Transformers Optimus Prime Bear Review (Build-A-Bear Workshop)

Transformers Optimus Prime Bear
What It Is

One of your favorite Transformers characters can now be transformed from robot to teddy bear with the Build-A-Bear Workshop Transformers Optimus Prime Bear. This 16-inch stuffed animal looks like a plush version of the Autobot, but when you flip up the face, you'll find a smiling bear head underneath. The toy also has jointed arms so that kids can create different robot poses as they play out their own Transformers adventures.

To bring the character to life, add in the Transformers Optimus Prime 5-in-1 Sayings sound chip, which is sold separately for $7. It gets inserted into the bear's foot, and then kids just press the foot to hear phrases such as, "Transform and roll out!" and "Not on my watch Decepticons!"

Is It Fun?
This is a really cute bear that young Transformers fans will have fun playing with and hugging. It's very soft, but with the jointed arms and the transforming face feature, kids will be engaged in a lot of imaginative play along with the hugging. They'll like making up their own Autobots versus Decepticons stories with this toy. And if you add in the sound chip, sold separately, you'll really be able to bring the character to life. We even think older Transformers fans will want to add this toy to their collections.
Who It’s For
The Transformers Optimus Prime Bear is for ages 3 and up. This is going to be a lot of fun for young Transformers fans because it has the huggability of a stuffed animal with the transformation feature of Transformers. We also think that older fans will enjoy adding this soft version of a favorite character to their Transformers collections.
What To Be Aware Of

This is sold exclusively at Build-A-Bear Workshop.

The Transformers Optimus Prime 5-in-1 Sayings sound chip heard in this video review does not come with the bear. It is a separate $7 purchase.

A Bumblebee Bear is also available and sold separately.
