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.

                I purchased the Tonka Steel Trencher for my grandsons fourth birthday. For any occasion we always purchase Tonka toys such as bulldozer, road grater etc. He and his brother love these toys and look forward to receiving them as gifts. They play with them inside and outside. They especially like playing in the dirt with them. There have been many times that I've purchased two of the same toy so they can play together

                As grandparents we purchased the Tonks Steel
                As grandparents we purchased the Tonka Steel Trencher for our grandsons fourth birthday. He loved it. He owns many Tonka toys. He loves playing with the trencher outside under a tree digging dirt. He spends a lot of time outdoors playing with his brother with his Tonka backhoe ,roadgrader and trencher. We are very pleased to buy him something he actually enjoys playing with.
