I love really thinking about what I can buy friends and family for birthday and Christmas presents. Some of you may have seen me asking around recently for gift ideas for my best friend (she’s even commented that she feels that her presents are a bit rubbish compared to the ones I get because I put so much thought into them), and I’ve thankfully found something unique and hopefully exciting again.
But, when you get really stuck, it’s always worth checking out gift websites like Prezzybox to look to. Prezzybox has gifts for all budgets and for all ages, easily filtered by person, occasion, type of gift and price, making it easy to get ideas and then buy.
I could spend hours looking through Prezzybox for ideas, but recently we were sent what must be one of THE best gifts for young children…or just for anyone who loves dinosaurs.
N was straight into the Legends box when it arrived. These are giant inflatable dinosaurs, over 3ft long or tall. He decided he wanted the triceratops rather than the tyrannosaurus rex which I was surprised about, but nope, he was sure. Prezzybox also stock a stegosaurus too.
As well as being a bit of fun, there’s also educational information on the box. So young children can learn more about the dinosaur in the box. There was also a large roll out poster of the dinosaur, which would look great on a playroom or bedroom wall.
N’s never really been that excited about dinosaurs, but he’s really loved this one. As soon as it was out of the box, he was trying to blow it up.
I took over, and with only a few puffs, we had the dinosaur and its ruff inflated and ready for N to play with.
Of course, he wanted to take it outside for a ride on his John Deere Gator. It was a funny view, watching him trying to manhandle a dinosaur that’s almost as big as him out the door. It was the perfect fit for the trailer part though, so they had a good long ride several times round the garden and off to the farm to show Gran and Gramps.
I was a little concerned when he tried to sit on and ride it like a space hopper, but credit to the makers of the dinosaurs, they’re pretty sturdy, and it didn’t burst, even with his 4 year old weight on it.
So far, it’s been to meet the cows and sheep in the back field, ridden the gator several times, and I spotted N trying to push it down the slide. Nothing like extreme play for an inflatable!
I’ve been impressed how well it’s lasted. We’re a week or so in, and it’s not deflated at all. It’s definitely worth the £16.95 it costs, and if it gets a puncture, there’s a repair patch included. The recommended age is 6 years+ although I’m sure over 3s will enjoy it right through to older children.
N keeps asking to have the T Rex inflated as well, but for the time being there’s only so much space we have in the house for giant inflatables!
Disclosure: We were sent 2 giant inflatable dinosaurs from Prezzybox for the purpose of review. All words and opinions are our own.
Wow it’s huge! Great, fun Christmas present idea. Thanks for linking up with #TriedTested
Looks like he’s been having great fun with his dinosaur! We had an inflatable dog that stayed with us for weeks, and came on walks with us 🙂 #countrykids
Wow what an adventure and looks like a lot of fun with dinosaurs too!!! Great review. Thanks for linking up to Share With Me blog hop. I hope you have enjoyed reading so many fab other blog posts and to see you again tomorrow for another great round of #sharewithme
Thanks Jenny. I have to admit every time I walk in the room it’s been dumped in, I’m surprised to see it there!
What a fabulous present for a dinosaur lover 🙂
Aww I would have loved to have this one for my kids too, for sure they would have so much fun with this as they like dinosaurs as well. Great Review! #TriedTested
It’s certainly good for a lot of different games and play
This looks so cool! What a great idea x
Wow, this looks amazing! My youngest is dinosaur mad and im sure she would love one of these… a possible request to santa I think! #TriedTested
My boys would love this. Great to know that it is sturdy and that it comes with a puncture repair kit too. I love the fact that N took the dino on a tour! #TriedTested
My daughter and I were looking at your photos earlier and she absolutely want one. She is a dino lover. lol xx
They are brilliant. I’m sure a lot of dino fans would love them. Could you imagine turning a bedroom into a dinosaur lair?! Although N insists that they lived in volcanoes, so maybe not so good.
Looks like a great idea for a Christmas present, my Monkey is only 3 but I am sure he would love one of these 🙂 #CountryKids
That is very cool 🙂
Those are fabulous photos – love seeing a triceratops happily trundling around a farm. My daughter would adore these although I’m not sure where we’d find space! #countrykids
I love the way the Triceratops is riding in the back of the Gator, just an everyday sort of farm event! Sounds like good value as it is still puncture free and certainly high on the entertainment factor. Thank you for sharing on Country Kids.
Oh that sounds like a lot of fun and glad that it has coped so well with all the rigorous testing that N has put it through! Love the photos of N taking the stegosaurus out for a ride on the trailer and meeting the cows 🙂
Now they are fab! Another idea for our upcoming 6th birthday I think.
Oh, I love that Triceratops! I have a dino lover at home that would enjoy these. Thanks so much for sharing at the Share With Me blog hop.
