Tomy Dinosaur Train InterAction Toys: Video Review

Well I gave you a sneak preview yesterday with a few pictures to whet your appetite but today I am back with the video review.

Here you can see the dinosaurs in action.  I have done a little introduction first of the characters we were sent, then you can watch my boys enjoying playing with them.  Their fits of giggles says it all really, they have had some fun dinosaur adventures, youngest was a little heavy on the "bashing" (but then it does demonstrate they can survive heavy handed play!).

Eldest tends to play with purpose, usually the dinosaurs go off in search of food and he likes to use them realistically.  Youngest is wilder; the dinosaurs will do whatever he likes, at one point as you actually saw in the video he is making Boris do gun noises!  But what it shows quite clearly is the age range it appeals to, my eldest is a mature five year old and my youngest an adorable handful aged three, but both have been hugely entertained with what the toys have to offer.

I have been very impressed with the interactive features of the toys; they all have plenty to say, they respond appropriately to headbutts from Tank and tail whooshes from Morris, alongside the singing and regular chatting.  They seem quite advanced toys, if anything the only problem Tomy have created is making any other dinosaurs my pair own seem very boring in comparison!

I will give another update when they are officially released so you know where you can get your hands on them.


  1. I love TOMY's interactive toys, and these are another fab creation! Can't wait for them to come out!

  2. These look great (and very durable). I think my littlest would love them. I like the Pterodactyl the best especially the noise the wings make

  3. Wow, these look AMAZING!!! Lara saw the photo of them a couple of days ago and was intrigued, now she's just watched the video with me and is DESPERATE for all of them! They will be added to the birthday wish list immediately!

  4. What a fab idea, the bright colours are fab and love that they can appeal to different ages too! I look forward to playing with them when we can come and stay...inside all of us is a big kid! x

  5. they look great! my children would love these as they love watching them on tv :) great video showing them interacting together! fab x

  6. These look good, I like the way they interact with each other! Good job they are sturdy too!
