20 Best Transformer Toys For Kids

From action figures to garages we take a look at them all

Most of us remember Transformers as a favorite Saturday morning cartoon. Others remember the Transformer toys as the best action figures around. Today kids and adults alike have flocked to the movies making them one of the most popular movie franchises in the 21st Century. The Transformer movie series does not follow the cartoon series of our childhood, but the movies are filled with some of our favorite Autobots and Decepticons in endless battles using their superior alien technology.

With how popular the movies were it should come as no surprise that the beloved robots were brought back into new cartoon series. The animated television episodes are geared for kids of all ages. Transformers: Rescue Bots is geared more for younger children, think preschool age. Transformers: Prime and Transformers: Robots in Disguise are geared more for older children and perhaps even some Transformer loving adults as well.

With how popular the movies and cartoons are you shouldn’t be shocked to learn about the various toy lines. Each movie and cartoon series has its own unique line of Transformer toys that are popular with certain age groups.
