Funrise Toy Corporation is proud to announce that our newest item Tonka Strong Arms has been honored as a recipient of a "2009 Outstanding Products" iParenting Media Award! Tonka Strong Arms are beefy free wheeling construction vehicles with a trigger lever built into the vehicles. The trigger/lever has two functions; pull lever without squeezing the trigger and you will rev up the vehicles, they shake and sparks show in the arm window, squeeze the trigger and the vehicle will move into action; Dump Truck's bed will lift and the Bulldozer's blade will push forward.
