3.0 out of 5 stars Good but limited 25 Oct 2012
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
My step-daughter is a dinosaur nut, so I thought this book would be a bit of fun for her. But have found there are a few limitation and faults that spoil some of the fun.
There are only a very few pages. The entire book is made up of four or so double page spreads that very broadly sweep up the types of dinosaurs, and the pop-up sections have a tendency to get tangled in each other if you are not careful, which brings us to the other major issue.
The sound boxes in the pages require you to be quite rough with the book to get them to activate and even then they don't always work. The sound is poor and tinny.

It's not the best dinosaur book I've come across, but it is fun despite it's limitations. Just don't expect any amount of educational material from this.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great for young dinosaur fans 23 Oct 2012
By K. Wright VINE VOICE
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
From some of the other reviews of this book I was under the impression that it was best for pre-schoolers. However, whilst the book is short (just 5 double page spreads) the text is more suited to older children (around 5-8). Each double page features a different sound and a detailed pop up scene related to five areas: Age of the Dinosaurs, Carnivores, Herbivores, Swimmers and Flyers, and Life Extinct. The only negative is the quality of the pop ups as one of the dinosaurs had a bit ripped off and another bit still attached which should have been removed from the die-cut.

5.0 out of 5 stars Kids loved this 21 Oct 2012
By M. Marikar VINE VOICE
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
This book is quite different from the usual. It contains 5 double page spreads with detailed pop up scenes on each one, but the unique thing is the sounds which play automatically as you open each page. You don't have to press anything, and there is a different one for each page which are all quite different, not just the same thing 5 times over.
The pop up scenes are drawn in a realistic way, not cartoony at all and may be scary for very young or sensitive children - for example on the carnivores page one of the dinosaurs is seen with bloody meat in his mouth! But my boys loved it, ages 4 years and almost 3 years.
There are 2 paragraphs of information on each page, covering topics of the age of the dinosaurs, carnivores, herbivores, swimmers and flyers and extinction of the dinosaurs. The information is written in a fairly simple way but in a way to make it exciting, although my boys were more interested in the pictures and sounds than the information.
I would say its a good way to introduce them to learning about dinosaurs or great for children who are already interested in dinosaurs.

3.0 out of 5 stars A hit with the little one but... 18 Oct 2012
By El Loro
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
...there's not much to the book. Its effectively ten pages long, arranged into five pop up scenarios, each with sound effects and accompanying text. The text is thin and, frankly, unsuitable for the age groups this seems to be aimed at. The pop-up and the sound effects, however, are great.

So, dad thinks its gimmicky and unsubstantial and gives it one out of five. Boy thinks its exciting and packed with raaaaahs and gives it five out of five.

Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
While this is quite a chunky book, there aren't that many pages. However, this is pretty normal for pop-up books. The scenes that there are pop out pretty well (a couple needed prodding in a couple of places to pop out first time, but after that they were fine), and the artwork is detailed without trying to be ultra-realistic.
The big selling point of the book are the sound effects - they're much better than you get with, say, a noisy birthday card, and my son liked all of the sounds, doing his best to imitate them.
It's a little louder than I expected, but in a good way - it's not too loud, but you're not going to miss it.
All in all, it's a little limited (hence the lost star), but it definitely entertained my son, and after all, this is aimed at young boys not adults (however immature), so I'll go with his seemingly high opinion of it.

3.0 out of 5 stars Fun for little Dino-lovers, but could be better 20 Sep 2012
By jcmacc VINE VOICE
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
Our 4 year old loved this book, there's nice pop up dinosaurs and some excitingly loud noises when you open each page. He loves telling people which dinosaur is making which noise, so clearly it's doing its job as a children's book and engaging the imagination. Our 8 year old got a bit less from it, bored quite quickly, so clearly this works best for younger readers.

The downsides are that there are relatively few scenes, just 5, and the construction could be more solid. Without any rough handling, some of the glued-on bits of the pop out scenery have fallen off (rather than being pulled off or torn off) and one the tabs triggering the noises on the final scene started to fail after just a couple of openings before giving up totally (I see another reviewer had a similar problem).

So, recommended for younger age groups but you might need to check you get a fully working version or be prepared to return a defective copy for another if ordered online.

5.0 out of 5 stars Quick Reviews! 20 Sep 2012
By carlosnightman VINE VOICE
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
I've always been a sucker for all things dino, and now that I have kids of my own it seems that I am experiencing a second childhood through them, enjoying their delight at every new toy and book. Dinosaur Discoveries is an interesting and exciting mix- a typical dinosaur book on one hand with the usual information covering land, sea, and air creatures, and some brief bits about the time they walked the earth and how they may have left us. Each page is wonderfully drawn but it is of course the addition of the 3D pop up artwork and sounds which are the selling point and do genuinely spice things up and get the imaginations going.

Each of the 5 double page spreads are expertly crafted to give maximum effect; when you open each page the long necks and fangs will literally leap out at you so younger readers beware- it is actually quite startling for younger kids. Throw into the mix the fact that the sounds are INCREDIBLY loud and you should be prepared to hand out some cuddles. For older kids and immature dads though, this is great stuff- the creatures stretching out towards you are great fun and the sounds are very atmospheric, giving a heightened sense of the scene depicted (each page features a different class of dinosaur in a different setting which sounds to match).

My only qualms which may or may not impact everyone would be that the illustrations are almost overly colourful rather than some more 'realistic' dino books and that the pop ups are quite flimsy and may tear very easily- so if your child is a grabber then the long neck of a sauropod wouldn't stand a chance.
