Tonka began manufacturing its indestructible pressed steel toys shortly after WWII in 1947. Those solid steel toys were manufactured that way right up into the 1980s but eventually steel gave way to plastic and today Tonka toys are entirely plastic.
The inspiration behind our 1960s Tonka No. 530 Camper Art Print
I grew up playing with many Tonka toys. Back then I appreciated them for their indestructibility. Today I connect with them as a fun memory and also appreciate them as industrial works of art. Their craftsmanship is hard to resist.
Collecting toys is no longer just for kids. In fact, vintage pressed steel toys like this Tonka No. 530 Camper from the 1960s are a prized find to many collectors and this print will make a great addition to any collector of vintage-inspired art.
