You get what you pay for
I had a party for my three year old son at the fire house and I thought that it would be cute for the kids to have something to play with after they eat but a half an hour later some were broke. I don't know if it was the boys being to rough or these are just poorly made. My sons have other trucks and they didn't break this quickly. You have to be careful pulling the ladder off because the whole part will come off then you will just have a hole and the sirens also come off, but the idea was there.
