|Description: For nearly two decades, the Little People line had always had one fire truck or another, but they never had a firestation....until the #928 came along. The accessories were mainly exclusives with few variations existing among them. To make up for the lack of variations, the Fire Station is filled almost entirely of easily lost, hard-to-find pieces, much like the #945 Offshore Cargo Base and Lift & Load sets were. The firehoses are probably the rarest of the bunch with the fire truck stabilizers in close running. The stabilizers were also sold with the #346 Fire Engine Rig, which stayed in production until 1990. Nevertheless, the stabilizers are such oddly-shaped pieces that most children never found a use for them and soon threw them into the trash. Lucky is the collector who manages to get both the fire hoses, both the ladder pieces, both the stabilizers, and all of the other hard-to-find piece that it takes to complete this short-lived set.
