The Paint & Play Dinosaurs Kit by Interplay

A short while ago Interplay sent Rocky & Kyd a craft kit that got them both very excited. Sadly Kid didn't get a look in as Dino mad Rocky demanded he was going to paint the dinosaurs before Kid got home from school and so we needed up having to buy an extra kit... dammit!

Get crafty and paint 3 prehistoric dinosaurs with Craft Box Paint and Play Dinosaurs. Paint and decorate each mighty Dinosaur with the paints provided, then watch as the tiny cavemen flee in terror – inspiring role play that’s limited only to your imagination. This set includes a T-Rex, Pterodactyl and a Stegosaurus, plus, paints, a paint brush and 2 tiny cavemen.

What We Thought...

Despite Rocky not quite being 4 (as in he's only just 3), he loved this craft box. To make it safe I took the small cavemen away whilst I wasn't supervising, therefore taking the danger away. He has a thing about Dinosaurs and loved the fact he could paint his own and then play with them too. The instructions have some awesome little tips and facts on it and so we learnt a fair bit about each dino whilst we played. The paints go a long way and we've used them for a few other craft activities too, however they do stain and so an apron is advised. I'd love to say that the finished product was beautiful but it was a bit of a mess as Rocky had mixed the colours on each to make a strange greeny brown, yum. I can imagine when done by older kids the dinosaurs would look a little better than ours did and so would make fantastic shelf decor for any dino lover. I would recommend this craft box to keep them entertained on any rainy day this summer holidays; we have many of them so you might want to check out their other craft boxes too and stock up.
