Why Our Experts Love It

Strap on the safety goggles and get ready to dig, explore & build. And when you are all done, you'll have a handle T-Rex to keep you company on your desk (making homework even more fun).

We have a bunch of buried-treasure-type sets on the site, and we really love them. Great for exploration, teaches kids how to be neat and organized, and to see the project through and build their very own dino.
