Tonka Trucks from Funrise Toys = A Boy's Best Friend! (PLUS GIVEAWAY!)


When you hear the name "Funrise Toys", you may not think that you know this company very well. 

But, if you have kids, ESPECIALLY boys, you know Funrise Toys very well! 

Hmm, have you ever heard of


Yep, that's right! Funrise Toys is the company that makes those wonderful Tonka toys that fill up every boy's toy box! 

I was surprised at how many other brands of toys Funrise Toys makes that we have in our home! 

Not only are they the company that manufactures Tonka trucks, they also produce Gazillion Bubbles products, Shelcore toys (one of my favorite brands for my little Bean!) and Sassy Stables, not to mention many, many more! 

I was thrilled to find out that I really already knew this company, without even knowing that I did!

You should have seen my Tater's face when this arrived at our doorstep: 

He seriously thought it was his birthday! He kept saying "Is this my birthday present?!?!" 

This Road Crew truck is so awesome! It has a flashing light directional sign, that uses Hyper Glow LED technology! 

It is a really cool little truck! I have never seen anything quite like this, and neither had Tater. He was so excited to see it in action! 

And once he saw it light up, that was it! He played with that thing in the dark hallway for about two hours! He kept saying "Mom, it lights up!!" 

It was so good to see a toy that wasn't a video game keep my big guy's attention for more than five minutes! 

Tonka really has a hit with this one!
After playing with his truck, we had to go online and see what other kind of cool trucks Tonka has! 

Check out all the awesome ones we found: 


Of course, all of these made our Christmas list! (Yes, my son has a Christmas list in June.He's weird.) 

While we were on the Funrise Toys site, we browsed around and looked for what other cool toys they had! 

We found these cuties for Bean: 
And more, of course, for Tater: 
Thank you, Thank you, Thank you to Funrise Toys for filling up our Christmas list!

  59. When my boys were little, about 20 years ago, they had several of the extra large Tonka trucks that they played with in the back yard. They had an entire construction zone going out there. I loved looking out my back window and seeing them having so much fun.
