What Does Big Foot the Monster Do?

Over 80 Functions and Phrases!

Let's take a look at some of the cool and secret things Big Foot the Monster does.

WALK: The Big Foot the Monster toy walks forward and backward. Simply press and hold the forward button and Big Foot the Monster sings himself a little ditty and "walks" forward using his fists to lift his feet, setting his feet down, and repeating. Press and hold the back button and Big Foot the Monster exclaims "backing up!" and then comically yells "beep..beep..beep" as he walks backward with his hands.

Happy and Angry

Big Foot can be a Moody Little Guy!

Big Foot the Monster can be as moody as any child wants.

HAPPY: Press and hold the happy button (resembling a smile) and Big Foot the Monster will be so happy he sings himself a happy little tune. It goes a little something like this:

"Buddy! Big Foot! I'm a Big Foot and I got big feet. I dance and a-wiggle to the happy beat. BIG FOOT!"

ANGRY: I'd never want to see an angry Big Foot Monster in real life, but the Big Foot Monster Toy isn't so scary. Press and hold the angry button on the remote control and Big Foot will get mad. He says, "ANGRY!" and then lays down on his tummy, cries, and bangs his fists and feet on the floor in a BIG FOOT sized temper tantrum. Luckily he gets over it quickly and promptly rises to his feet with a better attitude!

Big Foot Rap

RAP: Press and hold the "fun" button in the center of the remote control and Big Foot does a very cool "rap". While he doesn't have much to say in the way of lyrics there is a great beat with all kinds of fun sound effects to accompany it. This button is sure to get pressed a lot by fun loving kids.

Feed Big Foot

FEED: Big Foot needs to eat to. Place the included leaf in Big Foot the Monster's mouth and he'll tell you whether he likes his meal or not. Kids are sure to have plenty of fun feeding their new friend.

Big Foot the Monster Exercises!

EXERCISE: Everyone needs to exercise, even Big Foot the Monster! Press and hold the exercise button and Big Foot does 5 reps of his special Big Foot exercise.

EXERCISE TIRED: After pressing the exercise button twice and putting Big Foot through 2 consecutive exercises, press the exercise button a third time for a special surprise. Big Foot starts his exercise and then suddenly we hear a cracking sound and Big Foot replies "ouch!". Looks like Big Foot may have over done it! Maybe he needs a Chiropractor?

Play Ball!

Watch Big Foot throw his ball!

BALL: Put Big Foot's red ball in his hand and press down on his thumb to secure it. Press the ball button and Big Foot throws his ball underhand and we soon hear the sounds of bowling pins being struck. You could set up your own bowling lane with this fun guy.

Rolling, Headstands, and Sneezing, OH MY!

More Big Foot the Monster Fun.

Big Foot loves to roll and have more physical comedy fun.

ROLL FORWARD: Press and hold the "roll" button and Big Foot does a forward somersault.

ROLL BACKWARD: Press the "roll" button once and Big Foot rolls backwards.

HEADSTAND: After you've watched Big Foot roll backward, press the "roll" button again and watch Big Foot do a headstand. He'll then stand back up and say "TA-DAH!"

BIG SNEEZE: Press the "roll" button a third time and Big Foot suffers a BIG sneeze. "Ah-Ah...Ah-CHOO!" It's such a BIG sneeze Big Foot falls backward and we hear cuckoo clock sound effects. Looks like Big Foot's big sneeze knocked him backward and gave him a BIG headache!

Sleep, Dream, and Wake Up

Big guys need sleep too!

Even Big Foot has to slow down and rest. Check out some of the cool sleep related functions our hairy friend has.

SLEEP: Press and hold the "sleep" button and Big Foot will lay down and go to sleep. He even starts to snore with his feet moving up and down in perfect synchronization.

DREAM: Press the "happy" button while Big Foot is snoozing and you'll hear him dream about a tasty treat....an ice cream truck!

WAKE UP: After letting Big Foot get some rest kids will soon want to wake him up to start the fun all over again. Simply press and hold the forward walk button and we hear a rooster crow "cock-a-doodle-dooo!" and Big Foot rises to his feet ready to get started with BIG fun once again.

5 Things I like about the Big Foot the Monster toy.

Here are 5 things I like about Big Foot. Of course these are only my opinions as a parent and everyone has their own opinion.

  1. It's Fun!
  2. The easy to use buttons require no reading.
  3. Rechargeable batteries with a battery charger means less money spent on batteries. (The wireless remote does require 2 AA batteries)
  4. Big Foot is a good influence because he exercises!
  5. Big foot's controls are easy to learn and easy to master by even the youngest users in the recommended 3-8 year old age range.

5 Things I Don't Like About the Big Foot the Monster toy

As much as I hate to point out negative aspects of a product, I also wanted to provide an honest opinion for many parents and children out there. After all, Big Foot costs a decent chunk of change! The following observations are simply my thoughts based on my opinion and observations of the toy over a short period of time. Everyone has their own opinion and with that in mind, here are 5 things about the Big Foot Monster toy I'm not crazy about.

  1. The price tag is a little high. The $99.99 retail price is a little steep, but I have noticed it coming down about 10 or 15% from that range in the past weeks.
  2. I think Big Foot gets a little redundant. Of course I'm an adult so it's perfectly possible this toy will entertain children for a long time.
  3. Big Foot the monster doesn't really walk. He "walks" by walking on his hands. I was disappointed to see him walk around by lifting himself with his hands and setting himself back down. Big Foot should stomp around on those big feet!
  4. The big foot rap isn't really a rap. It's just a great beat with some funny sound effects. This was a missed opportunity to give Big Foot the Monster some hilarious lyrics.
  5. Although the recommended age group is 3-8, I'm not sure how long it would maintain its appeal with the older kids in that range. Although 7 and 8 year olds may be entertained with this for a short time I think it may be short lived.

      @scss: Thanks for finding this lens and appreciating it. It's probably my least popular lens. While I'd like to think its lensrank and popularity will improve, I seriously doubt that will happen. Since The Big Foot Monster was popular last year I doubt it will be anywhere near as popular for Christmas of 2011. The good news is with the dwindling popularity comes more affordable prices. I've seen this guy routinely selling for half what he was last year and at times as low as about 25% of last year's $100 price tag.

      Thanks again!

      This is one of the very best Big foot toy lenses I have seen. I hope it gets to rank much higher soon for you and does really well for Christmas.
