About this deal

And unlike the fossil kit (see above), this set is designed for play, with movable joints, including a working mouth. With a little bit of elbow grease (and their own tools), kids can put together these dinos that have moveable joints. This STEM-friendly set—Tyrannosaurus rex, triceratops, and velociraptor—helps teach motor and problem-solving skills, complete with a small kid-safe power drill. And what kids don’t love a power drill? (Just mine?) Even better, the boat can float, so kids bring the toy in the bath or play with it while using a water table for a more creative experience.

Letting your young kids make the animal noises themselves helps with language development and creativity. “Children learn everything at a young age through play,” says Nuernberger. “Whatever toys you have for your child, the most important thing is to get down to their level and interact and engage with them and the toys.” And as for that T-Rex that says rawr, here’s good news for parents and caregivers: When it comes to speech and language development for younger kids, toys that make noise are not the best option. Yes, you heard us right. Kids (or kids with their grown-ups) will build a 1:32-scale Tyrannosaurus rex, triceratops, and pteranodon, with the T-Rex measuring 15 inches long and 7 inches tall. The finished pieces sit on their own labeled stands for display or play, along with two Lego mini figures: a paleontologist for role-playing and a skeleton (with the label “Lego sapiens”) for laughs. No, you can’t grow your own dinosaur. ( Jurassic Park scientists tried that, and it didn’t go as planned.) But with the Dino World Terrarium Kit, kids can create their own miniature garden (with dino figurines) and watch it grow.The ToyVelt Take Apart Dinosaur set is a good choice for any child who loves to tinker or is in a major dinosaur phase. For the younger crowd, it’s best as a parent-led activity, but for older kids, these dinos could provide hours of entertainment. Experts from the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association (ASHA) concur: “The less a toy does, the more the child can do with it,” according to ASHA. “The more the child can do with it, the more opportunities for interaction it allows.” Quiet for Creativity

The manufacturer suggests this product is for kids over the age of 3. Our son didn’t have any safety issues with the small pieces. However, the screws are tiny, so if your child still likes to put things in their mouth, make sure you watch them closely while playing with this toy. Also, for the younger set, anticipate this being a parent-led activity rather than a free play toy (at least until they get the hang of it). Since the Dinosaur Take Apart toys come apart completely, you can ensure they are thoroughly clean. The best way we’ve found to do it is to take apart the dinosaurs and put the parts in a sink full of warm soapy water. We then let them air dry on a big towel. If your little one wants to get in on the action, giving the dinosaurs a bath can be a fun game in itself. The ToyVelt set comes with six dinosaurs and six tool sets, each with a screwdriver and wrench. Of the six dinosaurs, there are three different kinds: T-Rex, brontosaurus, and triceratops. They all feature brightly colored body parts and red and yellow screws. Among all the parts, and there are a lot (218 in all), there doesn’t seem to be a purpose for the wrenches. You could use them for removing the feet, but the screwdriver works for that as well.Plus, quiet toys are easier on parents’ and caregivers’ ears. That’s not to say toys that make noise or have screens are a hard no. “Believe me, as a parent, [I agree] there is a place for these,” says Nuernberger. “Just make sure you’re interacting with your child. For example, you can narrate what they’re doing and expand on what the toy is doing or saying.” How We Selected The dinosaurs and the tools don’t feel incredibly sturdy…so we aren’t sure if these dinosaurs will ever secure hand-me-down status. For the true dino enthusiast, this remote-controlled T-Rex does it all. It makes noise and even sprays steam for a more intense playtime experience. This 23-inch T-Rex can respond to some half-dozen commands, including walk, shake head, roar, and spray steam. The remote control also plays music and controls volume. If that’s not enough to teach the power of hard work, the set also includes two manual screwdrivers to put the pieces together.
