Educational Insights Dino Construction Company Wrecker the T-Rex Skid Loader

0 from 0 review(s)

With summer fast approaching I am looking for interesting toys for my toddler to play with outside. I really wanted to love the Educational Insights Dino Construction Company Wrecker the T-Rex Skid Loader but it was a bit overpriced and underdone.

It wasn’t too difficult to get the Skid Loader out of the open-faced package. I used my scissors so it made quick work of an easy unboxing.

The Playtime Experience

There are multiple moving pieces on the Educational Insights Loader toy. Everything is moved manually so it is a great outdoor toy. The tail moves in multiple directions at each joint, the next bends and the mouth opens and closes. The Dino is supposed to roll along on the track wheels but it doesn’t do that very well. I would have preferred some sort of manual level to bend the neck and open/close the mouth. The manual portions of this toy is a little too manual and doesn’t allow for much enjoyment of play.

Things I Liked

I really like the style of this toy and that being devoid of electronic components means it is great for outside play.

Things I Didn't Like

I don’t like that everything is manual at the source of the joints. I would have liked this Dino Loader to act more like the actual construction equipment.

Appropriate Ages

This Educational Insights toy is recommended for players over 3. However, there aren’t any choking hazard pieces so I have no problem letting my 18 month old play with it.

Final Note

This Educational Insights Dino Construction Company Wrecker the T-Rex Skid Loader was a bit more expensive than I think it deserves. I would have gladly paid this price if it were a little more elaborate with more levers to make it operate like an actual skid loader. This one is just too manual for my taste and leaves a lot to be desired.
