Toy Box: KOTA The Triceratops

Forget the rocking horse, this holiday is all about a dinosaur! KOTA The Triceratops ($300) is a plush, prehistoric pal that your lil guy or gal can ride on. Six "D" batteries bring this endearing, movable toy to life. He stomps, laughs, munches on a leafy snack and responds to voice and touch. Ideal for children three and up, wee ones weighing less than 60 pounds can hop on his back and hang on to a built-in handle as he moves around (Kota does not walk).

Standing two and a half feet tall, this is the present that will command attention under your Christmas tree. Mommies looking for a deal should check out Costco stores where I spied this find for $235!

Update: Costco is now offering this in store with a rebate so the final price for the dinosaur is $150!

If I were a kid and I had to pick between this and a power wheel, I would stick with the power wheels. This dinosaur has a novel quality, but I don't think it is actually that great or will hold attention for very long.

I saw it for 199 here at Sam's club too. I loved it for myself! It loves when you pet its nose it moves around like a dog! It was great.

Mine want the horse one, or at least my younger son does. I wish I could afford it, I'd love to have both.

If I had a tot to buy it for I don't know if I could resist giving it with a copy of Dinotopia. I think I would make it my special afternoon storytime spot. You ride the dino and we'll make up the adventure!

$199 at the Target by my house. I'm tempted to get it for my 18 year old, as we always had a "dinosaur thing" together...
