Vintage Toy Art Print: 1970s Tonka T9 Bulldozer

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 1970s Tonka T9 Bulldozer 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 1970s Tonka T9 Bulldozer are a prized-find for many collectors and this print will make a great addition to any collector of vintage-inspired art.
