The driving takes a little practice, because youngsters have to steer with the computer's mouse. In addition to the missions, kids can plan and execute a spectacular virtual fireworks show. The software also offers lots of printables. There are coloring pages and safety signs, including the "Stop, Drop, and Roll" reminder.

While this software is not highly educational, it's great fun. It's perfect for kids who are mesmerized by fire trucks. What's not to like about becoming a hero while driving four fire rescue vehicles and tooting their horns?

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
