While the tow truck is on the recognition sensor, press down or quickly push the vehicle through the gate to hear a greeting and see lights flash.
The tow truck is also a Go! Go! Smart Wheels SmartPoint vehicle. That means that when you push it over one of the six SmartPoint locations on the track, you'll hear it play a related phrase, sound, or melody. Additional SmartPoint vehicles are sold separately. Kids can also push the light-up driver button on the tow truck or push the vehicle around for more sounds, phrases, and music.

What To Be Aware Of
The tow truck requires two AAA batteries, which are included for the in-store try-me features. It's recommended that you replace them before you play for best results. The playset requires two AA batteries, which are not included.
Assembly is required, and it took us 10 minutes to put this together. The instructions were very easy to follow.
When both the tow truck and the playset are on, it can get very loud and they talk over each other, making it difficult for kids to hear the sounds and prompts. You'll probably want to play with only one item on at a time.
