Mixed feelings on this one. I was NOT the person who TD this one. Has 5 start rating on Amazon with lots of reviews. But when reading the description, many listed this is mostly plastic and only the bed is actual steel, so would be misleading to say the least when thinking of this Tonka from yester-decades.

I am now 52 and remember the Tonkas as a kid, espcially this dump truck .. they were ALL steel and we use to try to break them .. and they would not break! Remember just trying to get a wheel off!?? Taking a hammer to it!?? It would bend and such and you could dent it, but is was nearly impossible for an 8 year old to bust a part off.

I might still order one for the grand kids to see, but being mostly plastic as many are saying, might be very disappionting, for anyone who remembers the real all steel Tonkas.

Will save my rating on this one for a wait and see. Smilie

Thanks for clarifying. Wonder if they even make an all steel one anymore? Anyway, thought this one was a good deal even though the list price is inflated. EEK!:

No problem and again, I did not TD this. I only mentioned it because I remember having these as a kid and they were basically all steel (shortly after the stone age laugh out loud). You could not even hammer a wheel off...we tried! LMAO

This still may be a decent deal at the price, I simply do not know what there have been running cost wise. But mostly all plastic would be a disaapointment and good chance of easily broken.

Unfortunately NOTHING is like back in the days. Furniture is throw away now, linen, clothing and shoes as well.

Nothing is made to last. Seems people and especially kids nowadays only get entertained for a day or two before moving on to the next fad.

Things are not like the past. They don't and won't make them like before.

Better luck looking on eBay or elsewhere for a used vintage one but it's gonna cost and the chances your grandchild is going to be excited about as much as you were, are slim to none Smilie

Absolutely and totally agree! You are 100% correct, at least from a "first world" view.

Isn't it amazing how fast almost everything has changed in the US? Unfortunately most for the bad (hence the state of the country and society you see before you).

I see too many people loo at "third world" countries in such a negative light in many cases. But I personally very much enjoy them much more than "first world" countries.

Yes, they are poverty stricken in most cases, but they are also many times still very rooted and grounded to the true basics in life. It can be the very simple things in life that can easily make them happy and truly appriate the small things that most in "first world" countries tae for granted now. As you say, which is true, they are lucy to have a 15 minute attention span and if its not of thier cell phones or tablets, they have absolutely no clue of what is "real" in this world.

Sad, but true.
