Tonka Trucks

Just found out in Motor that Tonka have sold 250 Million Yellow trucks and heavy machinery.

I regrete giving mine away as i had the Original Tonka Truck made in the US (was a 4x4 Jeep) and you can take the wheels off.
Trust me it was blooody strong. I swear they don't build toys like they used to.

Anyone else owned the Original Tonka Truck???/

Fark yeh! Used to love them! I had a bulldozer, a low loader truck, a dump truck and a few others that I can't remember. I remember going through an "Army" phase when I was obsessed by everything millitary and I painted them up in camoflouge colours.

My other favourite toys when I was a kid was a Corgi Batmobile, I was devasted when I lost it down the drain. I remember bawling my eyes out because of this and pleading with Mum to buy another one but she never did. This is the reason I'm the sick and twisted person I am today!

Also there were these car things called SSP Racers. A plastic car thing with a toothed nylon cable thing you fed through the middle of the car to a cogged wheel and then you pull the cable (like starting a lawnmower) and set the thing on the ground and it races off. Except when you point it into the BBQ fire...

I had those as well, Lego kicks ass, Matchbox cars.
Another toy i liked which wasn't widely known was this thing called Link Kits contain a heap of links and connectors and you can make cubes etc etc.

With model cars and RC cars i still play with them to this day. :s2: :s2: :s2:
Yeah yeah i'm still abit of a kid.

That supercar rocks - might have to get me one too.

All my old lego is at my mums house where she is keeping it for when I have kids (fat chance) - so I guess it will go to my nephew.

Woow, just looked at that supercar Lego, that is friggin awesome, not to mention the mods that can done. Hours of fun i say.

I had a technic lego F1 car from way back about the same size. That had steering, removable cowling engine exhaust etc.
I've since modified it to my own custom racer model and still got it sitting on my shelf at home.
