Did your children like dinosaurs or do they?

I have noticed that my son has taken an interest in dinosaurs. When I take him out to the store to pick up books, he always picks up books that are about dinosaurs and he also seems to really like television shows and movies that have dinosaurs in them. He is almost two. He also loves trucks and cars, but I am wondering did your children love dinosaurs when they were little? I think I did, but I remember being more of a cat person when I was a little girl, to be honest. I think that it is really cute seeing him get excited about dinosaurs, though.

I can't say I remember any of my four being particularly fascinated by dinosaurs. My neighbour's son was last year, though!

My grandchildren love dinosaurs, we have lots of plastic ones lying around the house and the nearly four year old picked one up yesterday and asked "Is this a pterosaur?" And yes, it was. Their memory is great at that age. Wish mine was as good!

I don't have kids, but when I was one I liked dinosaurs alright. Cats were my thing, though. I loved cats.

He mostly read books about them, but he got a bunch of dino-themed toys for his birthday. Some were just toy dinosaurs, but others were more educational. One involved "digging" the dino out like a paleontologist would. Apparently, that was enough for him to decide he didn't care for dinosaurs anymore!

When my adult son was a toddler , he loved Barney the Dinosaur and had a stuffed one that he slept with.
