Dinosaur world with a little help from Duplo

We should have been going to see some tractors today but Monkey decided he wanted to stay at home.  We’re always running around and this week has been rather fraught so I took his lead and thought ‘ok, let’s just chill out today’.

We recently won a copy of Harry and the Dinosaurs go to School and he is now obsessed!

Harry and the Dinosaurs go to schoolSo much so that I bought him a collection at our Pre-School Nearly New Sale last Saturday.  They now go everywhere with him.  His Triceratops even goes to bed with him 😀

Anyway, we got his Duplo out and decided to make a Dinosaur world for them to play in, we added a fruit box as a cave for them to hide in and Monkey was away.  There was, of course, a visit from a Fire Engine (another obsession!) and I got instructed to make a Plus Plus Dinosaur to add the collection.

Yes, I’m not sure it looks like a Dinosaur either – but hey, I don’t pretend to have ANY artistic flair!!

He had a wonderful time making up stories and using his wonderful imagination:)

About Over 40 and a Mum to One

A Mum with a 9 year old son, enjoying life and having fun as my son travels through school life. We love to get outdoors whenever possible and make the most of the world around us. 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 days out, 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.

  1. Aww. My son has just started reading this series of books. We do t have any plastic dinosaurs yet though (might be an idea for his birthday list!) but he does have a cuddle stegosaurus called Steggy 🙂

  2. Wow, this is fab! Oliver loves dinosaurs since we visited dinosaur adventure in Norfolk (highly recommend) – might have to try something like this, although his dinosaurs are quite big so they may all be on the brachiosaurus scale compared to his duplo!
