Velociraptor (Film Universe)
There are three distinct variations of Velociraptor which were cloned by InGen, not counting sexual dimorphism seen within each individual version. However, despite the surface level variations, each sub-species remains relatively similiar in terms of physical attributes. Each species is roughly 6 feet tall…

This Jurassic Park Power Wheels Jeep is the Toy You Always Wanted!

Did you ever want your very own Jurassic Park Jeep while growing up, but not find the right toy to scratch that itch? While Kenner sold a great action figure sized item, there was never a proper driveable vehicle for kids. Much to my disappointment, a Jurassic Jeep was not part of my life, though some kids with creative parents were more lucky.

Thankfully, 2018 has remedied this longstanding conflict for all.

The first Jurassic toy since Mattel snagged the license from Hasbro has been unveiled, and while it may not be what you expected, it’s a ton of fun. The reveal did not come from a press release, or trade show, but rather Walmart Canada, who already have the item for sale: the Fisher-Price Power Wheels Jurassic Park Jeep.

The Jeep pictured is #18, the vehicle Ellie, Grant, and Malcolm rode in to the park from the Helicopter. Oh how I wish I could have had this growing up. The official product description has this to say:

The Jurassic-Rex and velociraptors are on the loose! Your young adventurer knows just what to do—hop into their Power Wheels Jeep Wrangler vehicle and get moving! With awesome Jurassic Park graphics and styling, exciting dino-chase sounds, and a real working light bar, kids will feel like they’re driving the real thing! Racing at a max speed of 5 mph over hard surfaces and grass with Power-Lock brakes and a parent-controlled high-speed lock out, young off-roaders will love steering Jurassic adventures in this exciting ride-on!

Working lights, sounds, and a top speed of 5-mph? What’s not to love! Just don’t get chased by an actual Tyrannosaurus Rex at those speeds.

Speaking of highspeed T. rex chases, this Jeep also features a nod Jeep #10, which our heroes in Jurassic Park used to narrowly avoid being chomped by the most famous Tyrannosaur alive (sorry, Sue). Much like the iconic scene in the film where Roberta (Aka Rexy) is seen in the Wranglers mirrors roaring menacingly, this Power-Wheel vehicle features stickers of the iconic dino in the mirrors.

Be sure to check out Walmarts website for more images and to purchase the Jeep if it’s up your alley! This surely is not the only item coming from Mattel for Jurassic Parks 25th anniversary, prior to the Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom lineup – so stay tuned for more updates!

  1. I think that this Jeep looks quite realistic. The toy creators did a wonderful job. I Can’t wait until Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom is released on DVD!

  2. this is so cool! I’ll have to buy this for my little brother. I’m sure I will- I mean he will- enjoy playing with it. Also, those stickers on the mirrors are perfect!

    1. I’m 27 and think it would make an awesome outside decoration. Will probably wait for a sale if they make a good quantity, don’t currently know anyone who could actually sit in one.

  3. This toy looks really promising for the vehicle toy line.i do hope we’ll get a look at the dinosaurs and action figures but this is a step up from Hasbro.

  4. This looks awesome! I’m so happy we are getting remote control vehicles for the toyline (even the gyroshperes will be remote control! 😀 that will be cool cause for example say 2 kids are remaking a scene where the humans capture the carnotaurus, one kid won’t have to push the vehicle around to mimick it driving! It would be remote control!

  5. And here I am two years in on my JP PW project and it’s about 90% done, wrong exterior paint granted, but I added a lot more details.

    Could do with at least a sticker of the actual JP license plates. The seats could be the original hunter green (I added the tan pinstriping to mine) and the dashboard grey, but hey, the important thing is that overall it LOOKS like the original. But not those headlights… always have to look the newer models…

  6. The Jeep pictured is #18, the vehicle Ellie, Grant, and Malcolm rode in to the park from the Helicopter

    er….it is completely different to the No.18 Jeep.
