Tonka trucks are utterly terrific


As an outfit that embraces all things digital, AR, VR and such it still thrills us to the bone when nostalgia knocks, and knock hard it has this week. So Funrise and Hasbro are collaborating to breathe new life into the Tonka range of toys, there’ll be Tonka Power Movers, Tonka Tinys, sound-infused, play sets, carry-cases and more. The only thing |I actually still own from those heady 80’s days, apart from a 45rpm Adam and the Ants “Prince Charming” is this rather spanking Tonka truck – these days on my desk and used as a general holder of stuff.
