Dino My Gosh!


What It Is: A series of hand puppets you craft yourself – from a single set of paper. The brand is called Snappets, in part because the puppets themselves snap right out of their thick pieces of paper board. But I suppose you could also attribute that snappy name to the fact they themselves are designed to ‘snap’ anyone’s wayward fingers that end up in the mouth of one of these things, given the current collection features dinosaurs and nothing but dinosaurs. It’s a fun and affordable gift for kids in particular – they’ll be occupied for a bit as they assemble their new monstrous pals, and can easily entertain themselves (boys or girls) for hours of play afterward.

You’ve got some buying options with Snappets as well. They have two full colour four-packs of dinosaur Snappets available, or you can get the full collection for a true dino lover, including ‘colouring book’ style Snappets that allow you to give your new dino friends a bit of personal flair – whether close to ‘accurate’ hues or not. To be fair, it’s not like we have any dinosaur skin to compare to – if your eight-year-old wants to colour a dinosaur with purple polka dots, let ’em!

Who It’s For: Your dinosaur-obsessed niece or nephew. Your Jurassic Park-obsessed friend. Your busy-as-bees grandkids, to keep them occupied when they come over for a visit.

What It Costs: Each 4-piece package of Snappets is $19.99, but you can actually get the whole collection (16 pieces total) for just $49.99. They do indeed ship to Canada, although it’s a bit on the higher side ($25 for 1-3 packages). But you can always talk to your favourite local toy store about importing them so they’re right at your fingertips for purchasing.

Where It’s At: Snappets.biz
