Activities Galore with the Playful Dino from Manhattan Toy


Disclosure review

Wooden toys are my personal favorite. Without worrying about the composition of a plastic, whether or not it’s BPA-free or full of lead and all of that jazz, you’re just free to play. Wood withstands regular use and seems to last so much longer than other toys. Pass it down from kid to kid or your child can even pass it on to their own. It’s not just my favorite though. All of my kids love it. They play with an old wooden activity toy whenever we go to the pediatrician’s office so I knew that they would have interest in the Playful Dino from Manhattan Toy.


The Playful Dino is for ages 12 months and up, which I think will be ideal for my baby in several more months. Until then, my little man is two and enjoying it himself! The Playful Dino is not only adorable, he’s got oodles of different play surfaces. There are beads to slide across, which I think is great for learning to count! There are cute little characters all over this dinosaur’s body, like ladybugs and snails. The pieces can slide, twist, and spin.


All of my children, even the older ones, love to sit and just slide the pieces along the track underneath and on every side. The Playful Dino’s eyes spin from closed to open, his tail has little flaps and a sliding track. The activities are ample on this play center and really helps to develop fine motor skills and hand-eye coordination, which also teaching cause and effect.


I noticed that the description of the Playful Dino mentions assembly required but it really is minimal! You just have to put the dinosaur’s tail on and loop a cord over a peg underneath to secure it. It’s simple to put on and remove if you’re looking to store it back in the box. Easy peasy!


The Playful Dino from Manhattan Toy is yet another toy that our kids love to play with with their baby sister and I notice that it seems to be quite a mellowing activity toy. My oldest has some attention troubles and I watched her play with pieces repeatedly, seeing that she was just quite content to keep her hands moving. I mentioned that the age is 12 months+ but I think it really can range depending upon what you and your child(ren) are comfortable with. I would and do recommend this toy, whether it’s for your home, pediatric care office, or even daycare. It’s easy to wipe down this wood toy so as to keep it disinfected every day.



You can purchase the Playful Dino from Manhattan Toy for $68.
