...a little monster with a BIG personality! That’s BIGFOOT! He’s happy. He’s angry. He’s sleepy. He’s fun. He talks and walks and throws a ball, chews and burps and exercises! And kids can bring him to life with an easy-to-use wireless remote control. The symbols on the buttons show you what BIGFOOT will do when you push them -- no reading required! BIGFOOT includes one (7.2Volt) NiMH rechargeable battery and battery charger. Remote Control requires 2 AA alkaline batteries.
Includes Rechargeable battery and charger ($25 Value!)
Product dimensions: 6.5"L x 14.5"W x 12.3"H
Even though we have seen him on display, we've never been able to hold the controller and play with him. We were excited to get him out of the box.
We were quickly disappointed because we had to wait at least 4 hours for him to charge. He comes with a rechargeable battery for his foot, which is awesome, but it is hard making a child wait for 4 hours to be able to play with something. If you're giving this as a gift, you might want to open him up and take the charger and battery out(they're in the white rectangle part on the side of the inside of the box) and charge him so the kids can play right away.
Even after seeing the display, I didn't know that he would throw the ball that is included. I just thought he moved and talked. If you place the ball in his hand, he will "throw" it to you. This is a lot of fun, but Evan gets frustrated because you have to make sure you put the ball "just right" in his hand for Bigfoot to grasp it and he often can't do it. Bigfoot's thumb has to lock onto it before he will throw it. When he throws it, its more of a small toss than a throw, but this makes my kids happy.
Bigfoot also comes with a leaf to eat. Isabella thinks it is so funny to feed him.
The remote control does require 2AA batteries that are *not* included so be sure to have them on hand if this is going to be a gift. Even though he does so much, the remote is very easy to use. It has symbols instead of words so even the smallest player can have a ton of fun with him. The front/back button allows him to walk forward and backwards and the six buttons are happy, angry, sleep, ball, roll, and exercise
Bigfoot has been a huge hit at our house and has taken a ton of abuse, but still works great. He falls hard and is pretty loud, which my kids absolutely love. He does so much more than I even imagined. I was worried that my kids would quickly get over the "wow" factor, but they haven't. They play with him several times a day and we are still seeing him do or say things that we haven't seen before. Watching him do flips is the best part. He can also go front to back, but I wish he could go side to side because we're often bumping him into my poor walls.
