If you’re a lover of dinosaurs, or if you know a little one who is, we’ve put together a list of 6 of the best LEGO® dinosaur toys for boys and girls – of all ages.

LEGO® DUPLO® Jurassic World™ – T.rex and Triceratops Dinosaur Breakout

Introduce young ones to the popular Jurassic World films with this easy-to-build set for ages two and up. Join Owen Grady as he rescues a baby Triceratops and takes it to safety on his motorcycle.

Ride through the fiery gates and escape the T. rex with its opening mouth – but don’t hit the electric fence!

This action-packed set is great for dinosaur lovers and will help develop fine motor skills.

LEGO® Jurassic World™ – Stygimoloch Dinosaur Escape

Those dinosaurs just can’t stay put! Get ready for action with Ben, Brooklynn and Claire Dearing minifigures and their all-terrain vehicle as they prepare to chase down the escaping Stygimoloch. 

The vehicle has a removable cage for catching dinosaurs or storing Bumpy the baby Ankylosaurus, and the set comes with a treehouse and slide for fun roleplay, as well as loads of cool accessories so kids can live out scenes from the films or come up with their own.

LEGO® Jurassic World™ – T.Rex Dinosaur Fossil Exhibition

That’s one big fossil! Assemble the posable T. Rex bones and conduct a lesson on its anatomy with Owen Grady and Darius and their drawing board and pointing stick. 

Great for fans of the film as well as for young dinosaur lovers aged seven and up, the set also features a baby Triceratops for even more adventures, and a display stand for the giant fossil to make it feel like a real museum.

There are also dinosaur egg and tooth fossil accessories for even more play ideas. 

LEGO® Jurassic World™ – Baryonyx Dinosaur Boat Escape

Take to the water – this brick-built boat really floats! 

Catch up to the escaping Baryonyx and spot it with the rotating search light, then get it back in confinement in the dinosaur cage. 

The minifigures can monitor the situation from the detachable control room or you can investigate the cargo hold beneath – perfect storage for the accessories like the tranquiliser, taser, and dinosaur eggs. And if the dinosaur sinks the ship, there are life jackets ready to keep the team safe. 

LEGO® Creator – Mighty Dinosaurs

What’s better than one dinosaur? Three dinosaurs! The LEGO Mighty Dinosaurs toy set features a 3-in-1 experience that lets you build your choice of a T. rex with a mouth that opens to show its pointed teeth, a Triceratops with bright orange eyes and posable legs, or a Pterodactyl with fully articulated wings.

All three dinosaurs come in an authentic dark-green and beige color scheme, and can be posed in a variety of ways, allowing each build style to provide hours and hours of different dinosaur adventures!

LEGO® Classic – Bricks and Animals

If you’re looking to create your own dinosaurs, the Bricks and Animals set is one of the best options available.

With 1,500 bricks, including classic shapes and a variety of different eyes, you can build 10 amazing animals from the instructions, including a mini Triceratops – or you can break it all apart and use the bricks to build the biggest and best dinosaur toys you can imagine!

If you decide you want to veer away from dinosaurs, the instructions also guide you to making a peacock with stand, a bull, a penguin with ice, a unicorn, an ostrich with nest, a snail, a hippo with a bird on its back, a panda bear with bamboo trees and a giraffe with a tree – or you can build something that’s entirely your own.
