Wow! Stuff’s Real FX Baby T. rex confirmed as Walmart “blockbuster” toy

Published on: 24th August 2023

Wow! Stuff’s second in the series of Real FX toys under the Jurassic World and Jurassic Park franchise has reached the top of the charts at Walmart.

In collaboration with Universal Pictures and Amblin Entertainment, Wow! Stuff’s latest Real FX line has been released to celebrate the Jurassic World and Jurassic Park franchise’s 30th anniversary.

Wow! Stuff’s Real FX toys are designed under the brand’s remit to ‘Look Real. Feel Real. Sound Real.’ and are produced in collaboration with tier 1 licensed brands. The collection has already attracted a suite of awards nominations, much to the team’s delight.

The announcement by the United States Toy Foundation that Wow! Stuff’s Real FX Baby T. rex is a Toy of the Year Award (TOTY) Finalist was immediately followed by news that Walmart has also chosen it as one of its top toys for Christmas, naming it a blockbuster. The results of the TOTY awards will be announced on 29th September.

The brand-new Real FX Jurassic Park Baby T. rex celebrates the 30th Anniversary since Jurassic Park hit the big screen and is a hyper-realistic animatronic baby dinosaur operated by the user via an authentic faux leather park ranger’s handling glove. Real FX T. rex has more than 35 actions, touch sensors and sound effects from the movie, combined with life-like intuitive movements.

Managing director, Dawn Lavalette, said: “Being named as a Walmart top toy for Christmas is very special. To have this come at the same time as being named finalist at the world’s biggest toy awards, the TOTY, is humbling but also fires our team on to know that anything is possible and that if we can dream it, we can make it, and we can sell it.”
