One of The Rock Daughters’ favorite new shows of 2015 became the subject of one of the most popular features on the site for the year, and spawned one of our most popular videos on YouTube. DreamWorks Animation’s Dinotrux is a major hit with kids, and this Netflix Original Series is providing inspiration for hours of imaginative play through a companion toy line released by Mattel this Fall. Currently Toys “R” Us Exclusive, two of the hottest toys on our 2015 Holiday Wish Guide here on THE ROCK FATHER Magazine are also topping kids’ wish lists around the country – and they’re sorta hard to come by. Sold-out online as of this writing, the Dinotrux Mega Chompin’ Ty Rux and Dinotrux Revvit are worth making a trip to your local TRU to locate (they should have at least a full endcap of Dinotrux toys). We received both for review, and I can tell you from experiencing them with the girls first-hand, these Dinotrux toys completely live up to the expectations. How much do the girls love Dinotrux? Just look at the reaction in this video…
The Mega Chompin’ Ty Rux is just a fantastic toy – and it’s huge. Half-dinosaur, half construction vehicle, the Dinotrux tap into the love of dinosaurs and building that many kids almost instinctively seem to have. The series teaches problem solving and teamwork against a backdrop of adventure, and with included to-scale diecast Revvit Reptool, Ty Rux has a friend right out of the box.
There’s some cool articulation, a handle to control the overall movement, spots to place Revvit, and some quality light and sound features. Built-in storage will hold Revvit, or any of the Reptool friends that kids are no doubt hoping to one day acquire.

They're @toysrus exclusives right now, and featured in my 2015 #HolidayWishGuide! The show is on @netflix. #StreamTeam #Netflix #Mattel #Dinosaurs
The larger-scale Dinotrux Revvit offers kids a chance to get some of the features that the tiny Revvit does on the show. This mechanical lizard has a measuring tape tongue, and stores interchangeable bits along his spine. Place one in his spinning dill horn and move the tail, and Revvit is a power drill! Revvit is also on wheels, so he can scoot along just fine.
Dinotrux toys are Rock Father-approved! Visit your local Toys “R” Us store to start your trip into the Mechazoic Era!
