Christmas Gift Idea: Dinosaur Dino-poly
A number of publications will be featuring Everything Dinosaur and some of their products in forthcoming articles and stories suggesting Christmas gift ideas. We along with our product testers get involved in testing all sorts of dinosaur related toys and games. Journalists are producing articles for their readers making recommendations for Christmas presents for those difficult to buy for relatives and friends.
Purchasing a gift for a child can be difficult. Not only does the item have to win favour with the child, but in many cases it is important for the present to win the approval of the parents. Dinosaur Dino-poly from Everything Dinosaur, a twist on the traditional family board game, not only entertains but also educates, so it ticks all the right boxes.

The game is a variation on the traditional board game format. As you travel round the board you pick up bones and other artefacts so that you can build your own dinosaur museum. We loved the fact that a range of dinosaurs are featured, including some of the more unusual ones and the little metal counters such as the trilobite fossil and the geological hammer add a touch of authenticity. Suitable from 8 years and upwards (although some of my colleagues have been beaten by clever six-year olds), the game is designed to be played by 2-6 players. It even has a quick play one-hour option for all those palaeontologists in a hurry.
