TONKA’S “RACE LIKE TODD ROMANO” TOYS
After creating, building and ultimately selling DragonFire Racing
(and driving UTV evolution), Todd Romano created the Tonka Off-Road Program in 2011, and built a new empire marketing on having
won SCORE Baja races six times. Tonka Todd replica toys have
been a huge success with three lines of toys—Die Cast, Collectors’
Edition, and Lights and Sounds—and these lines are sold in big-box stores. Not only is the international race team and television
coverage of Baja integral to the Tonka Off-Road Program, Hasbro,
Tonka and Tonka Todd bring new awareness of our sport to the
consumer, retailer and sponsor levels.
Tonka also has replicas of Todd’s #133 Unlimited buggy, and
Romano has won the SCORE Baja 250, 500 and 1000. We hope
that replicas of his KOH #1933 Wildcat X (see page 66) and RZR
XP 4 1000 pre-runner are additions to the Tonka Off-Road Program.
Generations of kids have grown up playing with
Tonka fire trucks, ambulances and dump trucks,
so why not inspire future generations to aspire to
be Trophy Truck racers? “Tonka” Todd Romano and
Finish Line Marketing are out to do just that with
the Tonka Off-Road Program. This Lights and Sounds
Trophy Truck has working suspension, lights and
three sound clips.
XP- 4 pre-runner
to look like his
#33 trick truck
Tonka toys. It
has more than
the Parker 425
and King of the
Hammers on it,
and we’ll feature
it next month.
