My boys LOVED the Beam Box... When it worked!

We received the Transformers Rescue Bots Beam Box game to try and review (Thanks Bzz Agent!!) My two boys (ages 3 and 7) were super excited to give it a try. They had not heard of the game before we received our unit but they love Transformers so they were more than willing to give it a try. We hooked it up and loaded Optimus Prime in the box and pressed the big blue button.... and NOTHING! After a few attempts, we decided that maybe there was a problem with the Optimus Prime Figure so we purchased a Bumble Bee Rescue Bot to try. We got the same results... NOTHING! If I had purchased the Beam Box, I would have returned it as defective, but since it was provided at no cost, I did not have that option. I decided to check it out and try to find out what the problem was. Turns out there was a loose connection inside. Once I was able to better secure the connection, the character was beamed into the game and we were able to play! The game held the attention of my 7 year old, who is a HUGE Skylanders fan. He loved playing and played as long as we would let him. My 3 year old had a bit of trouble with the controls and getting things going but he was very content to let Dad help and also watch his brother. Before long, the game stopped responding to the characters... the connection was loose again. I disassembled the box and repaired again, which lasted for a few more days. My boys LOVE the game, but it seems to be a bit cheaply made. A few other observations: The removable rear door is a very good idea, we have had characters stuck a few times and I do not know how we would have fixed it without the door. The characters will only beam if loaded correctly and, initially, it's not completely clear the proper way to load. I thought this was our problem initially but soon realized that the characters were being loaded correctly but the game was not responding. The games are great, both my boys loved them and have a great time playing. I gave it three stars because I think it is a great idea and my boys really do enjoy it. I am not sure the unit will withstand the wear and tear of preschoolers and even older. They way you have to press the button to "beam" the character seems to invite damage as it takes quite a bit of force to push the button. It would have been 5 stars had we not had the issues that we had to get the unit to work.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

WHAT A HIT!

We received this product to try for free through bzzagent. I have a 4 year old boy who already loves transformers, so when we received this game system he was so excited! It is super easy to set up. Take out of box, insert batteries, plug into T.V. and there ya go! The system is very easy for him to understand and play by himself, which is great because he gets so frustrated trying to play games on the wii. His favorite part is getting to beam the transformer into the T.V. My 8 year old daughter also enjoys playing it with her little brother. I can't wait for Christmas so I can purchase the other characters for them and unlock even more games! We are very satisfied with this product! A must buy for little boys!

A Great Introduction to Video Games

We recently had the opportunity to try Playskool Heroes Transformers Rescue Bots Beam Box Game System for free from BzzAgent. The Beam Box is run on batteries, 4 "AA" for the system and 2 "AAA" for the controller. This is most likely to avoid the dangers of using an outlet for a game marketed for 3-7 year olds but can be costly if the Beam Box is used regularly. Installing the batteries and connecting the video cable to the TV was all it took to start playing. My son placed the Optimus Prime figure into the Beam Box and pressed the button. This is where the game system is truly unique. Beaming the Transformer onto the TV was like magic to my preschooler and he very excitedly exclaimed, "He went up, up, UP into the TV!!" Making the figure appear and disappear entertained him for another five minutes before we could even play the game. Playskool obviously realized this would be fascinating to little ones because there is a door on the back of the Beam Box in case the Transformer gets stuck inside. Nice thinking. Once we started the game I was immediately disappointed by the simplistic graphics. But then I considered the price point. When I considered that the "real" game systems are over ten times that price before even buying a game, I figured I could be a little forgiving. As we started to play I noticed that all the instructions are spoken rather than written, which is very helpful since preschoolers can't read. The Optimus Prime figure comes with 5 main games and you can purchase additional Transformers to unlock a game unique to that character. The games are short and seemingly simple. Optimus transforms into a tractor trailer and you move across lanes to pick up energy crystals and avoid boulders and other vehicles, a maze game that is very reminiscent of Pac-Man, shooting a laser to ward off spaceships, chopping a boulder open, and moving a cart back and forth to catch the energy crystals before they fall in the lava. The controller only has two buttons: a directional pad and an action button. It was hard for him to coordinate both actions at the same time. There is one drawback: the controller has to be pointed right at the Beam Box or the system will not register movements. I love the reward system. Unlike most games there aren't "lives" and you don't die or get defeated. Instead you complete the game, which is timed, and earn a bronze, silver, or gold medal. This makes the game rewarding without being frustrating since chances are your preschooler isn't an experienced gamer. Overall the Beam Box is a great way to introduce video games to your preschooler or kindergartner. The controller and games are simplified so they don't become too overwhelming. There are no villains, blood or guns. There is no disappointing GAME OVER; you excel by getting better medals. The system, however, is not without it's weaknesses. Replacing batteries can be expensive and the system will only be useful for the preschool and kindergarten set.

Great System for a Preschooler

I received this free as a BzzAgent campaign and I am so happy with it. My 4 year old is enthralled with the Beam Box and watching the transformer "travel" to the TV. It's easy for him to use without assistance, but exciting enough for my 6 year old and 8 year old to have fun with as well! The only issue I had with the system was insignificant - our TV set up is up high, and our 4 year old was unable to reach the Beam Box. We easily rearranged and now he can put the rescue bot in himself, as well as turn it on. I would definitely recommend this to parents of preschoolers.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Playskool Rescue Bots roll out the Fun!

My 8 and 5 year old LOVE their video games. When I received the Beam Box for free from BzzAgent to review, they were more than excited to try it out! They could easily set it up themselves and did not need any help from me to get started. By placing Optimus Prime in the beam box and clicking the top he beams onto the TV screen to start rescuing! The games were easy enough for both of my boys, but still challenging enough that they wanted to play again and again. The console is sturdy and holds up to rough housing boys who don't always put their things away. My 8 year old says it is "the coolest thing ever". If that isn't a rave review, I don't know what is! It is nice to have a game that doesn't require an expensive console system (xbox, wii, ps, etc) to play it and at that price point it is a great value.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Great 1st game system

My kiddo loves this game system! Easy set up and very child user friendly. Graphics aren't like the big name systems, but my little guy doesn't mind. There are 5 different games that u can play with Optimus Prime, plus expansion packs with other bots and games. Oh and he gets that "deep belly laugh" that I love to hear when Optimus disappears into the console. :) Thanks Bzzagent for providing my family with this system to try...and I #GotItFree!! :D

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Awesome Gaming system for young hands!!!

I received the Transformers Rescue Bots Beam Box Game System #GotItFree as a #BzzAgent. I love that it is built to withstand use by the younger age group and the additional expansion packs mean kids wont get bored getting stuck playing the same game over and over again.

I would recommend this product to a friend.
