Disadvantages: May be a bit pricey for some
I bought this dinosaur toy for my daughter because I realised that most of her toys are plastic and I was concerned about BPA use in them and the health risks because she kept chewing on them. I had a look in ELC and was delighted to see that they have a range of wooden toys for under £10. The wooden dinosaur cost me exactly £10.
The above photo of the dinosaur is very accurate. It is a lovely bright green in colour- a different shade to all the other toys in our house- with multicoloured 'ribs' that make a 'clack-clack' sound when the dinosaur is pulled along by the red length of rope attached to it. My daughter is 11 months old and she doesn't quite get the concept of pulling dinosaur along with her, so she doesn't know or mind that the clack-clack sounds don't actually occur when the toy is in motion. She just sits with dinosaur happily and clacks the ribs together herself, which is easy for little fingers to do due to the design of the toy. She also loves the wooden wheels as they have bright patterns on them and of course they move when she plays with them.
Dinosaur has a big smiley face but I'm not sure my little one has really noticed this. The toy says 12 months+ but my daughter has been playing with it for a few weeks now and because of it's smoothness, vibrant colours and heavy weight (compared to her plastic toys) she will still happily sit and play with it for a good while almost every day. Unlike a lot of the shiny and loud toys out there (many of which reside in our household) this toy seems to create it's own amusement for my daughter as she finds new ways of playing with and exploring it herself. So, although it's meant to clack-clack as it moves along, that doesn't bother us in this household one bit!
Due to the beautiful and educational nature of this toy I think it's excellent value for £10.
Summary: Beautiful and educational dinosaur toy.
