Dino Toys

Finding the right toy for your child.

Toddlers love everything to do with dinos. Everything! Some of the things they love  are toys, and your kids simply love to play with them. These games draw your kiddos right into their very own prehistoric world for hours of imaginative fun. 

Chances are that you barely remember what you had for dinner last night, but your dinosaur-obsessed child is capable of rattling   off the difference between the diplodocus and the mamenchisaurus, and will no doubt tell you, with great confidence, that the velociraptor was a feathered carnivore with enlarged claws. 

It’s no surprise, then, that these same kids are enamored of cool, big dinosaur toys and figures. Dinosaur figures provide children with tools to learn about our extinct friends while encouraging the art of make-believe. The best dinosaur toys are ferocious and powerful, and capture the imaginations of children across most age groups and most cultures.

It’s kind of amusing in a way, how these enormous, powerful, and fierce dinosaurs are so exciting and yet so relatable to children. In the case of dinosaur toys for 4 year olds or dinosaur toys for toddlers and in fact, kids of any age, both boys and girls enjoy playing with them. It’s not gendered and that’s a really good thing.

Dinosaur toys for toddlers stand the test of time. After all, so many kids are captivated by all things prehistoric and love to educate their adults about the differences between a T-rex and a triceratops. This passion for paleontology often coincides with a toddler’s first venture into imaginative play, usually between the ages of 1 and 3. Among their many benefits, dinosaur-themed items introduce young people to the concept of world history, different eco-systems, geography, geology and a great deal more. If you can remember your own dinosaur interest as a child, you can use this as an opportunity to bond with your mini-me while watching a classic movie like “A Land Before Time”.

Their wall-to-wall love of dinosaurs can make it difficult to sort through the options and find the best dinosaur toys for toddlers based on your kid’s interest, especially if you, yourself, aren’t an expert on prehistoric animals. 

When choosing the best dinosaur toys, use your common sense:

Pick the right toy for your child’s level of cognitive development.

Make sure the toy is neither too challenging nor too simplistic. These scenarios could cause your child to feel either overwhelmed or bored. Go with the flow! If your child’s preference is puzzles, get him one; if she’s into action figures, go with those.

It’s really not hard to see why toddler boys and girls alike are so infatuated with dinosaurs.They seem like something from a fairy tale or out of a mythical land … but they are (or at least they were) real.

They’re scary, powerful, and huge … but they’re also safe, because everybody knows that they all died out a long, long time ago. 

Every child has a favorite toy – something they cling to for comfort and joy. When the movie Jurassic Park popularized dinosaurs, it had a big impact on the toy manufacturing industry. Suddenly, dinosaur toys were everywhere and kids couldn’t get enough of them. 

Kids, young and old  were bewildered by the variety, and the Christmas rush felt a lot like the film itself: a terrifying chase by parents and grandparents through stores, or more conveniently, online, fighting to find the perfect and most suitable dino gift for that special boy or girl in their life.

So, if you’re looking for a toy that will help teach and reinforce some early childhood concepts in addition to being fun, look no further, JitteryGit has some great dino toys that fit the bill. Welcome to our site and inspire future paleontologists, or just have a roaring good time, with our selection of the best dinosaur toys ever!
