Great idea but poorly executed. The fossil was already broken in half when we opened the kit and the tooth fell out so it only provided a couple minutes of entertainment.

Lots of fun, keeps the kiddos busy and comes with “Dino poop” that can be displayed. That was a win for my kids. Would suggest to do outside or somewhere you don’t mind a big mess.

Maggie - 11 months ago, Verified purchaser
This was a huge hit! I put down some tin foil to catch the dirt/sand and it ended up being almost no mess. My little one has requested more of these and has kept his Dino tooth! I did have to help him get it started because the chunk was very hard, but the instructions do say this could be an issue and a little splash of water helped a lot.

Diamond Mom - 1 year ago, Verified purchaser
My Dino-obsessed son loved this. He enjoys digging and playing the part of a paleontologist. He was excited by the large tooth. It’s a replica (not a genuine fossil sample as can be found in some other kits), but he really liked that it was larger than a specimen in a kit would be. It’s not as big as a full grown T-Rex tooth would actually be (about the size of a banana) so he pretended it was for a baby t-Rex. He keeps it with his dinosaur treasures.

It was easy to set up. We used bottled water and kept it by the window to keep it warm. But still nothing after 4 weeks.
