We got to review Arnie (the 411 by Maria:
OK let me start by saying I am a 46 year old child who loves toys more than my kids.
Dinosaur Train InterAction Arnie Argentinosaurus is so very cool! We love everything about him. He is large by toy standards but not so large that you need an extra room to claim him like our last dinosaur Koda the Dinosaur.

Dinosaur Train fans will love the whole InterAction toy line but especially Arnie.

The colors are wonderful.
The sounds are fun and kid friendly
He is completely interactive and walks, opens his mouth and makes over 80 dinosaur sounds and phrases
Arnie rears up on his hind legs by either pressing a button on Arnie or on the included wristband.

Cons (only because most reviews have them):
He takes 4 AA batteries
You can only be 10 feet away from Arnie

My kids and I love Arnie so much we may have to add some of the other InterAction Dinosaur Train characters to their Christmas list. We want to watch them react to each other.

Our favorite thing about Arnie: We love that he walks and stands on his hind legs!

Great toy for 3-8 year olds but like I said, I am 46 and love it.
