There’s something truly awesome about a thunder lizard! If you’ve ever been lucky enough to see a reassembled dinosaur skeleton in real life, you know that gobsmacked feeling of being in the presence of something really extraordinary.

Dinosaurs have been capturing the imagination of humans for as long as we’ve been aware of their existence. We all know that kids love dinosaurs as much as (if not more than) any paleontologist, so this list will help you get fantastically Jurassic by giving a gift that includes an extra dose of dino dopeness!

Remember that nightmare you had where dinosaurs and robots came together and mechanized dinosaurs were taking over the world?

The Vtech Mix & Match-a-Saurus is all about teaching little ones how to express their feelings through fun songs and phrases by placing, emotion, character, and music tiles on Mix & Match-a-Saurus’ back. “Rawr!” Which roughly translates to “happy learning!”
