Jurassic World toys have hit the shelves just in time for the blockbuster movie, and they are HOT! These are the toys kids are gonna want from now until Christmas and we got to try out a few of them and share the fun with you guys…… We received these items from Mattel in exchange for reviewing purposes. All thoughts and opinions are my own.
I'm a few years removed from kid status, well in age that is! But that didn't stop me from getting all kinds of excited when we opened up at big box of toys from our friends at Mattel. With the new Jurassic World movie that just opened up last weekend and crushed the box office, dinosaurs are the big thing. If you're a kid from two to your teens you are most likely going to love dinosaurs at some point growing up, so naturally it's one of the most popular party themes as well.
Of course I knew the perfect person to help me test out these new toys and brainstorm ways I could use these for party planning and creative kid activities. Judging by the size of his eye balls when he opened up the box to find the Super Colossal Tyrannosaurus Rex, this is THE toy you'll want to give if you're shopping for a birthday or Christmas gift this year. Although I'm not sure there's really an age limit to dinosaurs after seeing my husband's reaction too. Or maybe we are all just kids at heart when it comes to dino love!
You can't go wrong with any of the Jurassic World toys, especially for gifts for boys. My son loves dinosaurs and he loves trucks, so the second toy he went for in our box of treasures was the Jurassic World Gyrosphere Blast Vehicle. This truck comes with an awesome ball that you can place a figurine in and the truck actually shoots it out across the floor. The front of the vehicle pops open and with the push of the top button the gyrosphere blasts out.
One cool feature we love with the Colossal T-Rex is that he can swallow small figurines. Pull open the hatch on his belly and out pops all the mini dinos he gobbles up.
I can't wait to incorporate this guy into a Dino Party centerpiece. He'll be the coolest party decoration ever! Just imagine this giant sitting at the center of a decked out kids party table. Or maybe pretending to swallow up a two-tier cake covered with dinosaurs. Operation Jurassic World party planning is game-on over here!
Check back soon for dinosaur party ideas to go along with what's sure to be the next super popular party theme for kid's birthdays.
