Early Learning software
With Tonka Garage, grease monkeys of all ages finally get the opportunity to work at a full-service garage, designing, building and customizing their own vehicles, without ever getting dirty! This fun program allows kids to explore the workings of a virtual service station, earn "Cool Tool" rewards, and eventually become Master Mechanics and part owners of the garage.
Tonka Garage Headquarters is bustling with activity. Many unique areas provide the user with realistic situations to pursue. The Office is where jobs are posted, vehicles are designed, decals are made, and Cool Tools are stored. At the Junkyard, the user creates metal from old vehicles that is crushed, melted and subsequently reused. Creations are painted and detailed at Paint Shop and completed masterpieces are displayed in the Showroom for all to admire.
Of course, turning out good-looking cars and trucks is only part of the garage owner's duties. Tonka Headquarters also includes a Repair Shop, where the body-work, and wheel and brake adjustment is completed. Vehicles can also be performance and crash-tested with the help of pals Crash Test Tony and his assistant Knocks.
Finally, the user can choose to join Chad, the Gas Station attendant, as he pumps gas, adds oil and changes fluids for the thankful Tonka Town population.
