Setting Up Inside this egg is one of 28 dinosaurs which are part of a series to collect. You remove both layers of plastic coating around the egg and place in warm water. This works well as a visual event, so find a clear container to use so you can see the egg fizzing and dissolving.
In Play Henry is dinosaur mad and was very keen to try this out. We dissolved the egg when friends were round and all 3 young boys enjoyed watching the egg fizz and froth.
At the end you get a small dinosaur with detachable bits: 4 limbs, a head, a body and a tail. The bits are easy to manoeuvre and you can mix and match dinosaurs from the same collection to make your own dinosaurs. This proved hugely popular and occupied much playtime.
What stopped play? You do need to be careful about getting the bits out of the water as they are quite small. I’d suggest using a colander over a bowl to make sure nothing is lost.
My dinosaur expert pointed out that one of his dinosaurs was not the one mentioned on the packaging, but another closely related dinosaur. I think he was right, but I won’t bore you with the details. This didn’t impact on his enjoyment though.
Price and Availability They are available from Find Me A Gift for £4.99 each.
Overall A nice idea as either a party bag gift or for a small birthday present.
