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 toy is a little smaller and less sturdy than I'd like, but still a pretty nice trencher. The price was better here than anywhere else by a long shot.

      Bought this Tonka for our son a few weeks ago. He loves it and it is quite durable. I love that that most of it is metal, it's more durable and long lasting. Just wish the digger on the back wasn't plastic, it's not the strongest when it comes to my toddler playing with it. But overall very satisfied!

        I bought this Tonka because 1) its metal, not as well made as they were when I was a kid but non the less, it isn't cheap plastic. 2) My daughter I felt needed to have some Tonkas to use outside in the sand area we have. She absolutely loves the trucks we purchased for her bday and so far so good with durability. Great purchase and has been keeping my 4 and even 9 year old daughter busy!
