When I received an invitation to take part in the Zoomer Dino Jester campaign, my older son lit up. He loved that he was getting to test something fun. My younger son was also excited, but the minimum age on this meant my older son would be the official tester. Of course, they both played with it, but my younger son was unable to master it the same way my older one did.
A welcome card accompanies the box.
It comes with an information booklet, which I admittedly have not read. I went to make dinner and came back to see at eight year old son had everything under control. Jester actually needs to charge before you can play with him. Xander had him plugged in while he was reading the booklet when I returned. He even told me how long Jester had to charge and set an alarm to return to play with him when the time was up. My son is a pretty impressive soul, but I admit I was sad that he only needed me to open the box. That is all I did. In a few years, he probably will not even need me for that. Kids these days are so impressive with technology.
I actually tried to play with Jester myself, but I could not get him to work the same way Xander does. He obviously read the book, and I cannot take the shortcut of not reading it unless I wait for him to show me how to play with it. Whenever I do ask him to show me, he takes over. That is a sign that he loves it, is having fun, and I should back off. One day, I need to read the book, so I can play with this on my own. It’s too bad I cannot figure out how to work him without reading it.
This little dinosaur was a lot more fun than I expected. I fully expected my boys to play with him once or twice and push him aside the way they do with most toys, but they’ve played with him almost everyday since he arrived about a month ago. Considering how much they play with him, I love that I’ve only had to replace the batteries once. Though I have not read much, I did read that the remote is only used for limited interactions, which probably explains that.
Replacing the batteries is no fun either. The screw is smaller than any screwdriver I own, so I strip the screw when I fiddle with the batteries. Please remind me to buy the world’s smallest screwdriver before I change them next time. It arrived already partly stripped (the maker might not have an appropriate screwdriver either. After the first battery installation (they’re not included), the damage was bad. By the time I replaced them, I am starting to think it no longer looks like a screw. Watching Xander get Dino to dance, mimic, and fall is worth dealing with the battery replacement.
Once you’ve tried the product, you have a task to complete. Completing the task helps you qualify for future programs. These are the tasks I will complete for this campaign. The list is a lot smaller than my Secret or Crest campaigns, so I like that. Bring on more kids items to test. My older son loved every minute of this. While my younger son cannot get the dinosaur to work the same way my older one does, he is at an age (four) where watching is a lot of fun for him.
