I've had these little plastic construction vehicles for as long as I can remember. I don't recall the details of how I acquired them, but I suspect they were birthday party favors. My set included a steam roller, dump truck, power shovel, forklift, and bulldozer.
I played with them when I was quite young, and then in my high school days I displayed the set in a shadow box that hung on my bedroom wall. Today, they live in a special wooden box dedicated to such trinkets.
