For almost 70 years Tonka have been a household name with regards to durable toys that last a lifetime. With having six children we have a large collection of Tonka toys that have been passed down from brothers to sisters and now my grandchildren.
We were recently sent the Classic Toughest Mighty Dump truck which is a fabulous large toy that is part of a core collection, Tonka are taking toys back to basics. The Classics Toughest Mighty Dump Truck is built to last and is the deluxe version of the original Mighty Dump Truck. RRP £49 and aimed at children ages 3+
It is perfect for work outdoors digging and moving mud or rocks and would work really well in sand pits or play areas. The moveable bed makes tipping and lifting items super easy and the girls had so much fun moving toys and mess around.
Unfortunately the weather has been awful here so we haven’t had a chance to get outside with it but I can see Amelia eyeing the gravel pathway so goodness knows where that is going to end up!
Alongside the the Mighty Dump Truck we were sent the Classic Bulldozer. Although smaller than the dump truck the bulldozer is just as great for role play and getting little ones interested in moving things around. Priced at £24.99 we think it is a great stand alone toy and very well made. It makes a great work partner to its big brother!
The girls had so much fun which just goes to show too that toys are unisex, there doesn’t need to be any pink or blue involved! They spent hours moving everything from toys to treats and packing peanuts from one place to another which means I got to have a coffee in peace! That in itself is priceless!
Overall we feel the Tonka Classic range of toys are perfect for any age and ability. They would be a great addition to any Christmas list!

For those who prefer a more traditional home-like experience when on vacation, a timeshare can make sense. If you’ve gotten many years of good use out of your timeshare and now want to get rid of it, a timeshare cancellation company like Timeshare Freedom Group or Lonestar transfer may be able to help.
