I never had 1 of these Tonka Winnebagos as a kid but know a few who did.  How about you: have or still have 1 of these?
 
Perfect sign for a tire shop, but think I would rather invite people to a party, not a flat tire!

I never owned or even played with a Tonka toy.

It was all Hot Wheels and Match Box cars for me.

 

Interesting.  My childhood was similar, mostly HW & MB ... but, I did have some Tonka trucks ... including an orange dump truck which my Nephew plays with now.

 

 

Had a ton of Tonkas as a child, small, medium and large sized, but never the Winnebago.  Friends of mine did and I played with theirs.  I look at them from time to time at toy shows, haven't caught the desire to buy one though.

 

 

Same here ... friends had 1 that I oh-so-wished I had.  The toy shows & model shows I've been to in the last few years haven't had 1, but I would like to obtain 1 at some point.

Yup...very interesting indeed as I am reminiscing about my childhood toys...I did not have any type of dump truck or construction site toys...I did not even have sandbox pails and shovels...

I do remember hating sand, dirt and mud when I was young...maybe that has something to do with my parents not buying me Tonka Trucks.

Come to think of it...I had many types of boats that I played with also....maybe the boats replaced the Tonka Trucks for me...

Hmmm ... yeah, that might have something to do with it.  I hated dirt & mud (still do), tho I don't mind sand.  Never used the dump truck in the sandbox, tho ... heck, I don't even really remember ever taking it outside, but ... I'm sure I did.  Anyway, it was reminiscing about childhood toys that led me to create the "Monday Night Fun" theme ... to celebrate those toys of childhood. ;)
