Things We Like About The Matchbox Treasure Tracker
We like that this is not your typical toy truck. It comes with a built-in metal detector that will easily find small items or objects, even if they are buried.
The sensitivity of the detector is quite notable. It can detect small objects even if they are buried in the sand up to a depth of six inches.
The mechanism is quite simple and straight forward. You will let the truck pass through a patch of sand with the treasure sensor turned on. Once it detects something buried on the sand, there will be a beeping sound and the truck will start flashing red light.
Once the treasure has been found, you can haul it with you. That is when you make use of the truck bed, which is detachable, as a sifter and as a scoop to dig the treasure you found.
Things We Did Not Like About The Matchbox Treasure Tracker
A detection depth of six inches is already impressive enough, but if they made it deeper, we’d be even more excited about it.
Mattel has not yet released the full details of the warranty or guarantees applicable to this product. However, knowing Mattel, customers will feel more at ease knowing they will be protected.
Is The Matchbox Treasure Tracker Worth The Money?
Everyone is in agreement that, at $
