Tonka XT by Hasbro

Tonka XT

As a member of Bzz Agent,  I recently was given the lucky opportunity of reviewing a Tonka XT.  Now with three son's,  there is no way I could pass up that offer!  In fact,  my oldest son keeps begging me for a remote controlled car,  so it couldn't have came in at a better time.  Our sons are huge Tonka and Hasbro fans,  including my husband who grew up on Tonka Toys, so it made it even more exciting that is was from such a household loved brand.  I mean,  what boys don't like Tonka,  right!  Not to mention all the other great toys that Hasbro offers.

The Tonka XT Ricochet Tricksters R/C is not your average remote controlled car,  it is much more than that!  Remember playing with remote control cars as a child,  the kind that you just pushed the forward and backward button?  So do I,  but since our days they have advanced so much,  so much in fact that they can do awesome tricks with the trigger on the remote!  Press the  "trick trigger" and your child will be able to do one of three remarkable tricks including the "Rampage Flip",  the "Buzzsaw Spin",  and the "Zig-Zag Jolt".  Upside down means nothing when it comes to the Trickster,  as it can flip,  spin,  or jerk without interfering with it's operation.

It came time to put it to the test and let's just say it sure didn't disappoint.  I knew he was going to like it but I didn't expect him to enjoy it as much as he did.  He would play with it for 25 minutes,  charge it up for about twenty five minutes,  play with it again,  and then kept repeating it over and over.   Even my husband joined in on all the fun,  and I almost thought I was going to have to get him one too!  It took him a bit to get use to it,  but in no time he was a pro. With the help of his dad,  he has mastered all three exciting tricks!

 He was asking for some type of track,  so we ended up making him a jump using the top of his toy box.  The controller requires five AAA batteries,  so be sure to stock up on some triple A batteries.  The Tonka XT by Hasbro would make a great gift for any boy,  or a fun way to keep your child entertained.  Please keep in mind that this particular toy is intended for indoor use,  so make sure you make a special spot for your child to play with his Tonka XT. 

BUY IT:  You can purchase the Tonka XT for only $24.99 at Walmart,  Target, Toys "R" Us,  and K-Mart (in the remote control aisle).

*Disclaimer - I received a Tonka XT, free of charge,   as a member of Bzz Agent.  In no way did this alter my opinion of their products.  All of my opinions are one hundred percent honest and true.*
