What our experts think

Deadly Dino Experiments is a great educational game with a variety of activities, from excavating fossils to making quicksand, encouraging children to learn about science in a fun and exciting way. The science kit is really fun and engaging for children as they can read about the characters and the story in the book before conducting the “experiments”. This gives children an interesting and interactive way to learn about dinosaurs. Children also liked being able to use materials from the real world to complete different experiments, which helped keep them engaged in the game. 

The set comes with a 36-page booklet which children were able to read independently, only needing a little assistance from adults to complete some of the activities. Our testers particularly enjoyed reading about the facts about the dinosaurs and finding out what would happen with the experiments. It is fair to say this was a huge hit for children who like dinosaurs!
