If you can open Kota up (remove the fabric & unscrew whatever pieces),
you might be lucky enough to unjam it, or to move & re-align the gears.
There may be a spring that pushes one or both of the gears together that
may need to be checked too. If the gear teeth are OK but some other
part is broken, you can use 2-part epoxy from Walmart, Michaels, etc.
to fix it. Superglue will not work as it is too weak & brittle.

If the teeth on the gears are stripped, it will be tough. You can try rebuilding
the teeth with 2-part epoxy PUTTY (not glue) or 2-part plumbers putty from
Osh, Home Depot, or Michaels (Mighty Putty). and it may break again,

It might be easiest to call the company and ask about repairs and/or
replacement parts. Good luck!

    I called the company - the Kota is discontinued and they won't work on it - out of luck! Seems Kota had so many problems they won't deal with it any more.

SOURCE: How can I get an instruction manual for Playskool Kota dinosaur

Hasbro has the instructions and replacement parts for many of the Playskool toys on their support site, http://www.hasbro.com/site-map.cfm . The instructions for the Kota the Triceratops are available here: http://www.hasbro.com/common/documents/dad2af771c4311ddbd0b0800200c9a66/61EED7975056900B10DED12F214D6B3E.pdf .

However, they do not have any parts for the Kota and Pals set. You may find the leaf available in an internet auction.

I hope this helps.

Kota manual


According to Amazon, the only thing that comes in Monty's box is Monty, 4 C cell batteries and a "discovery sheet". There are several pages about the Kota dinosaurs with a lot of information including Amazon. I'd suggest contacting Hasbro for the "Discovery Sheet" if you can't get the info from the Amazon page http://www.amazon.com/Playskool-Kota-Pals-Monty-T-Rex/dp/product-description/B001WSCU34/ref=dp_proddesc_0?ie=UTF8&n=165793011&s=toys-and-games or this specialized site about the Kota series.
