Character Options new Fireman Sam playsets are designed to help recreate the village of Pontypandy. Collect each playset to assemble the entire village.

The site is updated regularly so bookmark us and keep checking back to find out about all the latest new toys.
Each playset has a flip down fire-effect feature, giving Sam plenty to do. The playsets are scaled to the vehicles and all include very cool accessories and a figure. The figures included are usually exclusive to that playset, at least for the first several months following its release. Meaning if you want all the figures, you may need to get some of the playsets too.
The Fireman Sam Fire Station playset includes a figure of Elvis and a fireman’s pole. The Fire Station has ample space to park the Jupiter Fire Engine (not included).
The Fireman Sam Supermarket set features ‘naughty’ Norman Price with a shopping trolley accessory. The inside of the supermarket has a shopping counter and till; the outside has the fire-flip feature.
The Mountain Lodge Fireman Sam playset comes with a Tom Thomas figure, a stretcher and winch to go with the Rescue Helicopter (not included), and features stairs to a balcony above the Lodge.
The Character Options range of Fireman Sam playsets have better detailing, superior paint application, and more advanced sound and light effects than the earlier playsets by Born to Play.
However, the Character playsets are made in a slightly smaller scale. For this reason alone, younger Fireman Sam fans may prefer the chunkier Born to Play playsets which you can still find on, for example, ebay without any problem. Check out our vintage toy section for more information on the larger scale Fireman Sam Rescue Playset by Born to Play.
