Review: Tonka Steel Classic Dump Truck

Over the next few months I’m working with Tonka as one of their ‘Tough Mothers’ and Little Man especially couldn’t be more excited. Tonka is every child’s dream and our first Tonka review arrived whilst we were on holiday, the Tonka Steel Classic Dump Truck.


The Tonka Steel range is made from real steel and is really made to last – like all Tonka toys. Tonka have been around for over 70 years and they really are such an iconic toy that Hubby and I were as excited as the children to crack open the Dump Truck.


The Tonka Steel Classic Dump Truck has a really sturdy steel bucket and the rest is made from rigid moulded plastic. Immediately you can tell that the Tonka Steel Classic Dump Truck is a toy that’s built to last – and I’m sure it would easily last a lifetime.


Little Man loves the Dump Truck. He spends literally hours filling it up with other toys and then pouring them on the floor before starting all over again. It’s a great toy for both inside and out and I know that we’ll be having loads of fun with the Dump Truck in the sand and mud over the coming months.


As children do, Little Man has been climbing all over the Dump Truck and even sitting in it and I have no worries about it breaking – even with a three year old in it. It’s so strong and durable that I think it would easily stand up to life with Little Man – whatever he threw at it.


Tonka toys are a really big part of childhood and for Little Man, just having the Classic Dump Truck makes him feel like all his Christmases have come at once. It’s so much bigger than other truck toys he has had and much more sturdy too that it has opened up his world of play to so many more possibilities. He couldn’t be happier.

The Tonka Steel range is available soon from Argos Online.
