Because Play Really is a Child's Work
Play is how children learn the skills they will use as they grow. Children learn through play and these toys are realistic work play.
Kids fall in love with the Tonka work vehicles because they have the opportunity to see and do what dad does at his job.
Just like dad they can go to work, dig up sand, and pile it into the back of their dump truck. Kids plow roads and dig holes with their metal vehicles. They drive trucks loaded with tiny logs to imaginary mills and deliver loads of milk and coke bottles to their make believe neighborhood businesses.
Built for the rugged wear and tear that kids put their toys through these are vehicles that stand up to the hard work a child puts them through. The Tonka construction toys are built of steel and plastic construction. Built tough to last through all the play that a kid can throw at them.

My children are lucky as we still have our old Tonka toys from the 70's and 80's to pass down to them. Despite a lot of rough play these durable vehicles are still rolling today. Older toys are now collectables and newer models are just as popular with young kids today as they were with kids way back in the 1940s.
Tonka's reputation has only improved with age. It is a company brand name that people trust to produce well built toys. If you spot any of these old toys at garage sales or the thrift stores they are certainly worth picking up. Whether you want them for play or for display they are distinctive toys that open conversations and bring back fond memories.
Play is a Child's Work it's How a Kid Learns
Play is one of the most important things that kids can do in their day. When they are playing school, toy trucks, drawing, or play cooking they are really investigating how to do these things.
Not only does play exercise the body and the mind but it also helps teach kids a variety of other skills as well. When children play they are developing coordination skills, increase their cognitive abilities, discover their interests, and learn practices which they will use in the future.
Play is important and kids should have plenty of time to participate in it each day. A little dirt is also fun on a grown ups hands too, so go ahead and take some time to play with your kids today.
