Dinoworks is a fascinating, educational and fun-filled kit that will show you what it is like to be a paleontologist in the field.
Imagine you are a paleontologist and have unearthed the bones that you cast from Dinoworks. You are there from the moment the first bone is found to the thrilling finale of the unveiling of the entire skeleton on display. In the end you will have constructed your own Tyrannosaurus skeleton and learned about paleontology in the illustrated educational booklet included with your kit.
Glue and magnets are provided to display your creation. For additional information on dinosaurs, read Eyewitness DINOSAUR. This book is loaded with facts about dinosaurs, illustrated with stunning color photographs and drawings. Great for ages 6 and up.
As one of the top online toy retailers, we have access to unprecendented quantities of product review data. One of the key ways that we use this data is by associating our products to the specific ages and genders of the kids who are playing with them. Whereas most retailers must rely upon manufacturer suggested ages (i.e. 3+), we take actual customer usage and share it with you here so that you can choose the perfect toy or game.
But how does this help me? You can use these graphs as a general measure of it's appropriateness for a given age and gender. While this information is generally accurate, it should not be used as an absolute answer. For instance, many dinosaur toys are purchased for boys, however, that doesn't mean that it's inappropriate for a girl who happens to like dinosaurs.
NOTE: The orange color in the charts above indicate ages that are LESS than the manufacturer suggested age. Please purchase at your discretion if your child is younger than 6 years of age.
Identified Special Needs Challenges: Learning Disabilities
"For the developmentally-challenged, including pre-made parts will hold their attention and jump-start their interest. It is disappointing for a young child or mentally under-developed person to open the box and not be able to play with the item right away. Although, pouring the plaster and setting up the bones is a great learning experience, I believe including a set of pre-made pieces that can be assembled right out of the box, will keep their attention. Including the plaster for a second project will give them something to look forward to, if they enjoyed making the first one."
My just-turned 4-year-old daughter loved building her dinosaur with Daddy. We worked on it off and on again throughout the weekend and it's now displayed proudly on a desk in our office area. Since she's young, we did the project together. She helped stir the plaster of paris, poured it with me, painted all on her own and helped line up all the pieces then glue them down on foam core... And while she didn't seem to notice, the directions said something about paints that were not included in our set. Not sure if there was a missing row of paints or not. But, like I said, wasn't a big deal to her.
The picture is very misleading. It appears to be a model that you put together as a standing dinosaur. However, it actually requires you to make the bones using a mold and then it can only be assembled lying down or on a magnetic surface. While my son did enjoy it for what it is, it is not at all what he expected or was looking for.
Please visit the Returns & Exchanges center if your dinosaur is less than a standout success. Colossal satisfaction is not far away!
