  2. 2

    Match the curve on one rounded blue neck and body piece to the curves on two grey dinosaur body parts. Attach the white side of one dinosaur part to each side of the curved neck and body piece. Repeat to form two identical groups.

    Attach the two identical groups together with curved sides facing outward. Set two dark grey sloped pieces into the space on the top centre of the grouping with sloped areas facing outward.

  4. 4

    Slide the pin on the bottom of the completed T-Rex head into one of the circular end pieces of the body. Secure the completed T-Rex head onto the body. Rotate neck piece and head upward until the head sits at the angle you want.

    Snap the two small arms onto the rounded section of the body nearest the attached head. Insert the back rounded section of the body into the cavity of the large dinosaur legs piece. Press pieces together to secure the body to the legs.

    Insert pin of the tail middle section into the larger base section of the tail. Secure a dinosaur tail end section to the other end of the middle section to complete the tail. Insert the pin of the base tail section into the circular end of the body and press until the tail is connected.
