The is a slightly different version of the Tonka Strong Arm truck we discussed above. Just like the other Tonka Strong Arm trucks, you can pull the lever to watch sparks fly and activate the engine’s siren. You can also squeeze and pull the “Strong Arm” lever to raise the ladder. With a diamond-plate design, six over-sized wheels and pivoting rescue bucket this is one ultimate toy fire truck. Product Dimensions are 9 x 28 x 9.2 inches.
The is a free-wheeling lights and sound making toy fire truck that comes complete with opening doors and a realistic extending ladder. It is a quite captivating toy truck that fuels kids’ imagination and keeps them playing for hours. However I think you should note that this not actually built by Tonka. It is a Tonka licensed toy fire truck made by a company called Funrise. Some people have said that the extendable latter should be rotated using the electronic switch only and when their kids tried to rotate it manually it breaks. However kids still seem to love it even when parts of it like the ladder or hose come off. So you might want to about this truck and check it out thoroughly before buying it. After all it is only a little bit cheaper than the other fire truck toys I discussed above.
