|The Tonka Strong Arm Fire Engine|
The Tonka Strong Arm Fire Engine has arrived in Florida, and my house is now filled up with laughter, happiness, sirens and sparks.
As a mother of three boys the holiday time always means stocking up on batteries, because once Christmas Eve comes around the batteries will be needed. The Tonka Strong Arm is changing this problem, because it does not need batteries.
The Tonka Strong Arm is built to last, it is sturdy and yet it has technical features that only a mom or dad could have thought of. It has a multi-function trigger lever that makes a siren sound, lights a spark and raises the fire engine ladder – all without batteries. The beautiful, bright-red fire engine is sure to make little boys all over the country go crazy on Christmas morning, and I can almost promise that moms and dads will be down on the floor checking out the action too.
The multi-function trigger lever is a hit with my boys, and I tried to capture some of the action. Above you see my eight-year old pulling the lever and lighting up a spark, and below you see a close up of some of the spark action.

The only problem I have with the Tonka Strong Arm Fire Engine is that all three of my boys want to use it at the same time. It is recommended from Ages 3 and up, but it is a hit with all three of my boys ages 15 months, 4 and 8 years old.
