Toys, Toys and more Toys!

Filed under: Item of the Day — Jason Onerheim @ 12:01 am

Toys, Toys and more Toys!

This weekend the highly anticipated (by kids and adults alike) Toys of the ’50s, ’60s and ’70s exhibit opens to the public!

Item of the Day is very excited about this show and today we present a preview of one of the collection items on display (and an icon of Minnesota toy manufacture) a Tonka Toys Livestock Truck. It was made sometime in the 1950s by Tonka Toys, of Mound, Minnesota and features the classic strong metal construction.

For more information or to purchase a photograph of this item, view this truck in our collections database.
