Imaginext Jurassic World Jurassic Rex Review (Fisher-Price)

Imaginext Jurassic World Jurassic Rex
What It Is

The Imaginext Jurassic World Jurassic Rex from Fisher-Price is a preschool-friendly dinosaur and vehicle playset based on the new Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom movie. At more than two and a half feet in length, this dinosaur has lots of points for interaction. We've seen Chris Pratt's character Owen take on the role as the dino whisperer in the first Jurassic World movie with the raptors and now it looks like that role is expanding to include the biggest dino in the park, the T-Rex. This dino toy plays into that letting kids play out the role of Owen with the included Owen Imaginext posable figure and this massive T-Rex toy. 

Kids can set Owen into the Power Pad atop the dinosaur and turn the figure to make the T-Rex respond. Its eyes will change from green to red to show it has entered predator mode. Kids can also take control of the dinosaur in other ways, such as using the top handle to make this T-Rex "roar" or even lunge forward and take a bite into the included playset or jeep. We think kids are especially going to love the ability to literally lift up the included jeep in the jaws of the T-Rex. 

In addition, this dinosaur comes with a three-level playset to pretend to fight back when Jurassic Rex goes into predator mode. Press the top launcher to fire off pretend darts to maybe sedate this dino or press the lower level Power Pad to launch the 4x4 jeep at or away from the T-Rex. The push-button launcher can also be attached to the T-Rex or the jeep. 

Is It Fun?

We've seen many detailed tyrannosaurus rex toys in the new Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom line from Mattel, but this toy is designed totally with preschoolers in mind. This Jurassic Rex is jammed packed with fun interactive lights and sound effects, as well as chomping action that help bring the dinosaur-inspired stories of kids' imaginations to life.

Who It’s For

The Imaginext Jurassic World Jurassic Rex is from Fisher-Price and it's for ages 3 and up. Let's get one thing clear, there are a lot of dinosaur toys out there and there are a lot of kids that love dinosaurs. This toy is made for little dinosaur fans with it's easy-to-operate lights and sounds and the playset and vehicle are perfect accessories to help kick start your child's imagination. 

What To Be Aware Of

For those familiar with the Imaginext Ultra Dinos of the past, this is a dinosaur toy focused more on the action of the Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom movie and doesn't have the same features as the Ultra Dino, i.e. this one is kid-powered and does not move forward on its own. 

It requires 3 AA batteries to operate its lights and sounds.
