Disney's The Good Dinosaur

 The Good Dinosaur has been keenly anticipated for months by most little kids and its now in cinemas.    Have you seen it yet?

The Good Dinosaur Toy Review and Giveaway

Disney's The Good Dinosaur is a story of two unlikely friends Arlo the Apatosaurus and Spot the cave boy. Arlo is the runt in his family but his heart is big and after a terrible tragedy Spot finds him and helps him and the two quickly become friends.  Its a nice tale of friendship, my kids all got different things from it but they all enjoyed it and fell and in love with the characters.

TOMY have released a wide range of The Good Dinosaur toys, all designed for little people.  Theres ones that move, talking ones, cuddly plushes, figurines and water squirting toys.  We've been playing with some of them and have picked a few to share with you and the best bit we also have a a little collection to give away! THe Good Dinosaur

Here is our top picks. You can find them and lots more on the TOMY website and at all leading retailers.


Galloping Butch 

You hang on to his tail and he runs. Kids love it although he doesnt stand on his own which i thought was odd.  He also talks saying phrases from the movie.  Butch is a T-Rex Loghorn rancher that helps Arlo and Spot on their travels.  He is voiced in the movie by Sam Elliot who i think a lot of people would recongise in real life from tv and other movies and certainly recognise the voice.  Galloping Butch sounds just like the vetran cowboy.  He talks, Roars and Gallops! A must for Butch fans.  rrp $59.95  


Feature Talking Plush 

My kids love their talking plush toys. There are three talking plushes Arlo, Spot and Butch, they are all sold separately. Not the most appropriate thing to take to bed as they talk when you cuddle them but still fun to play with, take on adventures and great for imaginative play inspiration.  Arlo is about 25cm in height and says five phrases from the movie including "I sure appreciate you looking out for me".  Butch is about 20cm in height and speaks with his gravelly cowboy voice he has six phrases from the movie including "At first light we ride".  Spot doesn't actually speak words in the movie so he has 8 growls and barks. Hes my favourite plush such a cute caveboy.  rrp $29.95


Chomping Spot 

Well when you live alone in the wilderness a caveboy must adapt and survive and thats just what this gorgeous little wild fella does.  This toy is funny you squeeze his legs and he chomps his way through his bugs (that he comes with)  Hes not poseable but his mouth does chomp chomp chomp and he makes all the Spot noises.  Pretty funny toy.  rrp $29.95


Arlo Remote Control Dinosaur 

This is very cute.  Little Arlo walking dinosaur. Its basic and easy to use for little people, would be a perfect first remote control toy.  The control pad is small enough for little hands and only has two buttons one to go forward and one to turn, the Arlo remote control dinosaur isnt very fast and he is the smallest in his Apatasaurus family but he'll get there with a smile on his face.  My three year old loves this one most.  rrp $49.95
