Who would love this: Kids and adults that enjoy building/ construction toys/ LaQ fans / dinosaur enthusiasts
We were bitten by the “Dinosaur Bug” many years ago, and have never stopped loving these prehistoric creatures. LaQ has an exciting range of Dinosaur World collection, and we are so grateful to have added this “Dinosaur World Tyrannosaurus” to our collection (thank you LaQ Australia for providing it).
Why I love ❤️ this toy:
(1) Spectacular LaQ"Live Creature" Models Of 6 Dinosaurs
Amongst the many construction toys that I have tested, I think LaQ has one of the best designs to make spectacular-looking “live creatures” models; It uses unique cursive joints, modular flat pieces, clever connection techniques, and special Hamacron parts (wheels and shafts) for its designed models. I’m always amazed at the outcomes - the “liveliness” and the inimitable LaQ style. This set includes 300 pieces, 4 special Hamacron parts, and an instruction booklet to build 6 impressive-looking dinosaurs. The models cleverly capture the distinguished features of these beautiful (and fearsome) creatures:
Tyrannosaurs is the largest character - with oversized and muscular jaw, disproportionately tiny arms, massive tail, and I am captivated by its menacing expression and powerful posture! Archaeopteryx has magnificent tail, Deinonychus has huge jaws, Carnotaurus has two horns above the eyes, Plesiosaurus has flipper-like limbs and long neck, and my favourite Ankylosaurus has its distinctive armoured and pointy body.
(2) LaQ Set Of Intermediate Difficulty Level
In term of difficulty level, the models are probably in the range of easy to intermediate. Some techniques are required to create the variety of articulated movements (eg tyrannosaurus has flexible neck and tail, and Archaeopteryx’s body and tail are moveable). I think the set is just right for 7-year-old - it’s a little challenging, but not too overly complex to make it unmanageable.
(3) Compatible With Other LaQ Sets
As usual, all LaQ kits are compatible with each other. Most LaQ pieces can be replaced / substituted using pieces from other LaQ sets. In other words, instead of dismantling a Dino model before we can start a second one, you can simply “supplement” the set using pieces from other LaQ kits in your collection (or even spice up the colour combinations of the models!).
