When a dinosaur emerges from a portal in your home, it’s time to jump into action! A kids game to get evidence to learn about, care for and have fun with your dinosaur!

Welcome to My Dino Mission AR, created by 42 Kids in partnership with the Natural History Museum. There has been a breach in the space-time continuum and dinosaurs are suddenly appearing in people’s homes all over the globe. And when a dinosaur steps through a portal into your bedroom, it’s time to jump into action!

Your mission is to help the stranded dinosaur return back to its own time period, many millions of years ago! To do this you’ll need to discover the dinosaur’s species, what it eats, likes and needs to survive. Can you use your palaeontological skills to gather evidence and complete your mission to return a dinosaur back home? Using the latest augmented reality technology, you’ll care for your new dino friend within the backdrop of your own bedroom floor or back garden and even take fun photo memories! Do you have what it takes to help your new friend and return it home?

This app is full of missions to engage, entertain and learn through discovery. Includes:
- Caring missions: use what you’ve learned to feed and care for the dinosaur
- Learning missions: Identify the dinosaur species and learn more about the time of the dinosaurs by analysing evidence like footprints or X-Ray photos
- Fun missions: Fun ‘match the caption’ photo missions, such as: can the player take a photo to match the caption - “Hey, get off my head!”

Special Features
- Cool technology! Use of the latest augmented reality (AR) technology to enable a unique blend of your digital & physical worlds
