Get 'em off the screen and into a fun, hands-on activity. This DIY wooden T-Rex model not only looks great when its built, it also walks at your command. Just clap to control it's movement as it literally roars its way across the floor. 

This is a great parent & child project to build together during holidays or over a wet weekend. The instructions are easy to follow and everything you need is supplied.


Features

It Walks! It Roars!

A motor is included to control movement which is activated when you clap your hands. In true dinosaur fashion, it shows its displeasure with the world by roaring as it walks.

Fun and easy to build

Once built, you’re left with a controllable dinosaur to share your shelf space for many years. However we think the best part is building it. Whether you simply enjoy hands-on activities or you need a therapeutic break from life, the construction process is a happy balance between keeping you interested without the need of an engineering degree.

FAQs

What could possibly go wrong?

Building the kit is pretty straight-forward; you remove the parts and then snap or glue them into place. However all model building requires skill. If you’re not careful, you could damage the parts during removal, lose parts or install parts the wrong way round. Some parts are delicate and can get damaged if you apply too much pressure. As with any skill, the more you practice and the more experience you have, the better the result. Take your time and enjoy the journey.

What is the minimum recommend age to build T-Rex?

12 - but builders of this age might need some help. Children aged 14+ are more likely to be able to build independently.

What is the maximum recommend age to build T-Rex?

The kit is designed for all ages, so if you love hands-on activities then don’t let age stop you. It helps if you have steady hands and decent eyesight.  

Do all the parts need to be glued?

No glue is required with this model. The parts fit snuggly together without glue.

Do the parts need to be sanded?

Sometimes when you remove a part, it comes off with a small burr. On those occasions give the edge a light sanding using the supplied sandpaper. 

Is the finished kit fragile?

It should be okay if it topples over. However if it’s dropped from a height then I don’t like your chances. The biggest threat comes from smaller children and, ironically, cats.
