Imagine if instead of getting the usual lollipop or sticker everywhere you go, there was something bigger on offer… something much, much bigger! This is exactly what happens when a little boy accompanies his mum on a busy shopping trip. Just when the little boy thinks he's going to die of boredom, something very unusual happens… shops everywhere are giving away a very special treat with every purchase ~ a free dinosaur! It's a dream come true… except, what exactly do you do with these Jurassic treats? And how do you convince mum to let you keep them?
