An Interactive Garbage Truck that Talks, Sings, Eats, and Dumps
Interactive Stinky is an articulated garbage truck that can be transformed into a tough, yet loveable friend. His moveable, white driver's cab turns like a head, and his front wheels rear up--either manually or in response to different sensory buttons.

Stinky has a big, bold, and entertaining personality that he expresses with over 90 phrases and songs. Sometimes he's all business, and will let you know that the cleaning crew is coming through. Other times he's in the mood to sing, exercise, or solicit high fives. Boys who love interactive toys will find a fun new friend in Stinky. This rough-and-tumble vehicle features plenty of moving parts that define his distinct personality.

Feisty Stinky Features Many Modes of Play
Kids can turn Stinky off and play with him manually, just like a regular toy vehicle, but his five interactive modes are where the fun is at. When he's pushed and pulled in his vehicle position, he'll turn his head-like cab side to side and blink his headlights. To have Stinky speak, push or pull his smokestack, lift his rear door, or poke his belly button.

Stinky's not shy about telling you he's hungry. The grille of his cab functions as a mouth in which you can feed small items that'll be dumped out later. Even Stinky's bright green trash compartment operates like the real thing--drop small items into the top, and he'll dump it out of his rear door when you pull on his smoke stack.

Who would've thought that a stinky garbage truck could sing? Push the button on his smoke stack repeatedly, and he'll rear up to dance and belt out a funny tune. If Stinky is left alone for too long he'll fall asleep; press his smoke stack to rouse him awake. He comes with four C batteries that are for demo purposes only, so you'll need to replace them with fresh batteries before handing him over to the kids.

Matchbox Big Rig Buddies DVD Included
This DVD includes two exciting episodes featuring Stinky, a young boy named Felix, and the rest of the Big Rig Crew. Together, they'll take on challenges and fun adventures that impress teamwork, friendship, and heroism.

What's in the Box
Stinky the Garbage Truck with four C demonstration batteries, Big Rig Buddies DVD, and instructions.

I wasn't sure about oredering Stinky unitl I saw You.Tube video of him. Stinkty came and my son loved him. It took him a day to learn all of Stinky's functions but he was aving fun with him right out of the box. Stinky performs everything as demonstrated. I did find one drawback. It would have been nice if the Matchbox have included a volume control in the design- Stinky is loud. I couldn't find anyway to muffle him but that is the only drawback. One other thing you should know is in the manufacturers directions it advises that Stinky not be played wit outside as dirt, sand and wter can cause him to malfunction so if you child takes him in the sandbox- he isn;t going to work and that's a lot of money to pay for a fancy Tonka toy. I think Matchbox shuld tell you that up front.

All said my four year old really seems to like playing with him. Amazon's price with free delvery was competitive with anything I've seen in stores and he is way cheaper than Big Foot who to me doesn't really do much of anything.

My 2 1/2 year old son loves that it eats the cars and poops them out. While it does not have much educational value, it does make him less nervouse about pooping now that he is potty training since it poops too.

Stinky is very fun, and after you change out the trial batteries to your own batteries, he performs all the functions on the box. He's very cute and funny (with one rude noise) and kids love him. Even big kids think he is hilarious.

Stinky is LOUD LOUD LOUD. There is no volume control on this toy. There is no escaping his loudness. Heads up, Mom.

This robot toy in the form of a garbage truck, and with the super-attractive name of Stinky, isn't cheap, but he makes you (esp. if you're a male) fall in love with him in no time. He talks, sings, tells jokes, and is just plain funny. His front fender drops like a jaw which, while nothing new, makes him seem really comic. I saw this at my local TRU and, despite being unemployed, I just couldn't help but buy it, for myself! (I did have a $15 coupon to help me make up my mind quick.) For men and boys of all ages, I highly recommend this loveable companion!

Wow, does my wife hate me for buying this for my 3 year old because it's like having a drunk uncle who starts fights with you at the dinner table. It's loud, jerky, and you can't understand a word he says - then, it goes to sleep. My son gapes at this toy leaping back and forth from amusement to total abject fear. Not only does it flip out from time to time the voice chip sounds like the announcements on a NY City subway system - you don't know where it's going or what it's saying. But the true horror is not the toy - it is the terrible dvd that came with it featuring a young boy whose father encourages him to play in a dangerous junk yard. Somehow, surrounded by rusty and jagged metal the boy learns a lesson about life, friendship, and sleepovers. Hopefully he has gotten his tetanus booster because if anyone is going to get lockjaw it's little Timmy. Thanks Dad! But the most frustrating thing is that this toy has so much potential. It's a cool little robot and it can do a lot of fun things. It's just painfully annoying.

This toy is awesome, I gave it a friends 2 year old son for his birthday, you would think this was the only toy he had....He carried it all over the yard and all day all he would say is garbage truck garbage truck..His parents drove home and he had to have it in his car seat all the way home... His mom put him to bed and he wanted it in the bed. The grown ups had as much fun as the he did. This is a little boys dream. Expensive but worth it...Hmm now what will I do for Christmas...LOL

Stinky is an interactive truck like Matchbox Smokey The Fire Truck, both of which we have. Stinky sings, speaks and you can feed him Matchbox cars which he will dump out the back. He says "Yum, yum, feed me". Smokey and Stinky both are really cool but Stinky is our favorite.

We got Stinky the Garbage Truck for my 3.5 year old for Christmas last year. He and his 7.5 y.o. sister immediately started playing with him, and still to this day continue to play with him off and on. Matchbox/HotWheels cars work PERFECTLY for when he says FEED ME!

Anyone who complains you can't understand him, I have a solution for you. Q-Tips, or Hearing Aids. It is NOT difficult to figure out what he's saying once you've listened to it a few times.

Some of his sayings are on the crude-ish side, but still nothing you wouldn't hear in a G rated movie. Whatever... it's a talking garbage truck. It should burp and fart.

Despite the fact that it seems like it might not be durable, it's designed pretty well. It IS a matchbox product and they've been building durable kids toys forever.
