Completing the Playskool Definitely Dinosaurs series
« on: April 25, 2019, 12:54:34 PM »
In posting the latest guest review, I noticed that there are surprisingly few for the Playskool Definitely Dinosaurs line despite its popularity back in the day. Aside from Wendyís promotional toys, the only ones that have been reviewed thus far are the Ankylosaurus and, naturally, the Tyrannosaurus rex.

So hereís a list of unreviewed toys:

Anatosaurus

Apatosaurus

Deinonychus

Dimetrodon

Moschops

Pachycephalosaurus

Parasaurolophus

Polacanthus

Protoceratops

Psittacosaurus

Spinosaurus

Stegosaurus

Struthiomimus

Triceratops

Ultrasaurus (you know, the really big one!)

I have all of these, but some arenít in the greatest condition (30 years of play by two generations of kids will do that!).

Feel free to submit a review or two or more anyway. Scratches and dings are fine; they add character to a toy. Iíd probably draw the line at missing limbs, though!

I have a Hadrosaur of some manner that I think might have been the Wendy's thing. If anyone knows what I'm talking about I can reviewed next time I go back to visit my parents (Which probably won't be for a while.)

I just submitted reviews of Apatosaurus, Pachycephalosaurus, Parasaurolophus, Ultrasaurus, and Leptoceratops. I think all the rest are in the kidís playroom at my parents house, so it might take me a while to get to those. The only other one I have at home is the Stegosaurus, but itís missing four or five plates. Anybody have a complete one?

@Libraraptor has already called dibs on the Apatosaurus, Iím afraid, but the other four you sent will most definitely be going up! Itís especially great that the mighty Ultrasaurus will finally have a review!

It's this one. It looks like maybe there's 2 Definitely Dinosaurs Anatosaurus figures. If nobody else has it I'd like to claim that review.

The rest of mine are in the kidsí playroom at my parents house, so it may be a while before I can get to them, if anybody else wants to take a crack at the remaining Playskool. Iíll check in again before I review any.

I don't know when I'll have time to go home and dig the Anatosaurus out of storage, so if anyone else has it, feel free to review it.

@suspsy, a hearty congratulations on your impending attaining of the 6000 post milestone. It's a remarkable achievement because it isn't merely quantity but, rather, is qualitatively a tremendous contribution to this forum. I'm confident that one can assert that the DTF (and DTB) would be a lesser resource and experience without your learned and insightful input. Thank you for your ongoing participation in the community.

Hi, I'm going to do the Stegosaurus and the Psittacosaurus if nobody else wants to.
