Smokey has multiple modes for different kinds of interactions. Depending on his positioning, Smokey can operate in one of two main modes–character mode or truck mode. Smokey is in character mode when he is half or fully upright, and says phrases such as, “Smokey here! Reporting for duty!” When Smokey is on all six wheels, he is in truck mode and can be pushed forward and pulled backward to activate lights and sounds.
Using motion sensors and sound activation, Smokey is always on alert. He knows how to say over 95 phrases and can sing 4 different songs. Smokey will fall asleep if you leave him alone long enough but you can press his lights or push him around to wake him up again!
My four-year-old is still into dressing up and pretending to be a fireman. When he saw the commercials for Smokey that is all I heard about. So when I received one of these to try out he was elated! He liked the working fire hose to blast out the fires. It comes with 3 small foam balls that fit into the hose. Then there is a handle that you pull back on and the balls shoot out of the water cannon. The handle does need a bit of oomph but my little one was able to get the hang of it. Also when changing from truck to standing the lever does need a bit of strength to do, my little one was frustrated at first. Overall he likes playing with it and mimicking Smokey. This would make a cute gift for any little one that loves their trucks!
