Stinky The Garbage Truck from Matchbox - The Hottest Gift This Holiday Season

Stinky the Garbage Truck is going to be the hottest seller amongst garbage trucks toys this holiday season. He is a garbage truck that transforms into a robot. As a regular garbage truck, he's fun. Transform him into a robot and he's your kid's new best friend. My son absolutely loves Stinky. He hasn't got him yet, but goes crazy when he sees the commercials and the displays in the store.

He would go even crazier if he knew I had a couple Stinky's in the bedroom closet. I'm hoping I can keep it hidden from him until then. For the purposes of this review, I took one of the Stinky the Garbage Trucks out of the box to put it through the paces. All I can say is this is one of the best garbage trucks toys ever created.

Stinky Talks and Sings

The first thing I did after opening the box was to start pushing the button on Stinky's chest. He has over 90 phrases and songs he sings. He likes to talk about the work he's going to do and even asks for high fives from time to time. If your kid loves playing with interactive toys, this toy garbage truck will keep him entertained for hours. Beneath Stinky's gruff exterior is a loveable and entertaining toy that your child will be excited to have.

There are seemingly buttons all over this truck that make him spring into action. Pressing his belly, pulling his smokestack or lifting his rear door all elicit funny responses from Stinky. I'm not going to ruin the surprise, but let's just say you will probably laugh at a few of the things you hear Stinky the Garbage Truck say.

Other features

Yes, there's even more to this cool truck. You can open his mouth and put a Matchbox car or two (or anything else small enough to fit) in it. Pull his smokestack and he'll dump the toys out the back end of the trash compartment. When Stinky asks for food, feed him a car or two. Pull his smokestack and let the laughs begin.

Stinky the Garbage Truck comes with a Big Rig Buddies DVD featuring none other than Stinky himself. Also featured on the DVD is his best friend Rocky the Dump Truck, who can also be purchased if you want two articulated trucks around the house.

Mini Stinky the Garbage Truck

Mini Stinky the Garbage Truck in Box

If the big version is too expensive, Matchbox has released a mini Stinky that is about half the size of the full-size version. It clocks in at about half the price but doesn't have all of the features his big brother does. Be careful if you're buying Stinky from the auction sites or classified ads and make sure you are getting the right one. As you can see from the pictures below, they look very similar.

Mini Stinky has become rather tough to find. He was originally sold for $10 at a number of different retailers. He is now selling for anywhere between 20 to 30 dollars depending on the site. If you want more information on buying Mini Stinky the Garbage Truck, click on the buy now link below.

Both of these toys were hot toys this holiday season. They were sold out or close to sold out in most of the stores that sold them. They also saw some crazy fluctuations in price. I personally saw them for as high as $75 for the big Stinky and $25 for the mini one. Now that the holiday season is drawing to an end, these toys should become easier to find in the stores. The prices should normalize a bit as well and drop back to around the $55 to $60 price range. If you want to buy Stinky, he should be available now at most major online retailers.
