Last year for Halloween, Ryan wanted nothing more than to be a firefighter. He talked about it for months. Being the extra mom I am I went all out. Owen was a fire dog, Ryan a firefighter complete with homemade fire truck boxtume! I was “a hot mess”, because, duh.

Well, that fire truck has sat in Ryan’s room for a year. Every morning Owen goes in, looks at it, and screams, FIRE TRUCK!
Suffice to say, I’ve bred an obsession.
Owen officially loves all things fire trucks and firefighters. In fact – this year he told me he wants to be a “fire truck” for Halloween. Not a fire fighter but the dang truck.
Because of his recent adoration, we’ve been looking for the best fire truck toys for kids. My focus is really on toys for toddlers. But, I always make sure the gifts I get the boys will grow with them. I find that toys that are strictly for toddlers don’t last long in my house. Either they fall apart or the kids get bored with them immediately.
That being said, I also need to find balance, since “big kid” toys can be super frustrating for little hands.
In case you’re in a similar position, I put together this list of the best toy fire trucks for toddlers. All of these toys are perfect for littles but also will have some staying power as they get older!

The Best Fire Trucks for Toddlers – the best fire truck toys for kids
My girlfriend bought this for Ryan’s second birthday and he still loves it. We keep it at my dad’s since it needs a lot of floor space. But, it does fold up small so it’s not a huge burden. Both Ryan and Owen love playing firefighter in it.
We’ve had this fire truck toy for 4 years AND it was a hand-me-down. It’s still in perfect condition. It’s pretty basic, but I love that this toy really encourages kids to use their imaginations. Made of eco-friendly materials and it’s super durable, it’s perfect for all ages. I would say it is probably my recommendation for “best fire truck toy”.
Halloween last year which left me with this costume. This set is awesome and for all ages – nothing super small to choke on. The fire extinguisher actually shoots real water if you want it to. Keep your toddler entertained for hours using his imagination! Bonus: it’s washable for when your kiddo inevitably decides he needs to eat/sleep/bathe in it. You’re welcome.
Chances are, you’re probably well versed in all things Paw Patrol and the fire pup, Marshall. If your firefighter lover is also “ready for the ruff ruff rescue!” then he will LOVE this ride on toy. It’s not super expensive, like other Paw Patrol toys, which is a huge bonus.
If you’re looking for fire trucks for toddlers on the younger side of 1, this is the best bet. Not only does it have lights and sounds – aka the mecca of all things toddler – but it’s soft and squishable! So when your kiddo inevitably slams it on his feet/hands/the dog, no lasting damage will be of issue.
Little People toys are always a win in the toddler crew. Look at any preschool or pediatrician’s office and you’ll probably find a huge stash of them. This toy is perfect for kid of all ages, and will definitely last a while. They’re super durable so it will stand the test of time.
This wooden ride on is super cute and looks really durable- so it will last a few kiddos. It is also a push toy, so your toddler can practice balance and walking! I love that it has a few other activities for littles to play, like holes and blocks for motor skills.
My boys love the VTech Go! Go! series of toys. I love them because they’re a perfect mix of little hand friendly, learning, and play all in one. This set teaches the letter ‘F’, and can connect with any other the other Go! Go! track sets so you could easily ask for a few different sets from family members. It’s rated from ages 1-5 and I can say my boys (2 and 4) both still fight over them.
Ryan would have LOVED this as a toddler. This fire truck toy for toddlers is full of fun buttons and levers. They’ll keep little minds busy to playing and learning with. It also comes with a tool (screwdriver/wrench combo) to play and ‘work’ with. The best part – this toy for kids can be played with in both English OR Spanish mode!
Get rid of the boring dog/cat/duck pull toys and trade it in for this super cute fire truck version. Complete with a string for little hands to pull along the house! It has fun little activities as well, to keep little interested, like a shape sorter on one side.
Okay so tell me – does your kid love fire trucks? Do you have someone in your life who would love these fire truck toys for kids? Let me know in the comments!
