The product was well presented in the box, general appearance was eye-catching and engaged a sense of curiosity in my boy, who very quickly became very excited to open it up. This toy has a lot of scope, helping children to delve into a variety of subjects – history – the different types of dinosaurs (supported by pictures in the book), science – general anatomy, magnetism, evolution/extinction (age appropriate, of course) while also giving them opportunities to develop hand-eye coordination and focus and concentration skills. I liked the simplicity of the toy and the open-endedness of what it could offer. I think not giving the toy a facial expression helped to prevent the child from making assumptions, which supported various play opportunities – for example, a smile on the toy would, perhaps, have encouraged children to make the dinosaur ‘friendly’, while jagged teeth would have resulted in a ‘fierce, angry’ dinosaur. With no facial expression, children had the opportunity to mix and match the character of the dinosaur. The toy is pretty self-explanatory, and instructions aren’t necessarily required; a picture is absolutely the best and most straightforward way to show how the dinosaur is build. The shape and size of the toy was perfect for my boy’s hands and he could grasp it very comfortably. What I liked was how strong the magnets were so that it didn’t come apart really easily when held or grasped tightly. It has clearly been designed ergonomically and is simple and comfortable for little hands, with smooth edges and appropriately sized skeleton pieces. It took a few times of modelling how it was done before my son could do it independently, but still with an appropriate level of challenge. The hardest thing was attaching each piece to each other, as that could, at times, become a bit fiddly, however the fact that the ‘bones’ fit so snugly into the outer casing made it much easier to do without pieces falling everywhere.  My child enjoyed playing with this toy.  In truth, the ‘assembly’ part was reasonably short-lived, and once it was done a couple of times, he was done with that part of the play, however the dinosaur then became part of imaginary play and the time playing with the product continued. My son enjoyed playing with this toy at various points, and would pick it up himself to play with, without prompting or reminding The colour of the product was also eye-catching and therefore helped the toy to stand out among others, which contributed to the amount of self-directed play. Absolutely helps build hand eye coordination. It has an appropriate level of challenge, and is achievable in a reasonably short period of time, allowing the child to develop their patience but experience success without too much time elapsing. Hand-eye coordination is definitely supported with this toy, and it was interested to see how it developed over the course of playing with the  toy over a number of days. This toy allowed my son to develop his own imaginary play opportunities; having the pictures in the story book helped to contribute to this also. The comfortable shape and size of the toy also contribute to walking and roaring movements when playing. As mentioned previously, the lack of facial expression helped to contribute towards different play opportunities, with the dinosaur assuming different characters at different times. When first received, this toy was played with a number of times across the course of the day. Over time, the amount of time played with the toy reduced, once a day some days, then every couple of days, and is now played with now and again. It is, by no means, however, a toy that sits at the bottom of a box unloved and unplayed with. In comparison to other toys, it is within the more ‘popular’ band. This toy stayed in the home at all times. I was reluctant to bring it out and about for fear of losing some of the inside pieces. It now stays in the play room at home. I liked how strong the magnet was and felt the toy was sized perfectly for the age and size of my son. It is an unusual and unique toy, which certainly appealed to my son and I enjoyed the fact that it was made from materials that could be recycled. I also liked the open-endedness of the toy and how it could be used in a variety of ways and in a variety of places. The fact that it didn’t have batteries or metal parts meant that my son could play with it in the bath, which was novel to him and which extended his play further. I also liked that it was a toy that needed little to no instruction. Many people played with this with my son, and all were pleasantly surprised when they pulled it apart to find a skeleton puzzle. My son liked the fact that it was a dinosaur and that he could make it ‘walk’ quite easily. This was something he did quite a lot with it, making it roar etc along the way. He also got quite excited by opening it up and seeing the bones inside and was certainly engaged by building the skeleton back together again on a number of occasions. As mentioned previously, using the dinosaur as a bath toy also absolutely appealed to my son and he thoroughly enjoyed dinosaur adventures in the bath. The quality of the dinosaur itself was excellent and there is nothing that stood out to me as requiring improvement. I was exceptionally disappointed by the book, however. It was loaded with grammatical errors, particularly punctuation. While my son is still young and would not understand the presence of terrible grammar, it was still not something I wished to expose him to. Perhaps it is the teacher in me, and it wouldn’t matter so much to others, but I felt there was a huge disparity between the quality of the toy and the quality of the book, which I feel requires addressing. I will say, however, that I liked how the book was bound by a ring, as it made it very child friendly and also engaged curiosity. I think the toy is very reasonably priced and provided a lot of play opportunities. I would consider buying the toy, or other members of the ‘family’, however, I feel that the book would be better off being a set of pictures/play prompts rather than a story. I would recommend the dinosaur toy itself, but currently, if I were to recommend it, it would come with a warning about the quality of the book. There are many positive things that I have to say to summarise my experience with this toy: I felt this toy was very engaging and my 3.5 year old son was at a good stage whereby he could complete the puzzle himself and feel that sense of accomplishment. I am confident that children younger than that would experience the same levels of success. I liked the open-endedness of the toy and how it allowed for a range of play opportunities. I liked the lack of batteries/metal pieces. The strength of the magnet was great – strong enough to make the toy sturdy, but not so strong that it couldn’t be opened by my son independently. The colour was eye-catching but not gaudy and ‘in your face’. The shape and size of both the skins and the skeleton was great and very child friendly. The general concept of the toy is unusual and interesting and encourages questioning and curiosity from the child. Siobhra Cran – Sionnach 3 Years

When this arrived it looked a quality toy. I thought it was a nice Idea with the book but unfortunately we didn’t receive the matching book, it was for a different dinosaur toy. Instructions were very clear. This toy was just the right size for my son’s little hands to hold. My son was able to pull it apart and assemble easily enough. My son enjoyed playing with this for a short time.  I do agree this helps build hand eye coordination for younger children especially. I would not say this is especially a creative toy.  My son did play with it imaginatively in conjunction with some other toys. He played with it a couple of times after we had received it. Mostly played with this in his bedroom with some other dinosaur toys.  I liked that it was put together with magnets rather than clipping in place. I liked the idea that you could read the matching book alongside it though we didn’t receive this. My son liked pulling it apart and putting it back together again.  This is a good quality toy. I think it is a bit on the expensive side for a small toy.  Perhaps if I saw it on offer would buy as a gift.  Personally I would not particularly recommend this as did not stand out for me. My son enjoyed playing with the toy but lost interest after a couple of days. I would have liked to have received the matching book to see how he would have reacted to the story about the toy that he had. Lisa Jones – Freddie 4 Years

Part of the Toy had dislodged in the packaging. So didn’t look as professional as it should have  initially I thought it was too easy for my 4 yr. old and was slightly concerned about small parts. I liked it and was looking to buy more of the set especially liked the idea of a story to go along g with it. Instructions very easy to follow.  My daughter found this very easy to hold.  She found it easy enough to assemble.  She did enjoy playing with it for the first day and was keen to show it off to her Gran – however as the feet are a little bit tricky she struggled and kind of got bit bored of it after a short time. I do agree this helps build hand eye coordination, but not sure it holds a child’s attention enough. I would not say this was a creative toy and my daughter concentrated more on putting it together. She played with this for a few days and after that only when I purposely put it out for her so I could review it! This was mainly played with in the living room. I liked the idea of it building her skills and puzzle solving.  My daughter enjoyed taking this apart. The quality of this is excellent.  Personally I feel this is expensive for what it is.  I would not buy this as too expensive, doesn’t hold imagination , weak story book. I would recommend if I saw it available on special offer. Love the idea, packaging doesn’t hold you. Not sure it’s suitable for any younger than 4 years and overpriced. Heather Wilson – Grace 4 years
