I don't remember "Stony" the soldier. Looks like he was trying to move in on G.I. Joe territory.

Those Tonka toys guaranteed hours of fun in the sandbox.

OMG How I remember these Rod. I was around 6 or 7 years old then. That brings back such great memories for me. If you only knew. I do hope that you post more photos.

You have made my day!!!

One more thing, I remember way back when Sears came out with what I thought was a huge catalog filled with everything a person could want.

This sure brings the past back to life for me thats for sure!!

Half the houses on my street (including mine) are "Sears Houses"... there are about two or three basic designs, but they generally all look alike... one of the "features" of a Sears home was a grassy strip down the middle of the driveway... I HATE that *%@#*$! thing! Show of hands... who else has to "mow" their driveway in the summer? Apparently, that was a very popular thing to do back in the beginning of the 20th Century...

My younger brother had that Tonka dump truck with a real working hydraulic lift... I think it's still in my dad's basement somewhere... those things were virtually indestructible..!

Yeah the only plastic my Tonkas had in the 70s were the wheels and they were thick.
We broke so many things with those trucks - they were tough!
Now ..... - well whats the point - might as well make paper airplanes ....
