I am interested in hearing any feedback about how kids like the interactive dianosaur toys, like the Mattel D-Rex Interactive Pet Dino.

Saw a commercial and thought of two boys I know, grades 2&3. An online price for the mattel model noted above is $125.OO. Do they hold the kids' attention for a while?

Any favorite models?

Thanks.

In 2nd & 3rd grade? I don't think so... maybe kindergarten and slightly below. My 8 year old (3rd grade) and 6 year old (1st grade) thought they were neat, but then immediately moved on. Their 4 year old cousin is MAD for them however.

My son and his friends are more into Legos and Star Wars. Almost all boys his age still love "ninja" stuff and the Wii. Some are still into Pokemon.

If you do buy something for a 4 year old that isn't yours, PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE buy silent toys.

I think it's going to depend on the kid. The D Rex is highly interactive and my soon-to-be 8 year old budding paleontologist is begging for one for her birthday. Neither she nor her 5 1/2 year old brother cares for video games in the slightest.

Yep. My nine year old saw it advertised on TV and he ask for one for Christmas. It looks like it may do several things...could be fun.
