If you have a science lover or a child that just loves new toy then Dino Pet by Bio Pop is for you! The Dino Pet is a new kind of pet that photosynthesizes during the day and glows brilliantly when you play with it at night. The alluring blue light emitted by the Dino Pet is bioluminescence. It is the most awesome thing I have seen as far as toys go. It doesn’t need electricity or batteries. YAY! Old times are here again.
I am always telling my girls how we played with toys that weren’t electric and if you had a toy that made sounds your parents had money. We used something called our imaginations to play. That is such a foreign concept to them. After receiving the Dino Pet though they now know how cool it is to have a toy that doesn’t “do anything”.
How does it work?
By using sunlight, water and nutrients, instead of batteries and electricity, the Dino Pet allows you to hold one of nature’s most magical occurrences in the palm of your hand. Every year, thousands of people travel the world to experience the magic of bioluminescence in nature. The Dino Pet lets you bring this beautiful phenomenon into the comfort of your own home, and enjoy it night after night.
