WHAT THE KIDS SAY
This wasn't like a real transformer. Mom said it was a transformer set, but I don't think it was. It was too easy. The truck only had one piece that turned and I don't think he was really Optimus Prime. The fire truck was OK. The sound when it opens is cool, but it looks a lot like one I had when I was a baby (~3 years old).
This toy is super cool. I know how to work all the buttons and I like to keep the driver and Optimus Prime in the firetruck so they don't get lost. When I push the yellow button, Optimus Prime shoots out.
I like transforming toys especially when they work well. I love Rescue Heroes...so I love Bot Rescuers.
I like how there's 2 trucks (the big one and the little one) so if one gets burnt the other can still go to the rescue.
WHAT ADULTS THINK
It's a well built sturdy toy that can take the abuse of my 4 year old son. He really enjoys playing with the fire truck and opening and closing the back and shooting out the car. He doesn't play with the little man much but enjoys the fire truck and the car by themselves or together. His favourite thing about the toy is the transforming sound that it makes when the doors open. He has other transformers that he never plays with because they are too hard for him to transform. This toy is ideal and perfect for his age.
Not a bad set, but definitely geared to younger children. If your child has already been exposed to real transformers, they likely won't find this set very challenging as the transforming is quite basic. My 6 year old, who regularly plays with real transformers didn't like this one, he wanted more than a one button transformation. But I'm thinking for a 3 to 4 year old, this would be a pretty good transformers starter set.
This is a great toy with many features to keep my 4 year old son busy.
A sturdy play set enjoyed by Jack (M7) and Chloe (F4). The set transforms easily and quickly.Cody drops into the vehicle with a touch of a button (but Jack noted Cody hits his head when he drives back in. The transforming sound effects started to annoy me just a touch.
