I bought TFs as presents for a few kids this past Christmas and from the parents, i got the usual, "he loved it," or "he was excited." then i went back to visit these people. i gave Treadbolt to a 9 year old. asked him how he liked it, and he shrugged his shoulders and grunted- oooh, really lovin' it i see. he brought it to me and asked me to transform it. it took him 3 trips from his room to get it. his legs, his torso and last, wings. and don't bother asking about the accessories. they're gone to the void for all i know. the little bastard tore it apart in less than 2 days. i actually sat there and apologized to a toy. if there is a toy hell, i just saw it. Worse than having your planet eaten by Unicron terrifying. i asked the dad why it was broken or why didn't he save the accessories. he said, why bother? he's broken everything he has. that made up my mind. I am not giving TFs as presents anymore. not to any kid younger than 15. i can't and won't give something away that will only entertain a kid for as long as it takes to yank parts off and throw it into a trash can. Next year, he's getting play-doh. in a zip lock with a lable reading: Please EAT ME. don't you hate it when you know a kid destroyed a TF that you gave as a gift?
