Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Jumbo Hatching Dinosaur Egg (Toy)
My son loved the look of the egg (he's 2 and a half) and he carried it very carefully and placed it in a bowl of water. Even when not at home he would ask if the dinosaur had hatched yet. I left it completely alone for 3 days and nothing at all happened. When my son was not around, I was changing the water and making sure the water went into the 2 little holes in the egg. Eventually I had to give it a gentle squeeze and could feel the soft part of the egg, so I broke a little off and thought that would get the dinosaur to expand and make my son believe it had started hatching. Still, every night, I would have to break a little more off and gently pull the dinosaur to get it to expand. It did expand a little bit. One night I tried hot water, I don't know if this was a mistake, but when eventually we pulled the dinosaur out (as it still had not progressed) it had horrible jelly all over it which seems to have come from inside the dinosaur, as if it's outer layer had broken down. I asked my son if we should put it in the bin because it hadn't worked properly and he said yes, and that was the end of that!
The reviews on here had seemed ok, and my son did enjoy the excitement of it all, but, whether it was because I used hot water I'm not sure, it was quite horrid by the end.
