Fun Gift Ideas for Dinosaur and Shark Lovers
My youngest son is a huge dinosaur lover. He and his cousin both feel in love with dinosaurs at a very early age. They knew names of dinosaurs before they knew their colors and numbers. With the new Jurassic Park movie coming out there are lots of great dinosaur products hitting the store shelves soon. We recently received a box of dinosaur and shark goodies to review and my son has been in heaven. Inside the box were fun toys for kids of all ages, perfect for dinosaur lovers of all ages.
Fun and Educational from Dolce
This cuddly fun dinosaur plush is perfect for younger children. In addition to it being fun, it’s also educational. The combination of colors and textures help kids with tactile senses. There are several interactive parts on this dinosaur. Pull the leaf tongue and the head vibrates, shake to activate the rattle in the neck, and squeeze the tail for a fun squeak.
Designed specifically with newborns and young children in mind, the Dolce Dinosaur has a soft velour body that is perfect for cuddling. As your child holds the Dino he looks up at them in a loving, caring way. The waterfall rattle in their tummy and ribbon neck help develop fine motor skills and hand-eye coordination. Pull the Dinosaur’s dragonfly friend and feel the gentle vibrations. Watch as your child improves their hand-eye coordination by feeling the rattle and crinkle in the Dinosaurs feet.
You can purchase the Dolce Plush Dinosaur on the Megaformers LLC website for $29.99.
Stuffed T-Rex from Cuddlekins
My son fell in love with this stuffed T-Rex. His favorite dinosaur of all time is the T-Rex so when he saw this in the box he jumped for joy. He’s been hugging and cuddling with him since he arrived. He loves showing it off to family and friends while sharing all he knows about this dinosaur king.
He’s been wanting me to take tons of photos of him and his new friends for days now. This cuddly buddy is perfect for younger kids. You can purchase it on the Wild Republic website for $14.99.
Bamboo Shark Stuffed Animal
To celebrate Shark Week, we got a Bamboo Shark Stuffed Animal from Living Ocean in our box as well. My son loved using it along with his dinosaurs. He doesn’t know a lot about sharks so we used it as a fun way to teach him a few things about these animals as well. The shark is soft and cuddly and perfect for younger kids.
You can purchase this sharks and tons of other stuffed sharks on the Wild Republic website.
T. Rex Excavation Kit from Thames & Kosmos
Turn your little one into a paleontologist with this cool dino digging kit. Help them dig up something fun that they’ll be bragging about to all their friends and family. Use the hammer and chisel to go on a hunt for Tyrannosaurus rex, the dangerous prehistoric giant. Excavate the skeleton relief from the surrounding soft plaster block. The kit includes the skeleton relief buried in a plaster block, excavation tools, and a descriptive manual.
This is such a fun way for your kid to enjoy dinosaurs on a different level and when they have finished excavating the dinosaur they can store it in a cool display case so everyone can see their handy work. You can purchase the kit on the Thames & Kosmos website.
