I think there is a reason Tonka is so successful and it has to do with the quality of the toys they make. Again and again I am impressed with the toy trucks that are added to our fleet. The Grader is no exception.
The Tonka Grader is sturdy. The blade moves up (so it doesn't gauge holes in your lawn) and down (to plow sand). It also makes awesome tracks in the sand because it is easy to push and has great wheels. The hardware that holds the blade is simple and solid. Like all our Tonka "Retro Classic" steel trucks, this thing is ready for the wear and tear of serious play.
If you are trying to decide what blade might be a great addition to your child's construction site team, I say skip the Tonka Bulldozer (a fine toy but hard to maneuver with track wheels and the blade down) and go for the Grader instead!
p.s. For those of you who don't know what a Grader is, I've embedded the Twenty Trucks song and video below...
