"Lots to do, let's go" with the latest toy from Tonka: Tucker My Talkin' Truckbot.
It's great to see the classic brand Tonka back with a new face. This fabulous digger is a hive of activity and great friend for younger children. Standing on six substantial wheels, Tucker is big, bright and Tonka-solid. Press his wake-up button and watch him come to life. His face lights up, his mouth moves and he begins his friendly chatter "We mean business, right buddy?"
And then the real fun begins. Lift Tucker's claw to open and close the gripper, then swing the arm up through 180 degrees to throw your load into Tucker's big dump truck.
On the other side, the second arm has a very practical scoop attached. Tucker has 47 different phrases, which are programmed to match the particular activity your own little digger is asking Tucker to do. "Looks like it's lifting time" or "I can dig it". This chirpy little chappy will make sure that his building buddy is fully involved and captivated throughout the play.
When Tucker's all loaded up drive him forward (using the two arms to steer the front wheels) before tipping back the dump bed to finish the job.
And Tucker's smart enough to realise when his little building mate has disappeared off for lunch or another young distraction. He yawns and then snores as he falls asleep--practically shutting his batteries down as he does so.
While Tucker is great for indoor use, his perfect habitat is a sandpit. Tonka have clearly invested a lot of time making sure that the interactive technology works in a damp sandpit. And the finishing touch is that he is fully washable (washing instructions printed on the bottom of the pack)
3 AA batteries supplied.
Tucker My Talkin' Truckbot will delight children from 2-and-a-half to 7 years old. A perfect pal for an active busy child. --Victoria Mackenzie
