With the holidays over and Santa safely back at the North Pole, whom can children drag their parents out to see now? How about a Transformer?
In a tie-in with "Bumblebee," in theaters now, the 9-foot-tall Transformer character will visit five area Walmart stores Friday and Saturday as part of an exclusive nationwide tour of 1,000 Walmarts.
The family-friendly interactive tour is a partnership between the chain and Hasbro. Bumblebee will sign autographs, offer high-fives (if fans can reach his hand) and take photos with attendees young and old. One lucky fan at each visit will receive a specially designed $5 Walmart gift card.
