With our busy schedules, family time is precious to us. Mike does shift work, so he’s not always able to be home when we’d like due to his schedule. Because of this, he makes an extra effort to have time with Sam, creating memories, whenever he is able.

This week, Mike and Sam used their creativity and imaginations to create some awesome characters with KRE-O Transformers: Age of Extinction kits. This PTPA award winning set features characters straight from the film, so kids can create their own Transformers world. Since they’re also compatible with other major brands {like LEGO} the possibilities for creation are endless!

Mike and Sam often build together. It was great to see Sam’s creativity using the KRE-O kits, which were a new medium for him. You could see him thinking ahead and planning as he built. When he ran into an unexpected roadblock, Sam would enlist help from Mike to solve the issue. I love watching them work as a team. I really was happy Sam enjoyed his KRE-O kit so much. Since he’s four, he did need some help from Mike to put things together while building. Before too long, he’ll definitely be able to do it alone. Now that he has several characters put together, I think they will be a great option for him to play with alone while I’m working on a project. I hate just setting him in front of the TV, so I’m always looking for great toy options to keep him busy if I do have a quick work project.

While Sam isn’t old enough to see the Transformers movie yet, I know that kids who have seen the movie will LOVE these kits. It’s always great to play with familiar characters. Even if your kids haven’t seen the movie, they will still love to use their imaginations to create and build with these awesome KRE-O kits!

He has taught her that it’s okay to jump first and look later, to wear a dirty shirt to the park and to decide that today is a good day to take a nap in your rubber boots.
