Mattel isn’t just about Barbie dolls anymore. The world’s largest toy company is also churning out, well, garbage trucks. Toy trucks with a spunky sense of humor and lots of attitude, that is.
Matchbox Stinky the Garbage Truck is the vehicle of the year.
If there’s one toy you should be considering buying this Christmas season, Matchbox Stinky should be on your list. It’s entertaining, highly-interactive, and has over 90 phrases and sounds up his sleeve.
Who would have known that garbage trucks harbored an innate sense of fun too?
Think of a regular garbage vehicle, all rough and gritty exterior, stinky too, no-nonsense, and boring, and then turn it into one audacious talking and dancing truck that throws hilarious jokes right and left and you got yourself a highly-comedic robotic toy. It’s like Oscar the Grouch reincarnated as a vehicle. Underneath all that hard exterior is a charming, mushy center that will tickle your funny bones.
Matchbox Stinky the Garbage Truck isn’t just for the pre-school set kids though. Granted the target audience is kids three and up, but even adults will appreciate its brand of humor and wacky antics. Never a dull moment indeed. Stinky’s various touch sensor points sends him instantly standing up, driving around, dancing and even exercising in delight, all the while muttering, singing, or cracking a joke. Actually, the rule of thumb is always play with Stinky, or he’ll sleep.
Of course, being a garbage vehicle, Matchbox Stinky likes to eat. Not garbage though, but cars. Just pop a car into his gaping mouth and he’ll devour it with gusto. But he’ll regurgitate it back though, and you can just take that tiny morsel of a car out again through the back hutch. (Yes, it even has a belly sensor.)
Needless to say, Matchbox Stinky the Garbage Truck is perpetually hungry, and always needs his fix, or you’ll definitely see him in a tantrum and hear him complain. (Don’t worry, he’ll let you know when his appetite needs something.) Actually, Stinky is his name, and gobbling garbage is his game, so that should give you a clue.
With Matchbox Stinky, there’s no reason anymore for garbage trucks (and other vehicles for that matter) to be boring. For a supposed garbage truck, Stinky has that lovable personality full of surprises.
Your kid will surely have fun with this quirky truck slash buddy brought to life. You might be saying, so what?, it’s just an over-priced dancing fast-talking robotic truck. How do I know if it’s worth it? Well, Stinky the Truck happens to be a really cool toy to play with. It lets your child learn how to be “in tune” with a friend, even a robotic toy one.
Plus it’s one hilarious cute toy to begin with.
So what have people been saying about Stinky so far? One customer says it’s “Awwwwesome”. Another says it’s “HILARIOUS AND JUST TOOOO MUCH FUN.” (Caps Lock her own). And take note, this customer brought Stinky the Garbage Truck for her 35-year-old brother as a birthday gift. Of course, she also gave one to her daughter.
When it comes to toys (especially expensive toys equipped with technology), apparently people look for durability. Fortunately, Matchbox Stinky the Garbage Truck is one hardy toy that’s easy to control and operate, well-constructed, and most important of all, fun. And yes, batteries are included.
