Lego City Fire Station - Reviewing Lego Set #7208

For new readers, I used to review Lego sets years ago and my favorite range was definitely the Lego City range.   I even had an alter ego called Leo who has made a surprise appearance on Review This Reviews while reviewing the Lego Creator Holiday Bakery set.

Now I know that all things fireman related are always popular with children and I can relate as when I was younger my dad was a fireman so I got to ride in a fire engine for real and even go down the fire pole (yes it is as fun as it looks!).   It's no surprise then that the Lego City Fire Station would be a popular set.   Why don't we review it now?

Lego City would not be complete without a fire station and they have a great one with Lego City Fire Station (7208)!

This Lego City set contains 662 pieces and once completed provides hours and hours of fun (much like the rest of the Lego City range).   The fire station is fully manned with a whole shift on duty at any given time - this means that you get not 1, but 5 firemen minifigures which is just fantastic in my opinion.

The set also includes a fire truck that has a ladder which actually rotates - just what you need to rescue people from the top of a burning building.   There is even a cat and a tree that it can fit in so that the fireman can 'rescue' it.

No expense has been spared by Lego City in making sure their fire fighters have everything they need including a second vehicle which is a much smaller one that's ideal for their rescue work.

There are lots of little inclusions in this set which are fun like a coffee machine, a television and a table with a computer.  I always think that it's often these little extras which are important when it comes to playing with the set after it's been built.

Now once you've got the Lego City Fire Station you can rest assure that the citizens of Lego City will all be safe, but I'm a great believer in that you can never be too careful so if you wanted to you could get more fire sets such as a fire fighting helicopter to keep any bush fires on the outskirts of the city under control!   If you want to check out all of the Lego City fire sets then you can find the best selecion at - Lego City Fire Sets.


A Couple of Warnings for This Lego City Fire Set

The first one is that once they have this fire set many children will then request one of the Police Station sets (unless they already have them that is)!  I mean do you know of any cities that have a fire station, but no police station?

The other thing to be aware of with this set is that once it's built it shouldn't be moved.   The downside is that it's not built on one of the larger base plates so when you try and move it you'll find it breaks and has to be rebuilt.   What this means is if you have room build it in situ so that your child can play with it where it is, if you don't have room then build it on a tray or something that it can be carried on.

Lego Sets Stimulate Children's Minds & Imaginations

Lego sets are great for children as the process of building the set stimulates their mind into figuring out how to build it whether your child chooses to follow the instructions or try and figure it out on their own.   Actually putting the set together is good for their fine motor skills which is invaluable.

Lego also helps a child to learn patience and perseverance as they have to take their time to build the set before they can play with it.

Once a set is built Lego keeps giving as now it's time to play and there's nothing like a Lego City set to stimulate a child's imagination and they can spend hours playing with them.

  1. Ah, my son's all time favorite toy, Lego sets! I love you suggestion of building the sets like this on trays. That makes cleaning the shelves under and around much easier too. We have a whole wall of shelves dedicated to awesome built Legos, plus a few free standing shelves for more. However, that is not enough. I've always been glad that our son enjoyed building these sets. They bring him so much joy, I really don't care how much display, or play, room is required. Bravo Legos!

  2. LEGOs have stood the test of time for a reason! The’re really addictive. It’s easy for kids (and even adults) to get lost in imaginative play for hours st a time as they invent and act out story after story. LEGOs have also kept up with the times, adding much more detail to the components and more types of components to the sets. This fire station sets looks like one of their better kits, too. I love that it includes 5 firefighter figures as well as extras like the coffee maker, TV and computer setup. Thanks also for the great tip about assembling it in situation or on a tray!

  3. The Lego City sets are really a lot of fun. I haven't seen the fire station set in person, but my grandson had the police station a few years ago and I had a ball watching (and occasionally helping) him build it. Quite elaborate with lots of detail and 'extras'. Legos are consistently one of the best toys ever invented. My kids had them; now my grandsons.

  4. Oh my grandson would love this set for sure. I will have to check with his parents to see if he already has it. Lego is a toy that is loved by all ages. My son helps his son build and then enjoys playing with the sets too! This is a great review Louanne. thanks.

  6. I can see why this Lego fire station set would be super popular. What a great way to teach fire safety, too, while playing with the children or grandchildren in your life.
