The rescue vehicles that fascinate young children so much are now their new remote controlled play friends. The vehicles come with a built-in rechargeable battery and a recharger base, an easy grasp steering wheel with two buttons, one to move forward and one to turn the vehicle and change directions. With realistic sound effects, the vehicle engine will roar as it travels forward. It also makes a fun noise when it changes direction. The vehicle runs on a built-in rechargable NiMH battery pack and the infrared steering wheel runs on 4 AA alkaline batteries (not included). When the battery is recharging, a green indicator light will come on and the vehicle will toot its horn. When the vehicle is fully charged, a hooting sound will be heard and the green light will go off.
