Power Rangers continue to go from strength to strength with this summer seeing the launch of Power Rangers Dino Charge Toys from Bandai. Combining the power and the excitement of Power Rangers, with a range of favourite dinosaurs, you can safely say that Power Rangers and Bandai may already have Christmas all sewn up.
The undoubted star of the new range is Power Rangers Dino Charge Deluxe Megazord, a huge red, T-Rex style dinosaur that can then morph into a megazord. You do this by adding the two smaller dinosaurs that are included in this package, to the large red dinosaur to create a fearsome Megazord. If this sounds confusing you can see what I mean in the footage below.
The Dino Charge Megazord comes with a Dino charger that enables the Megazord to create a range of 25 different sounds and to shine lights. This is really easy to use – it fits easily into the Dino’s mouth – my six year old found this really easy to do and loved this option, and the fact that you can buy other chargers to extend just what your Megazord can do. You can also extend the transformation to yourself by downloading the free Dino charger App that allows you to scan your charger collection to morph yourself (or maybe your child!) into their favourite rangers.
The latest edition to the Power Rangers family gets a new TV series too. Starting at the end of this month (31st August), Power Rangers Dino Charge promises to show the new team of Power Rangers using their dinosaur spirit energy to good effect to save the world. You can find the new series on the Pop channel at 7.30am so set your TV reminders – your little ones will thank you for it.
