#HolidayPalooza – Funrise Toys – Tonka (review)

Welcome to Holiday Palooza 2011!! I have some great ideas for gifts this year! Check back often because I also have some great giveaways too! If you are looking to buy for someone in particular check the “Holiday Palooza” tab at the top and I have everything categorized for Baby, Kids, Women, Men, Pets and Other as well as a list of all the sponsors! All my current giveaways (as well as how many days are left til it ends) and most recent posts are on my sidebar as well!!

With all my boys, we’re not short on cars, trucks, airplanes, trains and whatever else may have wheels on it…so of course for Christmas they are going to get more (because what else would boys want?!?!) It’s no surprise a common name on the trucks in this house is Tonka!

Funrise Toys sent us a Tonka Road Crew Tool Truck and this thing is awesome!

Take on the toughest jobs with the toughest tools! The Tonka Tools Fire Truck features an opening rear hatch that reveals a cool motorized jaws-of-life tool! Use the tool for your rescue missions and activate the flashing lights and realistic sounds feature with the push of a button. Now you’re a real Tonka Hero!

It’s a truck that kids can really use their imaginations with! It’s 2 toys in 1, a Fire Truck and a power tool (jaws-of-life)! It’s big enough that Jaxon can easily get his hands on it and play with it (it’s for ages 3+), yet still big boy enough to where Jeffery would love to play with it too!

They have more than just the fire truck and jaws-of-life, there is also a Utility Truck with Jackhammer plus many other Tonka trucks!

I received products for the purpose of reviewing at no cost to me. All opinions expressed are of my own and not influenced by anything or anyone.

    Love this toy. Can’t find it anywhere online – we are in the states. My son only want the jaws of life for Christmas. He says it’s his birthday and motions with his hands the scissor movement of the jaws of life. So cute! Where can I find it online? Thanks!!

  3. Tonka toys are GREAT – they’ve been around since before my Kids were little, & they really stand up to some hard-play!!! Great toys for outside, in the sand-box, wherever!!!

  4. My cousins absolutely love these. I always get them one for Christmas!

  5. Tonka has always been the name in trucks. Growing up, we didn’t have Tonka because my Dad sold construction equipment, we got the sample toys that they used as models. However, now those are no longer available, Tonkas are back on my shopping list for the boys in my family.
