This big, rugged toy comes fully loaded for fun: moving parts, mobility, action figures, projectiles and tool manipulatives. The truck itself is a whopping 13" long x 7" wide x 7" high. The four wheels fully rotate with a diesel-like sound.
There are three launching platforms on the truck - ladder, side panels and front seat bay - and a hose that blasts "water" (actually a plastic water spout) with the press of a button.
Unlike many toys that include only one figure with additional figures purchased separately, Matchbox includes a generous starter set of three Big Boots allowing multiple platforms of play to be engaged right out of the box simultaneously. The truck itself will hold 12 figures.
One suggestion: Peel-and-stick decals would be a nice addition to this toy.
The packaging is incredible and if you buy this as a gift, it will make an impressive presentation - even wrapped. The figures are tied down with stretchy plastic strands and the truck is anchored with plastic tabs. Both are easy to open to access the toy. Since the toy is powered by kid energy, batteries aren't needed and no assembly required. This is ready-to-go fun.
It is amazing how Matchbox has built excitement and energy into the Big Boots brand. Highly recommend this toy for the action figure in your house.
