Product Description

The Tonka Classics Trencher is specially designed for digging and dumping fun! Use the backhoe to dig trenches, then scoop and dump the load with the working bucket. There's no job too big for this hardworking vehicle. With Tonka tough styling, this vehicle is built to last and guaranteed for life!



Did you know that "Tonka" means "great" in Sioux? It's no surprise considering just how long this great, reliable brand of toy trucks has been around! In 1947, the first Tonka brand toy trucks were actually designed and manufactured by the Mound Metalcraft Company, a small garden toll manufacturer operating from a small schoolhouse basement in Minnesota. In their first year of operation, a staff of only a half dozen people produced a total of 37,000 metal trucks with two designs. This inventory sold out in just a few months as many post-World War II families quickly accepted this new toy. As a result, in 1949, the first Tonka dump truck was introduced launching the first generation of the Tonka brand's family tree. Today, the Tonka brand upholds the same premise it was found on: a toy should be durable and provide the child with as much play value possible. Find Tonka products right here at Toys R Us!

Steel should be removed from the name of the product. The only metal is the the yellow section and that is a light wrapping. I had thought this was to be the same as the Original Tonka toys. Was ordering for my Grandson out of state. Thought I would give ordering from home a try, do not like crowds. What a dream way of shopping, this was a disapointment. This come in the mail and it is PLASTIC! If I wanted plastic I would have ordered plastic not an item that stated it had steel in it. Those buckets won't last a day out side in the dirt. Packing of the box was a real treat too. Had to put the Dump Truck back together on the Little Tykes because it was apart. The box was smashed. Not enough packing material to keep stuff secured and from shifting. Box too flimmsy.

      This is a great toy for playing outside and digging in the dirt/ sand. We plan to take it camping this summer because it is sturdy and don't fear it breaking from packing and traveling. Toys R Us price matched this toy for us.

        I got this for my nephew's 8th birthday and he loved it! Actually he pushed the other toys he got to the side and started playing with the Tonka steel trencher. His brothers and sister wanted to play with it too. I'm glad he really enjoyed the birthday present!

          My grandson has been anxious for summer and was asking for an excavator. We decided to buy the trencher as part of his Easter gift. He loves it. We had great weather for Easter and my guy was playing in the dirt and the gravel with his new toy. A big hit. Good quality toy that digs and smooths out the dirt.

                This item is not as big as the classic Tonka trucks that I had in my childhood in the 80's and 90's. We bought it for my 2 year old son to play with in combination with his Tonka dump truck. The trencher is much smaller than the Classic dump truck but he can still transfer into the dump truck. The knobs on the trencher are a little difficult for smaller hands to maneuver- more appropriate for 4 years or older I would think.
