Funrise Tonka Strong Arm Fire Truck Review & Giveaway

Do you happen to remember my review of the Funrise Tonka Strong Arm Dump Truck? Now that was a great product and my sons have had some fun with it. I'm so excited to share with everyone my review of the Tonka Strong Arm Fire Truck. The same strong arm sparks, but with a blaring siren noise with the pull of the handle. Ladder pops up to the rescue with the pull of the lever and handle and you can extend it out.

This is sure to be a favorite of little firefighters everywhere. My boys enjoy putting the favorite character on the edge of the ladder and then he flies off when they pull the handle & lever. The baby laughs and laughs! I love the difference in the sound from the dump truck to the fire truck.

Funrise will make a lot of children happy with all the strong arm trucks this season and they will make one of my readers happy with their very own Tonka Strong Arm Fire Truck. Thanks to Funrise for being a part of the Holiday Gift Guide.
