“ Brand: Chad Valley / Type: Dinosaur action figures „
This set of dinosaurs was another of my son's Christmas presents this year. I bought the set from Argos, they were advertised at £9.99, but were in the 2 for £15 offer. I bought 2 packs, one for my son and one for my nephew, so I only paid £7.50 each for them.
I was a bit dubious about the quality of them for that price but they had favourable reviews on the website so I gave them a chance. I'm glad I did as I have been pleasantly surprised by them.
The box the dinosaurs come in is rather small and I instantly thought the toys were going to be a disappointment. However, when I opened the pack I saw that the dinosaurs were actually quite a decent size, but had been positioned with their legs stretched back so they fit into the small box. The legs are moveable so this was no problem at all.
You get 3 dinosaurs in this set: a T-Rex, a Raptor and a Spinosaurus. They all look very different, being different shapes and of differing colours. Any young dinosaur fan should be able to tell what type of dinosaur these are as they are quite realistic looking.
My 3 year old instantly loved these dinosaurs and started playing with them straight away. He quickly realised that when he moved their arms, their eyes lit up red and they made a loud roaring sound. This surprised and delighted him and is a great effect to add to the enjoyment of these toys.
I highly recommend these dinosaurs. They are nicely detailed and are a great size, much better than most of the dinosaur toys available. The added effect of the light up eyes and roaring sounds is excellent and makes them so much more interesting than the standard dinos. I thought I had got a bargain when I bought them, but I have seen they are now on sale at Argos for £3.49.
