All Aboard The Dinosaur Train This Christmas


If you have a little person who is a huge dinosaur fan or one that is a fan of Jim Henson's Dinosaur Train TV programme then Tomy have just the toys that you may want to consider for gifts this Christmas. 



There are 6 different dinosaurs to collect, Boris Tyrannosaurus Rex, Tank Triceratops, Ned Brachiasoarus, Buddy T-Rex, Morris Stegosaurus and Tiny Pteranodon. 


These dinosaur toys are really clever and unlike any other dinosaur for sale. They talk and sing but not only that they sing and talk to each other too. SmartTalk technology gives the dinosaurs the ability to recognize and interact with each other. Each one has a button that you press to wake them up. If they are stood near each other and all turned on they will talk between themselves and even sing a song. They will ask each other questions and answer others questions to them too.

You can play with the dinosaurs independently so you don't need to buy them all but they do make a great collection and are very fun to hear all together. Although they are interactive and chatter amongst themselves I am happy to report that the dinosaurs aren't annoying and are even quite amusing to listen too.  Each dinosaur has special features of their own, some chomp, fly or roar. Boris will roar when his tail is pressed down, Tank's head is tilted he makes crashing noises whereas Morris' tail makes a whipping noise when it is moved. When all the dinosaurs are walked on the floor they all make a stomping sound.

Each dinosaur is brightly coloured and highly detailed. No two have the same markings or colouring either. I love that they are well made and sturdy to play with, there is nothing worse than spending money on a toy that lasts little more than a day before it breaks or can no longer be played with.


These toys are recommended for children aged 3 years and over. The interactive dinosaurs are priced from £14.99 - £29.99. You can purchase the Dinosaurs from Tomy directly or other good toy stockists.

If you would like the chance to win one of these fantastic dinosaurs then fill out the Rafflecopter form below. A winner will be chosen at random after the competition has ended on 10th January 2014. Tomy will send out one dinosaur to the lucky winner.
