In the beginning there were dinosaurs, and it was good. Then came LEGO Dino sets, and it was even better, because LEGO Dino sets don’t eat you.
My boys, being fans of both LEGO (see their LEGO video!) and dinosaurs are feeling very peanut butter and chocolate about the Dino set (two great tastes and all that). They really enjoyed building the various pieces, playing with them, and occasionally arguing about the physics required to capture a loose T-Rex with a helicopter. They’re only human.
In fact, the only reason they aren’t playing with the Dino set now is because of mandatory state testing and truancy laws. I had to pry the bricks from their soft, warm hands.
The LEGO Dino T-Rex Hunter set (pictured) combines all of the fun that is a renegade dinosaur (and the subsequent hunting of) with the building of imagination, brick by brick. It’s a win-win, people.
Speaking of winning, LEGO is giving one lucky Dadding reader a Dino T-Rex Hunter set! When you speak of me, speak well.
