Tonka Tinys Review and A Tonka 70th Anniversary Giveaway!

Tonka playthings have been a constant in the toy boxes of generations of kids since their inception in 1947, with 2017 marking a proud and significant, 70th Anniversary for the brand. Tonka trucks and car-themed toys are readily classed as a 'forever hit' by consumers, a fact which sees just about every kid coveting a much-loved vehicle or two of their own.

Our own boys have played long and hard with their collection of much-loved Tonka trucks which continue to bring ready smiles to their faces today.

New Tonka Tinys Car Crush Escape and Blast and Dash Quarry Playsets.

In a dramatic change from the giant Tonka trucks we've accumulated over the years, Tonka have newly released a welcome and exciting range of portable minis with the aim of creating thrilling and memorable adventures for a whole new generation of kids. 

Tonka Tinys are unique, fully self-contained playsets which miniaturise all the thrills to be had with the Tonka brand.

The Tonka Tinys Blast and Dash Quarry Playset
RRP $17 at Big W, Toys R' Us, Toyworld and other specialty toy stores.
Recommended age is three plus but ideally, the five plus age group
would find these toys most appropriate due to the smaller parts.

Our 9 year old son was happily away with his imagination as soon as these playsets were in his hands! Tonka Tinys Playsets are quick to set up and yet so full of detail and intrigues - they're guaranteed to entertain children beyond a first glance.

The Tonka Tinys Blast and Dash Quarry Playset (above), offers kids loads of exciting action with its very own detonator, tumbling tower and steep road slide. The set comes with a highly-detailed construction vehicle and you can connect this set to any other Tonka Tinys Playset in the range for truly adaptive play.

The Tonka Tinys Car Crush Escape Playset (below), offers kids a completely different set of connective adventures with a working car-crushing mechanism, crane and fun catapult. Again this set comes with a matching vehicle and provides hours of fun for kids.

Tonka Tinys Singles are RRP $4.99 each with a recommended age range of 3 plus. They're available at Big W, Kidstuff, Mr Toys, Toys R' Us, Toyworld and other toy stores.

Tonka Tinys Singles are a range of vehicles that come individually packaged in small shipping containers, designed specifically with the collector in mind. Kids can expand on their driving adventures with their playsets by collecting the whole set. (There's even a helicopter which my son was thrilled to unbox!) There are over 50 different replicas of real life trucks and vehicles to collect in the range.

Tonka Tinys Car Crush Escape Playset is RRP $17 with a recommended age range of three plus.
(Ideally suited to ages five plus.) Find it at Big W, Toys R' Us, Toyworld and other specialty stores.
The verdict: As parents, we love that this range are miniatures which means they don't take up too much space either during playtime or in storage! Our boys totally embraced the themes and actions of the playsets and they're already keen to hit the stores to collect more of the miniature vehicles in the range. We think these playsets offer great value for money and like all Tonka toys we've encountered to date, they're well made too.

I was a bit of a Tomboy growing up, and while my Sister would play with Barbie Dolls, I'd be with the boy up the road, playing with his Tonka Trucks....My dream was always to drive those massive trucks used in the mining pits....bring to life my Tonka dream. I'm sure my niece would have as much fun as I did playing with them. (Juanita Torr)

  28. Great quality, and my goodness, my little boy and girl both love anything with wheels. They'd hyperventilate for these!

  29. My brother had a big, metal Tonka truck and I so badly wanted one! He rarely let me play with it (I still remind him now!) When I first found out I was pregnant, one of the first things I bought was a Tonka truck. 18 years and 3 kids later it's still going strong, and I love that it's the one toy my 6 year old still has that was his sibling's...and he let's me play with it ;) Kylie Embury

  30. I can remember my son 29 years ago playing in the dirt with his dads steel Tonka Trucks, both a fairing well

  31. Ooh I loved Tonka Trucks when I was little. My absolute favourite was the little dump truck. Mum could leave me in the sandpit for hours and I'd be happy as a lark shifting the sand in my little Tonka dump truck so my sister could build her whatever it was, lol! Thanks Dianne Kitson

  32. I have an active little boy who loves all things with wheels! On car trips, we get a regular running commentary from the back seat about everything we pass, especially trains and diggers. I'd love a set of Tonka trucks to expand his imaginative and construction play at home! - Alison.
