Tonka Trucks

When I was a child, little boys in school played with Tonka Trucks. I remember the cling clanking sounds of their play yard games. Now I have a family that includes many little boys. Initially, I had not bothered with those more expensive Tonka trucks because there were so many knockoff versions that were way less expensive. Well, one birthday, someone gave one of my sons a 
Tonka dumptruck. This dump truck has lasted for about 3+ years, despited being thrown down steps, played with in dirt, on concrete, on a hilly driveway, and even brought back indoors afterwards! My sons would take turns playing with it, and enjoyed it so much. My husband recently bought three more of the Tonka trucks (the cement mixer, another dumptruck and a smaller dumptruck). The children have loved playing games with them and the durability of the framework withstands rough play...even from my older children (8-10 y.o.)! I highly recommend these trucks. You'll spend more up front, but it will be well worth the purchase in the long run; when you don't have to replace the weaker models so frequently.
