They are very easy to transform.
Super Mom
My 3.5 year old loves his Rescue Bots and they are easy enough for him to transform on his own!

This run, the basic model of Rescue Bots, is no longer on store shelves.

My son loves this rescue bot. However, I would not pay $30 for it. I bought it at WMT for $12.

I'm writing this for multiple reasons, the first of which is to address some peoples complaints about the price. I hope I either save someone some effort/heartache or explain why some of these Rescue Bots are as pricey as they are.

This run, the basic model of Rescue Bots, is no longer on store shelves. The new "Rescue Bots Energize!" is replacing them. I noticed this problem about a month ago, as I was trying to complete my sons set (More on that soon), and where once I could very easily find Optimus Prime, Bumblebee, and even the more rare Hoist in our local Walmart, this is no longer the case. During the holiday season, I traveled from Northeastern Kansas, to southern Illinois, into Kentucky and Indiana, and I stopped at many stores that previously would've carried these toys hoping to come across one at "Retail" price.

That being said, the "Product Dimensions" are misleading, as it includes packaging. The toy itself is about 6 inches high.

On to the toy, and toy line itself. My son turned 3 on January 9th, and currently has a complete set of these transformers (except Bumblebee and Optimus Prime, those two he has the Energize! version, a problem for me but not for him, I'll fix that soon enough though!)

He plays with them daily, sometimes for an hour or more in one sitting. He can easily transform all of them with the exception of Medix, but I'm sure he'll get that one soon enough. They are durable, colorful, enhance motor skills, and many of them come with a DVD of the show, which is also excellent.
Most of all, they're FUN. My 9 year old daughter loves to play with them, though sometimes this leads to fights, especially if it's one of his favorites ("Awesomus Prime)

I honestly cannot recommend these toys enough.

We are looking forward to seeing Hoist the Tow Bot on future shows. He hasn't made his appearance yet, but we create scenarios to include this action figure in our play stage. Our son has used and reused over and over those bot characters and while we fear they would break, we are surprised to see how much pressure those uniquely designed toys can handle. If your child is as strong and rough as our son, you will not hesitate to pay a fair price on a well made toy. Besides, as part of the rescue team, they should work together. Why not add to the collection!!!

My 4 year old newphew has started collecting these rescue bots, and we wanted to get him a few for christmas to jump start his collection, and the stores were wiped out around christmas time, so faithful amazon had just what we were looking for. This tow bot was nowhere to be seen at all, so im so glad we were able to find him on amazon. They are they coolest little transformers for little boys. We have a 3 year old little boy who was none the wiser to rescue bots until his cousin introduced these at christmas, and he loves them as well. I love things that my kids can collect and were excited to start him his own collection. These little transformers really do function too, they roll just like a toy car. Which is a big reason our son loves them. If it doesnt do something hes not interested. So the fact he transformes from a bot to a tow truck and he can actually play him in tow truck mode is very exciting to his little 3 year old mind. The only thing i would caution is amazons prices are not always reflecting the correct price on these toys. Ive seen them for$ 20 to$ 25and tnese toys usually in the stores run from about $12 to $15 but if you just wait amazons prices usually level out and they go back down to the normal price.

Absolutely ridiculous to put this high of a price on it because it's the last one. You should be ashamed of yourself! I hope no one is foolish enough to buy this.

We picked up with toy on a whim while shopping. So happy we did. My son who loves transformers loves this toy. He can easily transform it himself. He loves that he can tow his over trucks and toys on it. He has transformers but they are difficult for him to change or the pieces come apart and make him frustrated. I am sure he will like them when he is older, but for now this is fantastic.
I hope they are discontinuing them. I went to find another one in the same store and they didn't have them any more. The prices on Amazon at the moment are ALot more than we paid for it in the store.

Ok, we just discovered these bigger transformers for toddlers and we love them! My son is 2, and he calls his his "truck" and then transforms it and calls it his "robot". He makes all the sound effects and drives it all over the furniture. We've since bought other stuff in the same toy line and it's all been VERY sturdy and lots of fun.
