Testers had fun with the first of the Mini Monster Truck collectibles. These would make great party favors or stocking stuffers. Each comes with a key that you insert and then squeeze to launch. Without batteries or any other tricks, the little trucks scoot across the floor. The mini poster in the box shows ten variations for the well-known condition — the “buy me, buy me syndrome.” Unlike some of the mystery collectible, where you can’t be sure if you already bought the one in the box, these are marked with numbers. So far, we’ve only seen the one marked with a 1, but assume more will soon be on the way. They say 3 and up, we think most 3s will have trouble making the key squeeze work. We suggest 4 and up.
