    Question Old Fire Helmet Toy

    Does anybody remember an old toy they used to sell at Radio Shack that was a fire helmet with a siren and a red light? If so does anybody still make and sell them. Need one for a gag gift.

    There was an old toy fire helmet at our department, no light or siren, and someone asked me if I needed a helmet and I did and they put it on my head...

    Yes, I remember them. In fact I have one that is a collectable and is in excellent shape. Sorry it isn't for sale.

    You may try E-Bay or look around at yard sales.

    My brother used to have one of them, but white, back in the olden days. Not sure what happened to it. Can't seem to find a picture of it on the comp so I will try to scan one some time.

    By they way, this is my 900th post.

    BEST GAG GIFT EVER!

    and the reason he put random words in was because you cant post an image from your computer without having some text. Dont know why though.

    Next time someone ruins their helmet or melts something on it, i will be shopping around for one of these for them.

    For all the life of me, i cant see a firefighter going to hell. At least not for very long. We would end up putting out all the fires and annoying the devil too much.

    We had one that was used for rookie initiations. When it broke about 3 years ago, we spent months exhaustively looking for one in stores and on-line. The closest thing we could find was at Toys'R'Us, but it wasn't a revolving light, just a little flashing bulb on the front sheild. The siren was not very loud either.

    E-bay is gonna be your best bet.
