The Earth is quaking. Trees are shaking. Enormous eggs are rolling out of enormous nests. What in the world? Brachiosaurus? Nope! It's your favorite little kid with their new favorite dinosaur toys from Beyond the Blackboard.
If you're feeling like your child's obsession with these prehistoric creatures is a little different, think again. Almost a third of all children (typically between the ages of 2 and 6) go through a pinpointed "interest phase". The most common intense interest is vehicles, and the next most popular is dinosaurs.
Though most kids with an early interest in dinosaurs won't become paleontologists, most do grow into grown-ups with fond memories of their "dinosaur phase"!
From all of us at Beyond the Blackboard, have fun with these gift selections for dinosaur lovers aged 2 to 6. Share your adventures and gifts given with us on social media @beyondtheblackboard.
