Product Description

Baby Dinosaur is happily munching on leaves, twigs & berries in a deep Canyon and is caught in the rising Water of a flash flood. Our job is to rescue Bambino Dino!

We work as a Team to save little Dino by lowering the Water level until he is dry and also help give him the Food he likes best.

This is an excellent game to introduce the co-operative concept to young children. Simple to grasp with color-coded dice that indicate when to pick a helpful Tool or some Food and also when to build the Water higher and higher.

Though luck plays a part in keeping up the suspense, there are choices to be made, so you must do some thinking and discussing. Everyone's contribution matters. Have fun and remember to share your Tools. We need everyone's help.

Not as wonderful as described
February 27, 2006
I read rave reviews about Bambino Dino and bought it for my son. The part that I liked the best was that it claims that the kids work as a team and learn cooperative play. Not so much. My son just turned 5 and this is not a challenge for him or a learning experience. As for the team playing, the kids can share their cards to take a piece of water off the dinosaur (so it doesn't drown). That is it for "team playing", not as I had hoped. The object of the game: there are six "water" pieces. You start with one or two water pieces covering the dinosaur. You roll the dice and depending on what you get you either get to pick "bucket" cards (which you can remove a water piece once you and the other players get enough of the bucket cards). You also have to get three food cards (by rolling a horseshoe on the die) before the game can end (or the game ends if the dinosaur drowns first). As an adult, this game is not so much fun or a learning experience for my child. BUT, my son does like playing the game, hence the two stars (I would have liked to give it zero stars). I'd save my money.
