We're fans of Schleich in our house, we love the different collections and both my children have an interest in animals and nature so often we will choose a small Schleich animal to spend pocket money on, so when I was asked if I would be interested in reviewing two large dinosaurs from the new Schleich Prehistoric Animals toy collection, I was really excited!
We received a Triceratops and a Tyrannosaurs Rex (by coincidence they happen to be 2 of the 4 dinosaurs my children love the most - the others being Steggy and Dippy - we used to visit the natural history museum a lot!)
As to be expected from Schleich. they are really well made, have amazing details and sit well together - the sizes are in proportion to each other and I know the rest of the range will have been equally well thought out - I can imagine a shelf full of these dinosaurs in our playroom as both Blake and Maegan love dinosaurs!
The tyrannosaurs rex is perfectly balanced and ready to roar at you! we compared how similar he is to birds with his clawed feet and silhouette shape. I always liked the ancient greek translation of tyrannosaurs Rex meaning Tyrant Lizard King! The name suits him well!
We love the detail to his skin and the colour markings - its always fun to speculate what colours the dinosaurs might have been!
Blake and Maegan with "Dippy" the diplodocus at the Natural History Museum in London (a place we all love and miss now we are so tightly restricted by school! this was when we were in a 45 min queue to see the dinosaurs in the school holidays - if you can go during term time, the waiting time is usually 15 mins or less!)
Schleich prehistoric animals would make great gifts or stocking fillers for upcoming christmas wouldn't they?
What's your favourite dinosaur?
