Paleontology – How dinosaurs lived

If you have a future paleontologist at home or just a curious child who would enjoy learning about dinosaurs, you should check out this building set of five motorized dinosaur models. Children will be able to assemble a brontosaurus, a stegosaurus, a triceratops, a pterodactyl, and an ankylosaurus, which is cool, but what is even cooler is that they can then bring them to life by switching on the included motor! Parents were impressed that this isn’t just a standard building set but also teaches about the dinosaurs and how they lived in the prehistoric era. Children were excited to be able to build and then rebuild the five dinosaur options using clear instructions that our testers reported as being challenging yet manageable. This set taps into your child’s imagination, concentration, understanding, patience, direction following, and hand-eye coordination. This excellent (time-consuming – but in a good way) activity is great for any boy or girl (and even adults) who like to build and create for fun. The kit comes with a booklet that expands on the information about the dinos and offers hands-on activities to learn even more. There is even a quiz section to test what they learned. Testers found the set to be a durable and high-quality kit that provides hours and hours of productive entertainment and fun. For a price point of $39.99, it makes a great and original gift.

A Seal of Approval review involves a multi-step process conducted over an eight-week period.

Parents and children, experience and review submitted products and services either already released or coming to market.

Participants fill out questionnaires for each product or service they test. They score based on 13 levels of criteria including quality, appeal, design, price, packaging, directions, desirability, stimulation, replay factor and more. Results are based on both statistical averaging and comments received by testers.

There are three testing periods each year:
