Play-Doh Trash Tossin' Rowdy the Garbage Truck

Play-Doh Trash Tossin' Rowdy the Garbage Truck

The Play Doh Diggin Rigs, while not necessarily designed for boys, help to give a gender balance to the Play Doh Prettiest Princess playsets. Not that one can *only* be played with by boys or girls, but they certainly have a targeted demographic. While the Play Doh Prettiest Princess has gained tremendous popularity the Diggin Rigs seem to be less popular. The Trash Tossin' Rowdy the Garbage Truck may help even the score.

Rowdy the Garbage Truck lifts the garbage into the back of the truck. In the back, as Rowdy rolls down the road it compressed and spits out a variety of garbage shapes (like bugs, fish, and other yucky things).


- Comes with Rowdy the Garbage Truck and four large cans of Play Doh - Yellow, Blue, Purple/Lavender, and Green

- Rowdy the Garbage Truck gobbles up Play Doh garbage and spits out trash. As the rear wheels turn it operates a rotating mold inside of Rowdy the Garbage Truck. You can see how it operates in the video portion of the review.

- The cab of the garbage truck comes out to make the molds for the trash cans and waste bottles.

- As Rowdy the Garbage Truck rolls the garbage is literally tossed out of the bottom. Although a little is needed because some of the garbage can be "tossed" several feet. I don't know about you, but for us flying Play Doh is a recipe for a mess. Just keep that in mind as you play with it on a mat or an area that a little Play Doh will not be a concern.

- Comes with a worm extruder - you can make plenty of worms for your trash.

- A small plastic shovel is included for scooping up the Play Doh trash

- Appropriate for children ages 2 and up

- Other than the Play Doh being projected out of the back of the garbage truck - clean-up is pretty easy

- No batteries are needed.

Final Verdict - The Play Doh trash Tossin' Rowdy the Garbage Truck is a fun twist on playing with Play Doh. Parents may cringe a bit as they see the Play Doh garbage projected out of the end of the truck, but in our opinion it is still one of the better Play Doh toys. Recommended... especially if you have a child who enjoys garbage trucks.
