Racing Toy Engages Kids in Active Play

Turn on Race Along Chuck and the truck bursts to life, doing wheelies and exclaiming "yippee" and "vroom vroom." The truck begs you to put it in game mode, which is easily accomplished by pressing the cab lights. Raising the truck's dump bed or placing an object in it also activates the interactive features. Parents will appreciate that the truck also includes an on/off switch for quiet play.

The included instructions give brief descriptions of each game, but it will take a while for younger children to figure out exactly what Chuck wants to do next so that they can play along.

The truck's back-heavy design makes it easy to do wheelies, but its shallow dump bed can only hold small toys. During testing, the bed's design kept toys inside, even during Chuck's sometimes hectic racing maneuvers.

Truck Works Best on Hard Surfaces

The truck's game mode works best on hard surfaces with plenty of unobstructed room to maneuver. When tested in small spaces, the truck crashed frequently, but not hard enough to damage furniture.

While the truck has sturdy, large wheels, it is not an all-terrain vehicle. During testing, this truck got stuck on grass, lost power on hills, and tripped up on uneven sidewalks.

This toy comes with batteries pre-installed, letting kids start racing as soon as it comes out of the box.

My grandson loves to laugh when he plays with chuck!

Too big for most littles to pick up, but they can push it around and stuff.

Turn it off and make the truck sounds (and other sounds) with your mouth.

I have three young children, a six year old boy, a 4 ½ year old girl, and a nearly three year old boy, all part of my crack household item testing team. I received the "Tonka Tonka Chuck Race Along Chuck" (hereafter referred to as "Chuck") and put the team to work playing with him. Before I get to the results of their efforts, let me first describe Chuck.

Chuck is a little over a foot long and tall, and is about eight inches wide. He's made of a fairly sturdy feeling plastic. On his underneath, he has a switch for "on", "off", and "try me". Chuck arrived with the switch set to "try me", so you'll need to turn it to "on" before you begin playing. He needs 3 "C" batteries, which were both included and installed.

Once he's turned on, you activate him by pressing on his cab or on the floor of his yellow truck bed, or by pushing/pulling him. He has six simple games (for example "Follow me", where Chuck rolls about 10 feet or so) and, per the product description he has over 50 phrases (while I haven't actually counted them, this seems correct). His speaker is on the bottom, near the "on-off-try me" switch, and there is no volume control, but he's not too loud. When Chuck talks, the top of his mouth, the top of his cab, and two exhaust pipes move, making him appear lifelike to a child. Ok, now on to the testing.

My six year old boy was initially excited, but lost interest fairly quickly. While Chuck has six games, they're fairly simplistic and once the novelty of the toy wore off, he went back to doing six-year old things. My little girl was also initially interested, but she's not really a toy truck kind of girl, not even when the truck talks and encourages you to play with it. That left my little boy. He is actually pretty interested in Chuck.

I gave Race Along Chuck to our four year-old for his birthday, and he got a tremendous kick out of it. He enjoyed the moving face which is amusingly done and not scary (this can not be said for all such toys). He also liked the various games and unexpected behaviors that the toy performs.

From a parent's perspective, this is a solid toy that won't break easily and has no sharp edges or corners. Though it is what we call a "noise-toy", it is not loud and thankfully comes with an off switch (again, not all such toys include this very necessary function). Race Along Chuck has no educational value, but it's meant to be a fun toy and as such, it succeeds very well. Even our older kids got a few laughs out of it.

What's not to love? My three year old niece laughed uncontrollably at Chuck's lights and voice and quick movements. It is definitely too heavy for her to lift, so she chased it around like a puppy.

The games are brief, perfect for a young child's short-attention span, and the noise and lights arrive in mercifully short spurts, so before the action becomes too annoying, it stops by itself. Yes, a mere touch starts it up again, but it doesn't produce a continuous non-stop wall of noise. Adults can hold on to their sanity.

Outside she rolled it around in the dirt and grabbed the exhaust pipes and yanked hard. No damage. The toy is cute and sturdy. It requires 4 C batteries.

We have a method for keeping my four-year-old boy in line: if he stays in bed (he never does) or finishes a meal (he never does that either) he gets a sticker. Ten stickers nets him a surprise. The only reason I can keep this is up is because I'm an Amazon reviewer. I would be more worried that a day might come when I won't have a surprise for the boy, but that would mean he actually stayed put during bedtime or ate everything on his plate. Since that's not going to happen in the foreseeable future, I can take my time.

I took a gamble with old Chuck here. I thought it might be too babyish for him, but I underestimated the power of the movie Cars. Pixar's Cars movie, you see, has rejuvenated the entire toy car industry. If you squint your eyes when you look at Chuck, the tire prints of Cars is all over it. His mouth and eyebrows move just like they do on the vehicles in Cars (my son calls Cars "Car characters" so he can distinguish between the real vehicles and the animated show, go figure). He was an immediate hit.

Chuck's pretty easy to get along with. He moves along on his own, just enough to get some attention from a boy with a short attention-span. He also likes being pushed or pulled along, and it may be my imagination but I think he can tell when he bumps into something. Chuck seems to enjoy getting beat up, a great quality in a boy's toy.

There are games that Chuck plays, but honestly the boy wasn't inclined to figure them out. This is a dump truck, so it's pretty clear what Chuck should be doing - picking up and dumping stuff, right?

Thing is, Chuck is more robot than truck. His bed is actually quite shallow. You might think that Chuck would be great outside - I mean, he's a dump truck for crying out loud! - but you'd be wrong.

Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
As a pediatric physical therapist, I am not a big fan of every toy ever becoming electronic. I believe it just enables short attention spans, and certainly it removes a lot of opportunity for imaginative play. But I am often the one asking my little patients to do something that is difficult or uncomfortable for them, so I thought I'd give Chuck a try as an inducement for my kiddos to move.

As one would imagine, he's loud and hyper - flashing lights, sudden movements, obnoxious voice. That was not a surprise. But what I did find surprising was that you cannot choose what 'game' you want to play with Chuck... he just continuously cycles through the games. He also makes sudden unexpected movements that were frightening to some of my clients. Nobody I tried Chuck with loved him; about half the kiddos liked him enough to play for a few short minutes. I went back to non-electronic play to engage my guys for a longer time.

BOTTOM LINE: Loud, sudden movements, and the games are useless extra noise. Frightening to some kids. 3-4 year olds may enjoy briefly. Upgraded from 2 to 3 stars because he does have an off switch and he has no sharp edges.
