If you've got a fire engine/fire fighter obsessed youngster in your family then this Matchbox Big Rig Buddies: Smokey the Fire Truck may well be the Christmas present of the century for them, and you will be the most awesome parent/grandparent/aunt/uncle/family friend/whoever that the world has ever seen if you give him to them.
I've just watched the promotion video for Smokey the Fire Truck (it's on the Home Bargains page) and I want to play with him; he looks like the coolest, and most realistic, talking toy I've ever seen!
His mouth looks 'soft' and moves in a rather realistic fashion when he whichever of his 95 different phrases. He promotes fire safety and fires blue balls (psuedo water) from his cannon; he has flashing lights and his front wheels move in and out when he talks which really adds to his animation.
I really urge you to watch both of the Smokey the Fire Truck videos (the first one is very American and cheesy, but quite funny in its own way) and then order your own Matchbox Big Rig Buddies: Smokey the Fire Truck.
This is such a good deal for an amazing looking fire truck toy; in fact, I'd probably be happy to pay full price for him, so £29.99 is an absolute steal and, I think, has to be my bargain of the day!
Happy fire trucking!
