We were recently sent the new Dinosaur Top Trumps quiz set from the Natural History Museum shop and, even though it’s way past Toby’s capabilities at the moment, he’s really into dinosaurs and so I thought it might be nice for him to get out and play with anyway.
This Dinosaur Top Trumps quiz is scientist-approved and super educational. I love that you get the name of the dinosaur and the quiz aspect is fun, even for adults. The case is double sided with two sets of cards. It’s a huge upgrade on the original Top Trumps games but requires some good general knowledge as there isn’t a way for you to play the original game. Basically players take turns by attempting to show off their knowledge of all things dinosaur. The player has to ask as many questions as they can from the back and the person with the most correct answers wins the round. However, there are a few ways you could play the game as it doesn’t really come with any specific instructions. The end result is basically the same; collect as many cards as you can and the one with the most at the end of the game is the winner.
This is definitely a game that will grow with both Toby and Teddy while providing an all round learning experience. It’s a pretty cool family game that’s pocket sized, which is perfect for popping in your bag if you’re going away on holiday or you’re going on a particularly long journey.
It’s available from the Natural History Museum shop for only £12. If you’re looking for an extra little gift for someone, or even a stocking filler for Christmas, then this cool and handy game could be just what you’re looking for.
