Our mission at Tough Toys is to get you the best 4wd and touring accessories at the best price, so we’re always looking for great gear to add to our range. Sometimes we don’t find anything that’s exactly right, though, so we develop our own stuff instead. Other times we want to offer an affordable but top quality alternative. That’s why you’ll find a lot of our own Tough Toys gear on the site. Anything with that label has been designed by 4wd enthusiasts – that’s us – so you know you can rely on it to get the job done.
One area we’ve put a lot of attention into is recovery gear. We stock a lot of fantastic kit from specialists like Mean Mother, but we also have our own range of stuff for getting you out of any sticky spots. Our snatch straps, shackles and dampers are all top quality equipment at prices you’ll struggle to beat. We’ve also put together our own 1,000kg recovery kit that contains everything you need to haul yourself out.
Recovery gear gets dirty, so to keep it from making a mess inside your wagon try one of our Tough gear bags. The biggest gear bag you’ll find, this just straps to your spare wheel and keeps all that wet, muddy stuff safely outside. It can be locked on for better security, and it’s robust enough to survive anything you send its way. Of course there are other kinds of mess you can get inside too, especially if you have kids, so our seat organisers might be what you’re looking for. These clip to the back of your seats and provide loads of pockets to help keep things tidy and easy to get at. They’re great for safety, too – no more loose gear flying around every time you hit a bump on the track.
Our flagship products have to be our awnings. This is where we really pulled the stops out to give you the best you’ll find anywhere. We know what a great bit of gear a decent awning is when you’re camping; it’s easy to set up, gives you masses of space and can take a whole load of accessories like mozzie nets and tents. Well, we decided that if a big awning is good, a bigger awning has to be even better. We’ve designed some absolutely huge side awnings, all the way up to 2.5x3 metres, and a spacious rear-mounted model as well. They’re as tough as they are big, too, with sturdy twist-lock poles, double reinforced corners and solid mounts. The heavy duty canvas is backed with reflective fabric to block UV radiation and reflect heat away, leaving you relaxing in cool shade beneath. You won’t be left sitting in the dark when the sun goes down though, because we’ve come up with an innovative LED lighting system mounted right on the frame – just plug it in to your vehicle socket and you have perfect lighting. There’s no need to worry about it attracting bugs either because we have tents and nets to fit our whole awning range.
You’ll find a bunch of other Tough Toys products in our online store, and they all have one thing in common – they’re designed by people who really know what you need in the bush. They’re also great value, because we want as many people to get the benefit of them as possible. Everything we sell has been thoroughly tested, but if you see our own logo on it you can be sure it’s among the best gear you’ll find.
