Aisle Show You: Fisher-Price Imaginext Dinosaurs

I hate when science fact gets in the way of science fiction. When it comes to dinosaurs, I stopped listening after the first Jurassic Park. As far as I'm concerned, Tyrannosaurus Rex is still the biggest, baddest dino; Brontosauruses are a thing; and Velociraptors do not have chicken feathers.

I was perusing the aisles of Target today - picking at the bones that is their post-toy aisle re-set clearance event - when I stumbled upon this amazing display:

Fisher-Price has been doing some great things with their Imaginext lines. They've explored the world of DC Comics and Toy Story in addition to their own in-house Pirates, Space, Ocean Exploration and Dragons lines. But now F-P has gone and harnassed the nostalgia of Dino-Riders in their brand new Dinosaurs sub-line.

So far we have Triceratops, Apatosaurus, Pterodactyl, and the Mega T-Rex. Just like the aforementioned Dino-Riders, the T-Rex features sound and motion; the Target display lets you command the T-Rex's realistic flailing and chomping movement. The actual toy has a try-me feature, but it's so much more satisfying watching the T-Rex buck about without his twist-tie shackles.

Officially these Dinosaurs are meant for kids, but I fully expect plenty of adults to gobble these up. If you want a closer look at these dinos without visiting Target, Amazon has a bunch of pics for each toy: Triceratops, Apatosaurus, Pterodactyl, and the Mega T-Rex
