Holiday Gift Guide: Matchbox Smokey The Fire Truck {review}

,


I hear it all the time. "When I grow up, mommy, I want to be a FIRE FIGHTER!" That's what Alex says whenever he sees anything to do with firemen. That's why this new toy from Matchbox is #1 on his Christmas list this year. 

Smokey The Fire Truck is an interactive toy that lights up, talks, and even sings and dances as children play. He comes with aqua-colored balls that represent water blasts and will say that he's thirsty so the child knows when to use them.

Is it any wonder my little fireman wants this under the tree? {Shhhh. Don't tell him he'll find it on Christmas morning.}

Mattel was generous enough to send this over and I've found time to check it out for myself. From a mom's perspective, I'm very impressed with this toy. There are no small pieces for me to worry about my son losing or my daughter putting in her mouth and the toy is constructed in such a way that I know it's going to be able to keep up with him as he plays. Alex is going to go bananas over this toy and I'll be happy knowing that it's safe and durable.

Want to see the toy in action? Visit the Matchbox website and view the video.

Here are some specifics on the toy's price and age range for you.

ARP:   $59.99                       
Ages:  3+ 
I think this will be pretty popular this year! Add it to your list if you have a little firefighter in your home too!
