I don’t know why I had the sudden urge to hop onto Ebay and look for a vintage Tonka Grader toy. Maybe it was the sudden longing for a cherished childhood memory. I actually found one that resembled the toy I had when I was growing up in the late 70’s. I initially asked for an Excavator toy because I was so much into construction toys at that time. When my mom came home she brought with her the Tonka Grader toy instead because she couldn’t find an excavator.
