2.0 out of 5 stars VERY SAD!, March 15, 2011
= Durability:2.0 out of 5 stars  = Fun:1.0 out of 5 stars  = Educational:1.0 out of 5 stars 
Take caution when people review and item and say - "for what they are" or "for the price I paid" thats never a sign of quality, it just means that returning them isn't worth the effort. We received these as a gift and I have actually taken the time to find the seller selling these to write this review. The picture shown appears to be the dinosaurs we received more evolved cousins because ours look nothing like them. Or perhaps the seller was wise enough to alter and blur the picture. First of all we did not receive 12 dinosaurs we received 2 sets of the same dinosaurs and one broken dinosaur (his horn somehow snapped off in the bag before it even got here) Ok technically there are 12 total but I don't think thats what people assume. These dinosaurs are not to scale with one another (ie they are all the exact same size) and are VERY VERY poorly painted, I.E one has what appears to be a runny eye! The seams are terrible, rough to the touch and catch on EVERYTHING! We have a big dinosaur fan at our house and we have dinosaurs from the dollar store that are nicer than these! Many have dark red or florescent blue eyes which just look silly. As for being educational, what a joke they are so badly cast, constructed, and painted it is as though they just badly made pretend plastic monsters. I know dinosaurs can be hard to find and expensive but seriously save your money by buying 1 or 2 quality pieces as these are just junk. Still I suppose a smaller or less dino obsessed kid might have a good time with these.

I was about to write a similar review when I found yours, which says it all about these poor quality "dinosaur" figures. I would only add that they bear more resemblance to something trampling around Tokyo in the late 1960s breathing fire than something that may have actually walked the earth some millions of years ago. And, like you, we too received two each of the same six unique dinosaurs.

If you're looking something closer to what you might actually want--but still not museum-quality--try these instead: 12 piece Large Assorted Dinosaurs - Toys 5-7" Larger Size Dinosaur Figures.

For around the same price you get 12 DIFFERENT dinosaurs. They actually attempted to get the anatomy right and even put their scientific names on their bellies, though the paint jobs might be a bit hit or miss. Still, nothing like Rhode Island Novelty's bizarro dinos!
