If you’re heading toTruckfest South West & Wales next weekend, then you’re in for more of a treat than initially thought. TOMY will be launching an exciting new range of city themed 1:16 scale toys named Big Works, modelled on Iveco’s heavy truck range – available to test drive at the Three Counties Showground in Malvern.
Designed especially for children aged 3 – 8 years, the new collection includes a Dump Truck (tipper), Cement Mixer and a Rubbish Collection Lorry, which will all be showcased opposite the Iveco stand at Truckfest. A designated play area with playmats, hard hats, rocks and road signs will be available for junior construction and truck fanatics.
Your children can become official toy testers for the day, with all visitors receiving a ‘Big Works Official Tester’ badge. There will also be the chance to win each of the three new vehicles in a prize draw!
“We are thrilled to be launching our new Big Works range at Truckfest,” said Emilia Lawes, senior sales and marketing manager across TOMY’s farm ranges. “It is the perfect audience for us and we cannot wait to see junior truckers getting to grips with the new Iveco toys.”
Fun features include:
- working steering, lights and sounds
- Iveco Dump Truck has a moving tipper body
- Iveco Cement Mixer has a rotating drum and cement shoot
- Iveco Rubbish Lorry comes with a bin that can be flipped to empty
The city-themed trucks are presented in unique ‘pull out and play’ boxes – a concept created by Nottingham Trent University product design student, Lukasz Bialkowki, winner of the 2014 TOMY Big Works design competition.
Unless you will be at Truckfest next weekend, you’ll have to wait until August to buy this new range with a suggested retail price of £34.99 for the Iveco Dump Truck and £39.99 for the Iveco Cement Mixer Lorry and Iveco Rubbish Collection Lorry.
