    Default Toy Firetrucks - Yellow

    On several attempts on several days, including on Santa's knee, my boy responds to what do you want Santa to bring you with " a yellow fire truck ". I'm a little distrubed that he likes YELLOW fire engines, but that's something I'll work on over time...

    So, I'm on a quest to find a 'yellow' fire truck toy / model for my 3 year old at home.

    I've tried on Code3.net and a few internet searches, but haven't found anything.

    Has anyone seen one in a store or online?

    Thanks for your help.

    Ebay is your friend, just search "yellow toy firetruck" you should find at least a dozen.

    Get him started off in the right direction. Buy him a RED truck and tell him that bananas don't make good fire trucks!! They are just for eating.

    Try code 3 collectibles again. I know they sold a Limited Edition of a Syracuse FD Sutphen Truck which was yellow. Not many were made, so it may be a hard find. Good luck.

    Nice.

    I've got an Oshkosh ARFF coming, and I've got an eye on a couple of others This one included.

    I'll get him a red one too... as a positive influence.

    Why would you want to ruin a good red paint job by covering it with that yellow stuff???

    May just need to add some white or black to the cab to make it look real

    Default These replies are a hoot!

    Maybe I'm a traditionalist at heart, but TOY FIRETRUCKS SHOULD ALL BE RED!

    Whe the sun comes out, leave them on the ramp so they can ripen up some.
