What It Is

What It Is

Big Rig Buddies are smaller versions of boys' favorite group of working trucks, including Rocky the Robot Truck, Stinky the Garbage Truck, and Dexy the Digger Truck. This new assortment of smaller vehicles still delivers interactive features, but they are geared toward a younger audience. For instance, with Rocky, kids can move his dump truck up and down for pretend play.

Why It’s Fun

The Big Rig Buddies trucks are a great alternative to the larger, more expensive Real Talking Rigs trucks, making them perfect for a younger child. These smaller trucks enhance classic vehicle play with favorite characters and fun features.

Who It’s For

These smaller trucks are for boys ages 3 and up.

What to Be Aware of

A Big Rig Buddies playset is also available. The Scrap Yard Adventure playset allows kids to bring their Big Rig Buddies vehicles to life through three modular obstacle courses. The playset is sold separately.
