Bigfoot the Monster Toy Cute or Scary?

Now I love toys and I love to share them here on my blog with parents looking for Gift Ideas.  The other day I was shopping in Target with my mother in law and I stopped to look at the Toys while I was there as I always do. Kid at heart I guess and I like to see everything. So I saw this Bigfoot Foot Monster Toy by Fisher Price Imaginext in a Clear Bubble on a end cap. So of course I went over to investigate and see what it was.

At first glance it looked sorta cute I guess, but then I Hit the Big Button that said “Try Me” – I am such a sucker.   Then it came alive and started grunting. moving and then banging on the plastic bubble it was in.  It then says “Hey Buddy Wanna Play?” – I am like Uh No I want to run. It was SCARY. I stood there watching this thing thinking if this was around when my kids were young my daughter would have run away crying.

Stupid me took a picture instead of a video because I had to show it to my husband, but I guess I was not alone thinking this toy is crazy and others did take a video. Check it out and see what you think:

Now I watch the Video and laugh so hard, but I tell ya when I was standing there the first time it was frightening.  I felt like it was trying to get out and come after me. If you are in Target or another Toy Store where this is on display you have to Hit that Button and see for yourself.

So will this be a Hot Toy this year, yeah Maybe it will appeal to a large number of Boys out there. I am not sure it would have for my son when he was young or maybe the fact that it is controlled by a remote control and he could have harassed his little sister who would have been scared to death would have appealed to him.

So what excatly does this Remote Controlled Bigfoot Monster Toy Do?

  • The Imaginext Big Foot includes a remote control, ball, speech and lots of personality
  • Remote toggle allows him to walk forward and backwards and the six buttons are happy, angry, sleep, fun, ball, and exercise
  • Hear him roar and watch him pound his fists or raise his arms above his head and shake his fists
  • Press the ball button and hear him say things like “play” and watch him throw the ball
  • Press the button on his belly and hear him laugh, the button in his mouth makes him chew and burp (don’t worry, he remembers to say “excuse me”)

You can Purchase this Bigfoot the Monster Toy on Amazon for about $100 Here:

Now I did find this cute animated Video of Bigfoot the Monster which I think he looks super cute. It is called Bigfoot and the Ball. I think I like him better in animation. Take a Look:

I am curious to know what you think:

  1. I think he is absolutely adorable although I haven’t seen him the store yet. I watched a video on Utube about him. Believe it or not, he even has bad dreams when he sleeps and burps and has gas, but he always says excuse me afterwards. If I were a kid, I sure would have liked to get him for a present!

    Clearly he’s super cute but with enough emotional range to keep the kids occupied. Just like a child he can be happy or sad, get angry or laugh.

  3. Karen says:

    My three year old son is terrified of this toy. He has only seen the commercial and the active display at a store once. It has already given him nightmares. He doesn’t want to go to the toy section of the store for fear the “monkey monster” will be there.
    So, although it may not be too scary for some children, it was too scary for my child.

  4. I am an adult and I am scared of it – lol

    I think bigfoot’s huge eyebrows add to his sense of menace. He’s less scary in the animation than in real life but it is a cool toy…

  6. This is a great toy. Bigfoot Imagenext Monster may not be suitable for younger children, but great for older kids. As for the actions he preforms, are these not the actions we see Bigfoot do on tv? Imagenext can do a lot more than most remote control toys can. As Tony the Tiger once said, great.
