What We Think

Fun factor:
Ease of assembly:
Novelty factor:

The Good: "Hard work" made enjoyable with talking and jokes.

The Challenging: Difficult to get directly to dance mode.

In a Nutshell: Interactive robot truck lifts, talks, dumps, and dances.

This is no ordinary dump truck -- Rocky talks and dances. View larger.
Load 'Em Up and Move 'Em Out
Built with strong, durable plastic, Rocky is ready to handle heavy loads. Your child can manually tilt his dump bed to unload it -- or make some noise and he'll do it for you. And when you push Rocky forward or pull him backward on all six wheels, his blue headlights are activated and he'll make some noise of his own, with engine sounds and honking.

The smokestack on the front of the truck is the primary way to control this robot truck. Tilting the lever back gets Rocky to stand on his back four wheels. The truck is automatically set in dump mode, but pressing the red button on top of the smokestack several times will switch it to dancing mode, where he'll shake his upper truck body to music. Pushing the lever forward returns Rocky to a normal truck position.

The red button also cues Rocky to say one of his many phrases or jokes, and also wakes him up if he's taking a nap. If you don't play with Rocky for a while, he will go into sleep mode -- a may even snore. Kids get Rocky's attention by placing objects in his dump bed, or by pushing or pulling him.

Make Some Noise!
Rocky is very responsive, interactive, and engaging -- often prompting kids to make noise so he can show off his dancing and dumping skills. Because you can play with him manually or with his help, Rocky makes playtime easy and simple. However, with only one button for a couple of operations, Rocky's automatic modes may take some getting used to for younger children. They may have a difficult time getting directly past the robot's talking to get to the dancing mode.

Rocky The Robot Truck comes with four "C" batteries.

5He's a hit!
By Jeremy Tews
He's a hit! Remember to replace the batteries right away, like the box says. He won't work very well without fresh batteries. So have them on hand. My son wanted to play with it right away.

5Grandpa wins the day
By SeaviewJohn
This was a birthday gift for our grandson and he loved it. Rocky and by extension grandpa, was the hit of the party. I must warn that the adults may have been having as much fun as the kids playing and interacting with Rocky. You will be happy with this selection.

5Durable and Fun
By Mizze
This was a gift for 5 year-old grandson birthday. Arrived in good condition. The 5 year-old loves noise, sounds and lights on toys so this was a big hit with him. His request was a robot for his birthday as was his request last year. Matchbox Rocky the Robot Truck was a hit with him and the 7 & 2 year-old. All of them play with it is still functioning and not broken! As much as they loved the Robokid Programable Disc Shooting Robot last year, it ended up broken after falling off a table and no one could fix it, but not sure they tried. So this gift was a hit. I would recommend it and probably the other Matchbox Robots.
