    My 3.5 yr old loves his remote control Dinosaurs.
    My living room is Jurassic Park !.......I hear "ROAR !!!" in the dark !!!
    The kid has over 30 T-Rex dinosaurs in various sizes.
    However --
    I can't tell you HOW MANY of the battery/remote toys --- NEVER
    worked -right outta the box !
    Most worked half @ssed......a couple NOT at all.
    I had to speak with my wife about not losing the receipts -- she
    was not keeping them + we got "stuck" a few times !:grrr:
    She finally has paid an "insurance $10 fee" at the toy store -
    ( I know....what a scam......but they take the toy back NO MATTER what )
    because we have returned so many of these battery operated malfunction toys !
    *
    The largest + most expensive T-Rex -- worked half @ssed = last night.
    Another one to return !
    You don't even get....."what you pay for" !!:thumbsdown:

    They are probably knockoffs. I saw a show last week about tax or agents of some sort going after the knockoff trade in a city just across the border from Hong Kong. It's a billion dollar industry. The show centered around "cloned" iPhones, which may or may not work.
