“The Animal Planet Wild Eyes Dinosaur is a cute, faintly realistic looking dinosaur that roars when you press its claw. It also features flashing eyes and moving legs.”

Wild Eyes Dinosaur Animal PlanetInitial Thoughts: When this toy arrived as part of the Toys R Us Toyologist programme, our 5-year-old tester (James) was thrilled. He’s a big dinosaur fan, and it’s a cute, faintly realistic looking T-Rex that makes a satisfying roaring noise when you squeeze its foot.

We liked: To be honest, it looks cool and James liked that the dinosaur walked when you squished the foot and the dinosaur’s eyes also light up. The roar goes on for a surprisingly long time, from a parental perspective.

We weren’t keen: I think the Wild Eyes Dinosaur toy is probably too young for a five-year-old. Certainly our tester lost interest pretty quickly as apart from making a noise and waggling its feet around, the dinosaur doesn’t do much. Most toys aimed at this age group would have pose-able limbs or a mouth that opens and closes. Also, it’s hard to be fierce when you’re cuddly. However, I can see for a 3-year-old this might have a bit more entertainment value.

Overall: The Wild Eyes dinosaur looks lovely and is beautifully made, but I’d recommend it for younger children due to the rather limited play opportunities. There are three dinosaurs to collect, so you can choose your child’s favourite from the range.
