this was a gift for my grandson, he called to tell me he LOVED it! My daughter said he'd been playing with the front loader and the classic dump truck all day! happy that they are mostly metal and not plastic!

It's useless...the notch that is supposed to hold up the bucket handle is so tiny and weak - just a plastic indentation - that the digger part slips right past it and falls down...even when me or dad try it.

1. As soon as you try to dig into sand, the bucket arm drops past the indentation and empties the contents - when you don't want to.

2. With the old Tonka diggers, you could use one hand to dig and dump. This one you have to use two hands to dig and dump - so you can't keep your hand on the back of the truck. What's wrong with these manufacturers that the quality gets so much worse with time?

Wish I had time to send it back !! But with an active boy and a baby, I can just see it growing dust in the corner. This is a lot of money to spend for a toy that is so badly made. I would have expected a company like Tonka to be trustworthy.

I can't seem to find a good digger anywhere.

I bought this for my grandson for Christmas last year - I had already gotten a large dump truck for his sandbox and he needed a digger. I remembered the all metal Tonkas my son had growing up and wanted to get the same thing for my grandson. This seems to be very sturdy although tricky to operate at first.

I have had Tonka toys when I was a kid. These are defiantly not the same. First off as one person here said. It will not really dig at all. The bucket will not sit flat on the floor. Also it will not scoop up any thing. It seems the angles are all wrong. Once you push it into some thing you want to lift. Start picking up the bucket, all the things spill out. This is because you cannot tip the bucket back far enough. At low heights it will not keep any items in the bucket. Then the worst part of this item. This has a control handle that lifts and raises the bucket. This is all put together and mounted with all plastic POS!!!! My small grandchild as he pushes this with handle and tries to play with it. All this plastic linkage pop's out of place from the bucket. Then of coarse it is not usable at all. Worthless, Worthless, Worthless, Worthless!!!!!!!!!! Don't waste you money, or just put it on the shelf to look at...

Much larger than I imagined which is good. My Nephew started playing with it instantly. I am pleased with my purchase.

We purchased this for our 2 year old grandson and he totally loved what he calls his "digger". I would highly recommend this product for youngsters who are fascinated with trucks and construction equipment. This has been a great addition to compliment his other construction equipment.

One item that would help the sale of this product is that the picture of the tonka product is covered up too much with the packaging of the box, really hard to see the details. Show this product without packaging.

Have been looking for the old classics for quite some time. My grandson will enjoy these just as much as my son , did.

What's not to love? Heavy duty steel, guaranteed for life, fun to play with, and BIG! I got this for my two year old grandson who is crazy about trucks, tractors, cars, and construction equipment. He loves it, and it goes perfectly with a big dump truck (you have to fill it using something, right?) Like blue jeans, there are some things that never get dated...this is one of them.
