Product Description

Product Description

Get ready for a blast from the past with Terrordactyl, the interactive dinosaur who loves to snap and has a little trouble keeping his food down! Advanced dino-robotics allow Terrordactyl to interact with his owner just like a real pet, with 20 different dino sounds! Tame him by petting his head or under his chin and he'll chirp in appreciation. But watch out - if you rub him the wrong way or leave him alone for too long, he'll start snapping up a storm with a terrifying screech! Since Terrordactyl is one hungry Prehistoric Pet, he'll often beg for food. To keep him satisfied, feed him his gooey grub. But watch out - he might just throw a spit fit and blast his food back at you! Set him in guard mode and when someone comes by, he'll launch a snap attack. You can also carry Terrordactyl around on your arm to surprise your friends with a sticky strike!

This thing actually snarled and snapped at me right out of the box! It's a very cool toy. I purchased for my daughter who loves dinosaurs, and she absolutely loves it. The product description just doesn't do it justice. It's one of those toys you have to see in action to fully appreciate it. I would recommend this for any dinosaur lover!

I'm a big fan of interactive toys. I really like Pterry (that's what I named her) the Terrodactyl. Yeah, I know pterodactyl. It's snappy and fun but hasn't managed to hurt anyone yet. I like the noises and the guard function which lets me set it up to annoy people who think they are creeping around. The cat is dubious, the dogs ignore it except when they get hit with the sticky grub-- the sticky grub is the "food" that you put in its mouth and it spits out. The sticky grub picks up dog hair, so it needs to be washed occasionally.

The only thing I am sorry about is that this is made by Mattel. Honestly, I cannot believe in this day and age that Mattel is witless enough to advertise this as "A Toy for Boys."

As for educational value-- not much. The shape is wrong for pterosaurs, especially the wings and the long tail. Your budding Paleontologist though may overlook this and appreciate it for what it is. Or it might be a reason for an educational discussion about the differences. Also, due to recent research into fossils, this would definitely be a female. Male pterosaurs are the ones with the huge probably brightly colored crests that they would use to attract the more sedately headed females of the species. Take that, Mattel!

As anyone who has researched interactive dinosaur toys knows, they can be quite expensive. As of the date I am writing this review, this toy has been around 15 dollars on Amazon for at least the last few months. For the size of the toy, and what it can do, this is a GREAT value. It bites, it screeches, it "spits" venom, but my favorite, it purrs when petted on the head or under the chin. In my mind, it is the purring that lets children connect with it more as a pet.

To get the full range of activity, one needs to know that there is a switch and there are three positions on the switch. The "off" position is the middle position of the switch. One activity position is pre-set on the toy in the box, so people can "test" the animal while it is still in the box--obviously used most when the toy is sold in retail locations. However, to get ALL the functionality, one must push past this position, past the off position, and then to the other position on the opposite side of "Off".

The other advantage that this toy has is that one can carry it on one's arm, similar to how someone would carry a falcon. This allows the holder of the toy to show it off, and be able to easily activate the additional button on the tail to get the toy to snap at someone who gets too close.

What ages does this appeal to? Well, this was bought for my 5 year old nephew for his B-day, and he absolutely loved it as well as his friends. His two and a half year old brother quickly snapped it up every time his brother stopped playing with it. The only way I could get it away from the two year old was by telling him it had to take a nap, and then put it in the bedroom.

Great fun, great value. The only other interactive dinosaur toys you can get for the 15 dollar range are much smaller and have less functionality.

My 5 year old daughter got this for her birthday and it's been a total hit with her. She especially likes when it hisses and spits out the green sticky bug. Laughs hysterically every time. Solidly built so I'm hoping that this will last a long time. Recommend!!

I bought this toy as a gift for my 5 year old nephew because a) he loves dinosaurs, b) he seems to have every dinosaur toy BUT this one, c) it got great reviews, and (probably most importantly) d) it was on sale. Worked for me. Then the toy came and it came time to put it in a gift bag. He kept moving and screeching from inside the bag, which amused my 2 small children greatly. My nephew loved it instantly, and there was a fight between him and my 4 year old son about who got to hold it. The way this dinosaur interacts is awesome. He'll screech and snap when he's excited, and when he's calmer he'll almost purr. The boys kept holding it like a baby and it would "fall asleep". Needless to say, this toy was a winner!

I got this lightening deal ([...]!!!) and my daughter absolutely loved it. Our cockatiel seemed to love it too and came over and sat on it (though I was worried the toy might bite him! haha). Definitely worth the [...] I paid.

First a funny story about this toy. My husband had to pick it up at the post office because the postman would not leave it at our doorstep. My husband stood in a long line at the post office on Christmas Eve to get it. Once the postal clerk brought it out, they noticed something hard and plastic sticking out the side of the box - and this was a nice, heavy box. Oh well, he took it and as he was going out the door, the "box" started making a growling, ominous sound. He was semi-scared of the box, not knowing what it was that I had ordered. And people going in and out of the post office were eyeing him and the box suspiciously. Needless to say, it "talked" or roared or hissed making scary noises all the way home. He immediately showed the box to me, and I opened it with him watching precariously. Out came a huge dinosaur thing with a big mouth and teeth. It immediately tried to bite at me! We laughed until we cried. And it was its tail barely sticking out of the box. That tells how durable this toy is to make it without breaking in transit. This toy is so cute that I threatened to buy me one - I could get it out and flash it at the dog (or even my husband) when I wanted some alone time! Seriously, this was one of the cutest toys bought for our grandchild. And he loved it! While a very young child might be scared of it, it is perfect for our 5 year old grandson. And I still think I might get one for me!
