Apps for Little Firefighters

I was interested to see on Christmas Day the different types of apps the young kids at our family gathering had downloaded on their family iPads. My 3 year old nephew, who is absolutely mad about Fire Engines, obviously wanted apps where he could be a Firefighter. Not a category of apps I was instantly familiar with but his mother had found a couple that she said she would recommend. She only bought him two but still had the list she had researched. Here is the list.
