Plush Dinosaurs
« on: January 04, 2017, 05:17:48 AM »
I looked around the forum but couldn't find a thread on plush dinos and other prehistoric critters.  I would have sworn there was one but oh well.  Anyone else collect paleo plushes?

I loved these guys, I've had the Rex and Stego since I was 5 years old.  Just today I received the Triceratops he's apparently pretty rare.

Oh no, I won't have that here. ;)  lol

One of the great things about plush dinos is no one really expects accuracy from them. Anyone can collect them for just the squishy goodness and having a totally unbreakable prehistoric pal, no paints rubs, broken teeth, ect!  ;D

Ooooh plush squishy dinosaurs! Very cool, although I wish plush toy manufacturers would make more dinosaurs than the Big 5. (I'm referring to Trike, Rex, Steggie, Bronto, and Velociraptor.) Those 5 take up 95% of all the spotlight.

Like any dino-toy group they generally go with what's popular.  But there are some exceptions.

http://dinotoyblog.com/2016/05/07/velociraptor-dakin/
Jurassic Park is frightning in the dark
All the dinosaurs are running wild
Someone let T. Rex out of his pen
I'm afraid those things'll harm me
'Cause they sure don't act like Barney
And they think that I'm their dinner, not their friend
Oh no

The only prehistoric plushies I have at the moment are the Jurassic World T. rex that was made for the bed set, and the Paleozoic Pals Ammonoid. I'm kind of running out of room for plushies (I keep them in a corner at the edge of my bed, it's getting crowded), so I'm not sure how many other prehistoric ones I will pick up down the line, though I do want to get more of those Paleozoic Pals at some point.

Some of these are super cute! I had a plush sauropod, 'Tina the Argentinosaurus', who has since gone the way of all things, and a dragon that I called a Rhamphorhynchus, who I still have. Then there is 'Genghis', a Wild Republic Velociraptor who I picked up on my last visit to the NHM in London because he was the only one in the shop with anything approaching feathers! This does not include one kiwi, one robin and innumerable owls, all of which I'm ashamed to say I still have roosting on top of my wardrobe... :-[

I don't have a ton of plushes but mine consist mostly of mammoths. I'd post pictures but most of them are in storage.The Dakin JP toys are nice but if I'd buy any more they'd be the applause dinosaurs that made an appearance in JP.
Blade, that pteranodon looks a lot like one I saw in a museum shop last week, except the wings were big enough for kids to wear them.

Schleich also had a set of them in 1994:
http://www.schleichtiersammler.de/00000093100baed23/01fe409c2e13d549e/index.html
Notice something about those?
Yes, they are based on the Carnegie Collection, although the "Brachiosaurus" clearly looks grumpy, as is common with Schleich's as opposed to the happy one of the Carnegie.

I recently purchased Viergacht's Deinonychus plushie!  She's so soft and cuddly! ;D



A predator finds prey...


*ka-click* Orrrrr perhaps not?


Two predators set off together!
I'm excited for REBOR's Acro!  Can't ya tell?

I want to make a few more like that. I have some really neat glass eyes on order from China.

I saw that one recently, cool concept!  This little guy I have i picked up years ago at a random beach trip , says he was made by novelty inc, www.noveltyinc.com

I used to have many of the Applause dinos, but lost them after my mom died and we moved. I still have the blue pteranodon though.

Schleich also had a set of them in 1994:

Those are really cool, would like to find the Elasmosaur one.

That's a beautiful Deinonychus plush, are those real feathers?

Thankie! It's actually faux fur, it does a great feather impression, though.
