Style Name: Mammoth Excavation Kit Verified Purchase
(I will refer to GeoWorld as GW and Dig a Dino as DD)

Shortly after his birthday a couple of months ago, my son took an interest in dinosaurs. We went to a store and found a GW T-Rex excavation kit. He enjoyed the kit so much that we bought more excavation kits. As time went on, his interest became more of an obsession and he's "excavated" many a dinosaur from both the GW brand and the DD brand.
The following dinosaurs have been excavated...
GW brand: T-Rex, Brachiosaurus, and Elasmosaurus.
DD brand: T-Rex, Stegosaurus, Triceratops, Pterosaur and Woolly Mammoth.

Each of these brands has their own positives and negatives and if you are deciding between the two, I hope my review will be helpful. I would give each brand a 4 star rating.

Comparisons:
1. Tools:
-GW comes with a hammer-like tool and chisel. DD comes with a rounded hammer-like tool and a paintbrush (See my photo here Geoworld Dino Excavation Kit - T-Rex Skeleton ). The GW tools work just fine on the GW clay.
-The DD tool doesn't work well on its own. In fact, I have no idea how to break the clay with the single tool provided. I would suggest supplementing with a toy hammer. We use a Black&Decker toy hammer which has worked great.

2. Clay:
-The GW clay comes in several colors depending on whether the dinosaur lived on land or water. (We haven't tried any flying dinosaurs from this brand - YET). The walking dinosaurs have cream colored clay and the elasmosaurus has blue clay. The clay breaks apart easily and is perfect for young kids. It took my son 2 hours the first time and now it takes him only an hour to excavate.

As I said it is a bit time consuming but it is also quality time to spend with your kids. I helped my little cousin work on this for about an hour, and it was fun. But my cousin was getting a little impatient so we kind of cheated the process a bit we soaked it in water for a while and it still took some time to do but when it was done it was worth it, she really enjoyed the time we spent together on it. If you have a lot of patients and a child with a lot of patients then this would be a great project to work on an hour a night for a week or so to finish it properly. But if you do it in the water DO NOT drain it down your sink make sure as to soak it in a little bucket or wash pan because it a plaster substance and it will plug up your pipes. But all in all I thought this was fun and educational, for the adult help the child as well as the child. AAA+++

For one I have to say to all you negative nancies about the dig kits of any kind being messy, dusty and dirty, well duh. It is to be close to real life digs. Second then yu complain about the kits lasting an hour or two. Well here's the deal. If your child loved doing it that hour or two will stick with him forever. Also they are small bricks how long are they supposed to last? My word.
So onto my review. You can see almost step by step how the kit went. It was a lot of fun and my son and i did it together. He was more than happy to do it with me.The excavating took just over an hour to complete and get all of the pieces out. To get him cleaned up and built took another 30 mins or so. Took almost two hours from start to finish. My son loved this kit and was so happy to put him together. Sadly he did say it was better than the gem kits now. I love the gem kits. I had a lot of fun digging this guy out as well.
We did this kit on my bed on top of a towel. Yes the kit makes a lot of dust when you use paint brush or blow it off, but thats part of the deal. Its not liek it cant be cleaned up. I highly recommend this kit to any dinosaur.mammoth lover. It was tons of fun.

We have purchased several of these Dinosaur fossil dig kits in the past few years for our 7 year old daughter. She was given one for Christmas 2009 and her interest in Dinosaurs went through the roof. She has seen every movie or cartoon that has featured a dinosaur in it ever since then. We have probably purchased 10 or more of these kits here because our daughter loves them so much and we have even used these items as "rewards". Instead of a treat of some kind, break out a new fossil dig kit and instant excitement!

Great for tuning fine motor skills. This is not a toy that your child is going too put down immediately (if they like it). It is time consuming and can be quite a mess with all of the dust and rocks being chipped away but definitely worth the amount of money (and then some)as well as the time you spend on these. Different types and species are available so there is a pretty good selection out there for this type of product. As I said, our daughter was 5 when she got her 1st one and once she started chipping away at it and saw some progress, she never slowed down. She loves everything about dinosaurs and actually being able to dig these fossils out on her own, she has now declared that she is going to be a Paleontologist, Artist, Nurse! All at the same time!

Again, other than the messy dust, this is a great product. Of course without the dust and dirt, this could not possibly even exist. When she is inside at the table chipping away, I put newspaper down and a cookie sheet on top of the paper and then she can just go to town! Cleans up easily enough too! Great price for a very cool item!
