Bryson received the Matchbox Smokey the Fire Truck for his third birthday. Smokey was an immediate hit- both with Bryson and his 7 year old cousin.
Smokey is a freewheeling friend with movable hoses that spray water mist and expandable ladders and sensors that respond to a child’s movements. Smokey is a real working fire truck brought to life. This interactive buddy talks, tells jokes, eats, exercises and sings. Kids will love interacting with their new friend.
Bryson’s favorite mode is when Smokey is fighting fires and shooting water canons. He also likes to raise him up and down until he starts singing and dancing. Smokey knows how to say over 95 phrases and when he’s awake, he talks almost constantly. He can also sing 4 different songs. You can raise him up to use him in character mode or lower him to use him as a truck. He requires 4 C batteries which are included.
I personally would not pay the regular price of $59.99, but Smokey goes on sale quite often. I have no doubts that any kid will think he is probably the coolest fire truck ever. From a parent stand point, he can certainly be annoying, but the kids love him!
Our family received Smokey to facilitate this post. All opinions expressed remain my own, as always.
