Allosaurus (Pencil Sharpener by Unknown Company)

Dinosaur products extend far beyond the familiar realms of CollectA, Papo, Safari, and other such companies. From clothing to cereals to shower heads, there’s not much our prehistoric pals can’t sell. Today I’ll be reviewing an Allosaurus that keeps my pencils nice and sharp. I’ve had this sharpener since I was a small child, but …

Brachiosaurus (DINOS! Mega-Mesozoic Fun)

Here’s an interesting rendition of what is probably the world’s most famous sauropod (judging from Brachiosaurus’ appearances in the JP franchise and the number of toys it boasts to its name on the blog) that I came across at Mastermind Toys here in Ontario. I haven’t determined the actual manufacturer, but it originates from China …

Dilophosaurus (Moveable Toy by 3rd Party/Gosnell)

The 3rd party market can produce some surprisingly good results sometimes – although it’s still not always by their own original merit.

Dilophosaurus Plush Pair (Unknown Company)

Dilophosaur fans of multiple varieties get the best deal with this pair of charmingly well-constructed plush predators of semi-anonymous origin.

Dimetrodon (unknown)

Review and Photos by Bokisaurus Nostalgia: “a sentimental longing or wistful affection for the past, typically for a period or place with happy personal associations”. So you might be wondering why open a review with this word and it’s definition. A toy, especially one that has been with you for decades can elicit such sentiment, …

Dinosaur miniatures (unknown company)

Review and photos by Rebecca O’Neill, edited by Dinotoyblog. This group of ten novelty, cartoonish dinosaurs were purchased on Ebay in 2018, and don’t seem to be available anymore. Very much in the style of The Land Before Time or Dinosaurs the television show from the 1990s, they are a variety of well known dinosaurs rendered in a caricature …

Helicoprion (Unknown)

In today’s global internet market, searching for a particular figure could prove daunting and often overwhelming especially if information about that particular item is scarce. Online site such as ebay, Aliexpress, and even Amazon are like the vast abyss with thousands of items flooding our senses.This figure we are reviewing today is a gem that …

Kronosaurus (Unknown)

There was a time when Kronossaurus was the most famous marine reptile. It was part of the elite group of dinosaurs (and other prehistoric animals), sort of like the Mesozoic version of the Justice League. These assortments would be the core group to be featured in the 1950’s Marx set, the first real toy set to focus on …

Ornithomimid (unknown company)

This little fellow is a good example of my preference of somewhat unusual dinosaur figures. It is a little ornithomimid and neither do I know the company nor its exact species description. It represents a very old way of posing dinosaurs, kangaroo-style with a broken tail and hands that remind me at the paw of …

Pinacosaurus (Unknown Company)

Review and photos by Takama, edited by Suspsy Today’s figure was bought at a Mexican Fiesta back in 2014. It is from the same unknown line as this T. rex reviewed back in 2011, and it is a pretty sizable piece of plastic. At first glance, it is apparent that they intended to make a …

Placerias (unknown company)

Today I`d like to review a figure that is a quite uncommon in several ways. First of all, it technically already has a review on this blog as part of a box set, but I felt it deserves its own entry. Secondly, it is a Placerias, a species that, despite its certain popularity for appearing …

Spinosaurus (Unknown Company)

Review and photographs by Rajvinder “IrritatorRaji” Phull, edited by Suspsy Behold Spinosaurus, a ‘marmite’ animal among dinosaur enthusiasts. Love it or hate it, you can’t deny how fascinating this beast is. It’s a creature still shrouded in mystery, much like the statue we’ll be looking at today. I’m not really sure what company produced this …

Tyrannosaurus (unknown company)

Review and photos by Conrad (AKA neovenator08). Edited by Plesiosauria. Well, I’m no expert in dinosaurs or dinosaur toys compared to most, but I feel obliged as this toy is the pride of my (tiny) collection and there is no review so far. So, from what I can see this is quite a good representation …

Tyrannosaurus rex (Unknown Company)

Review and photos by Philsauria, edited by Suspsy Tyrannosaurus rex is without a doubt one iconic animal, one of the handful of dinosaurs that most of the general public can identify on sight, and as far as prehistoric animal toys are concerned, there wouldn’t be too many making dinosaurs that didn’t have this guy in …

Tyrannosaurus rex (Unknown company, Walmart)

Review and photos by Bryan Divers, edited by Plesiosauria Tyrannosaurus rex is undoubtedly the most famous dinosaur of all. There’s nothing quite like the T. rex. In fact, it is the only dinosaur known commonly by both its genus and species name. As Bob Bakker says, “a name like Tyrannosaurus rex is simply irresistible to …
