10 Top Toy Trucks 2016 Reviews

Tonka Toughest Mighty Dump Truck

best toy truck

We are not surprised to see the Tonka steel dump truck make it as the best selling toy truck for this year too. This is the current version of the age old Tonka dump truck. Many of our readers themselves and their parents have played with Tonka dump truck and now they want their kids to play with it. Tonka doesn’t disappoint this third generation of Tonka toy truck fans. We wish more toys were made in this fashion. It is a high quality, well made dump truck and not the cheap plastic like so many toys seem to be. This is one of the few toy trucks we can recommend without any reservation.

  • Lift tailgate opens and the body inclines to dump the contents.
  • Driver’s cabin can be tilted and view the engine block
  • Folding outside mirrors
  • Soft rubber tires with real thread

No need to describe its looks and functions. Recommended only for 3 years and old, due to small parts and pieces.
