ELC Click Clack Dino
Advantages: Nicely made.
Disadvantages: Doesn't clickety-clack.
I bought this Wooden Dinosaur for my friend's child when he was a year old. When I had a baby it came back to me in a big box of toys that had been outgrown. A lot of the toys are from Early Learning Centre and are in really good condition, however the dinosaur was in perfect condition. Hmmm must be really good quality I thought, I soon realised that it just hadn't been used very much! Why? Read on...
**What is it?
It's a green wooden dinosaur on wheels which can be pulled along by a red string attached to the front. It has a funny painted face and painted feet on the wheels.
**What does it do
The backbone of the dinosaur is made up of 4 pegs which hit against each other as it is pulled along. These make a clickety-clack sound.
**What's good about it?
It is durable and well made. The painted face and eyes are very cute. At £10 it's good value for a small gift.
My little boy doesn't play with it much, and it would seem from the perfect condition that the previous owner didn't use it much either. The problem is that the clickety-clack isn't very good.
If you use on wooden or tiled floors it slides rather than rolling meaning that the pegs don't hit each other and even on carpet it's a bit hit and miss. With this in mind it turns into a fairly unimpressive pull-along toy.
A futher annoyance is that it has quite a short string so a taller toddler would lift it off the floor rather than pulling it.
**Where can I get one and how much will it cost?
It can be bought from ELC standalone stores, mothercare concessions and online at ELC.co.uk. It costs £10, but in my opinion there are many far superior toys in that store to choose from.
Summary: Not a superior dinosaur.
