Smokey The Fire Truck by Matchbox

Updated on April 28, 2012

Talking toy trucks are all the rage these days with kids ages 3-8. When the commercials come on tv for Smokey the Fire Truck, my 4 year old will stop what he is doing even if he is deep into a craft at the table and run over to watch the ad.

Why do children like toys that talk and move and interact? The reason is because they seem a little more real to your child and especially for those children who are without siblings, having talking toys can help them feel as if they have friends or brothers and sisters to play with.

When you buy these types if toys for your little ones, it encourages them to express their imaginations and improves their social skills. They can learn early mechanics and enhance all kinds of cognitive skills.

      Pamela99, I have 2 different families. I have a grown boy who is almost 20 and the trucks and toys he had to play with were nowhere near as fun. He was saying himself now that he wishes he had had something as fun and that toys have become so much cooler now. I agree. I am a grown woman and love toys! I could spend as much time in a toy shop as I could shopping for clothes. lol.

      thank you for your comment and I hope others will be able to enjoy this product as well.

      I don't think I could even add up the hours my 3 boys played with small cars and trucks when they were young. The fire truck looks like a winner!
