The FlipStir Puzzle is essentially a plastic tube with half moon shape pieces inside that have pictures on them creating the puzzle pieces. Then, there is a stir stick through the top that is used to manipulate the pieces into place. You just move the tube and use the stick to get the puzzle pieces where they need to be. I personally don’t have the patience for it, but my husband had it figured out in less than 5 minutes!

FlipStir CollageThis puzzle is perfect for long trips because there won’t be any loose pieces in the car that will get lost which will inevitably end up in tears while driving down the road. It will also keep them busy for quite awhile, which, lets be honest… isn’t that what every parent wants! 🙂 It’s also great just for some quiet time at home. It won’t make a mess and the stir stick fits completely back inside the jar so it’s very easy to find a home for. There’s nothing better than something that will keep the kiddos occupied for awhile and doesn’t make a mess.. at all!

This puzzle is for ages 7 and up and I completely agree with this. Our 9 year old was playing with it and it was a little challenging for him. He wasn’t in the mood at the time to sit down and try to figure it out, but he does play with it in the car. It keeps him busy for a good 5-10 minutes when he’s in the mood to do puzzles. If your child isn’t a puzzle fan than this probably isn’t the best toy for them as they’ll probably just get frustrated and never touch it again.

Kids Imaginative Dinosaur Toy Figure Review

Dino Review


DinosaurHaving 3  young boys in our house, we have a ton of toys! Lately they have been really interested in dinosaurs, so when I was given the opportunity to review a 12 pack of BPA & lead free toy dinosaurs I was so excited! The boys absolutely love them, they have played with them almost ever day since we have received them about 2 weeks ago.

These dinosaurs really are nothing super special, they don’t require batteries, or make cool noises, they require imagination which I love! I enjoy listening to the boys making dinosaurs noises with each other while they play with these. I’m comfortable allowing the baby (8 months old) to play with these because they’re large enough and tough enough that he’s ok putting them in his mouth. They’re also BPA and lead free so that’s another reason that I’m ok with him playing with these with his big brothers.

The colors of these are pretty bright and look nice. They’re not all the most realistic I would say, but it doesn’t bother the boys at all. Our 8-year-old hasn’t said a word about it and I can’t imagine that most children would notice. For the price of these and the fact that you get 12, I think they’re perfect.

They’re very tough little toys! Our boys are quite rough with them and so far we haven’t had any injuries or fatalities from any of them. The dog on the other hand… he chewed the back-end from one of the dinosaurs, so they’re not completely indestructible. I had a pretty bummed out little 2-year-old for a couple of days, he has named all of them and “poppa” got eaten :(.

Our boys favorite thing to do with them is play in the bathtub. They’re perfect for the bath because there’s nothing that can be ruined from the water and so far we haven’t had any issues with discoloration. They play with these in the bath tub daily… all 3 of them. I just love how versatile they can be.

All and all I would say that these are great dinosaurs and I wouldn’t hesitate purchasing them! They can be purchased here.
