With the release of Jurassic World in theaters today I find it only appropriate to offer up this review of some great Playskool Heroes Jurassic World toys. We received two toys for Andrew to play with and review. Opinions are 100% our own and we love them! I was a huge fan of the original Jurassic Park, both the book and the movie. I loved the book more but when I saw dinosaurs on the screen for the first time I was like a little kid again. It was amazing. My kids aren’t quite old enough to experience the book or the movie yet but they can still enjoy play with dinosaurs with these great Playskool toys.
We received two fun toys. A Tyrannosaurus Rex that can bend and chomp up little Playskool Heroes figures and the let them go. You can recreate that bathroom scene from the original Jurassic park over and over. Of course, until Andrew is old enough to actually see the movie only I will get the reference. The other toy was a Deluxe Vehicle and we got the helicopter with a hero figure and a triceratops figure.
I’m pretty sure that that clamp around the T-Rex’s leg isn’t going to help out our hero very much if she decides to move in any direction. But it is just long enough to prevent him from being chomped. At least in the toy world.
Oh, did I mention that the T-Rex has lights and sounds? Yeah the T-Rex roars and her eyes light up. If you know anything about the JP movies then you know why I am calling her a her. I love the detail and the movements are super smooth that Andrew can make the T-Rex roar and bite and cause all sorts of mayhem.
The helicopter is sweet. There is a trigger on the back that makes the rotors move and a clamp underneath so that you can pick up different dinos. A triceratops comes with the set and that is my favorite dinosaur so I’m happy. Also when you make the rotor move a sort of infrared searchlight moves side to side on the front. This shines a set of red dino tracks on the ground.
These are great sets and here are more details about each of them.
