Dinosaur books and toys – Christmas Gift Guide 2023

Many kids are fascinated by dinosaurs – maybe it's the size or the mystery. Dinosaur-themed toys and books make great gifts for kids to sneakily enhance their learning, whilst also delighting them on Christmas Day.

Here are my top pics this year after having a good scout around what's on offer this year, as well as a few old favourites, and – of course – some lovely Miles Kelly dinosaur books, too!
