Little Mister H is obsessed with vehicles. He loves any toy that moves and can be rolled across the floor. But he particularly loves construction vehicles. So when we were given the chance to review Tonka Power Movers Vehicles I knew that he would be a very happy boy.
Tonka Power Movers Vehicles – A Review
Tonka Power Movers Cement Mixer
Every night, Little Mister H insists that we read him the book Goodnight, Goodnight Construction Site before he goes to sleep. He loves the story of all the construction vehicles finishing their tough building work and settling down to sleep. And he especially loves to hear about the cement mixer stopping its dizzy whirring and having a good snore instead. So he was grinning from ear to ear when he saw that he had been sent the Tonka Power Movers Cement Mixer. I could barely stop him from tearing the box to bits in an attempt to get to his Tonka Power Movers Vehicle.
The Tonka Power Movers Vehicles come in the classic Tonka Toy yellow. And the first thing that I noticed about our Cement Mixer was how well made it is. It is a really sturdy toy. Which is great as it will have to cope with a bit of battering from my rough and tumble pre-schooler. However, even though it is sturdy it is light enough to carry around. When Little Mister H first got his Tonka Power Mover Cement Mixer he carried it with him everywhere he went.
The Tonka Power Mover Cement Mixer also has great attention to detail. The drum of the cement mixer can be turned with a handle and the funnel that dispenses the cement can be moved back and forth.
Motion Drive Technology
By far the best thing about the Tonka Power Movers Vehicles is that it uses new Motion Drive Technology. When Little Mister H moves the Cement Mixer it responds by making the appropriate noises. For example, when Little Mister H pushes the Cement Mixer forward the engine revs and the lights go on. When he pushes the vehicle backwards then the Cement Mixer makes reversing noises. And when you turn the handle and the Cement Mixer drum rotates you can hear hydraulic sounds and the lights flash. You can see a short video of the Cement Mixer in action below:
The Motion Drive Technology means that the Tonka Power Movers Vehicles are hugely engaging toys that are capable of holding the attention of even the most fickle pre-schooler. Our Cement Mixer is often used in imaginative play and for recreating Goodnight, Goodnight Construction Site. Little Mister H really does love the interactive nature of this toy.
The Tonka Power Movers Vehicles was recently awarded GOLD in the 2018 Practical pre-school awards and can be bought from Amazon at an RRP of £19.99. The collection includes a Dump Truck, Cement Mixer, Front Loader and Bull Dozer. And all vehicles have the amazing new Motion Drive Technology. I’m sure any vehicle obsessed child would be delighted to receive a Tonka Power Movers Vehicle for Christmas. Little Mister H loves his Cement Mixer and he is hoping that Santa will bring him the Bull Dozer.
