Stinky the Garbage Truck
When you talk to Stinky, he talks back
Funny that the commercial says Stinky the Garbage Truck is a boy's best friend. Intended to be a clean-up toy, the commercial shows it gobbling up toy cars. The vehicle is activated by sound, has a motion sensor, can sense direction, detects when it is carrying something, senses obstacles, and produces sound and moves in a synchronized way. When you speak to him, he speaks back, so he becomes a friend to you as you are playing with him. He says dozens of funny sayings. He gets hungry, tells jokes, and interacts as a friend would.
