Dino Construction Company: WRECKER! T-Rex Skid Loader!


The Dino Construction Company got it right when it came to designing a line of toys that would get kids that like Dinosaurs pretty excited. These part construction and part dinosaur toys have been a huge hit with both my six year old daughter and nearly 4 year old son. Each is built tough being able to scoop, dig, pour, tread over dirt or sand, and withstand a lot of rough and tumble play.

There’s no need for batteries just pure imagination and creative play. My kids didn’t even look for buttons to turn on our to make it work. They figured it out and were pretty thrilled with the maneuverability. The Wrecker the T-Rex Skid Loader features an opening and closing mouth, the neck can move up and down, the tail can not just move up and down but also swivel from side to side! On the front of dinosaur, there’s a seat as well as steering wheel where a child can place an action figure or whatever they desire to pretend the dinosaur is being driven and controlled. One of my kids favorite features is the Dino Track treads. Seeing the marks left behind in the dirt and sand has been a winning feature!


We’ve had this dinosaur for over a month and my son plays with it nearly every day! It hasn’t gotten old and when friends are over they love bringing this dinosaur as well as another in the series out to play with! The durability is awesome. The generous size make maneuvering the dinosaur frustration free! The only con might be sharing. This is one fun toy! My kids have played with the T-Rex indoors as well as outside. It’s pretty easy to keep clean too.


There’s no doubt at all that the entire vehicle line from the Dino Construction Company will do nothing less than impress both boys and girls whom are into that sorta thing. It’s truly unique when you can take two general interest that many kids love like dinosaurs and construction vehicles put them together and make one amazing toy! Just be warned, once your kids have one, there’s a good chance they are going to want to collect the others and who could blame them? These toys are truly a must for indoor or especially outdoor play!

The One Year Devotions for Active Boys Review

activeboyThe One Year Devotions for Active Boys is a great choice in getting boys engaged and excited about growing with God. What I like is that this devotional can be started anytime of year! There’s no specific day of the week or year marked just days so there’s no need to feel like you have to start at the beginning. The devotions and activities are applicable to the month each resides in meaning there are seasonal activities and devotions that would be based upon upcoming Holidays and the like.

Each of the devotions always has a section to pray and then a Bible verse to conclude what was just read, in-between there is usually an activity or experiment, word puzzle of some kind, weird fact, or wacky laugh. I would recommend if reading through this devotion with a boy to look ahead so if an activity comes up, you can set some time aside and have material on the ready to get really hands on. It doesn’t apply to everyone but I know sometimes the message is better remembered with an additional activity. I think the authors of this devotional are awesome for taking that into consideration.

The devotions are easy to read, pretty engaging, and quite applicable to boys around the ages of 7-12 years old. I felt that the devotionals weren’t dated in the least and appreciated that the devotions span over many ages. This is a great book to pick up to start that daily habit of spending time with God! Young boys will be learning about how to apply the messages of God’s word and act it out in their own life! I most certainly recommend it!

If you are interested in purchasing, The One Year Devotions for Active Boys is $10.79 right now on Amazon.com! It would make a wonderful book to gift that special boy in your life!
