TOMY Dinosaur Train Review and Giveaway

We have reviewed the larger interaction dinosaurs before and they were very well received.  But in our latest delivery we had a selection of the smaller collectible models, my boys were thrilled they love toys this size to add to their battling collection usually.  


Although youngest did keep them all together and enjoy some dinosaur themed role-play with the train involved too.  Although it did not seem the most comfortable of journeys, he sort of rammed them in!  Perhaps dinosaur train were hosting a reduction on ticket prices for a budget experience… 


As these dinosaurs do not come with sounds they rely on the child’s involvement, which is refreshing.  I did enjoy seeing them doing the actions and noises themselves.  Although the train had a light and sound effects that helped with the whole atmosphere of the dinosaur train the rest was my son’s imagination.  Here is a little video to show how much fun he had with them, complete with his own sound effects for the dinosaurs – I was quite impressed with his range!


These are well made and quite detailed figures.  I have a feeling I will be recommending Santa squeezes a few of them into their Christmas stockings, a bargain at £4.99 for 3 figures each time.  I know they will love them and the adventure they come up with give us a moment’s peace to get on with opening our own presents (hint for hubbie the present I crave most begins with an i and ends in pad, wishful thinking!).

You can see more of the dinosaur train toys at the TOMY website and of course you must enter my giveaway for Boris; he is the big man himself!  Not from the little sets but one of the hugely popular interaction dinosaurs I mentioned earlier.  If you fancy winning the charismatic T-Rex then please kindly fill in the rafflecopter below by the 4th of September.
