Playskool Heroes Transformers Review

Playskool Heroes Transformers as birthday toys for Tyler

Grandson Tyler just turned six. Since we only get to visit in person a couple times a year, I always need advice from his parents as to what his latest 'favorite' toy is.  This time the recommendation was for a Heroes Transformers action figure by Playskool. 

Due to the marvel of today's video chats, I was able to watch-in-person while Tyler opened his birthday gift from grandma. Judging by his reaction, my birthday gift of this transformer action figure was a BIG hit. 

The Optimus Prime Rescue Bot Action Figure

This Rescue Bot Action Figure manufactured by Hasbro (a trusted toy company) has an easy-to-do conversion. It converts from robot mode to vehicle mode and back again. As a fierce truck, Optimus Prime is ready to roll to the rescue in a (pretend) dangerous situation. Then the vehicle can be quickly converted into a heroic robot figure to save the day! 

This 2-in-1 toy is sized just right for small hands and recommended for ages 3-7. The perfect toy for newly 6-year-old Tyler.

As a grandmother, I also like to be 'practical' when it comes to purchasing gifts for my five grandsons. It is also appreciated by the parents.  So, in addition to the Transformers Toy, I also sent a Transformers Boys' Optimus Prime T-Shirt to match the toy. The T-Shirt has an Officially licensed graphics decal on the front that matches the Transformer Toy. The shirt is 100% cotton, has a super soft crew neck, is made in the USA, and is machine washable. 


My little Tyler liked both the Transformers Rescue Bot Robot toy and the T-shirt to match. He knows all about the Transformers Cyberverse Adventures by Hasbro..... and Grandma is now being educated about this world of Transformers. :)

Happy Birthday, Tyler!

  1. Happy Birthday Tyler! The Transformer Bot & T-shirt are awesome and the perfect gifts for a child. I very much remember hearing "I am Optimus Prime" echoing through the rooms of my own home in years past. Differently a favorite here too. Plus, who wouldn't love a toy that converts from bot to vehicle? Truly fabulous! Btw, t-shirts are still very popular gifts for the guys in our household.

  2. Happy Birthday to Tyler!! I'm so glad you had the chance to watch him open his gift. You surely picked a winner. I love Optimus Prime, and Bumble Bee is also one of my favorites.

    1. Sam, Optimus Prime and Bumble Bee are new to me, but with 5 grandsons I'm now learning about all sorts of toys and items that I didn't know about when my kids were small. Thanks for your visit.

    2. And having the ability to 'watch' my grandchildren open gifts via video is so special. Wish it had been available for my parents when my kids were small.

  3. Kids always need clothes, so combining a T-shirt with a toy seemed like a great gift for Tyler's birthday. I'm just now hearing (and learning) about the Optimus Prime Transformers. I don't remember them when my kids were small. But with five grandsons, I'm learning about all kinds of toys that are new to me. :) Thanks for visiting, Mouse.

  4. You hit a home run, Grandma. The best gifts are those that stimulate the imagination. How wonderful to share Tyler's joy via live video. A perfect gift package.

    1. Thanks, Diana. Always great fun when your gifts turn out to be the perfect choices.

  5. Awe he's a doll - These toys were popular with my guys when they were young - they sure do stand the test of time!

    1. Thanks, Barbara. Tyler IS adorable. He's now the youngest of my five grandchildren -- all boys. They are ALL adorable, of course. :)

  6. Oh you are such a great Grandmother. I want to go back sometimes and play with those toys they have for the kids. I can see why Tyler loves this so much. I think Transformers were the rage at some point with my children too. It's nice to see them making a comeback.

    1. Funny how so many grandmas here already knew about the transformer toys. I don't remember them at all when my kids were young. Either we never got any, or my kids were not interested. Will have to ask them... LOL.

  7. Tyler is just way way too cute! A transformers robot is of course the perfect gift from Grandma!

  8. Thanks, Tracey. I think Tyler is adorable, of course. And he loves his transformers robot.
