Tonka Toys

Recommended Posts

I thought it would be fun to collect the Tonkas that I had when I was a kid. These two are the beginning of my collection. I just picked them up on Ebay. I still have my original Tow Truck from the 70s, but it is in bad condition (missing everything).

I just picked this up at the Love's in Des Moines, IA. I used my Love's Rewards: So it was Free.

That thing is Awesome! I Love those wrap around rear fenders and all of the attention to detail. He's right, they "hit a homerun" on that truck! Thanks for posting it.
