Dinosaur T-Rex Room Guard with Motion Sensor

I received this product for free to review.
OK this toy is really cute! There are some things to keep in mind though... I tested this toy out because I have multiple children so I was wondering how much trouble this was going to cause. The batteries screw in which you know is kind of a pain but a huge bonus in the long run since the kids can't take out the batteries themselves. The projection works great, its easy to focus it with the arm of the T-rex and the on and off button is easy to use. Its cool that they store the disks inside the back of him too but the latch is a little hard for me to get open so I'm hoping they will be able to do it themselves. I know this toy is supposed to be mostly just standing there while you use the features of it but kids tend to actually play with toys and well one of mine likes being mean to his brothers so... The claws on the feet are a bit sharp and could stand to be filed a bit. And aside from the focus arm for the projector the jaw is the only other part that really moves. It can bite. Not just fingers inside the mouth either pretty much anything that you put it near. Of course the jaw doesn't move on its own and uncreative mean kids could simply use it as a blunt object but I also worry about potential Dino attack play potentially leaving real bite marks and bruising. The Dino alarm feature is pretty cool too it roars in a few different ways but keep in mind if the feature is turned on it will continuously make partial roaring sounds as long as the toy is in motion which could definitely get annoying fairly quickly. The disks also are a bit difficult to get in and out of the projection slot. I'm kinda going to have to recommend this for older children or those without siblings or as a great gift for someone else's kids. I do think mine are going to have a lot of fun with this and heck I may too (already thinking of setting it up outside the hall to scare the heck out of them if they decide to sneak out of their room at night before giving it to them) the pictures of the dinosaurs are cool but I do wish it said the names on the image so I don't have to look it up every time they ask "what kind is that one" I recommend grabbing some rechargeable batteries to go with this one too. I will be adding some pictures and videos later but as I've just finished checking it out myself... I figured I should go ahead and post this. If you'd like to pick one up for yourself you can grab it here.
