With an appetite for garbage, Stinky asks children to, “Feed me!” and, “Give me more!” Feed him matchbox cars or other small items and he really comes to life!

Kids ages 3 and up will fall in love with Stinky the Garbage Truck and his fun & feisty personality not to mention his over 90 clever phrases and sounds. Children also love the fact that Stinky the Truck has oversized and easy to move articulated parts that allow movement of Stinky’s cab, wheels and body. In addition to Stinky’s moving parts, he also has sensory points located at various locations that trigger various phrases, sounds and movements.

Matchbox Stinky Garbage Truck

Stinky the Garbage Truck has 5 interactive modes of play which kids love, but moms and dads will appreciate the fact that Stinky can be turned off and played with just like any normal toy vehicle. Pushing or pulling Stinky will trigger his head-like cab to turn and headlights to blink. Kids will love the ability to make Stinky the truck speak by triggering a number of sensors in the smoke stack, rear door and vehicle bottom.

Feeding Stinky the Garbage Truck

The real fun begins when Stinky gets hungry. Stinky the Garbage Truck is 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.

He also functions just like a real garbage truck. Just drop items into the top compartment and Stinky will expel them out of the rear door just by pulling on his smoke stack. When he dumps the toys from his garbage holder, he will make a rather funny sound and say “Excuse Me!”. Kids absolutely love making Stinky do this and they will get hours of fun out of making him perform this silly action.

Stinky the Truck Dances Too

Stinky the Truck also dances and sings just by pushing or pulling his smoke stack. He will raise up on two wheels and start to sing a song and invite kids to join-in. A nice feature Matchbox got right is that if you leave Stinky alone too long, he will turn himself off and go to sleep. Once it is time to play again, just press his smoke stack and he wakes right up!

Each Matchbox Stinky the Garbage Truck comes with a Matchbox Big Rig Buddies DVD featuring Stinky the garbage Truck and the rest of his Big Rig Buddies gang. Stinky also comes with 4 C batteries, but we recommend having a back-up set ready as these are only for demo purposes and may not last long.

Stinky Toy Garbage Truck Fun
If you are looking for a funny, lovable and all around safe interactive toy for kids ages 3 and up, you can’t go wrong with Stinky the Truck. He’s built for play, and therefore is durable enough to take the rough play that can be common at this age group.

Matchbox Big Rig Buddies DVD Included

The bonus DVD is nice as well and is a great companion to this toy. There is no doubt that children will want to watch the DVD while playing with Stinky the Garbage Truck. The DVD includes all the Matchbox Big Rig Buddies including the popular Rocky the Robot Truck.

Stinky Doesn’t Stink!

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 son loves it!

My 2 1/2 year old son loves that it eats the cars and poops them out. While Stinky the Truck 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 makes you love him!

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 and, despite being unemployed, I just couldn’t help but buy it, for myself! For men and boys of all ages, I highly recommend this loveable companion!
The whole family is loving this toy!

My almost 8 year old son really wanted stinky the garbage truck so his Nana and Papa got it for him. As soon an we got it out of the box and it is tied down really well in the packaging, he started playing with it. Batteries were included and there is a switch in the back of the toy to turn it on, off and on demo make sure you switch it from demo to on, otherwise the toy wont do all the things it is capable of doing. Stinky the truck is a very fun and amusing toy that my son loves. It can eat cars, talk, dance and much more. We love it!!!

I don’t have this toy yet but I gave it five stars because I saw it at display at toys r us and I think it’s funny and cute. This is going to be a Christmas gift for my two yr old from his grandparents for Christmas. I know my son will love it because every time we go to toys r us he asks me to take him to stinky the truck so he can see him in the display case and every time I take my son to see stinky when we are in the store he gets a big smile on his face and he loves to see stinky dance. My son also dances with stinky.
Good Buy
