Monster Truck Smash-Ups

Mr Squishy is your typical little boy.  He loves cars, trucks, trains and anything that belongs to his older sisters because if it’s good enough for them it’s good enough for him not to mention it’s fun being chased around the house apparently with them in pursuit screaming at him.

Squishy was fortunate enough to be sent a Monster Smash-Up RC Truck by Toyrific.  This is one of those toys that you see on the adverts between cartoons and they really do make it look fantastic but I have to say until we actually got one I didn’t realise how terrific or Toyrific (sorry couldn’t help myself) they really are.

Forget the kids you’ll want one of these and may find yourself having a go when the kids are at nursery/school etc. as seriously they won’t be letting you play with it any other time and that is from experience.

What’s In The Box?

The Truck

4 cones with flags to navigate around or simply drive over.

Stickers for sticking on siblings and anywhere else you might fancy including the truck, mummy’s bottom (sneakily so she doesn’t realise) and anywhere else your heart desires.  Start and stop stickers for the flags.

A usb charger to charge the truck.

A driver, because every vehicle needs one right!

About The Truck?

Now when we got the truck we inserted 2 AA batteries into the remote control and used the usb cable provided to charge the truck as this is rechargeable.

This lasts for up to 30 minutes according to the site but Mr Squishy somehow seemed to be playing with this for ages although as you will see from the video he’s a bit stop start.  We also need to take time to include when he grabs it and runs from his sisters who clearly desperately wanted to play too.

The truck has been designed in a way so that it comes apart easily and comes together easily with large lego like attachments.

The driver ejects from his seat on collision.

The truck has realistic monster truck suspension allowing it to tilt-turn, race and swerve.

This goes really fast, it’s great!!!!

Realistic sounds.

Is It Indestructible?

Mr Squishy has driven this into just about anything you can imagine within the home – he has even driven it off the bed over and over and over and over and over with not a scratch to the car and it still works.

Of course drive over it with a real car and you will have tears but were not daft enough to ruin such a cool and fun toy now are we.

Who Is It Targeted At?

I would say any one from ages 3 and up that is a child at heart and loves RC toys / cars / trucks.

Any Negatives

It is pretty noisy although that’s part of what makes it fun for the children with the realistic sounds.

As you can see this little man loves his new truck.

  4. That is a nice toy for a little boy or girl. I used to have one similar when I was about 10 years old. I guess my dad really wanted to have a son for a first born but he got me instead. Ha ha.
