sturdy and entertaining Jul 11, 2012
By L. Steiner
Personally, I really liked the visual appeal of this toy. It's colorful and cute. It looked easy to maneuver, and it is, even for a two year old. It talks and for some reason, it engages my grandsons, both the two and five year old for long periods of time. They can both transform it from dinosaur to vehicle with ease. I was pleasantly surprised to find such a well made, fun toy for less than $20, and plan on buying them some of the other dinos.

Go Dino Go! Aug 01, 2012
My three year old absolutely loves this toy. He only had to be shown once how to transform the dinosaur into a race car and from that point on seemed very pleased with himself when he shifted in between the configurations easily. My seven year old enjoyed the custom features, changing the dinosaur's eyes, or the driver's pictures and learning a few facts and tips about the triceratops. Both boys seemed entertained with the sounds and phases (supposed to be 50, but I haven't heard them all to count) that were emitted from both animal and vehicles and could encourage more noises from a push of another button.
Personally, I am really impressed with the versatility that comes with the toy. It also seems pretty sturdy with a hard plastic feel, consistent with all the other Vtech brand name toys, and it has been dropped a few times without any problems. Furthermore, with me, longevity is not a concern as well with the Vtech name -I am still using the original batteries and it has been a few weeks without any sluggishness. I have never had a problem with this company and certainly do not anticipate any in the future. With this toy, the fun is endless and I am sure this would be a hit for anyone in the 3-6 year old crowd.

Dino's toy Dec 30, 2012
We bought this for a six year old. Would have been perfect three years ago. Lesson learned. At least this one doesn't say "obey your master" like the yellow one does. Both were amusing for adults in an office that aren't mature. Ha.

"My name is Horns, I am massive and always in charge. When I roar,I am frightening, and nothing ever gets ion my way" ! Jun 28, 2012
"My name is Horns, I am massive in torso and always in charge. Whenever I roar I terrify my fellow dinos, enforcing my command, and nothing could ever get in my way. My three solid orange horns and my cladded head shield are part of my mighty attack weapons as I storm into forceful action, that will stun you and frighten those of feeble hearts."
Horns the Triceratops is ready to tread heavily or trample violently on with fast frequency, ruling out the competition with a big blue shield and three big orange horns on his huge head. His powerful tail, is as dreadful as a crocodile's, (it turns into a spoiler in its dual persona as a fast racing car). Pressing the dino mode button Oliver, my five years old grandy, to try many pairs of dinosaur eyes, and choose which one to confront his brother's T-Rex, with solid Horns that will show on his LCD screen.
Horns makes awesome alarming sounds revealing his wild and vicious nature, that even gentle Oliver may enjoy while Horns is in his Dino-Mighty phase. As a racing car, which Oliver is a big fan, its half Mach speed (1/2 sound speed !) vehicle's sounds are deafening. When Horns is in Shielded racing car phase. Pressing the other button you can hear mighty Horns talk, and he will tell you all about his wild life as a Triceratops.
With a big variety of unique sounds and many frightening phrases, Horns will make you guess all the time, what he is going to say next. Here, to start with big brother will help in Horns transforming into a favorite race car. I hope I could share the kids enthusism and see their eyes expressing pride and joy. I hope T-Rex tries to give Horns some space to show his tricks of the Triceratops brand.

Thumbs up! Jul 22, 2012

"a New England mom"
At first sight my son didn't want anything to do with this toy. Literally I offered it to him and he said "No thank you." I thought maybe at 7 he was just too old for it? That didn't make sense to me because he likes younger age toys, anything fidgety/transforming and noise makers. When he decided to give it a try he has been playing with it non-stop! I like it because it changes from dino to car with ease. It makes a lot of sounds and phrases but it's not too loud. I do agree with the age recommendation of 5-8 years old. I'm glad I got it.
