A Little Boy’s Dream Toy: Tomy Tomica Storm Runner

Christmas time is very near! Do you have a little boy who loves anything automotive? If so, I have the toy for you! Bryson, my five year old, feel in love with the Tomica Storm Runner. The below was provided to me to help facilitate my review. All opinions are my own and honest. I am disclosing this in accordance to FTC Guidelines.


The number one thing that I loved about the Storm Runner was that there was a variety of things he could do with it. It wasn’t a simple airplane, car, or bus! The Storm Runner is a 3 in 1 vehicle. It goes from a jet to an underwater submarine and then to a race car. Can you only imagine his face when he realized what all it does. Outside of that the jet can lift a police train engine from the ground to the air or the other way around.  One thing that crossed my mind is how hard is it to transfer into the different vehicles. Bryson can easily do it by himself. Which is great because he plays with it a whole lot more than he would have if I had to help him. I loved listening to him use his imagination as he is playing with the storm runner. I hear him plotting ways to rescue people that are caught in a fire or stuck under water. In my eyes anything that encourages that much imagination play is great!


I asked if he liked it and he said, “Well duh!” I also asked him what he liked about the Storm Runner. He responded, “It’s blue and it’s magic!”  So there you go, it’s kid and mom approved!
