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!

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 got this dinosaur and I had so much fun with this... even when his head stopped working and he would not interact when I pet him! But petting is not everything about him! He is still a fun guy!

He is not very good at guarding though... he does a long screech before the attack. But if you are thinking of buying it; I am sorry to say but I would not pay that much, I got him much cheaper!

I hope you have fun with him!!!

This was one of the toys that when opened on my daughters birthday was a big hit and surprise! But shortly after it's play value went down because all it does is make noise, and move its head and arms around. The "spitting" action is a complicated process of plugging this specific 'key' they give you into his mouth and then it will spit it back out. We found it actually kind of hard to get his mouth open just at that correct moment to push this key in and get it to 'click' then push the correct button a certain number of times to get it to fire. It was too complicated and is now just sitting on a shelf with the key lost somewhere.

I had to send this back, as it was missing a piece to make it work properly. The lady I purchased it from was very kind and she had no problem having me send it back and refunding my money. She had no idea that there was a piece missing.
