I copied the answer below and hope it would be helpful.
Thank you for contacting Learning Resources/Educational Insights. We take safety very seriously and all of our products meet or exceed safety standards with our high standards for toy safety.

They come in a cardboard box with a plastic handle that is meant to be used as a storage and carrying box. The box measures 15 1/2 inches wide x almost 14 inches high x almost 4 inches deep. When full the box weighs just over 3 lbs. A brochure is included that provides some facts about each dinosaur as well as some clever, educational discussion starters. I'm reminded of the many quality toys I looked at not too long ago in the Smithsonian store in DC.
Visually they are most impressive and fairly detailed, including different texturing on each. The coloring is nice with good shading. They are heavy but not completely solid, as there are places on a few that can be depressed by squeezing. However, it would certainly hurt to have one of these thrown at you, especially if you're a small child. As any molded plastic toy must, they have seams but these do not detract from their appearance. They stand well, without being at all wobbly, on both carpeted and uncarpeted surfaces. If placed in a line with the nose of one above the tail of the one in front of it the line is about 4 feet long; if you wanted to place them side by side facing forward on a shelf with a bit of space between each you could do it with 2 feet of shelving (you could do it in 1 foot of space if they are literally crammed up against each other); about 3 feet would be required to have them lined up in semi-profile. (Taking these measurements gave me an excuse to play with them. ;-)
They can be cleaned with a damp cloth but are not dishwasher safe and should not be immersed in water.Read more ›
They're solid, and would hurt if they were thrown forcefully, but so would most toys. Good size for smaller people's hands, but still substantial enough for grown-ups to play with too.
Con: the offgassing is really, really bad. If you're giving these to a small child as a gift, you might want to open up the box and let them offgas outside for a day or two before repackaging and giving. Seriously, these things smell BAD.
Another problem is that the Amazon item listing says that they're made of dishwasher-safe plastic, which is why, in spite of the offgassing mentioned in some of the reviews, we went ahead and bought this set for our preschooler: we thought we would just run them through a cycle or two before giving. Unfortunately, the product insert has this to say: "To prevent water from trapping inside the dinosaurs, do not immerse them in water. Pieces are not dishwasher safe." And indeed, there's a little hole in the tails that will suck up water if you wash them to try to get rid of some of the weird plastic smell. So I'm not sure what you're supposed to do about the offgassing problem, except maybe leave them in the sun for a couple of days.
Overall, I think this toy would be an okay buy if not for the offgassing+not diswasher-safe problem. As is, I feel like I overpaid. I'm hoping the offgassing will slow down in a couple of days, but we'll see.
Edited to add: the offgassing did indeed slow significantly after a week. To help it along, I scrubbed the dinosaurs in hot water and soap by hand, then left to air-dry. After about a week, I was comfortable letting our child play with them. They have become a favorite toy, and get used pretty hard, and seem to be holding up well. I still feel unsure about recommending this product to others, since the initial offgassing is really pretty awful.Read more ›
