As I told you the other day, my two little boys are so typical boys, absolutely loving playing police and fire men, so needless to say that they are huge fans of the TV Show Fireman Sam. 

To celebrate that this year it's Fireman Sam's 30-year anniversary, a new range of toys have been released, which are all available through Australia Post.

The Firemen Sam program takes place in a fictitious rural village of Pontypandy in Wales, where it helps teach young children all about bravery, safety and the values of community spirit.

And it is not just fire emergencies that Fireman Sam comes to the rescue. He helps with all kinds of safety incidents in the town, from sea-borne or cliff-top disaster to barbecue fiascos. Fireman Sam can man the lifeboat and help with mountain rescues and even assist medical emergency team. Fireman Sam is always there, and he is such a true hero, it's no wonder he is loved by kids. 

First up is the Fireman Sam Backpack, which is such a great backpack for kids. It has heaps of pockets throughout, on the sides for i.e. a water bottle, and on the front for some toys or snacks. And it has the cutest Fireman Sam print. It also has adjustable straps, so it is suitable for kids in a range of sizes, and can of course be used for kinder or school. My boys are not quite that old yet, but they have been loving taking it with them when we go out, and they packing their toys to take with them. 

Then there's the Fireman Sam Helmet. This cool bright yellow fireman hat is sure to spark imaginative play. The helmet has a plastic visor and also comes with a microphone, for hours of endless fun. It can be adjusted internally to fit a different sizes, and also has a velcro strap to secure it on the head. 

Then there's the Fireman Sam Vehicles, which includes boat,ship, helicopter, car and firetruck, and my boys have been testing out the fire car and the fire truck. The push along fire car, also called Venus, has lots of features, including a rotatable water nozzle on the room, and doors of the car can be opened for extra fun. The push along Firetruck, also called Jupiter, comes with even more features. The doors can be opened, and it has an extendable rescue platform. And on each side of the car, other doors can be opened too, one revealing the rescue equipment, and the other side the fire hose, which can even be unwind and pulled out. My boys really love these car and trucks, and have spent hours and hours putting out the fire around the house!! The only thing that would have been a great addition, also considering the doors to the vehicles can be opened, would be some little firemen figurines (which are also pictured on the back of the packaging), but you must be able to purchase these separately, which we will definitely be looking into, as I know my boys would love this. 

However, all in all, these are really great toys, and I love watching them play with them after watching a Fireman Sam episode on TV, as it sparks their imagination further, and they clearly try to reenact what they've just watched.
