He's rarely seen, but he came to visit from ToysRus

He's rarely been spotted, let alone filmed.  But he paid us a special visit from his favourite toy store - ToysRus.  I first became aware that we had a visitor in the house when I heard a rustle behind the curtain.....

He's a shy kinda guy and can make a quick exit

I spied him trying to hide in the twins toys cupboard

and snapped him catching up with his great mate Geoffrey Giraffe

He was feeling less shy and at home in the twins bedroom so we called them upstairs to say HI!

To say that we were thrilled when we saw Bigfoot in our latest box from ToysRus was an understatement! We would never consider or be able to afford to spend that amount of money on a single item for our children and although the price made us gasp, he is worth every single penny !  He's also on sale at the moment at ToysRus !!

Standing about 18 inches high and weighing approx 2 kilos he is a sturdy, solid toy, built for rough and tumble play. 
As you could see from the film, initially Milo was surprised by him and the noise he made, but once they got used to him the twins absolutely adored him.  He has big blue eyes, eyebrows that move and soft fluffy hair which really helps take off the hard edge .

With about 80 actions and sayings he is not one of those toys that has a few stock phrases that you soon get fed up of hearing.  He continually takes you by surprise with his random sayings that can be set off by touching him or by different sequences on the remote control.

The Twins LOVE his TRUMPING and he apologises afterwards too !

He counts, sleeps, tumbles, walks, laughs, roars, rolls his eyes, talks and more.

The remote control is big and really easy to hold and use, no need to be able to read. Large self explanatory buttons so little ones can quickly learn how to control him without tears and tantrums.

"The remote control has a toggle and six buttons. The toggle allows him to walk forward and backwards and the six buttons are happy, angry, sleep, fun, ball, and exercise. Press the happy button to hear him laugh, press the angry button to hear him roar and watch him pound his fists or raise his arms above his head. The sleep button makes him go to sleep and features fun sounds like snoring! Press the ball button and hear him say things like 'play' and watch him throw the ball! Big Foot also features three interaction buttons on his body: belly, mouth and hand."

We absolutely adore him and he has taken pride and place in the twins room.

Recommended for age 3 - 8 that's right on the button although as adults hubby and I had a ball with him too.

Priced at around £100 its a lot of money but then there is a lot to him and compartively we think he's excellent value for money.  Also he's on sale at the moment at ToysRus

Batteries AA batteries required for the controller and a rechargable battery pack is included.  Takes 4 hours to recharge and lasts in Bigfoot for about 2 hours at a time.  Which we found was plenty enough time for one session.



  1. Wow that sounds amazing and we could never afford it either!!!! x

  2. He looks fab... wonder if I can get the Hubby to agree to not buy 3D glasses for the projector and one of these instead...

  3. Thanks for your comment Emma, I know its a lot of money but I will say the boys absolutely LOVE him and so do I. xx

  6. He's great isn't he. It was a lot of money, but i know my 3yr old is gonna love him sooo much.

    Did you know he has his own iPhone app, and if you look on youtube theres a cartoon of him playing and losing his ball.
