As you know, we here at UKMums.TV love a bit of rough and tumble and love the Tonka Tough week that has taken over the website!
As part of this fab takeover, we sent some top parental bloggers some fab Tonka kits to introduce them to all three Tonka collections and to take a look at some fab vehicles on offer! It’s safe to say they went down a storm, but here’s just a few snapshots of what our mums and dads really thought!
Coffee, Cake, Kids on Tonka Steel
“Built to last and withstand even the toughest Tonka kids, this is a deluxe version of the Classic Mighty Dump Truck! It comes complete with a moveable bed and it is ready to take charge in any construction zone. Ben and his friend Charlie have had hours of fun in the park with this, digging in the sand and dirt. While big, it is not particularly heavy and it’s easy for even a three-year-old to use. Complementing the dump truck beautifully is the slightly smaller but by no means less fun Tonka steel classic bulldozer. It clears everything in its path and has workable parts for moving gravel, sand and soil – perfect for both outdoor play and indoor play.”
That Little Outfit on Tonka Metal Movers
“The Tonka Metal Movers Combo Pack contains a mighty dump truck and bulldozer, with even more Tonka tough dirt. Retailing at just £11, I think this set is brilliant value. It would make a great birthday of Christmas present at this price point and has everything you need for budding builders to spend hours engaged in imaginative play. The toys are designed for boys and girls aged 3 and up (Rory is not quite 3 yet but loved them!) and is a great way to encourage independent play, develop fine motor skills and is a really fun sensory experience.
The dump truck and bulldozer are perfect for loading up with dirt, or the smaller vehicles, and they even come with a bonus collector card.”
Mummy That’s Me on Mighty Fleet
“What I really love is that the Tonka Mighty Metals Fleet can be used indoors and out. My youngest loves playing outside so it was great that he could use his new toys in the garden. He thought playing with them outside was so much fun. He put stones in them and moved them to different areas in the garden, parked them up and even took them out on the street to show his friends. J is so proud of his new Tonka Mighty Metal Fleet vehicles. He uses his imagination and engages in role play using both trucks and different areas of the garden.”
Don’t forget, you can buy Tonka from Argos, John Lewis, Very, The Entertainer and all good independent toy retailers.
