Looked a good quality toy.  The instructions were clear and easy to read. My son really enjoyed this product.  It was simple to open and access.  He quickly found the pieces of the dinosaur and didn’t have any trouble assembling it together.  It wasn’t too easy either. My son really enjoyed finding the surprises inside the reusable dino dirt. The dino dirt was novel and my son like digging and squishing the dirt to get to the surprise. My son really enjoyed excavating the Triceratops skeleton.  He was able to look at all the different parts of the skeleton and think about how it assembled together. The dino dact sheet was a useful addition to talk to my son about Triceratops and dinosaurs in general.  My child enjoyed putting together the mini skeleton model.  The dino dirt was interesting as he had never seen anything like it before.  He liked looking at the little shapes and crystals in the dino dirt.  My son enjoyed squishing the dino dirt into the volcano shape.  He loved playing with the dirt and that was one of his favourite parts of the toy. The toy kept my child entertained and helped them learn about dinosaurs.  The fossils allowed my son to think about dinosaurs as animals and link to what he knows about this own body. For my son the best part of the toy was the dino dirt.  It was novel, different and engaging for my child to play with. He liked pulling and squashing the dirt. The small particles were worth talking about and became a focal point of the experience as a whole. I like the fact it kept my son engaged for ages. It also was educational and prompted different discussions around skeletons, dinosaurs and volcanoes. The age is appropriate for the toy as the youngest can play with the dino dirt and the oldest can talk about skeletons and dino facts. I agree this toy is value for money. The quality is extremely good. I would buy this model myself purely for the squishable dino dirt and to have more of it. I would recommend this friends and family as a novel toy that engages children on many different levels from the surprise, the skeleton and the fantastic dino dirt. I will give this product 5/5.  It is an interesting and engaging product. The novel dino dirt was really fun to play with.  The skeleton was interesting and easy to assemble. It was fun finding the surprise and talking to my son about dino facts.

The product packing and concept is fantastic. The boys were so excited to open it and get digging. Instructions straightforward and easy to understand. The dinosaur skeleton was easy to assemble however the digging sand we found quite hard to scoop away as it had quite a sticky consistency and didn’t want to seperate. The boys loved finding treasure as they called it and were so excited when they found the dinosaur skeleton. We love dinosaurs in this house and they loved finding the skeleton. I had to bury it multiple times for them to find and build again. Even though the sand was sticky and a little difficult to dig this didn’t stop them. We loved doing the moulds and looking carefully at the fossils we had made. The boys couldn’t quite build the skeleton on their own but with a little adult help they did it. My boys loved the dino dirt and how it could be sculptured. They loved this and did it multiple times and they loved looking at the fossils they even made their own little shapes. My youngest wasn’t too keen on the sticky feeling but my 5 year old didn’t mind at all. This certainly kept them entertained and finding out more about dinosaurs.  They have used this multiple times and they both keep asking to see if we can get different ones with different dinosaur skeletons in side so we have a family of dinosaurs. They loved fossil moulds and the dinosaur skeleton. The dinosaur skeleton has taken pride of place on their bedroom shelf. I loved that it was a sensory toy and it had different aspects to it. Digging, making fossils and even a dinosaur skeleton to build. Hours of fun in one little kit. This is definitely age appropriate for 4- 8 year olds.  Great value as we have played with it so many times and it’s different. The volcano the kit comes in is of Excellent quality and can even be used as a display item on a dinosaur shelf. The sand itself I found a little sticky but this didn’t seem to bother my 5 year old. The fossil moulds are an excellent idea and so was the diamond makes the children feel like they have won some treasure. The skeleton is also good quality and once built it is sturdy. Most definitely would buy this.  My boys have already asked for more sets with different skeletons. They are top of the Christmas list. I would recommend as it is a brilliant sensory product.  Excellent product for sensory play with multiple things to do. Encourages children to learn about dinosaurs. Only reason for not giving full marks is due to the stickiness of the sand. Excellent product that is value for money. It encourages children to have imaginative play. It is a sensory item that you can have hours of play with. Some interesting dinosaur facts for the keen Dino fans and a brilliant little dinosaur skeleton. Gemma Lewis-Evans – Corey & Connor 3 & 5 Years

Looked a good interesting toy when arrived. The instructions are easy to follow, my 8 year old was able to follow these by himself. My son did find this easy to make. My son loved the feel of the dino dirt and finding the items inside. He enjoyed making the dinosaur once all the parts were found. He certainly enjoyed excavating the Triceratops skeleton and learning more about dinosaurs. The skeleton was quite difficult to put together. My son enjoyed moulding the dino dirt and it was easy to manoeuvre compared other similar products that we have used. My son loved the feel of the dirt. This product did keep my son entertained for a few hours. My son liked the dino dirt with it being mouldable and stretchy. I do think this was age appropriate for my son. This was easy to follow and easy to do with minimal parental input. I feel that it was OK for the value for money but maybe a better quality dinosaur might warrant the price a bit more. Good quality. If I saw it on offer I would buy this.  I would also recommend if the price was lower. Great product that kept my son entertained.  He was able to play with this independently and loved finding the items in the dino dirt. He needed my help to build the dinosaur but other than that it was good. I feel for the price a better quality dinosaur that you could stand up once made would be better value for your money.
