I bought this toy for my 5yo son, of whom is dinosaur obsessed and he adores it!
Apart from the fact it's a plastic toy and there's really not very much can be faulted in an item of such simplicity, it's very well designed and I feel overall that it's a great toy and has been designed with great consideration.
The dinosaur makes a 'shrieking' kind of noise and also has flashing lights, of which my son adores setting off whenever he is playing with it. It's a very fun aspect of the toy for him, possibly what he prefers most about it! The limbs can also be moved by hand but are quite rigid in the sense they won't come off if pulled or pushed with too much force.
I enjoy the thick, sturdy plastic design of it - although my son is a typical boy, I don't think this is a toy he will break or cause significant damage to as it's so well made and doesn't press inwards, bend nor collapse under pressure of both teeth and hand! It's quite heavy for such a small toy and it is wide, but my son can still fit his hand round it's back & belly. When dropped it makes quite a heavy noise but doesn't seem like it could ever break - it is genuine quality.
The texture of it is very good also, feels very much what a real dinosaur would have looked like and for my very dinosaur informed son he is suitably impressed that ELC matched the colour scheme adequately!
I love it and so does he, it's a brilliant simple toy for children away from technology.
