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!

I gave this a "1" rating because the most important pieces of the front end loader (the bucket and lift arm) are cheap plastic that constantly breaks apart. They had an awesome lift mechanism from way back that was not only durable, but worked extremely well. For some reason they decided to screw up the engineering geometry, making it backwards and awkward to use, plus so cheap that the 2 plastic pins for the bucket WILL NOT stay in the bucket bracket. I tried it on a hard floor picking up Legos and the mechanism requires that it be pushed forward to tilt the bucket and then lift bucket arms to raise it. At this point the cheap plastic pins pop out of the bucket and the whole lift arm/bucket falls apart. I tried numerous times and with similar results. Remember this was with Legos...it hasn't even made it to the sandbox yet. Very disappointed with "TONKA STEEL" products. I paid a premium and expected a better product from the company that used to be built here.

                  Only part of it os made of steele unlike the true classic Tonkas from back in the day. The loader is actually made of plastic & is very cruddy it does npt stay up & cant even hold the weight of more than a few cheerios. Got it as a birthday gift for my baby boy and was beyond disappointed. Would not recommend for someone looking to buy a real Tonka Steele classic truck.

                    The manufacturers of Tonka don't know what business they are in - the loader that I gave my 3 year old grandson doesn't work. When trying to lift and load anything more than a quarter ounce pebble, the bucket just flops down and drops the load. Frustration for all. The plastic and pins are so light that several parts are already broken. Where is the tough as steel designs of the past where a Tonka truck would last for several generations? Tonka no longer deserves its reputation as making rugged toys that can take all that a 3 year old can hand out
