Advantages: Good sounds coming from the dinosaur
Disadvantages: Large dinosaur needs to be in the correct place to work and the leaf only moves a little distance.
I bought this item for my Daughter as she likes Dinosaurs and wanted this game after seeing it advertised.
Basically it is all made of plastic and you need batteries (2 x AA size batteries) for it to work. The base is a solid plastic dark green item which is supposed to look like greenery and it had a deep ditch in the front where you place the dino eggs. A lighter green plastic leaf covers this ditch and is attached to the main base of the toy.
You can lift this leaf a little in order for you to try to retrieve your eggs with the dinosaur shaped tweezers. The dino eggs come in 4 colours - red, blue, yellow and green. They look like eggs that have hatched and you can see the baby dino heads.
The dinosaur then clips on to the base by it's feet as there are to connectors on the base. You have to position these accurately before pushing into place and you must wait for it to click - so you know the dinosaur is secure. Once the feet are secure, you then need to push the dinosaur back so it is almost standing up.
To play the game the players take in turns to roll the dice. If you get a red dino baby - you must you the tweezers to retrieve a red dino baby from the nest (in the deep ditch) but BEWARE - the dinosaur may try to bite you!!!
The players take it in turns until the large dinosaur leaps forward and tries to bite you. This can make you jump when it does this as there is a loud clicking noise! Of course if he bites you then the game is over.
The dice itself has the various single colours on it to indicate which dino baby you must get with the tweezers but there is a side that has all the colours on it. Then you can choose which colour you want to get.
Overall it is quite a fun game! The leaf only moves a little bit - so could be a little challenging for younger players.
Summary: Fun game for dinosaur lovers.
