Fisher-Price Imaginext Ultra T-Rex Review

Prehistoric creatures have always had a huge appeal to most children and since the T-Rex is the indisputable king of them all, this Imaginext Ultra T-Rex toy will no doubt fulfill your future paleontologist’s desire for action-packed dinosaur adventures. This is no ordinary dinosaur, though. It’s a 2½ feet mega structure controlled by mean-looking warriors… and it can even fire projectiles!

The package includes the T-Rex toy, 3 warrior figures, 4 boulders, and 4 projectiles. Your children will love it and get hours of imaginative play with this toy set.

Features of the Imaginext Ultra T-Rex

The T-Rex roars to life at the turn of one of three power pads. Each of the pads offer different and exciting functions:

1. Left hip power pad
The left hip power pad raises the dinosaur’s height to 2½ feet and lights up its eyes and spikes with frightening LED lights.

2. Tail power pad
This pad makes T-Rex give off a terrifying roar before taking four steps forward. Get out of the way if you don’t want to get eaten!

3. Third power pad
Run even faster away when the third power pad is activated. Otherwise, fire projectiles from the T-Rex’s mouth will scorch you alive!

Apart from the three different play functions, there’s also a handy button that will allow the T-Rex to fire boulders from its chest. There’s even a jail to imprison enemy figurines at the bottom of the structure. You’ve got to see it to believe it!
