Dino Bite game review and giveaway

Like most boys (and a lot of girls too) a nearly 4 year old Monkey is fascinated with Dinosaurs.  The Triceratops is currently his favourite, and we often having roaring competitions – me versus Monkey, versus his toy dinosaurs.  So when Drumond Park asked us if we’d like to try their Dino Bite game I thought it would be a sure-fire hit.

Dino Bite is a game for 2-4 players aged 4 years and over.  Now obviously Monkey is at the very bottom end of the age range for this game (he’ll be 4 in December), but I felt confident he would understand how to play the game quickly and that we would definately have lots of fun playing it.

You need to assemble the game (easy to do) and you will need 2 x AA batteries (these are not included)

Once you’ve assembled the game (a matter of seconds) put your batteries in and pushed your Dinosaur back, you place the Dino eggs in the nest under the leaf.  There are 20 eggs in total, in blue, red, green and yellow.

You are now ready to see just how brave you are! Can you rescue the Baby Dino eggs before the T-Rex Dinosaur realises, roars and bites! As you play Dino Bites, you listen to the sounds of the jungle, a really clever little extra, and the tension builds.

Each player takes it in turn to roll the dice …..

Dino Bites Game…  and then attempts to remove the correct coloured baby dino egg from the nest, under the nose (or should I say jaws!) of the T-Rex.  If you land on this multicoloured side, you can choose which coloured egg you would like to rescue.  There is also a side where you need to miss a turn.

Monkey did struggle a bit with the Dino tweezers and ended up using his fingers.  But, this game is great for improving manual dexterity – I’ll be interested to see how Monkey’s skills improve in the months ahead.  The Dino Bite game also teaches colour recognition, turn taking and counting skills as we kept a note of the eggs we’d saved.

Each player takes their turn to rescue an egg, if the Dino stays still, the player keeps their egg and passes the tweezers to the next player (clockwise direction).  Watch out!  If the T-Rex roars and bites, then you are out of the game!  Play continues until there is only one player left who didn’t get caught by the fierce Dino.

I was slightly concerned about how Monkey would react to the noise of the Dino roar and him moving and biting – but Monkey LOVED it!  It led to a lot of dino roaring for the rest of the afternoon and calls of ‘more Mummy, I want to play again’.  It’s a hit!

Dino Bite GameIt wasn’t too long before the T-Rex spotted us snatching his eggs! Roar!

Dino Bite GamePriced at £19.99, we’d thoroughly recommend this game, we’ve had lots of fun already. Knowing that Monkey is at the bottom of the age range means we have years of fun ahead of us with the Dino Bite Game.

About Over 40 and a Mum to One

I'm a Mum in my mid 40′s with a 6 year old son. I had a busy life in Export Sales before my Monkey came along, but decided to become a stay at home Mum once he arrived. Now I enjoy writing my own parenting, lifestyle and travel blog. sharing the adventures that we have as Monkey starts his school journey. We have a cat called Brewster who makes appearances and I’m a mad Ferrari Formula 1 fan, so that expect to hear about as each season unfolds. We love reviewing toys, games and books and would love the opportunity to look at anything that fits in with our family lifestyle. We are always out and about and offering an insight on the places we visit, with a passion for nature thrown in for good measure. If you like what you read please leave me a comment, I love to hear from people, and always try to reply. Enjoy the read.
