For those of you not into LEGO, LEGO Ideas is a website where users share their builds and, provided the goal of 10,000 supporters is achieved within a time frame, the build has a chance of getting put into production.

“Ho, ho, ho there, fellow dinosaur lovers! Yes, it is I, Dr. Bella Claus, at your service once again! And where would I be without my loyal and trusty steed, Bethdolf?”

“I told you not to call me that, Doc!”

“Oh, come along, Beth, you were the one who refused to wear the elf hat again.

Review: Dino Skulls (Toob by Safari Ltd.)

From the savage teeth of tyrannosaurs to the intimidating horns of ceratopsians to the endearing crests of hadrosaurs and to the peculiar noggins of pachycephalosaurs, dinosaur skulls truly are stupendous. I previously reviewed Safari’s toob of prehistoric mammal skulls; now I’ll be looking at their Dino Skulls toob.

Review: Stygimoloch skeleton (Dino Excavation Kit by Geoworld)

Review and photographs by DrWheelieMobile, edited by Suspsy

A staple of any paleo-nut’s childhood – and source of dread for said paleo-nut’s parents! – were so-called excavation kits, which usually took the form of plaster blocks with parts of a skeleton model jumbled inside. Equipped with a toy hammer, the task was to ‘excavate’ the pieces, then to assemble them once they were all found.

Ueno Park is a 113 acre public park in Tokyo. Similar to Balboa Park in San Diego or Central Park in New York City, Ueno Park has several museums and other attractions within its boundaries. In 2017, gashapon company Figure Miyage created a series of figures paying tribute to the eclectic features that can be seen in Ueno Park, including a figure of the Tyrannosaurus skeleton that is displayed in the National Museum of Nature and Science.

Review: Ancient Fossils (Toob by Safari Ltd)

4 (22 votes)

Of all the product lines offered by stalwart manufacturer Safari Ltd, the “Toob®” line gives them the freest rein to explore unusual taxa. I’m personally fondest of the Toobs that furnish small versions of small animals that might scale well with Safari’s full-size figurines. We’ve reviewed some of their most interesting Toobs featuring “alive” animals here, here, here, here, and here.

Review: Stegosaurus (Dinotales Series 2 by Kaiyodo)

After the Lion of the Jurassic, allow me to introduce you one of its coevals, potential prey and  contender in popularity: Stegosaurus.

Ever since it’s discovery by Othniel Charles Marsh during the infamous Bone Wars, Stegosaurus gained a lot of attention and became one of the most popular dinosaur world wide.

Review: Tyrannosaurus rex (Boneyard Pets)

We’ve reviewed over 100 Tyrannosaurus toys on the Dinosaur Toy Blog,  more than any other dinosaur species. T. rex is the dinosaur that keeps on giving! And so here’s one more for your consideration, the Tyrannosaurus ‘table-top’-sized skeleton by Boneyard Pets.

Review: Triceratops (Boneyard Pets)

1.5 (4 votes)
Earlier this year I unboxed a delivery of Boneyard Pets  and subsequently filmed myself building them (see below). Now that I’ve constructed them, let’s take a closer look at one. A couple of years ago Dan previously considered the Tupuxuara in this line, so apologies in advance for belabouring some of his points.

Review: Prehistoric Mammal Skulls (Toob by Safari Ltd.)

Prehistoric skulls, be they those of dinosaurs, pterosaurs, sea monsters, mammals, amphibians, or any other beasts, are always things of beauty and intrigue. Let us take a look at this interesting variety of mammal skulls from Safari Ltd. There are eight in total, all coloured medium brown with a pale brown wash, and all with their names printed on the undersides.

Review: Mammoth Skeleton Tent with Cavemen (Playmobil)

As storm clouds gather overhead, a trio of human hunters work quickly to finish erecting their shelter. Fortunately, the mammoth that they recently killed and butchered has provided far more than just food. Its large, sturdy bones form an effective structure while its thick fur hide acts as a waterproof covering.

Review: Stegosaurus (Mini)(Skeleflex by Wild Planet)

1.6 (11 votes)
Despite its immense fame and popularity, there are not very many complete specimens of Stegosaurus. Most of the skeletons you see in museums are actually composites of multiple animals. The most intact one is currently “Sophie,” a young adult that resides in the Natural History Museum in London, U.K.

Review: Tyrannosaurus rex (Mini)(Skeleflex by Wild Planet)

2.1 (10 votes)
Today I’ll be taking a look at an unusual addition to the Dinosaur Toy Blog: Skeleflex. Released by a company called Wild Planet back in 2007, the line was described in its press release as “a creative ball-and-socket building system that puts kids in control. Its interchangeable bone-shaped pieces can be combined to make aliens, dinosaurs, and other fantastical creatures that move in a lifelike manner.” Sounds interesting, no?

Review: Acrocanthosaurus Skeleton (Kaiyodo Dinotales Series 3)

4.9 (8 votes)
While most of us prefer to collect dinosaur figures representing living animals there is something to be said about skeletal reconstructions as well. After all, we don’t really know what most dinosaurs looked like, almost everything we know about them comes from the ancient bones we’ve dug up and reassembled.

Review: Tupuxuara Skeleton Kit (Boneyard Pets)

3.8 (6 votes)
If you’re around my age, you probably remember the old balsa wood dinosaur skeleton kits. After inhaling all the sawdust from sanding and pulling the splinters out of your fingers, you had a fairly serviceable model that didn’t even require glue to assemble (assuming the cheap wood didn’t break apart, which it often did).
