I don’t know about you but I love games. I had tonnes of them as a kid and even now as an adult I love pulling out the boxed games for some family fun. As well as being great fun they help children to learn about winning and losing and that things can still be fun even if you aren’t the champion. Which is a lesson that seems to need a lot of repetition before it sinks in – especially with my extremely competitive 4 year old.
Dino Bite from Drumond Park is also a really good game for teaching them dexterity. You need nimble fingers and good hand eye co-ordination to sneak past the nasty T-Rex.
Not to mention nerves of steel!
The game has simple rules: roll the die to determine what colour egg you have to rescue from beneath the fearsome T-Rex. The winner is the last player left after T-Rex has struck all the other players out.
It is hilarious. The game takes batteries because it emits slightly eerie music and dinosaur roars as you are playing. It really gets the adrenaline pumping as you are trying to sneak out an egg as carefully as possible and then BAM T-Rex strikes making you leap ten feet up into the air howling with laughter.
Dino Bite easily one of my favourite games we have. Nothing lifts the spirits more than watching your children crying with laughter as T-Rex strikes again.
I would add a caveat that although the box says it’s for 4+ it was a bit too scary for my four year old who chose to watch us from a distance after the first T-Rex strike. I think the sound effects plus the anticipation of ‘when will he strike again’ were just too much for him.
Dino Bite retails at around £19.99 and can be bought from the vast majority of toy outlets. It takes 2x AA batteries and you will need a little screwdriver to open and close the battery compartment.
