Toy supplier Re:Creation is hoping prehistoric monsters will invade UK playgrounds this year.

The company’s Dinowaurs, rolling out now, is a collectible game that lets kids use cards to stage battles between plastic dinosaur figures.

Priced £1.99 a pack, it joins the raft of blind-packed pocket-money products that have hit the market in the past 12 months, but Re:Creation hopes children’s love of dinosaurs and the game’s previous success in Europe will make Dinowaurs a winner.
