Bumblebee Transformer Toys for Little and Big Kids

Updated on April 17, 2013

Transformers Bumblebee Toys for Kids Age 3-18

Are you wondering which Dark of the Moon Bumblebee Transformers toy to get? There's a big range and it's confusing! Here's a detailed overview of the different toys that are available, their features and what age they are suitable for.

Bumblebee is the yellow and black autobot - they are the good guys. He transforms into a Chevrolet Camaro for his vehicle form.

My younger son loves Bumblebee. He's too young to watch the movie (well okay we do let him see short clips) but he was given a small Bumblebee transformer as a gift because yellow is his favorite color. Good call. We have a new Transformers fan!

There are lots of different toys around with different levels of difficultu. It can be hard to work out which is the best one to get for your child. For the most recent toys, look for Transformers 3: Dark of the Moon (DOTM).

We'll start with transformers for younger kids and work our way up to the older kids or you can jump to the right section:

- Little kids

- Small collectible, easy to transform

- Medium to advanced larger transforming

- Lego-like construction for older kids

Robo Power for Little Kids

Younger kids. Action figures and role play.

If you want to buy a Bumblebee transformers for a little kids aged 3+ then this Robo Power Go-Bots Bumblebee is a very good option. It's a pull back car that can race along the floor in either its robot or vehicle form. And it transforms in a single movement.

If you have little kids the complex transformers are likely to cause problems. They will find them hard to transform and get frustrated. The Go Bots Bumblebee is an excellent alternative because it does transform, just in a simple way and it can move too.

This Robo Power Robo Fighters Bumblebee Action Figure DOES NOT CONVERT into a car. For little kids this is wonderful. My three year old is perfectly happy with a Bumblebee that doesn't transform and it avoids frustration. This Bumblee does have a sliding sheild that pops up his canons and hidden weapons that slide out.

These toys have now been around for a while so you should find new and used versions on eBay. We managed to get some bargain sets to add to the sets we bought when they first came out.
