Van Nuys, CA (PRWEB) October 24, 2010
Funrise Toy Corporation is proud to announce that our new Tonka Strong Arms Fire Engine and Garbage Truck have each been honored as a recipient of “Dr. Toy's Best Picks Children's Products 2010.” The Strong Arm Garbage Truck & Fire Engine are big burly free-wheeling vehicles with a multi-action trigger-lever built right in. Pull and rev-up the lever and watch the sparks fly in the window as the Fire Engine’s air siren wails. Squeeze the lever's trigger to raise the Fire Engine’s ladder and dump the Garbage dumpster in the rear of the Garbage Truck. These sturdy vehicles are Built for Adventure and requires no batteries, just "Kid Power."
