The latest “How hard is it to rob a bank?” toy has come out. Playskool has released KOTA the Triceratops to win the hearts of dinosaur loving children everywhere and remind parents that the toys they grew up with were pieces of shit. Look what this thing can do.
Here’s a video of KOTA in action.

When I showed this to Joseph, the Toddler of Techno-Terror, he wasn’t impressed. All I got was a “Meh”. After a moment, I realized my mistake. KOTA is too cute with its plush hide and ‘adventure songs’. The roar is just weak. A roar from a dinosaur should go straight through to your hindbrain and make you run in terror. The horns are way too blunt. You can’t pin someone like a butterfly on display with those. And worse of all, it’s a herbivore. How can you threaten to feed someone to your dinosaur when all it wants is a salad? I think Joseph will pass on KOTA and be riding a T. Rex when he’s old enough to take care of a pet. And extract DNA from a mosquito trapped in amber.
