|CHOKING HAZARD -- Small parts. Not for children under 3 yrs.|
Towering over other dinosaurs, the terrible T-Rex ran swiftly with long strides. Although it looked menacing, the T-Rex had little use for its short arms which only had two claws and could not reach its mouth. At almost twenty feet high and almost forty feet long, the T-Rex was not a great hunter but a scavenger, eating what other animals or dinosaurs left behind. Even though it had over fifty teeth that were over six inches long, its teeth were not used to chew but to tear since it swallowed its meals in chunks. To have better depth perception in looking for its next meal, the eyes of the T-Rex were both pointed forward so that its vision overlapped.

Wrong posture Mar 15, 2009
We have several Schleich dinosaurs and they are well made. We like them very much and have been impressed with the quality. While I recommend Schleich dinosaurs in general, I don't recommend this one as the T-rex has the wrong posture. To quote wikipedia, "Like many bipedal dinosaurs, Tyrannosaurus rex was historically depicted as a 'living tripod', with the body at 45 degrees or less from the vertical and the tail dragging along the ground, similar to a kangaroo. [...] By 1970, scientists realized this pose was incorrect and could not have been maintained by a living animal, as it would have resulted in the dislocation or weakening of several joints, including the hips and the articulation between the head and the spinal column."

4 yr old thrilled. Mar 24, 2008
I ordered a bunch of the Schleich dinosaurs for a 4yr old's Birthday. As they came out of the boxes he lined them up on the raised hearth giving each a name as he did so. In his thank you call he told me all of the names so I would say they were a real success.

Review for Tyrannosaurus Rex Dinosaur Sep 30, 2009
By Mrs. Mildred E. Keith
I ordered this for my 2 1/2 year grandson and he has carries it with him everywhere he goes everyday. After receiving it, I thought it would be a little heavy for him; however, this has not been the case at all. He truly enjoys it.
Schleich Tyrannosaurus Rex Oct 24, 2012
By R. J. Gutt
My sister bought this for me a few years back. Tyrannosaurus Rex was the King of the Dinosaurs! (And a scavenger, too.) This Tyrannosaurus is cool. I've been collecting figurines lately, and this one is very nice.
