I bought this for my budding 7 year old granddaughter paleontologist, thinking that there would be a different dinosaur in each kit. Not true. If I had been buying this for a classroom, it would have been just fine to have the same dinosaur in each kit. However, that was not the case. I really thought, from the description, that there would be different dinosaurs. Someone should redo the description.
Pros: Age appropriateness
Cons: all the same dinosaurs
No, I would not recommend this product to a friend.

I wanted my third graders to get a feel for what a paleontologist does and a few of the character traits necessary for that career. They each had their own set of dinosaur bones to excavate, and they loved it. They were even carving out bones into their recess time, and one student proclaimed, "I don't care. This is better than recess!" It was fun listening in on their conversations... "A skull! I just uncovered the skull!" "What is this? Wait, I think it's a leg bone!" Prepare for messy-dusty. There's lots of powder by the time they've unearthed a whole dinosaur. My mini-scientists wore lab aprons and carved away on large paper plates to try to contain some of the dust.
Pros: Educational
Yes, I would recommend this product to a friend.

I had about nine 10 yr olds in my class learning about dinosaurs. They loved the idea of digging for fossils. This did take them more time than I thought. Only 1 child did it in about 40 min the rest have taken about 90 min. I also recommend telling then to only dig from the top not the bottom. The majority of the bones are in the center of the top of the brick.
This is a great way to practice what realyl happens when digging for fossils b/c if they dig too fast or too hard they can break the pieces. You will also want to have a vacuum ready, it makes a lot of dust.
We loved the variety of dinosaurs in each package. Once we uncovered them we washed them and then I used a glue gun to put them together.
Pros: quality, Child's Favorite, Age appropriateness
Cons: Assembly, lots of dust
Yes, I would recommend this product to a friend.

I run my own store and purchased these to sell. I've tried them out myself as well as gotten neighborhood kids to try them and let me know what they think. I thought that this was a great buy. It's inexpensive, and since I live in a relatively poor community that's important. I'd recomend that parents help their kids when glueing them together, especially if the kids are younger. All the kids consistantly said that was the hardest part. But even so, they all said they enjoyed it. I would recomend this item.

I bought this for a 6yr old and a 10yr old. both loved it. we did this on a windy aftternoon so the kids had a project to do inside. the adults participated too! the kit does cause some mess, so put down newspaper if you are doing this indoors-makes lots of dust and dirt. this kit may be harder for younger kids as it seemed to take alot of the 6yr olds energy to scrape away the dirt with the proper technique. also, some of the small arm/leg bones can be broken if you dig too hard and hit them, so gentle digging is needed. it took 2 hours to dig out and put together the dinosaurs.
FYI-glue is needed to put together the full dino.
Yes, I would recommend this product to a friend.

These are a cool, educational toy for kids (about ages 8-11 in my opinion). They do get a little dusty when you use the brush so be sure to ventilate with an open window (to prevent sneezes or breathing in dust). Otherwise a great toy for boys and girls alike.
