My family received a Tonka Strong Arm Firetruck to review with the boys who are four and two years old. My four year old isn’t as attached to this Strong Arm Firetruck as my two year old is. I was in love with the fact that the packaging was noticeably easier than most toys.

With holidays approaching it is important for me to note that Funrise made packaging so much easier. Apparently they have listened to all the parents say how frustrating it can be to get a toy out for their child during the gift giving season. Funrise uses something call Easy Lock and with one turn of the lock on the bottom, the vehicle is released from the packaging. As a parent of three children who get lots of gifts on Christmas morning I can say the ease of opening the Tonka Strong Arm Firetruck was noticeable and yes very easy!

About the Strong Arm

Tonka is a brand many are familiar with, especially if you are raising boys. The Strong Arms are big freewheeling vehicles with a multi-action trigger-lever built in. When you pull and rev the lever, the vehicles rumble and create sparks inside the lever arm window. Squeezing the trigger will operate the vehicle’s specific action. The best part is they require no batteries! Nothing but kid power and imagination is needed for hours of fun. The Tonka Strong Arms are the winner of the iParenting Award for Outstanding Product for 2009. Recently the company found out that the Strong Arms won the Dr. Toy’s Guide 100 Best Children’s Products for 2010, the Dr Toy’s Guide 10 Best Active Products for 2010 and Best Pick for 201 Awards.

My Thoughts About the Strong Arm

As a parent I have been very impressed with the Tonka Strong Arm Firetruck, Baby K and I love to play with this as often as possible. About once a day I will tell Baby K “go get your cars and Mama will play cars with you”. I assume he will run off and grab some of his little toy cars, but nope he comes back carrying his Strong Arm Firetruck ready to play!

I have had no issues with this vehicle, I think it’s great that it’s a toy without a requirement for batteries and I do feel that the Tonka Strong Arm Firetruck or Garbage Truck would make a great gift for the 2010 Holiday Season!

    My kids love bath time so I think they would really love the Tub Town’s Main Street. So anything that gets my kids to get clean and they have fun too is a great family gift.
