Transforming toys have delighted kids since they hit the market in the early 1980s. There is just something about toys that shift from vehicle to creature or robot that kids cannot resist. There are plenty of transforming toys available, but Alpha Toys has taken things to a new level with Screechers Wild!
Screechers, based of the new animated YouTube show, are vehicles that transform into menacing creatures with 360-degree flip morphing action. Wave One has a variety of styles to choose from with each vehicle categorized as Level 1, Level 2, or Level 3. Level 1 Screechers come with two discs to activate the morphing action and Level 2 models come with four discs. Level 3 vehicles take the fun to new heights with double-morphing action as they can catch two discs at once for a bigger transformation. You can find Screechers Wild! at Walmart, Target, Toys “R” Us, and Amazon. More Waves will be released this spring.
I received the RevAdactyl – Level 1 and Smokey – Level 2 to review. Both have great details and kind of a retro look. They also seem pretty durably made so I don’t worry about them breaking too easily. I have a house full of boys, so it goes without saying that the Screechers were a hit. The boys had never seen the animated show until we received these toys. Now that they have, they talk about it nonstop.
Unlike traditional morphing toys that pretty much require an engineering degree to transform them, Screechers just need a little “fuel-injected feeding” to change into beast-powered creatures. The vehicles transform when you launch them at the discs or when you fire the discs at them. Shifting the creature back into a vehicle is super simple. Once transformed back, kids can flip a lever on the bottom to keep them in vehicle mode. There are also two disc launchers available, which the boys are begging for. Screechers Wild! toys are definitely entertaining and kids will love recreating their favorite scenes from the show. The videos are available here.
