TOMY - Dinosaur Train Collectibles and Competition

As our children mostly watch CBeebies and Cartoonito Network, there are a lot of children shows out there that they haven't quite heard of. One of them is the Dinosaur Train that is showing on Nick. Jr. I get to know about the series through working as TOMY's official blogger, and it does seem like an interesting children's series worth watching.

The story is about Buddy the adopted T-Rex embarking on adventures by travelling around the world through the Dinosaur Train. According to Wiki, dinosaurs that appeared on the show are real dinosaurs discovered by archeologists, making me tempted to watch it as well!

We were sent the collectible range (3 years+) to review, including:

All the collectible figurines are well made and quite detailed. You can certainly connect the collectibles to their characters on the tv show. It will definitely be more fun to collect them with the train of course, which has changing lights and a few different sounds when you either press the horn or the engine. Some of the collectibles comes with a train car as well that can be attached to the Lights and Sounds train, to make it longer.

The figurines are the perfect size for younger children to hold, and Clay (he's not 3 yet but he certainly plays like a 3 years old!) has been roaring and growling with them! I have been keeping them on my desk to make sure that they are all there for the review, but because of that, he would find any possible chance to climb onto my desk for them! Now that this review is written, he can get on with playing, and hopefully stop climbing!

The kind PR has also given me an opportunity to giveaway one of the Dinosaur Train Lights and Sounds Train with Laura to one of my lucky reader! Simply enter the following competition through the Rafflecopter for a chance to win one home, perhaps for Christmas?
