Tonka Roadway Rigs Review (& Giveaway Ends 1/5)

Tonka Roadway Rigs

Funrise/ Ages 4 and up

Tonka Roadway Rigs are a top holiday pick this season from Chris Byrne The Toy Guy ® from Time to Play.


What It Is

The Tonka Roadway Rigs are sturdy, plastic, free-wheeling trucks that come in police, fire truck, and rescue themes. Each of the trucks has themed lights and sounds (three different sounds), and each comes with a trailer and a light-up sign that the trucks can tow to the rescue just like kids see in the real world. The Roadway Rigs Fire Rescue truck comes with a sign that says “Road Closed” and the Roadway Rigs Police truck comes with a sign that says “Checkpoint Ahead.” Other Tonka Roadway Rigs trucks include Life Guard with “High Tide” sign and Construction with “Road Work Ahead” sign.

Why It’s Fun

There are few things that boys love to play with more than trucks. Some of the most popular trucks are police and fire trucks. The Roadway Rigs will inspire a lot of imaginative rescue play. Tonka has always stood for great, basic play and that’s what the Roadway Rigs are all about.

Who It’s For

The Tonka Roadway Rigs are for ages 4 and up.

What to Be Aware of

Save the package insert because it has signs and roadblocks printed on it that an adult can cut out so kids can create a whole rescue environment.

Each truck requires six AAA batteries, which are included.

I got the chance to check out the Roadway Rigs police truck with road crew sign.  My boys got a kick out of the sounds on the police truck and pulling around the construction sign.  They are durable pieces and pretty big for kids to play with.  The set though does take six batteries (3 AA and 3 AAA batteries.)

BUY IT: Check out the Tonka Roadway Rigs for $19.99 wherever toys are sold.

WIN IT: (1) US winner will receive a Tonka Roadway Rig (style may vary)
