Yes, dinosaurs have been extinct for millions of years. But that probably won’t bother curious babies and toddlers who will delight playing with this friendly green guy. Four balls are included to roll through various openings and watch come out of other openings, teaching cause and effect while delighting curious young minds at the same time. The dinosaur has a bumpy tail and a mouth that can be made to open and shut. Ten different tunes accompany the action along with gently flashing lights and fun sound effects while a wiggly ladybug and a wiggly fish bounce along on top. The design of having the dinosaur lie flat while your little one crawls around investigating will also likely be good for motor skill development. --Charlie Williams
From the Manufacturer
This friendly dinosaur is full of fun, from head to tail! Four Roll-a-Rounds feature adorable baby dinos inside. They’re ready for drop-through play, with surprises waiting down each ramp. Will the ball bounce down the bumpy tail, spinning the butterfly on the way? Maybe it will head through the peek-a-boo door, or past the swinging pendulum and out the front. Or watch it roll down through the dinosaur's mouth for silly sounds. Also features 10 lively tunes and colorful lights. Whatever happens, baby will learn about cause and effect while having a roaring good time! Includes 4 Roll-a-Rounds. Requires 3 "AA" alkaline batteries (not included). Approx. 27" H x 15" W x 15" D.
Disappointing to me not as much to him!
I was awaiting the release of this toy. He loves his blocks and block toys but none of the roll-a-rounds toys were his type. So he had about 25 balls but no toy to go with them. This looked perfect! He enjoys it but not like I thought he would (he LOVES balls). Here are my problems with it.
(1) The middle hole, it drops down to make the pendulum swing and more then half of the time, the ball gets stuck at that point.
(2) The balls get stuck coming out of that hole as well...
(3) The head comes off real easily and its never on the toy (he takes it off every time especially since its easy to get off)
(4) kind of boring... thought there would be a spiral slide of some variety as kids love that.
(5) music & lights are nothing special either.
I usually LOVE FP toys and we own sooo many. I am happy with my incredi-table and with the wagon for the blocks. This one just wasn't worth t he money.
Well, we're on boy #3 that is using this toy. It's held up extremely well and even my oldest plays with it still. The balls still get stuck... now there is a whole other element to getting stuck as they loves to put their cars in it (down the slide through teh mouth, down the block-slide...). Guess it was worth the money after all (and not what it's listed here as..)
ROAR with laughter
We couldn't wait to take this beast out of it's box! This dinosaur is a lot of fun. My 8 month old doesn't quite understand the point or the cause and effect, yet. Nonetheless, she still likes the lights and sounds.
This toy does come in pieces. It took my 6 and 7 year old daughters less than ten minutes to put it together. Note that it requires 3 AA batteries for sound and lights. It is still fun without the effects.
Let me clarify the pendulum, for anyone trying to figure out the photo in the ad. When a roll-a-round is put into the orange hole, the ball goes down a ramp, pushing this pendulum-shaped piece out of its way so it can exit the dinosaur's stomach. There is no cover over this part, so nothing can get clogged up by a an oddly shaped toy of your child's choosing.
This is what I don't like:
1- This is made with, what is becoming, typical Fisher-Price quality. When my older children were this age, everything seemed more solid, with a heavier-duty plastic. There is one place on the back of our dinosaur where the plastic was not even cut in a straight line, and looked a little jagged. It does appear safe, however.
2- The last 2 baby items we purchased from Fisher-Price looked, as this one does, dirty and used. There are a few small places where the toy looked like it was dragged across a rough surface.
All in all, this is a great toy. The sound effects are entertaining, but not annoying with 2 volume levels (loud and louder) and an off switch, which also turns off the lights. The "Roar" is not loud or scary. It comes with 4 roll-a-rounds with dino babies in them (one is an egg that opens and shuts). I recommend this toy to babies 9-18 months.
I was so excited when we got this toy for our six month old. He loves it. The roll-a-rounds are wonderful to begin with then this addition just makes playing that much better. The songs and noises are great. Kids from all ages love this toy. From our seven month old to our six and a half year old and all ages in between, they just love it. I definatly recommend this to everyone.
