Japanese Tiny Tonka Crane

This Tiny Tonka Orange Crane is considered by many collector’s to be one of the rarest of Tiny Tonka. All I know is that it was produced in Japan. If anyone has any info on this collectible let me know. Thanks to Scott for sending me this.

  1. These were also made for the Japan market (I have two with Japanese boxes), but with a P&H sticker on the crane arm instead of the Tonka sticker (Tonka stickers still on cab doors).

    • Giancarlo, I have a blue Wrecker that I assume was built in Japan. It has a tandem axle and it also has the “rear view mirror” inside of the cab. It is clearly a Tonka. It has Tonka stamped on the frame and it also bares the Tonka stickers. I bought it in Manila, Philippines in 2010 and have never seen another like it.

    • Giancarlo do you have an email address i can send a picture to from the looks of the pictures of Japanese tonka’s you have shared here i thought you would be the person to ask about a piece i have my email is driddick@rogers,com Thanks Doug

  3. Hi all,

    I have a Tiny Tonka Crane P&H Grabber Excavator, it has some age to it. Trying date/ identify it. I have seen others similar but whats interesting about mine the wheels are plastic not / rubber track. I can only find examples with rubber track.

    If anyone has any further info to share – Cheers.
