Tonka Tough Mothers!

Oh I can't tell you how happy I am to be a Tonka Tough Mother, we love all things Tonka and the kids are so excited that they get to be ambassadors for such a big brand.

Let me tell you a bit about the brand, TONKA originated in 1947 in Mound, Minnesota originally created and manufactured by Mound Metalcraft (manufacturer of garden implements).

The company began selling metal toys, which soon became the primary business. In November 1955, Mound Metalcraft changed its name to TONKA Toys Incorporated. The name TONKA comes from the Dakota Sioux word "Tanka" or Tonka, which means "great" or "big".

In 2001, TONKA trucks were inducted into the National Toy Hall of Fame at The Strong in Rochester, New York.

For almost 70 years, TONKA trucks have been the undisputed kings of the sandbox for decades. Built on the notion that “a toy shouldn’t break just because a child plays with it,” they’re strong, sturdy and long lasting. Back in the '70s, TONKA even had an elephant stand on one, just to prove their point.

Our first assignment was to try out the Steel Classics range, check out our Vlog review of the T.S 4000 Front Loader ....

We Love

  • The Steel Classics range feel really hardy and tough geat for the rough and tough play here at Monkeyfeet HQ
  • The Front loader has movement just like the real thing
  • Its easy to use for little hands 
  • Suitable from 3+ (but I reckon with supervision you'd be fine younger
  • A lifetime Guarantee
  • The range has a great selection to chose from so an ideal suggestion for Birthday and Christmas gifts

Room For Improvement ?

Honestly nothing.! It does what it is supposed to, its great quality and it is fun to play with
