WOW Toys Jurassic Jimmy Review

Youngest was so thrilled when Jurassic Jimmy finally arrived for him to review!  The toy is pitched for children 1 and a half to 5, so being 4 and 5 my boys were at the upper end of the age recommendation.  The pieces are chunky but apart from that they still hold lots of potential for my two. 

The cardboard scenic backdrop even came into play.  The dinosaurs had to escape from the erupting volcano, before the lava covered them!  Luckily the water on the picture helped cool it down according to them.  Then they were busy transporting the egg to another area, as supposedly it did not belong where it was… at one point I had the luxury of sitting with a virtual ice cream and cup of tea for the stage show (although other characters came along for the performance including a giant squid!).

Trying to hatch the dinosaur egg...

The stickers on the inside of the car and the egg added to the imaginative play.  My boys were giving the baby dinosaurs food, a bath and playtime according to the stickers around the inside of the egg.  The dinosaur theme is always popular for children, so I think WOW Toys are on to a winner with this pack.

I was impressed with the quality of the toy, it seems exceptionally well made and if mine were only 1 and a half I would have felt safe for them to play with it.  The pieces are a good size for little ones to get a grip on them.  You do not need to worry about constantly replacing batteries, as it requires none.  It has surprisingly strong traction and moves a fair distance once you give it a little nudge in the right direction!

It is a real bargain at the moment for only £7.93 from Argos; it would make a lovely present for any child up to five, a good alternative for chocolate at Easter at that price!
