My three year old plays with this toy everyday. The truck has buttons on the truck bed that trigger the sounds of music, an excited announcer, and a horn. A couple of buttons will also make it go forward and backward (only a few feet at a very slow speed, but still a cool feature as it is not to be compared with a remote control car/truck). It gets sat on, pushed as fast as three year old legs can run, and hits the wall a lot, but it still looks and operates fine. I highly recommend it for little monster truck lovers.
