Two years ago, Boogs got a "hatching dino egg" for Christmas. He really enjoyed watching the egg crack and seeing the dinosaur emerge from the egg. He still talks about it. So, I bought him another one this year for Christmas. We finally got around to putting it in water last week. It was a slightly defective one. Only half of the egg cracked. The dinosaur is supposed to completely emerge from the egg in 24 to 36 hours. We left it in for four days and then Boogs "helped" the rest of the egg crack. We have let the dinosaur dry out and shrink. Boogs is ready to put it back in water to see it grow again. I think we grew and shrunk the last one we had at least ten times. I wonder how long this one will last.
