Author: Laticauda

My name is Rob but I go by Laticauda (which is a genus of Elapid “Sea” snakes) on both the Dinosaur Toy Blog and Forum. My dinosaur collecting journey began when I discovered the Carnegie line as a kid. They amazed me and I didn’t look at them as toys but as art. By the time I headed off to college I no longer collected prehistoric toys as I had moved on to new collecting pursuits. This all changed the day when my first child was born as it rekindled my passion for the prehistoric world. Now I have two kids and I enjoy sharing the hobby with them.

Review: Ichthyosaurus (Wild Safari Prehistoric World, by Safari Ltd)

4.6 (18 votes)

It was a hot July day. To beat the heat and to stay cool I headed off to a nearby creek to sit by the water. I found a tall tree by the water and walked into the shade. I slumped back onto the trunk, closed my eyes, and let my bare feet extend past the bank and dangle over the water.

Review: Brachiosaurus (Jurassic Park III Re-Ak A-Tak wave 2, by Hasbro)

1.8 (13 votes)

This was the first full sized Brachiosaurus in the Jurassic Park line and was released for the Jurassic Park III movie. This marks the begging of Hasbro’s full control of the Jurassic Park toy line after closing Kenner in 2000. It strays away from the playful but not always successful Kenner style and into a less interesting, boring, mass produced, and shall I say lower quality toys.

Review: Borealopelta (CollectA)

4.9 (23 votes)

Before we sink our teeth into a toy that is based upon one of the most exciting fossil discoveries ever made, I have a few thanks to give out.  First I would like to thank CollectA for supplying this sample and its continuing support to the writers at the Dinosaur Toy Blog.  I also would like to thank Suspsy, who has made this review possible.

Review: Mosasaurus and Diver Imaginext (Jurassic World by, Fisher-Price)

3.2 (6 votes)

With Mattel taking over the Jurassic World franchise from Hasbro, it has produced better toys when you compare the two lines. As for the Imaginext vs the Playschool Heroes Jurassic World lines they come across much closer in quality and style. With their ridiculous big feet to aid in stability, and the simple, yet overdone accessories the Imaginext series is intended for preschoolers.

Review: Minmi (Jurassic World Fallen Kingdom Attack Pack wave 3 by Mattel)

2.9 (7 votes)

It’s fantastic to see Mattel make so many different species of dinosaurs for the Jurassic World FK line. Minmi is another one of those wonderful rarely seen dinosaurs that is gracing us in plastic form.  This animal is not just a mini me version of an  ankylosaur.

Review: Jurassic World Fallen Kingdom Kinder Joy Eggs (by Ferrero)

4.6 (5 votes)

Here is an interesting fact.  In the United States of America, the release of the limited edition Jurassic World Fallen Kingdom Kinder Joy Eggs  would have been illegal if it had been released in previous years.  The reason for this is that any candy with a toy or “non-nutritive object embedded” inside it has been illegal since 1938, when the U.S.

It is a warm sunny day and you are walking across your backyard enjoying the comfort of the warming rays upon your skin.  You suddenly feel a chill run up your spine, as you have a sudden sensation of being watched. 

Review: Allosaurus Roarivores(Jurassic World Fallen Kingdom, by Mattel)

3.3 (15 votes)

When ever I hear the theme from Jurassic Park it send chills down my spine and puts a smile on my face. That is the power of music combined with the nostalgic feelings that I have for the original Jurassic Park movie.  Ever since the original movie release, the franchises movies, music, and toys have had there ups and downs. 

Review: Hyaenodon gigas(Wild Safari Prehistoric World by, Safari Ltd)

5 (9 votes)

For over 25 million years Hyaenodons hunted across Africa, Asia, North America and Europe.  They were formidable predators that had oversized jaws.  When hunting they would have probably ambush their prey with a quick rush, grab on to the head or neck with that impressive maw, and secure the kill.   

Review: Uintatherium (Wild Safari Prehistoric World, by Safari Ltd.)

4.7 (17 votes)

Uintatherium was among the largest land animals in one of the stranger groups of large mammals that lived during the Eocene. Its flat and strongly built skull is quite the trophy as it is strange and bizarre.  The skull is adorned with six long paired knobs that protruded from its nose, forehead, and from the back of its head.
