Dino Bite Review and Giveaway

drumond park logodinosaur game dino bite

Dino Bite is an exciting game from Drumond Park aimed at ages 4+. This is perfect for my just turned 5 year old. He has been studying dinosaurs in school this year and loves the chance to have some one to one time with Mum playing games.

As soon as he saw box he was really keen to play it and he straight away said that he liked the look of it.

The aim of the game is to sneak out the most eggs without the T-Rex noticing. The Dino babies come in 4 colours and there is a dice to roll to see which colour egg you need to take out.

There is a pair of tweezers included but the rules mention that younger children may find it easier to use their fingers – which Mr Z chose to do. I did use the tweezers (obviously as a grown up I can not get away with going with the easy option!) and I can see how they are slightly tricky for some young children. If they can manage to use it, it will be good for strengthening the muscles in their fingers which helps develop the fine motor controls for pencil grip, which can improve the neatness of handwriting. So once Mr Z has had a bit more practise at the game, I will start hinting for him to have another go with the tweezers!

If you do accidentally alert the T-Rex to your presence, he leaps forward with a loud ROAAARRR! I will admit, when I see a game needs batteries sometimes I do have a little grumble to myself as I go off to find some. BUT the effects on this dinosaur add so much extra excitement to the game that I think its definitely worth it and anyway the batteries should last for a pretty long time. The sound effects and movement of the dinosaur make it stand out from other games and Mr Z really enjoyed it. The game plays some background dinosaur-ish atmospheric sounds throughout, and then the extra sound and movement comes in when the dinosaur is alerted. Have a look at this short video, then you can hear it for your self
