Transformer Gets Slightly Transformed

We had some friends over tonight, and Elliot was excited to show them his Transformer.

Now, this is a Transformer designed for 3-year-olds, which means it doesn't change too dramatically. There's no way a toddler's limited dexterity could handle the twists and turns that a regular Transformer requires. (Even as a teenager, I struggled to configure my brother's Transformers properly.)

So it's pretty subtle. This is the Transformer as a robot...

...and here it is as a helicopter.

It's less a transformation — something closer to a day-spa makeover.
