Dinosaur toys for kids

Please note I was sent product samples in exchange for this blog post.  All opinions and photos are my own.

I have a girl that's into dolls and princesses and a boy that's into trucks and trains.  But there is one thing that they both like and that's..... Dinosaur's.  So, whenever I come across Dino toys, books, movies... I am all in because I know they are both going to play and get a lot of use out of them.

With Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom heading into theaters on June 22nd, interest for dinosaur toys is high! Whether it's a classic plush from Wild Republic and Dolce that can help kids explore and express their feelings and emotions, to educational STEAM products from Thames & Kosmos and Magformers that allow kids to learn and explore - here is a nice selection of "dino" themed toys.
This stuffed T-Rex is quite the hit at our house and has been affectionately named Rainbow.  Wild Republic’s colorful prehistoric beasts come with a rainbow-chrome glitter print that gives them a holographic look. Three different sizes and price points. The line includes a velociraptor, stegosaurus, triceratops, T-Rex, and diplodocus. Large T-Rex and Velociraptor come with plastic teeth!
We received some Magformers for Christmas and I have to admit as an adult I enjoy playing with them. Magformers Dino Tego is ready for action. Click, connect and create a stegosaurus using new Magformers Tego accessories. This Magformers products contains squares, rectangles and dinosaur accessories, allowing kids create a moveable dinosaur! 
For the youngest of Dinosaur fans. Dolce Plush Dinosaur is perfect for stimulating your child’s tactile and auditory senses. This cute Dino character has its own Dolce teether, bright contrasting colors in unique fabrics, brightly-colored ribbons, crinkle feet and a dragonfly friend. Designed specifically with newborns and young children in mind, Dolce Dinosaur has a soft velour body that is perfect for cuddling. As your child holds the Dino, they will look at it in a loving and caring way! The waterfall rattle in Dino’s tummy and ribbon neck help develop fine motor skills and hand-eye coordination. Pull the Dinosaur’s dragonfly friend and feel the gentle vibrations. 


T. Rex Excavation Kit from Thames & Kosmos 
If you ask my daughter what she wants to be when she goes up she will tell you she wants to double major in Paleontology and Geology.  (Other 1st graders talk about double majors right???  No... Just Mine.  K!)   Use the hammer and chisel to go on a hunt for Tyrannosaurus rex, the dangerous prehistoric giant. Excavate the skeleton relief from the surrounding soft plaster block. 
Thanks again to Wild Republic, Dolce, Thames & Kosmos and Magformers for providing me with products.
