In theory, this toy would be my three-year-old son's dream. It combines two of the great loves in his life- dinosaurs and construction/working trucks. Although this item we received was great for imaginative play and adoration, it fell a bit short in terms of being a functional toy. The "mouth" of the truck is small and a bit hard to open, and had limited articulation. The tail/spout was the same- my son isn't overly familiar with the workings of cement trucks, so he was a bit confused about what to do with it, although he did enjoy playing with the truck's "tail" and treating the overall vehicle as a dinosaur itself.

We were sent this set with another that had beams, rocks, and some construction barriers. The beams don't easily fit in the truck's mouth. There isn't a very good grip, and there is a fair amount of manipulation you have to do for the truck to pick it up, close it, etc. This may be easier for an older child or one with better hand control. It's not necessarily a bad thing, but it wasn't fluid, either.

The dino guy that comes with this set is very simple. Small, no real articulation, but fun because, well, it's a dinosaur construction​ man. Of the Dino Construction Company items we received, the dino by himself is the biggest hit. He can play outside (and hide) in the dirt, likes the slide at the park, has even been known to relocated carrot sticks and spaghetti from one side of the plate to the floor.

I liked the concept of this toy. The execution was a bit rickety, and it didn't have the longevity that I would have hoped for. I wish the truck's mouth and tail were a little more fluid or easy to use.

It looks great. The Dino man is great because he can stand and sit. But it does not work as advertised. The wheels and the cement mixer lock when playing in/with sand. Have yet leave any Dino tracks with the tires because the wheels lock and can only see drag marks. The design of the Dino jaw to pickup/scoop up sand is poor, frustrating to use by my son and even me.

          i bought the whole set of these trucks for my 3 year old grandson for Christmas, he loves them and I found out that there is a show called Dinotrux (Netflix?) He watches the show and plays with these trucks at the same time. In the summer they will be great in the sandbox/dirt pile!
          My only suggestion would be to Educational Insights: Please package these trucks a little better. Thet were just put into boxes with no protection around them. Some of them came loose from their individual boxes and were rattling around free and needed to be put back together, which was easy to do. Obviously very durable toys!

            The cement mixer is a great toy for my son. He loves that it has so many moving pieces. I like to hear the sounds he comes up with as he's "mixing cement" I love how this toy really goes with us. It's been in dirt, leaves and I'm sure it will get the snow soon enough. I love that he can play with this and I don't have to worry about it getting ruined. It's a test of time toy. It also doesn't hurt that it's like a dinosaur because that's his favorite. I was provided a sample for review purposes. All opinions are my own.

              My son loved the dino collection. Helix is not only fun to play with but it is a dino with snapping jaws and a working cement mixer. Or as we call it in our house the sand mixer lol.. How can you beet that with a little boy. He loved that is also came with a little man to ride him. This collection is very strong, it can really stand up to a wild 5 year old. Anything that mixes Dino's and construction is a winner in my sons eyes.

              I got this in exchange for an honest review.

                This a a great sandbox/playground toy. My kids, who are 6 and 3.5, like to load it up with water and sand at the playground and drive it around. It holds up very well given the rough way they play with it and the rough terrain to which they subject it. They also love that it has a figure that is the driver, though to me I think the figure is kind of boring because it does not do anything. It is a bit smaller than I expected, and the plastic does not feel super sturdy, which is why I did not give it five stars.

                  My 3 year old son loves these Dino Construction toys. He plays pretty rough with them and they are built pretty tough. The cars are very fun to play with. The size is great for his little hands. He loves to bring these toys with him in the car so it is perfect for the car ride.

                    Comments about Educational Insights Dino Construction Company Helix The Stegosaurus Cement Mixer:

                    I received this product at no charge in exchange for my honest review.

                    My boys LOVED the cement mixer from the start - for one because it doesn't seem there are too many cement mixer toys out there, so whenever they find one they want it. Also they love Stegosaurus! Perfect! It was a little challenging for my 3 year old to maneuver the moving parts, but the boys figured it out together and love putting things inside this toy.

                    My one complaint is the little dino driver inside - so easy to lose. We've actually lost ALL the dino drivers of our 3 trucks by now. I'm not going to give the toy lower stars b/c it works fine without it.

                      My 17 months old son loves this toy. Seem like it attracts boys much - we took it out to the playground to really play with it and I had boys my son's age and older seem to be drawn to it. They tend to grab it whenever my son was away from it. The cement mixer really works. Simple but really fun. My son seems a bit too young to fully understand what the cement mixer does but he enjoyed me playing it around with it. Later on he helped me dropping sand into the mixer so he can let me turn it around to mix the sand. He loves the toy by itself too. Cool design! My only two comments will be- I wish the seat where the construction guy sits in has a tab of some sort so the little guys doesn't fall off from the chair when we carry it around. Also my son is at a stage where he drops and throws everything, so when he does the parts seem to fall off but this will resolve when he learns not to throw things! Overall great toy.
