Tonka XT Ricochet Tricksters Provide Both Tricks and Treats

Li’l Man is a live wire. The folks at Tonka have created a toy to give him a run for his money, the Tonka XT Ricochet Trickster. It’s a remote-controlled stunt vehicle from Hasbro that takes play to a whole new level. He thinks he’s amazing with his driving abilities that have the Ricochet Trickster zipping, zooming and performing crazy tricks.

There’s a easy, hands-on  “trick trigger” function that allows the driver to perform one of three pre-programmed stunts (the stunt depends on the type of Ricochet Trickster). To add even more excitement, they’ve included the “Rampage Flip,” the “Buzzsaw Spin,” and the “Zig-Zag Jolt” . Think Green Machine on a smaller scale! Since Tonka XT Ricochet Tricksters can drive on two sides, there’s no “upside down”; the vehicles can flip, jerk, or spin without interrupting the action – Finally, a toy they don’t keep yelling, “Mom!” for me to come and fix.

Don’t let the pre-programed tricks think it ends there. Li’l Man is creating his own awesome tricks with his own imagination! Think of the possibilities with cardboard–remember bike and skateboard ramps–yup! Launch the Tonka XT Ricochet Trickster into a whole new universe. Everything becomes a resource for Li’l Man and his Tonka XT Ricochet Trickster–steps and garbage cans aren’t immune.

I’m in awe everytime Li’l Man launches, drops or drives it off of something. I keep thinking the Tonka XT has met its match with Li’l Man, but it’s Tonka tough and continues to ricochet.
