Tonka toys: I love dirt and rocks and sand and mud and muck. I love my Tonka--man, I love my truck

Tonka Trucks - a  little bit of history:

"Tonka toy trucks were created by Mound Metalcraft Company in 1947 in a schoolhouse basement near Lake Minnetonka. An immediate success, the half dozen employees produced 37,000 toy trucks that first year. Since then, entire generations of children have grown up with Tonka trucks."
