EDITOR'S REVIEW
OVERALL EDITOR'S RATING:
What It Is

This is, in a word, inspired. It's a Velociraptor hand puppet that slides easily over a hand, of virtually any size, and allows kids to go on their own dynamic, dino adventures. The soft foam is easily manipulated, and this will let kids pretend to be the rampaging beasts, taking on anything that gets in its way...or anything they imagine.

One of the things we really like about this hand puppet and Hasbro's entire Jurassic World line, is the way they've found innovative ways to integrate different types of classic play into the toys. Puppets, of course, are one of the most popular types of toys for open-ended, narrative-based play, and whether kids are recreating scenes from the movies or creating their own dino-mayhem (as we did), this is going to be lots of fun.

Is It Fun?

It's fun because it's all about the dinosaurs. The Velociraptors are the most terrifying dinos in Jurassic World, and what kid doesn't want to use that as a jumping off point for all kinds of creative play? The puppet is easy to use and lets kids be "dangerous" while being creative and imaginative.

Who It’s For

The Velociraptor is designed for kids ages 4 and up, but any kid who loves dinosaurs, has an imagination and wants to engage in storytelling will get a kick out of this. It's also a healthy way for kids to create aggressive play scenarios highlighting the power-and-conflict play that's part of the entire Jurassic World story.

What To Be Aware Of

The puppet is a little small for some adult hands, but that shouldn't stop anyone from trying it out.
