I received my Transformers Beam Box from BzzAgent for free to try out and review.
My toddler was so excited to play with toy. His favorite part is "beaming" the character onto the TV. After a few days of playing, here is my review.

The initial set up is very easy - just plug it into the TV and it's ready to go! The remote works great, as long as you aren't too far from the Beam Box console and you keep it aimed toward the console. We have a really large play-room and had no problems.

My son isn't familiar with video games, so it took him a while to learn how to use the controller properly. Dad seemed to have more fun with the video games for the first few days until my son was able to get it on his own.

The graphics aren't anything like "adult" video consoles but it's perfect for kids and good for the price you pay.

The five initial games included are fairly age appropriate, some of them are a little more difficult than others. The only thing I think could use improvement is allowing more than one level of difficulty. My toddler struggles with one of the games but has mastered the other four. To keep him interested, it would be nice to have the option to adjust the level of difficulty.

The only other change I would make is the option for a two-player challenge -- this shows up after each game. It would be nice to see this once, at the beginning when the console is first started or an option on the main screen. When it's just my son playing, this extra screen is a nuisance to him. And when we have a friend over to play, we have to tell it each time that we are playing with two players.

Other than some very minor things, we love this game console! It's become a daily request to play with the Beam Box - which is saying something for a toddler! We can't wait to purchase the other characters to expand the games. This is a perfect opportunity for gifts for the holidays and it's much more age-appropriate and attention grabbing than any of the other video games we have had. I absolutely recommend this game console to parents who have children who either love video games, love transformers, or both!

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.

      Comments about Hasbro 1001119 Playskool Heroes Transformers Rescue Bots Beam Box Game System:

      My husband initially opened the Beam Box up with the kids while I wasn't home. I received the unit as a part of BzzAgent and he didn't want to wait for me. He did complain that the system uses AA and AAA batteries. While a minor detail, being the same across the board would be nice. I was out of town and he texted a picture of the kids playing. I called over an hour later to see how it went and the kids were still playing. It is mainly geared towards my almost 4yo son. However my 7 and 10 yo daughters have both really enjoyed it. They do argue over who gets to push the blue button to start the game. Whether they get bronze, silver or gold medals is hollered all over the house in excitement. They really like trying to beat each other on the two player section. Their interest did start to wane but I was finally able to find some of the extra characters ($6-7) and they have been playing with it for about 5 weeks. My son is able to play some of our Wii games but gets frustrated easily. This game he is able to play without my help. I was able to clean the kitchen yesterday while he was playing.

      We found the Helicopter Bot today and my son has been begging off and on for 6 hours to play it (he has to wait for his sisters to get home from school). He likes carrying the characters places with us. He has noticed transformers before but has never paid much attention. Today he was so proud he was getting Blade that he held it the entire shopping trip and asked the cashier if he could have it right back after she scanned it. We did have some issues with the remote registering but we moved it down to the floor and the problem was eliminated.

      I think this is a perfect game for 3-6 boy crowd.

        Comments about Hasbro 1001119 Playskool Heroes Transformers Rescue Bots Beam Box Game System:

        I obtained the Beam Box through a product campaign without having any prior experience, or even knowledge of, the product. It was quick and easy to set-up. My son was so excited as you get to 'beam' Optimus Prime to the TV screen. That part alone was a ton of fun for him.
        Once he's beamed to the screen you play various little missions including racing, defeating some bad guys, mazes, and collecting of items. While they aren't too fancy, they are fun and varied enough to offer good replay value.
        Overall a fun product that, with the beaming process, is much more interactive and enjoyable for my son!

        This is a great first game system for young children who are aware and eager about video game playing, but are too young to grasp more elaborate systems with hefty prices tags. The game system is easy to use/set up for a young child whist being entertaining and a great introduction to advanced systems for when they get older. Two thumbs up from my household.

        Received the Beam Box for review purposes from BzzAgent.

          Comments about Hasbro 1001119 Playskool Heroes Transformers Rescue Bots Beam Box Game System:

          This game system was really easy for my preschooler to learn how to operate. There is just one button and a joystick. I wish it came with more games built in, though. It only includes 5 games, and the add-on packs only add one additional game, plus allow you to play as that character in the 5 built-in games. If your child really loves the Rescue Bots, they would definitely like this system. I thought the regular retail price was a bit high since it only includes 5 games, but if you can find it on sale, it's worth buying, particularly if you can also find one or two of the add-on characters on sale to go with it so you have more options for game play. (NOTE: I received this system for free as a member of BzzAgent, but all opinions are my own.)

          This is a great first game system for younger kids. My child is 6. It seemed as if it was very basic for him and got bored quickley. I think it would be best for preschool aged children. The system is extemely easy to install and set up. I received this system free from bzzagent to review.

          Comments about Hasbro 1001119 Playskool Heroes Transformers Rescue Bots Beam Box Game System:

          My son loves to play Rescue Bots. He is always asking to turn off the TV and play HIS game. It takes a little time to get used to the control but when I remember the look on his face the first time he played it was worth the effort. He always wants to play games with the older kids but their games are to difficult so I was glad to find this system for him. I received the Transformers Rescue Bots Beam Box Game System free because I am a BuzzAgent.

          We received Playskool Heroes Transformers Rescue Bots Beam Box Game System from BzzAgent to test and review. I must say this is such an amazing product for toddlers. As a parent, my concern always is that my kids get to play video games that are intellectual, that challenge their skills, and most importantly, non-violent. Just seeing Optimus Prime still in the box made the kiddos really excited. It was also too easy to set-up!
          Once we got it all set-up, my 2- and 4-year old were hooked. They squeal and cheer every time Optimus Prime would disappear from the console and beam up on TV. The games are very engaging. I was even surprised to see my husband playing it already when he was just supposed to show the 2 boys how to use the controls. Oh well, boys will be boys.

          I received the Rescue Bot Beam Box free through BzzAgent to test/review.

          Overall I would say this is best suited for the 3-5 age group that doesn't have a ton of game system experience, however my 5 year old tired of it quickly. He has 2 older brothers (9 and 13) so perhaps he is just used to playing on the Wii or XBOX like the big boys.
