In 1949, the Tonka Mighty Dump was presented to the public, and from this single truck came a series of Mighty trucks, two of which are the Hydraulic Dump and the Bottom Dump. Tonka, meaning GREAT in Sioux, wanted to make toys for little boys that can stand the test of time. They wanted something that boys can play with for a very long time, hence, their designs and materials are always top-of-the-line.

Brief History By 1987, it has introduced toys specifically for the younger set preschool-aged boys. During its 50th year, it celebrated in a big way by hosting a national truck tour. The Tonka trucks continued to get even more popular and expanded through many partnerships including Hasbro toys. Their roster now includes die-cast, trucks with mini lights and sounds even books!

In 2005, the Tonka Toughest Mighty Dump Truck, introduced the previous year, was replicated life-sized to tour nationally for the truck tour. To date, Tonka keeps finding innovative ways to make their trucks even stronger, more durable and lifelike while maintaining its standard of excellence found in every Tonka toy.

For the Little Engineer For the little one who loves to play with trucks, the Tonka Dump Truck is the perfect gift for him. You can choose from the Tonka Might trucks series including the Toughest Mighty Dump Truck.

You may also check out their website or visit online shopping sites that carry Tonka toys for a list of all their toys. Its best to compare prices with a few online shops before making your purchase.

Remember to ask about their delivery turnaround time, shipping and handling policy, payment mode - VISA, Mastercard or something else - return policy for damaged toy/s or erroneous toys delivered and money back guarantee.

Online shops know that there have been a lot of internet scams including shopping sites, and they understand that customers want to be assured that the same thing wont happen to them. Thoroughly discuss their online security system and identity theft protection.

Finally, ask about their Tonka toys where they come from, what models they carry, warranties, and such. Unfortunately, another online scam is peddling products that are either fake or secondhand passed on as brand new. You have to be sure about where you get your shopping done online.

Better still, visit your nearest retail shop and ask for their Tonka toys. You can either take a good look at the one you like before ordering it online, or you can just get it there yourself. Either way, your little boy will definitely flip once he sees his Tonka Dump Truck!

What useful content there is in The Tonka Mighty Dump Truck article, is incorrect. The first Mighty Tonka Dump was introduced in 1964. Tonkas first dump truck was new in 1949. There is a huge difference. The 1949 dump is assigned to what Tonka called their "Regular" series. In 1964, Tonka introduced the "Mighty" series with the Mighty Dump the first of many models in the Mighty Tonka toy-line. The "Mighty" series is typically associated with the large yellow construction trucks.
