What is the Janod Story Box Fire Train?

It is a train set that fits on almost any brand of train tracks, such as Brio, Bigjigs, Tiny World and many more.

The fire brigade version of the train has 2 wooden firefighters. These are quite flat, a bit crazy to see but it actually plays very nice.

The dolls fit in one of the wagons, and there is another fire ladder and a tank wagon with pretend water.

What makes the Janod Story Box Fire Train fun?

Pretend play is of course great fun and what child doesn't like to put out a fire. There's bound to be an emergency somewhere along the train tracks!

Many train tracks also have those flat figures or trees, so these figures fit in well.

The magnets are strong enough so that the train does not just pop loose and it is very sturdy wood.

What makes it even more fun is that the ladder is also attached to the train set with a magnet. This way it stays in place but can also be caught when they are at the fire.

This train set from Janod is a bit in the middle segment. It's not the most expensive toys but there are also cheaper brands.

The style (really French!), colors and great construction make it a train set that you definitely want to add to the collection.
