My mom has always told me that every kid deserves to have a Tonka Truck. Well all the new Tonka Trucks are plastic and I wanted the original like the one my brother and I used to play with. And I found this. It is a little smaller than I was expecting but it will be perfect for my little cousin who just turned 3. It shipped on time and in excellent condition!
I would have gave it 5 stars, but the frame of the truck is plastic. I had a all metal version of this when I was younger, so I got this for my son. I am a little disappointed in the plastic frame, but still a great toy.
We bought a Mighty Tonka for our son for Christmas 1973. He played with it and loved it for years and years. This is the closest thing we have found to the "original." The bottom is plastic, not metal, but the upper is metal, and even our son says it is the best he has seen. We gave it to our grandson for Christmas and he LOVES it. One of the first things he wanted to do was kneel in the back and have his dad and grand-dad push him back and forth. He told us several times that he really liked his truck. This is "the real thing" and was a great hit.
I just purchased this Tonka Dump Truck for my grandson. He is loving it.. Every little boy needs a Tonka Dump Truck. My husband and I made sure our sons had a Tonka, And I believe they still have them.. Built to last!!
