Looks great

I had the whole set of early 80s Tonka toys. All metal. My mom threw them away when my grandparents passed away. I was really upset.

You want to see some really cool toys go to brudertoys.com , them click on international, when the sight opens choose Britain . these toys are insanely detailed , and though not a Tonka or nearly as tough, they are pretty rugged , my nefews have a bunch of them. The dump trucks go well with the mighty loader, as they are sized correctly.

The Bruder toys are made in Germany I think,,,i saw some in a toy store in Kelowna BC last week,,,they do have more detailed things that could obviously get broken off over the years.  A little research will show you how to identify the older tonkas..there is one "newer tonk a in my fleet.
