I love setting up small world play and it’s great for keeping little people busy when it’s raining outside. This week we collected bags and bags of conkers, which are perfect for creating small world play trays. I filled a tray with some of our conker collection and then added a few dried chickpeas to create a rocky terrain, all ready for the latest Diecast Metal Tonka Toys, which are now available at Asda.
Tonka Diecast Monster Trucks
We were sent a fantastic selection of Tonka toys to celebrate the arrival of Diecast Metal Tonka Toys at Asda. You’ll find a great range of Tonka Toys in selected Asda stores and some stores have a 25% Rollback promotion on Tonka Toys up until 7th October 2018 (in-store only)! One of our favourite Tonka Toys for driving through the conker and chickpea play tray is the Tonka Diecast Monster Truck.
The monster wheels of the diecast metal Tonka toys easily ride over obstacles and they’re a great size for younger children (3years+) to handle. The chickpeas and the conkers don’t stay in the tray but they are easy to tidy up, they’re so tactile and they make a great crunching sound. This small world play tray is so inviting and even more exciting with the addition of the diecast metal Tonka toys – I know that this is going to be a real favourite for keeping little ones busy in our house this winter.
Tonka Tinys Three Pack
From Monster Trucks to Tinys… Tonka also make miniature vehicles for children 5 years+. The Tonka Tinys are available in a pack of three, with two of the vehicles on display and a third which is a surprise! The Tonka Tinys are made from plastic and they’re incredibly detailed given their miniature size. They’re the perfect pocket toy and Mr 7 and Mr 3 are hoping to add to their collection!
Tonka Tinys Mini Playset
Another real favourite from the range is the Tonka Tinys Mini Playset. We have the Tonka Tinys Tune-Up Garage which is a really cute little garage with doors that lift up, a vehicle lift that you can slide up and down and a launching conveyer belt which is operated by a small lever.
The miniature world is great for playing with the Tonka Tinys cars and it comes with a Tonka Tinys truck. The Tonka Tinys Mini Playsets are a great idea and can easily be packed up to take anywhere. I’m now on the look-out for the Blast and Dash Quarry and Car Crush Escape Mini Playsets, to add to our collection.
Tonka Diecast Big Rigs
The Tonka Diecast Big Rigs are plastic and metal Tonka toys that are great for children aged 3 years old and above. The logs on the transporter are loose, so you can un-load and re-load the cargo. The trucks are tough and sturdy, as you would expect from Tonka. The Log Transporter is our top pick: the transporter drives along our wooden floors smoothly and the logs add more opportunities for play.
You’ll find a great range of Tonka Toys in selected Asda stores and some stores have a 25% Rollback promotion on Tonka Toys up until 7th October 2018 (in-store only). There are also some Tonka Toys available online to order now!
