When if comes to scientific accuracy, Kaiyodo did a lovely job with this tiny model.

Part 4 of Kaiyodo Dinoland Natural History review series
Anchiceratops is one of those dinosaurs that seems to have been forgotten in today’s popular culture. Despite being large and having a unique frill, you don’t really hear much about it, let alone see it in documentaries about dinosaurs, or even a short cameo in movies.

Hello everyone! Welcome to yet another EmperorDinobot(TM) dinosaur review! Today we are going to give a look at these quirky bendable dinosaurs from Dorda! Made in 1987 (I think I would have to lift up their skirts to make sure it was ’87 or ’88), these dinosaurs look a wee bit like the Playskool Definitely Dinosaur figures from the late 80s, but definitely have their own aesthetic and gimmick in order to keep kids and strange adult dinosaur toy collectors entertained for hours!

Part 1 of Kaiyodo Dinoland Natural History review series
Greetings dinofans and welcome to another review! I promise its not another Spinosaur review this time! Haha.
Kaiyodo is perhaps more well known for their small size set of prehistoric figures, such as the Dinotales and Chocholasaurus.Many years ago, Kaiyodo released a collection of large, hollow vinyl figure called Dinoland Collection of Natural History Series.
Chasmosaurus is by no means the largest ceratopsian, reaching only around 4.8 metres in length and 2.2 tons in mass. Nor does it boast a particularly intimidating or bizarre array of horns like its fellow Canadians Regaliceratops, Styracosaurus, and Triceratops. Nevertheless, it was one of the most successful ceratopsians of its time, and one of the very best known thanks to multiple fossil specimens.
Tyrannosaurus, Triceratops, Velociraptor, Mosasaurus, and Pteranodon. What a familiar lineup! This is a set decidedly influenced by the hype surrounding the latest installment in the Jurassic Park franchise, consisting of five iconic creatures from all over the Cretaceous. It’s an intriguing concept, as Kaiyodo is revered for their up-to-date reconstructions, and Jurassic Park is, well, not.
Greetings DinoWaurriors!!! This line is like the science of palaeontology, full of surprises. It has several surprises, from lacking things like Velociraptor or it’s choice of pterosaurs. Here, we see a ceratopsian, and a nomen dubium: Dicaeratops. This animal is actually Nedoceratops, as named by Othniel Marsh, but he died before the work was completed, and it was named Diceratops later, though this was taken already, so was changed to Nedocaeratops.
Cowabunga! Who’d have ever believed a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles product would show up here on the Dinosaur Toy Blog? Well, it’s really not that far-fetched considering that dinosaurs have been included in nearly every single incarnation of the franchise. Today I’ll be looking at one such toy, the “Dingy Dino.”
Dingy, who is clearly intended to be a Triceratops, was released alongside his master Cave-Turtle Leo way back in 1992 as part of the original TMNT line.

Being a heavy collector of the Mattel Jurassic World line, it’s not often I give attention to their fantastic line of minis despite having collected a good portion of them ever since the line’s launch in 2018. In fact, this is probably my first review of these particular types of figures.
Toobs might be the unsung heroes of Safari Ltd.’s toy lines. I see them wherever Safari products are sold, even when their larger, standard-sized kin are absent.
As a young child, I loved splashing around in the tub with my toys. Who didn’t? Most of my bath toys were sharks and whales and other aquatic creatures, but occasionally a plesiosaur would find its way into the mix. My older son, however, enjoys taking his bath with the Classic Big Four: Brontosaurus, Stegosaurus, Triceratops, and Tyrannosaurus rex.
Today, we will be taking a look at Papo’s first tub of miniature dinosaurs, which contains Tyrannosaurus rex, Triceratops, Brachiosaurus, Stegosaurus, Spinosaurus, and Velociraptor. The second tub contains Carnotaurus, Allosaurus, Pteranodon, Dimetrodon, Ankylosaurus and Giganotosaurus. Papo has not yet released a bigger version of Giganotosaurus, although there are still high hopes for it.
