EDITOR'S REVIEW
OVERALL EDITOR'S RATING:
What It Is

The Transformers Power Charge Bumblebee is recommended for ages 6+ and it includes 1 AA battery. The  Bumblebee figure is impressive, complete with battle mask and stinger sword. And since we are talking about Transformers, yes, the Power Charge Bumblebee does transform. 17 steps will get you from Autobot to Bug - a classic Volkswagon Bug, that is. With that, I did have some trouble following along with the transformation instructions, and once complete, I had additional issues getting the Bug to look completely ready for the road. Push the Bug back and forth to rev the engine and charge Bumble Bee. But beyond that, this is not the smoothest riding toy car I've played with. The packaging boasts 25 sounds and phrases but the phrases are limited and I'm not sure I'm hearing 25 different sounds. 

Is It Fun?
Yes, but difficult to transform, especially for younger children. 
Who It’s For
Bumblebee collectors and Transformers fans.
