Hatching Our Zuru Smashers Epic Dino Egg & Dino Smashers Series 3 - Review & Giveaway

AD - We were sent these products for the purpose of this review.

Noah has been a fan of collectibles for as long as I can remember. I've lost count of the different collections that he has on the go, and I dread to think of the amount of money we've spent on them! He has his favourites amongst his collections and Smashers quickly became popular with him after we reviewed Smashers season 2 last year. With this in mind, I was delighted to be given the chance to review a couple of products from the Dino Smashers series 3 range, and so was he. 

The focus of this review is the Smashers Epic Dino Egg but I have got to mention the two fantastic packs included in this bundle. The Zuru Smashers Dino 8 pack - RRP £9.99 and Zuru Smashers Dino Collectors tin - RRP £7.99 are great to opt for if you want to start a collection off with a bang, for birthday gifts or for pocket money treats too.

Noah chose to open both the 8 pack and collectors tin at the same time so that he could smash them all in one go. He threw them everywhere, on the floor, on the sofa, on the windowsill. He loved smashing them just as much as finding the collectible dino's amongst broken pieces. It's worth noting that these eggs can be pieced back together once broken. I think this is great because not only can children smash them over and over again, it means that all those pieces of plastic aren't going straight to landfill.

Next, we have the Smashers Epic Dino Egg which is huge and really impressive to look at. It made Noah scream in excitement when he first saw it and he couldn't wait to see what was inside. He peeled off the plastic packaging, then bashed it on top of his toybox to open it. 
It didn't take long for him to get into it and that is when the fun began.

Inside the Smashers Epic Dino Egg is basically everything that kids love; slime, putty, sand, collectibles and a bath bomb! Within each component are different bones which all connect together to create a Smash-o-saur. He quickly 
picked up the scratch map to get started and was in charge of scratching the map to find out what we needed to do to find the bones.

As you can see this can be quite messy, but it is so engaging and fun! Usually, with toys like this, the activity is over within ten minutes but having so many different tasks to complete with this gave us lots of time to enjoy it. Once the bones were clean it was time to assemble the Smash-o-saur and discover which out of the three we had. While I put all the bones together Noah did a fine job of smashing the six eggs which come with the Smashers Epic Dino Egg. He discovered fossils, rares and had no dupes whatsoever.

Zuru Smashers have gone and done it again with this series. The Epic Dino Egg, in particular, is something else, it's awesome as Noah says! Suitable for children from 5 years, it retails at £24.99 (cheaper in some places) and contains 25 surprises inside. It's excellent value for money and offers a lot of fun and intrigue. Find this range at Smyths, The Entertainer, Argos, Tesco, Asda, B&M, Sainsbury's and all the major retailers.
