Product Safety

This product is subject to specific safety warnings
  • Warning: Not suitable for children under 8 years. For use under adult supervision

Product Description

Fossilize, dig up, and reconstruct a dinosaur skeleton replica. Learn how fossils form, how paleontologists excavate them, and how dinosaur bones are pieced together to form complete skeletons.

Model the process of fossilization by burying your dinosaur bones in layers of plaster "rock." Carefully excavate the bones from the plaster using the tools and techniques of paleontologists. Finally, assemble the dinosaur bones into a complete skeleton.

Ages 8 and up.

4.0 out of 5 stars loads of fun (if you have patient kids!) 31 Oct 2012

Durability: 3.0 out of 5 stars    Educational: 4.0 out of 5 stars    Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
My daughter has been keen on fossils and the idea of archeology for a while now so I decided to get it for her. Be warned it has to be left to set for three days before any digging can happen - a long time for a young child! The bones get buried by you in layers of plaster, 3 days later you can excavate them. This process is still ongoing, both my kids (age 6 & 8) spent over an hour with the tools given then I offered to have a bash with a real hammer, we're still only halfway. Surprisingly the kids are still very interested and excited to collect all the bones and put them together - I have a feeling most kids would be bored by now. They have a suggestion for the manufacturer - add in some bits of fake rubbish so you never know if what you're digging out is part of the skeleton or some other debris...good luck with your excavations! note: Once done you'd have to buy more plaster if you wanted to do it again as there's only enough for one dig.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic for my 7 year old son 1 April 2014
MY brother bought this for my sons seventh birthday and he absolutely loves it. His friends all demanded one for their birthdays. If your child enjoys investigating things and learning how to construct them, this is a super gift.
