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.
