Robo Alive Dino Robotic Toy Giveaway (age3+) Sent by Zuru Toys

This is a toy giveaway which is aimed more at younger members of the family. Sent to us for review by Zuru Toys, the Robo Alive Dino is a walking, roaring Dinosaur who opens and closes his mouth and will no doubt be very popular with young paleontologists.


The Dino takes ages to unpack and open. It's not difficult, there's just a lot of tape and then the Dino's feet are fastened on by plastic pegs. You'll need 2 x AAA batteries too, so I can't call this one entirely Christmas-morning friendly. Once the batteries are in though, he's away.


The Dino has an on/off switch and once 'on' he doesn't stop. He walks, growls and roars, and chomps his teeth and looks pretty ferocious. In a fairly cute way.


On the side of the Dino is a brightly coloured scar which stands out in dim light. He's got a great finish with dinosaur bumps and lumps and realistic lizard skin.


His eyes are very lifelike and very much the terrible lizard, but even so he still isn't too scary. Just scary enough to impress your 3-7 year old friends...


My 10 year old had a dinosaur similar to this when he was younger and he loved it. I admit the noise was a bit much at times, but mainly he'd just have it stomping back and forth up the hall keeping guard for enemies. He'd have been much more impressed with the Robo Alive Dino because it is far more 'realistic' and makes several different sounds and actually looks like he's roaring at you!

My 10 year old's recreation of "The boy on the back of the box". 
We've been sent the 'Attacking T-Rex' in green, he's also available in orange, and if dinosaurs aren't your thing then there are several different creatures available including Snakes and Lizards!

Robo Alive Dino is available to buy now priced £16.99rrp from all good toy and game shops, including online at Amazon*. For more information about the entire range available see the Zuru Toys website.
