One of the reasons I love shopping Store for Knowledge is that they are always adding new items to their selection. The other day while browsing their dinosaur toys category I stumbled upon their new Dinosaur Train toys collection and thought its contents were incredibly cool. The Dinosaur Train toys category features a line of assorted dinosaurs and the train track from the hit show Dinosaur Train which the kids I babysit can’t get enough of. The collection features the main character Buddy and other members of his Pteranodon family that the kids love. All these hi-tech dinosaurs feature an infrared transmitter and receiver that give them the ability to recognize and interact with the other dinos in the line. With simply the press of a button kids can hear over 40 sounds and phrases as these dinos interact and communicate. From chomping and sneezing sounds to stomping sounds when they walk, these Dinosaur Train interaction figures act just like real dinosaurs. The category also features the Dinosaur Train dino track adventure set that includes
the dinosaur train in the TV show. Kids can go on an adventure with the three included dinosaurs beginning at Pteranodon Terrace, stopping at Rexville Station, then making their way to the Pteranodon Family’s nest. Altogether this is just a great category for preschoolers who love both trains and dinosaurs. The Dinosaur Train collection encourages basic scientific thinking skills and allows them to go on a prehistoric journey with their favorite dinosaurs from one of the coolest kids shows on TV. So stop by the Store for Knowledge dinosaur train toys collection. I’m sure you’ll be as impressed as I was!
My neighbor’s little boy is turning five in a couple weeks and since he’s been a dinosaur lover from day one his mom wanted me to get him a soft play dinosaur for his birthday. After spending a little time with him one afternoon I noticed he seems to fascinated with stegosauruses and decided to go that route for his birthday present. So off to the Store for Knowledge website I went in search of a soft play stegosaurus dinosaur. After browsing their soft play dinosaur’s collection, I found two I really like. The first is the large soft foam stegosaurus dinosaur toy by Toysmith and the second is the Bullyland soft play stegosaurus dinosaur toy. There was definitely a price difference with the Toysmith version set at $10.95 and the Bullyland version at $21.95 but instead of letting that
be the deciding factor I did a little more research. Though both dinosaurs are safe for ages 3 and up, Toysmith’s stegosaurus is smaller than Bullyland’s by a couple of inches in length and height. Toysmith’s dino is made of high quality durable foam that sounds as if it would hold up well against a pretty rowdy crowd but it lacks that real life appearance I’d like it to have. The Bullyland stegosaurus is actually hand made using a soft and squishy foam with bendable legs that I’m not sure would endure the rowdy every day play of a five year old boy. However, the Bullyland version does truly look like a real life stegosaurus! Both soft play dinosaurs are great options and for what you get, I think they are both very reasonably priced. For a child who was loving and caring toward their toys, the Bullyland soft play stegosaurus dinosaur toy is definitely the way to go, but for the rough and rowdy five year old, I think I’m going to have to go with the large soft foam stegosaurus dinosaur by Toysmith.
As part of our blog, we will occasionaly post product reviews for new toys that are extremely popular, functional, and of high educational worth. Case in point: the ZipBin Dinosaurs Storage Toy Box Playset, a good find from our recent visit to the Dallas Market Trade Show. The DMTS is an overwhelming panacea of the latest and greatest toys (some educational, some just for fun), and our visit yielded what I believe to be some of the most unique toys to date.
I decided to blog about the ZipBin because of the overwhelming popularity we’ve already seen with our customers. A number of them have reported that they really like the bin because it keeps things organized and off the floor (a big plus if you’ve ever stepped on a hard plastic toy in the middle of the night that was unfortunately left in your path). Kids probably don’t care much about the functional uses, but enjoy the playmat because it creates a prehistoric habitat for the dinosaur toys that come with it. Plus, there is enough room in the storage box to add quite a few other dinosaur toy pieces if your little one is a collector. Based on our customer feedback, we’re rating the toy box playset with 4 stars. Its educational value, durable and simple design, and overall functionality makes it a great toy.
