Here is the Fabuland Fire Station from my Fabuland collection. I bought this in 1987 and it was the largest Fabuland set that I owned at the time. Luckily, I took excellent care of all my Fabuland sets and now I am able to share them with you. I hope that you enjoy my review!

Set Nr: 3682

Released: 1987

Pieces: 149

Figures: 3

I really love this set and it brings back found memories of my childhood so this set will always be special for me.

I have to give it my biased rating of 10/10 (all Fabuland sets are 10/10 for me).

This set has a lot of cool elements like the park bench, lamp post, slide, telephone x 2, mail, wine jug and the awesome fire dogs!

Great review, but remember, the limit for pictures here is 800x600 :wink:

Unfortunately, I missed out on Fabuland, but hopefully, they return.

Don't just say sorry; resize those pics! They look great, but the huge size is making my browser run slowly!

The images are too huge. I got problem downloading the images onto my browser. Kindly resize them or I will have to change those images into links instead. Thanks.

Thanks, Fabuland always makes me nostalgic. I was gutted when the cancelled the line - I was only 5 years old.

It's a pity the images aren't consistenly in focus.

Thanks durge74. You might also want to re-look at your review again as your captions indicating "the" is rather off and away from your picture.

Meanwhile, great nostalgic review! I don't remember seeing anymore Fabuland reviews for years and it feels good to see one again. :wub:
