Question about Dinosaur D-rex Interactive Dinosaur By Mattel

D-rex dinosaur doesn't walk

Purchased this off of eBay for our son- we can't seem to get him to walk-his legs try to move but don't. Are batteries needed for the legs? I notice key holes in the bottom of his feet. Thanks!

Looks like anyone with a defective d-rex is out of luck. Bought mine at a thrift store cheap, without the remote. It did show some signs of life when I put batteries in it so I started looking for a remote. I only found them on eBay where people were asking as much as $100 for one. I finally settled on one for about $40 hoping that was all I needed. It lights up when I push the buttons but the d-rex doesn’t respond now, in fact it doesn’t show any signs of life now when I put good batteries in and turn it on. I’m pretty mechanically inclined, so I might try fixing it but that will require surgically removing the skin and hoping I can get it back on when I’m done. I’d love to hear from anyone else who’s tried it.

You may have to conclude D-rex is defective. I have had similar experience with other complex toys.

Kota manual


According to Amazon, the only thing that comes in Monty's box is Monty, 4 C cell batteries and a "discovery sheet". There are several pages about the Kota dinosaurs with a lot of information including Amazon. I'd suggest contacting Hasbro for the "Discovery Sheet" if you can't get the info from the Amazon page http://www.amazon.com/Playskool-Kota-Pals-Monty-T-Rex/dp/product-description/B001WSCU34/ref=dp_proddesc_0?ie=UTF8&n=165793011&s=toys-and-games or this specialized site about the Kota series. The hasbro contact page is here

I went to Mattel's web page, typed in D-Rex control bone, in the search area, and they came up. There are two different models so make sure you get the right control bone for your D-Rex.

My son has just received a roaring rex from toy story 3 for Christmas and it sounds more like a duck when you squeeze it. According to other reviews, other people have the same complaint, what can be done...


Have you got the reciept? Or have the people who bought it got the reciept?
We bought my son th Toy Story 3 Buzz Lightyear and at xmas, found that the wing was broken. We couldn't do anything about it though because we had bought it a month prior to xmas and was no longer aloud to bring items back.
A friend also bought Toy Story 2 Woody and when you pulled his cord, he was missing 2 phrases. I love toy story, but I think they're toys are not so good.

If you haven't got a recipet, then I doubt you could do much. You could try and go back to the shop and explain to them and they might take it off your hands and replace it without a reciept.

Good luck.
