A Closer Look

Final Thoughts

Getting the Monster Truck ready to play with was simple – pop 3 batteries in the truck and two in the remote and switch on the truck (the batteries aren’t included in the box so make sure you have 5 AAA batteries). The remote doesn’t have an on/off switch so you don’t need to do anything with that.

The yellow horns on the top of the truck can move position – much to the amusement of my 4 year old assistant.

The remote has two thumb stick controls – one to go forward to back, and the other to turn the front wheels left and right. The truck is rear wheel drive and the tyres and nice a chunky and get a good grip on stone, carpet and even sand! We played with it inside the house and outside and it was a lot of fun. The remote is also the perfect size for a small pair of hands, as demonstrated above by my assistant.

The truck is easy to control and can even move when on it’s side – again, much to the amusement of my assistant! There is even a control under the truck to adjust the rate of drift if you need to.

I did have a small issue early on with the front wheels becoming stuck in turned position – the only way to fix it was to push very hard to get them to click back into place, but that only happened once in the several hours of the play test!

Talking of which, they say you should get around 40 minutes of play from the batteries – we have managed to get a lot more than that so thats a win!

All in all this is a really fun toy to have and play with – when you are allowed to (my assistant was very keen to give it a thorough review and follow up)!

I asked my assistant if he had anything else to add, and this is what he said:

“It’s awesome, I love it”

“I would give it 1000 stars (I asked out of 5!)”

“I love the horns (as he kept moving their position every few minutes)”

The Monster Jam El Toro Loco 1:24 Radio Controlled Truck is available now priced around £18.
