Transformers #BeastHunters Great For Kids & Parents

Transformers is loved in our home.  I loved them when I was a kid, my husband loved them when he was a kid and now our sons love them.  (I would be shocked if they didn't!)  Transformers are timeless and Duke has been following the Transformers Prime animated series on The HUB when a new faction of Beast Transformers robots emerge on Earth: the dragon-like Predacons!  When the opportunity came up to review Hasbro KRE-O Transformers Beast Hunters I went for it not only for my kid but so I could have Ripclaw Strike here!!!  He is awesome!  This is the first KRE-O set to enter our home, the age range is 6-12 years old.  I didn't know if my 7 year old would be able to build him by himself.  I just let Duke go for it.  My instinct was to tell him read the instructions and then go from there but he opened the box and started opening the packages.  I was worried but had his little voice in the back of my head, "Don't be like those other moms! Let me learn on my own!"

Almost an hour later and he was done!  So there was a little whining in that hour but he did it... all on his own!  He introduced Ripclaw Strike to his other toys and played till it was bedtime.  $16.99 is a great price to pay for quiet time.  I got to do dishes and catch up on some work!

My thoughts:  The KRE-O set is great quality at an excellent price point.  The box says: works with major brands although Duke hasn't tried it yet.  He loved the 2 Kreon figures Colonel Daniel Witwicky and Ripclaw.  It was challenging but not difficult for him.  Ripclaw Strike is 2 figures in 1: Build a Robot or a Dragon - he's currently in dragon form.  I would definitely buy more KRE-O sets for my sons or to give as gifts!

The Transformers Prime Beast Hunters Deluxe assortment features the Autobots and Decepticons with new looks and more powerful weapons to confront the new beastly Predacons!  There are 16 characters (each sold separately) including Bumblebee, Wheeljack and Laserback the Predacon.  The Transformers Prime Beast Hunters Voyager Class assortment features the leaders of the Autobots and Predacons as large-scale action figures!  There are 6 figures in this assortment including Optimus Prime and Preadaking.  The Beast Hunters product line ranges from $14.99-$19.99; ages 5 and up.

I'm a stickler for packaging.  Love that the box has a handle and it's called a KRE-O Container.

I remember when he would let me open stuff for him...

Smart packaging!  Love that Hasbro thought to tape the wings down instead of it getting bent in the container!

Even though Duke finished this in an hour, this picture was taken the next day because he begged me to let him play!

I love them because they awaken my son's imagination and help him see different ways to see toys.

We bought a couple of these KRE-O Transformers for our nephew, and he loved them! I love that they have to build them, it entertains them while teaching them to be patient and creative.

When my boys see the commercials for them they say how cool they are. Transformers are a bit of nostalgia for me. I also think their great for their imagination and mechanical reasoning
