Playmobil Dino Rise Sets Review
The dinosaurs will rise again! Get ready for dino-packed action with Playmobil’s new Dino Rise line, based on the animated web series.
The T-Rex: Battle of the Giants set features a poseable T-Rex with functioning cannons, barrel catapult, and removable armor. It needs all of that weaponry to fight off the evil robot. The Ian figure can ride on the back of the T-Rex to help fight the bad guy, who is riding inside the robot. This set also includes a little dinosaur who is ready to battle with projectiles of his own.
The Spinosaurus: Double Defense Power set includes Samu and Ayla figures who team up to ride on either side of the dinosaur. The Spinosaurus has razor sharp teeth, but he’ll need more than that to take on the bad guys, such as functioning cannons and removable armor. Not only does the dino’s mouth open, but also its tongue is poseable.
And Saichania: Invasion of the Robot comes with Milow, who rides the Saichania dinosaur with functioning cannons and removable armor. But beware of the villain inside his state-of-the-art robot fighter with cannons, claw hand, and drill.
The instruction booklets for each set provide information about the story and the characters, although kids can also make up their own dinosaur stories.
Should I get it?
Kids who like dinosaurs will have fun collecting these playsets and creating lots of action-packed stories between the good dinosaurs and the evil robots. We like the storyline and that kids can read about it in the instructions, but there’s plenty of opportunity for kids to make up their own stories, too.
