The summer holidays are in full swing here and luckily Joshua has been in his full transformer mode with all his action figures out and a desire to watch the films again.
Perhaps it’s a good thing there is a new film out we have yet to watch as watching the same ones over again is a little *cough cough* annoying.
However Hasbro have once again come to my Transformer loving sons rescue with a new toy from their range based on the new film, The Last Knight. And we have been lucky enough to get to road test it and get to share our thoughts in this review.
The Autobot Squeaks is a remote controlled figure that comes with its own blaster but not its own batteries. So parents you will need 6 AA batteries to make this guy work. The super news is they were super quick to fit.
Sqweeks is around 21cms tall so is a nice size and the remote is super easy to operate with the 4 buttons on there. The 2 main buttons on the top are for basic forward, backwards, left and right while the buttons on the front are the ones that control if he is in blaster mode or even dance mode! .. This little fella can certainly dance! In this mode we he plays funky music and dances around uncontrollably (in this mode we have seen him tip on to one wheel and wheelie!)
Joshua, age 6 has loved Sqweeks and has easily controlled him. Jacob, 18 months has equally loved him and laughed as Joshua has controlled him. It is baring in mind that Sqweeks is designed for children over 6.
Personally I loved the detailing on Sqweeks but I found him to be a touch too loud for me and there is no option to turn him down so he is mainly played with in Joshua bedroom now, it also helps keep Jacobs too little fingers off him too!
Just a heads up if you are wondering how to turn him off you need to hold Sqweeks upside-down for 18 seconds and he nods off. If you don’t turn him off he will keep making noise to encourage you to play with him!
Radio Control Autobot Sqweeks retails at £69.99
