Holiday Gift Ideas -- Hasbro's KRE-O Transformers (Review) #spon

Hasbro’s KRE'O TRANSFORMERS sets let kids build TRANSFORMERS characters in either their robot or vehicle modes – using the same bricks.  Each set also comes with fun KREON figures, featuring your favorite Autobots and Decepticons.  I was recently sent a few samples to review with my family and I can't tell you how much fun we had!

My nephew was over visiting and he thought Christmas had come early when he saw the kits on the dining room table.  When I told him we would be making Transformers characters with these kits, his eyes lit up.  This was the first time I had tried out these KRE'O Kits from Hasbro, so I didn't know how easy they would be for young children, as he was 8 years old. Also, I have had experience in the past with kits like these that showed a picture on the outside of the box, only to be disappointed when we finally put together the pieces and they looked nothing like the cool characters on the box.  So, even though I saw how excited my nephew and children were, I told them that the final build may be different from the box's image.  But, we were all pleasantly surprised when we made these fun KREON figures, as they did look like the box images.  

I don't know about you, but my husband is a huge Transformers fan.  He loved playing with them growing up and have seen the hit motion pictures movies countless times.  So, when he walked in from work and saw us building our KRE'O Transformers Decepticons and Autobots, he dropped his bag at the door and pulled up a seat.  And, for the next few hours he was engrossed, as my nephew and eldest daughter in building their favorite Transformers characters and acting out moves from the movies, as well as pretend playing.  My nephew had requested halfway through building to watch the latest Transformers movie, so I put this on the background.  But, he was so into the building of his Transformers, that he forgot it was on. :-)

What a great time everyone had, both adults and children, with these KRE'O Transformers kits from Hasbro.  And, with the holidays right around the corner, I know what will be on many boys' (and husbands) wish lists. :-) "KRE'O TRANSFORMERS sets make a great present and/or stocking stuffer for the upcoming Holiday season.  It is a fun activity for kids, and provides them with something exciting to play with once the presents are unwrapped."
