Funrise Toy Corporation is proud to announce our newest addition to our Tonka Strong Arm line of vehicles, the Tonka Strong Arm Cement Mixer, has won Dr. Toy’s “10 Best” and “100 Best Children’s Product Award” in the Active Play category for 2011.
The Tonka Strong Arm Cement Mixer is a large free-wheeling truck with large treaded tires. The Cement Mixer features a multi-action trigger-lever built right in. Pull and rev-up the lever and watch the sparks fly in the arm’s window as the truck rumbles. Squeeze the lever’s trigger to rotate and mix in the cement barrel. When the mixing is done, the barrel is removable for easy cleaning. Tonka Strong Arms is built for Kid Powered Fun!
