Smokey The Talking Fire Truck Review | Matchbox Smokey The Fire Truck
Smokey the Talking Fire Truck is a new addition to Mattel’s Big Rig Buddies toys. Much like Stinky the Garbage truck from 2010, the Matchbox Smokey Truck is a singing, water ball throwing and interactive fire truck for boys three and over.
One of the fun features Smokey includes is a full face. He sports windshield eyes, a bumper mouth that curves and moves up and down, blue headlight cheeks, and the front grill nose that crinkles as he talks. These all combine to make interaction more fun. He has 6 extra big wheels, 2 of which can rise up, giving him the ability to stand on his back four tires.
Smokey also says silly things, makes animal noises, and even has firetruck ‘gas’ which kids of course will love!
Smokey The Talking Truck With 3 Ways to Play
When Smokey is on all 6 wheels, he is a firetruck with lights and sounds. He can be rolled around and played with in this mode as a firetruck that will shout out phrases and move his front wheels out like arms.
His headlights and mouth will move as he’s played with. He senses movement with the sensors in his tires, so he will interact as a child get’s near.
MatchBox Smokey Fire Engine Singing & Dancing
If your child moves the lever on his side half way to lift him up onto four wheels, he appears to have arms and goes into singing and dancing mode.
With his mouth open, songs playing and his front tires moving around like arms, he is really quite a site. This mode randomly picks from a selection of four different songs, which play in short bursts.
Talking Smokey with Water Cannons
Now, moving the lever all the way down, Smokey the Taking Fire Truck is ready to put out fires with the water cannon. He will talk in positive phrases and say he’s thirsty as your child loads the cannons and pulls the lever to shoot. There are 3 water ball cannon’s included, and they can all be loaded at one time. They do not use real water.
After the cannons are shot out, Smokey may do a victory dance and sing.
