Are you familiar with Tonka Toys?
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.
Now there is a Tonka toy Selection available in selected ASDA stores, with prices ranging from £1.99 to £9.99.
Tonka has hit the shelves in selected ASDA stores and what’s more, until 7th October Tonka is part of ASDA’s Rollback campaign and all items are 25% off! What a bargain! Time to stock up on a few gifts to put away for Christmas maybe? Why pay more than you have to right?
