First of all, I want to apologize to the team at Hasbro for the late review. For most of the month of May, we were moving. The toys sat in a box, waiting to be opened. We did not want to open until we hit the road.
Now that we are settled, the toys are out and the fun has begun.
So, that means review time.
I know the movie opened many weeks ago, but do kids really care? They just want the toys.
The toys that were sent by Hasbro were a Spider-man mask and a Spider-man web shooter.
I grew up loving Transformers. Yes, they were around long before Michael Bay got his hands on them. The cartoons, the toys, the iconic transforming sound. Loved it all.
So it is the best feeling when I get to watch my boys build their own love for the toys as the grow. Sure a few things have changed and the modern versions of the toys are much more slick and fancy, but they are still transformers.
One of the modern views of the transformers are the Construct-Bots.
Recently I was sent a few by the good folks at Hasbro. The plan was to build them with my son and then name it and post it to the web.
Well, parenting got in the way and I just got around to opening the box today.
Thanks dad, jeez. Anyways. Harrison does not even know they are in the house.
The latest blockbuster movie to hit the big screen is Star Trek Into Darkness and with any movie of that size, you know there will be cool toys for the dads, I mean kids.
Hasbro has been kind enough to send us three toys from their new KRE-O Star Trek line. The exciting new group of toys includes KRE-O building sets and KREON figures based on J.J. Abrams’ Star Trek franchise.
The package that came in the mail was pretty big, so the excitement shot through the house pretty fast. And that was just me. My boys are not old enough to play with this kind of lego, so it worked out that they are away with their mother. That will give me time to build each ship before they get home.
