Dino Pet Living Bioluminescent Dinosaur #GiftIdea
Disclosure: I received product at no charge in exchange for my honest review.
If you have a budding scientist in your home (or if you want your child to love science), you need to check out this fabulous Dino Pet! It's a living bioluminescent dinosaur, a plastic dino-shape filled with living phytoplankton called dinoflagellates (where the 'dino' name is derived).
Dino Pet also comes with an easy instruction booklet, Dino Food to keep the Dino Pet alive, and a special picture story book that helps children learn more about their Dino Pet. The story is a delightful tale about how the Dino discovers that he can glow.
Along his journey to find others like him, he meets several friends. He discovers that he cannot glow during the day, but that he can glow in the very early hours before dawn. The book is filled with colorful pictures and rhyming sentences to keep children engrossed in the story.
It's so exciting for children when a book comes alive! With Dino Pet and his story book, it truly does come alive. During the day, place the Dino Pet in indirect sunlight, give it some occasional Dino Food, play with it, and let it rest in darkness.
Dino Pet is amazing. It was fascinating to me to see the beautiful blue glow as I turned over Dino Pet in the darkness. It's an enthralling way to get your children to unplug from technology, and connect to nature. Each night the Dino Pet gives off a wonderful light show to indicate how healthy it is. This makes a great bedtime ritual for parents to share with their children when they turn the lights out.
Dino Pet is 100% natural, and the perfect no-mess introductory pet to teach children responsibility. It's also a great way to introduce children to science, and inspire children to take a pro-active role in learning about and maintaining the environment. Dino Pet makes a wonderful gift and I highly recommend it!
