Review: Transformers Construct-Bots

Disclosure: Special thanks to Mom It Forward for sponsoring this post. All opinions are my own. 

Here's a creative new take on that all-time toy favorite - The Transformers - just in time for the holidays: Transformers Construct-Bots, just recently released by Hasbro, let you build your very own Transformers!  

Each TRANSFORMERS CONSTRUCT-BOTS figure includes a robot frame, armor, weapons, and accessory parts so your kids can create their own Transformers robot action figure. Just like with traditional Transformers, you can quickly and easily convert from robot to vehicle and back without taking it apart. And since all parts are interchangeable between all Transformers Construct-Bots figures, kids can mix and match and create their very own Transformers. 
Transformers Construct-Bots come in many different sets and "classes": The Ultimate Set contains two skeletons and pieces for two full bots, Optimus Prime and Megatron. The Triple Changers - Blitzwing and Bumblebee - convert between robot, car and jet modes. The Elite Class - Soundwave, Wheejack and Megatron - convert between robot and vehicle modes. The Scout Class - Ironhide, Scarscream, Bumblebee and Thundercracker - convert between robot and vehicle modes. 

My 12-year-old son gave these new Transformers a thumbs-up. He liked that he was able to create his own Transformers and yet they still were able to easily transform. These Transformers will be added to his collection - he even has a few vintage Transformers - these really are becoming one of those classic toys that you can pass down to your own kids!

Extending the fun and creativity, there's also a free app that helps you construct and customize your Transformers robots on the go. Simply enter codes found in Construct Bots toys to unlock Part Packs. Part Packs will let you construct and customize bigger, stronger bots that will help you get further in the game. Also - encourage your kids to enter their best bots on the Transfomers Contruct-Bots gallery, where kids are invited to share their most creative bots.
