My son loves his computer time playing games online and with kids spending so much time doing more techy things I love that he still does enjoy one aspect of good old fashion toys and that is building things.
You can imagine his excitement when we received the Kreo Transformers Destruction Site Devastator set by Hasbro as an early Christmas present to try out. This was actually on his Christmas list which consisted of mainly electronic items so I was stoked to let him play with it.
The set comes with over 600 pieces (yayyy that means hours of playtime and quiet time for mommy) and not only turns into a big robot but can also transform into vehicles or several robots. I think this makes for a great gift because it’s almost like giving several gifts in one.
The Destruction Devastator is best for 8 years olds and above. It may be a little advanced and have to many pieces for children younger then that.
In addition he received 2 separate sets which let him build one of his favorite characters Optimus Prime. The other character you can build is the infamous Megatron.
The Cycle Chase and the Decepticon Ambush are great for the smaller kids, plus less pieces.
Here are some other cool tips for gift buyers:
• 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! • KRE-‐O TRANSFORMERS sets make a great present and/or stocking stuffer for the upcoming Holiday season • KRE-‐O is a fun activity for kids, and provides them with something exciting to play with once the presents are unwrapped .
For those looking for stocking stuffers there is also a KREON Micro-‐Changers Mystery Bags available for $2.99 which can turn into an insect or jet. These are great to give in addition to the sets!

I have heard these were popular. My boys are a little young for them right now.
That’s a descent price. My son is 11 and this would be worth looking into.
My son is 9 and I am always looking for things he might like! I think he would really enjoy these! Thanks!!
My boys enjoy the Halo Mega Block sets so I’ll bet they’ll enjoy the Transformers one too. I don’t think I’ve heard of Kreo, can I get them anywhere? I don’t get to the store much. :)
My son wants this but want sure, but thanks to your review I think Santa might get it for him :)
