Dinosaur DNA review

If you’ve got a Dinosaur fan then this is definitely a toy that should be on their Christmas wish list this year! We were sent a Stegosaurus Dinosaur DNA kit to review and both children thought it was fantastic. The kits rrp is £14.99 but on offer at £9.99 there’s even more reason to snap one up for Christmas from Ryman Stationary. *Click here to have a little look for yourself* They also have two other dinosaurs – why not collect the set over time?

Age wise it’s aimed at 8+ but Oliver is 7 and it was perfect for him, the instructions were clear but he did need some help to put it all together and obviously take photos!

The block of clay proved a little difficult to get into so Michael had to help – he didn’t mind and thought it was a pretty cool toy. It’s also good that it’s not quick to do because it makes the experience last longer. I’m a little bit silly and didn’t have any newspaper to hand so we had a lot to clean up afterwards! Oopsy. Make sure you’ve got some old newspaper or something that can keep your house clean because it does get very messy with this.

With our kit we discovered 9 pieces of dinosaur plus the DNA code, after helping the children put the dinosaur together it was time to use the interactive play mat – you need to download the app Dinocodes which is free via Apple store or Google play. The App is very easy to use, we were able to release our dinosaur out of the playmat very quickly and we were all impressed with this toy. Both children loved taking photos and Oliver really enjoyed learning interesting facts about dinosaurs. The app is full of fun facts and was pretty cool… have a look at our photos to see for yourself.

I wouldn’t hesitate to suggest this kit to anyone looking for Christmas gifts with children around Oliver’s age. Isabelle loved it too and thought it was very exciting they were allowed to make such a mess.
