Rescue Heroes: Reviews of Action Figures

To be a successful Rescue Hero, you gotta get there fast! These action figures absolutely get there the fastest with the "mostest." Team these action figures up with different Rescue Hero playsets for a gift your child will treasure.

There is a reason for these big feet--they add stability and make the figures stand up.

What do with all those extra Billy Blazes figures? Well, one at Grandma's, one at the babysitters, and one makes a nice present for the kid down the street. Or maybe just have a whole firefighting team...

Al Pine with Arctic Tracker and his dog sled team, Snow and Winter, cover many miles of snowy mountains to track down snowbound skiers or climbers. While Al's amazing Arctic Tracker starts out as a state-of-the-art dog sled, it easily converts to two vehicles: a snowmobile and rescue sled! So the dogs can transport victims to safety on the rescue sled while Al rides along on the snowmobile.

This one is best for older children as it is somewhat fragile.
