Check Out The New Switch & Go Dino® – SkySlicer the Allosaurus™

This Switch & Go Dino® post has been brought to you by VTech.  All opinions are mine.

I love when companies add a bit of humor and wit to their products.  It just makes things more fun and less serious.  Knock Knock is all about fun and you'll find that evident as you look through the products on their website.  They offer cool stuff from gifts, books, notepads, journals, all with a witty twist to it.
