Rating:                     ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️

Recommended age:  7 year-old ++ 

Who would love this: Construction toy lovers (if you like Lego, then YES, this is for you!)  

The boy beamed in pride looking at his LaQ triceratops and requested for a picture with it so that we can “keep a photo in our scrapbook” 😊. This “Dinosaur World Triceratops & Pteranodon” by LaQ (Australia) is another exciting set that we REALLY enjoy building. Each model brings smile and real satisfaction. Thank you LaQ (Australia) for gifting us another amazing set so that we can share our experience here. 

Why I love ❤️ this toy: 

(1) 7 dinosaur models - The set comes with 300 pieces in 5 colours (brown, yellow, orange, white, pink), 4 Hamacron pieces (wheels and axles), an instruction booklet for 7 dinosaur models. We were excited to add this kit into our LaQ collection because of the large number of rare brown pieces in it. We love how impressive each model looks: The triceratops can nod its head, swing its tail, and is armoured with three formidable horns; Pteranodon has flexible jaw and proud-looking wings, dilophosaurus has unique frills around its neck, Pachycephalosaurus has dome-like skull, the under-water Elasmosaurus has distinctive long neck, Parasaurolophus has prominent crest at the top of head, and protoceratops has flattened crest at the rear of skull. We love that each model captures the distinguished features of the species. We have so much educational moment studying the remarkable appearance of the dinosaurs. 

(2) Intermediary difficulty level- In term of difficulty level, this set is slightly more challenging than most of the 5-year-old LaQ range, but comparatively easier than “Dinosaur World Dino Kingdom” that I have previously reviewed. The models are also smaller so they don’t take as much time to build. If you are looking for an “intermediary-level” LaQ set for your dinosaur enthusiasts that is not too overly complex or advanced, than this is the set for you. The instruction also comes with 2 pages of 2D dinosaur models for some quick and easy build. 

(3) Compatible with other LaQ kits- The pieces are compatible with other LaQ kits and can be mixed together for more elegant, spherical, geometrical creative building in future. I love the simplicity of the 7 parts- square, triangle, 5 connectors, and the really awesome audible click and snap feature.
