Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Toy for Expanding the Scientific Mind! I bought the Big Dig Triceratops for my four and half year old grandson. He loved the concept of actually excavating a dinosaur/fossil from the "earth". He spent hours digging up the bones. Excellent learning tool!!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Pieces don't fit together My son was very excited for this kit. He received it as a Christmas gift from his grandparents. We spent the morning digging it out with the included tools as well as our own tools as it is not an easy task. It is also incredibly messy. We finally got all the pieces out and cleaned up only to find that either we received the wrong tail piece or it was incorrectly made as the part that should click in to the rest of the model was cut on the opposite side and therefore did not fit. My husband attempted to trim and cut parts of it to make the pieces go together and we finally had to resort to gluing it together and telling our son it would be just for display as it was liable to fall apart. That's always fun for an 8 year old to hear. And before anyone assumes we didn't follow the directions, we had a civil engineer and an experienced model builder both working to get it together. For the price of this kit, I'm extremely disappointed in the lack of quality control. Unfortunately, we also received the tyrannosaurus kit and we now have absolutely no desire to open that one.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic Kit My eight-year-old son got the T Rex kit for Christmas and had so much fun digging for the bones and then assembling it that he immediately wanted to order the other dinosaur kit. This is a quality product that looks very realistic. I love the fact that it takes time to dig for the various pieces, which made him appreciate finding each piece even more. I would order every single dinosaur it’s more were available. I have tried similar kits from other online retailers and the quality just is not the same.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Definitely for Older Kids This is a high quality wonderful product that provides hours of fun for the budding paleontologist. My 5 year old son wanted this dinosaur for Christmas despite us telling him it would be difficult to dig out. It was hard for a 5 year old, but not impossible with adult help. I would definitely recommend this product for an older child as stated on the box.
