Tonka Mighty Metals Fleet Review

This month we were delighted to be given the opportunity to review the Tonka Mighty Metals Fleet vehicles. Tonka toys actually take me right back to my own childhood as my brother and I had a large yellow Tonka Dump Truck that we played with lots over the years. I can still remember playing with it in the garden of our childhood home and rolling it down the slope we had. I couldn't wait to introduce my boys to the world of Tonka toys! 

Tonka began making toys in 1955. For almost 70 years Tonka have been the kings of the sandbox, based on the notion that "a toy should not break just because a child plays with it". They are certainly built to last. They are strong, sturdy and durable. In the 70s, an elephant even stood on one to test out this theory!

We were given the opportunity to review the Tonka Mighty Metals Fleet which consists of two different designs; the Mighty Dump Truck and the Garbage Truck. The Tonka Mighty Metal Fleet vehicles are a new size of vehicle for Tonka and are recommended for ages 3 to 6. The size of them suits little hands and means they are easy to lift and manoeuvre around. They are perfect for both indoor and outdoor play.

So what did we think? 

Dump Truck
This is just like the Dump Truck from my childhood only smaller in size. It has the same sturdy feel and weight to it and is the same bold yellow that I can remember. My little boy loved that the dumper could be lifted; he liked to put pebbles in and then tip them out. What fun! It has a realistic design and is made with sturdy, solid metal. It also has chunky off-road wheels which my boys loved testing out on the grass, soil and carpet! 



Garbage Truck
The Garbage Truck is another great toy. There is lots of attention to detail in it; it looks just like a mini version of the real thing. It has a wonderful chunky feel to it and large durable wheels. It is a bright blue colour too. My little boys loved it! 



I was thrilled to discover that these Tonka toys were just as good quality as I remember from my own childhood. I have loved seeing my boys play with them. They are certainly exceptional quality. My little boys have been quite rough with them at times, crashing them into one another, but there isn't a scratch to be seen. These toys will certainly stand the test of time. It's a thumbs up from us!
