Our boys have found a new love for the KRE-O TRANSFORMERS building sets. Hasbro’s KRE-O TRANSFORMERS sets lets kids build their TRANSFORMERS characters into either robot or vehicle modes – using the same bricks! Plus, each set comes with fun KREON figures, featuring your favorite Autobots and Decepticons. KRE-O is a fun activity for kids and will definitely be one of the first gifts to be played with once the presents are unwrapped.

The KRE-O TRANSFORMERS sets make the perfect gifts for your child to open up on Christmas morning. The Destruction Site Devastator set is the ultimate gift for advanced builders ages 8 & up! Kids can build four construction vehicles, four Construction robots, or the massive Decepticon robot Devastator. It’s a gift guaranteed to make your child squeal with joy once it’s unwrapped!

KRE-O Transformers Sets also make great stocking stuffers! Smaller sets like the Cycle Chase set and Deception Ambush set are great for beginning builders, ages 6 & up. The Battle for Energon set includes pieces to build two of the most iconic Transformers characters – heroic Optimus Prime and evil Megatron – all in one set. The KREON Micro-Changers Mystery Bags are another great stocking stuffer. For just $2.99, each Mystery Bag contains a random KREON figure, which can also convert into an alternate mode like a jet or an insect.

You can follow KRE-O on Facebook and Twitter.


This Christmas, our boys are gonna be so excited when they open their presents and find a variety of different KRE-O TRANSFORMERS sets. They were so excited about the sets we received and had such a fun time playing with them that we decided to get them more sets for Christmas. I love that they use both their imagination and mind to build these robots and sets. Plus, they can use the bricks afterwards to build anything else they can imagine.
