ages 6 to 9, with discovering how things work and learning in a fun way.

My daughter is all about learning how things work.  The truck comes with an interactive book,that tells you the story of the firetruck rushing to the scene of a forest fire.

While reading the book, you are able to press a sequence of codes of the storybook transmitter(you will need to sync the codes from the transmitter to the firetruck).

Also, while you are reading the book, the images shows you the inner workings of a firetruck.  It was really cool to see how in depth it goes.  My daughter was definitely fascinated! This toy is intended for ages 6+.
