My three year old son is really into trucks and cars this year. He seems like Santa Claus knew what to bring him at both of his grandparents' houses this year. Earlier in the month Santa Claus brought Dave the Tonka Mighty Loader which was a big hit with him. Christmas Day we spent the holidays with my husband's family. Once again Santa Claus brought him the perfect gift, a Tonka Mighty Dump Truck. Santa didn't even bother to wrap the Dump Truck because he knew that Dave would have more of a surprise when he discovered it on the floor next to his other presents.

I don't think Dave saw the truck at first because the load of presents caught his eye first. Finally he saw the dump truck. "Is this dump truck for me," he exclaimed out of excitement? The first day he only played with Tonka Mighty Dump Truck for a few minutes but I figured this was because there were so many presents from the grandparents, aunts, and uncles that he didn't know what he had.
The real test came when we got home. Would Dave play with his Tonka Mighty Dump Truck or would it end up another toy on the shelf? Wednesday morning when Dave got up he immediately went to his Tonka Dump Truck. He asked me where his Tonka Mighty Loader was. I pointed to it over by the shelf of toys in the living room. Once again the Tonka twins are a big hit again. Every day he has played with the Tonka Mighty Dump Truck and the Mighty Loader. He loves to put the legos in the back of the dump truck and drive them around like they are dirt or rocks going to a construction site.
What do I like about the Tonka Mighty Dump Truck? Like I said in my review about the Tonka Mighty Loader Tonka has a good reputation for being strong, reliable, long lasting toys. Tonka has been around a long time. I don't know exactly how many years but I know that my husband played with Tonka Trucks and he is 33 years old. Tonka also creates many toys that go together with one another and create an atmosphere of fun, imaginative play.
What my son likes about the Tonka Mighty Dump Truck? Dave likes the realistic looking dump truck because it looks like the real thing. It moves smoothly along the carpet which is a big plus with him. Dave tends to get frustrated if he can not get toys to move freely along the carpet.
The Tonka Mighty Dump Truck is useful in many situations. It is a wonderful toy for both indoors and outdoors. Right now the Tonka trucks are staying indoor until it gets a little warmer and drier.
