Review and photographs by Loon, edited by Suspsy.

If you’ve ever scoured through dinosaur toy lots on eBay, you’ll probably be familiar with a seemingly ever-present cast of figures. Vintage Carnegies, K&M figures, and Battat Edmontonia bootlegs are numerous enough that they should really be classified as vermin. However, you’ll occasionally find a figure unlike anything you’ve ever seen before.

Review and photos by Faelrin, edited by Suspsy

Parasaurolophus is easily one of the most recognizable and famous herbivorous dinosaurs, and ornithopods along with Iguanodon and Edmontosaurus. The long, hollow tube like crest is its most distinctive feature, easily recognizable, and setting it apart from most hadrosaurids, except for its close kin Charonosaurus and the newly described Tlatolophus.

Review: Parasaurolophus (skeleton) (Dino Horizons by COG Ltd)

Now here’s a company whose products have yet to experience the nerdy scrutiny of the Dinosaur Toy Blog. COG Ltd, manufacturers of educational toys, produce a line of dinosaur-themed gubbins named ‘Dino Horizons‘ (beware: site contains horribly inaccurate life restorations and the phrase “T-Rex”. And loads of Flash).

Review: Parasaurolophus (Soft model by Favorite Co. Ltd.)

Parasaurolophus walkeri is one of the  most widely recognised and much-loved hadrosaur species, and no dinosaur toy line is complete without it. (Sorry, P. tubicen and P. cyrtocristatus.) It’s only proper, then, that Favorite include it among their ‘soft model’ lineup.

Review: Parasaurolophus (Soft Model Series 2 by Favorite Co. Ltd.)

Here I am again with another review for another Favorite dinosaur. No, I don’t mean it is my favorite but rather made by the Favorite Company who it seems feel so confident in their models that they changed their name from Kinto to Favorite. It still feels weird to say the word favorite not as an adjective but as the name of a company.

Review and photographs by Takama, edited by amargasaurus cazaui and Suspsy
On August 11 2014, I made a discovery that took the dinosaur toy community by storm. For those of you who are new, that discovery was finding the first of the newly rebooted Battat line of dinosaurs called “The Dan LoRusso Collection,” which at the time consisted of four species that are available for purchase at Target stores throughout the USA.

Review: Parasaurolophus (The Lost World: Jurassic Park by Kenner)

4.7 (22 votes)
In the week leading up to the May 1997 opening of The Lost World: Jurassic Park, one of my local radio stations held a daily contest where listeners could phone in and win movie tickets by correctly spelling a dinosaur’s name. After a couple of failed attempts, I managed to get on the air and win (easily).

Review: Parasaurolophus (Tsukuda Hobby Collection)

Review and photos by docronnie moraleta, edited by Suspsy
Parasaurolophus is known from only a handful of specimens, but somehow it has become one of the most popular dinosaurs around, maybe because of its very interesting cranial crest.

Like all Tsukuda figures from the standard 13 piece set in the 1980s’, this vintage Parasaurolophus is made of hollow vinyl plastic in a multi-piece construction and moulded into one piece; hence the evident appearance of seams along the neck, extremities, and tail.

Review: Parasaurolophus (Wild Safari by Safari Ltd)

Review and photographs by Laura aka “Paleona”, edited by Plesiosauria.
Hadrosaurs may not be as exciting as toothy theropods, as elaborately ornamented as ceratopsians, or as grand in size as sauropods, but I’ve always had a fondness for the “duck-bills”. There’s a certain charm in their unique shape and distinctive crests; I like to imagine them peacefully grazing in the prehistoric swamps, trumpeting to their family members. Parasaurolophus is the most easily recognized of all hadrosaurs, and is the star of todays review!

Review and photos by Nathan ‘Takama’ Morris, edited by amargasaurus cazaui and Suspsy
When it comes to ornithopods, the  only one that ever seems to get a toy is Parasaurolophus. It is therefore no surprise that the only ornithopod that has graced the Schleich World of History collection is this classic hadrosaur.

Kids perspective by William, edited by Laticauda

First impressions can be entirely wrong .
When I first saw a picture of the 2017 Safari Ltd. Parasaurolophus, I didn’t think very highly of it.   In the stock photo from Safari’s website, I thought it looked rather plain and uninteresting. 

Review: Prehistoric Animals (Panini, review part 1)

Sticker albums are a staple of many a childhood and they were certainly a part of mine. However, unlike my school  contemporaries in the early 1990s, I didn’t deal with stickers of footballers or garbage pail kids, all my swapsies were dinosaur stickers of course! And the toys that came with them…

Panini’s Prehistoric Animals sticker album has been published in several editions over the decades going back to the 1970s.

Review: Prehistoric Diorama (Usborne)

4.7 (14 votes)

Paper is usually not the material of choice for collectors of any sort. I anyway want to introduce you to something that may be of interest for a dinosaur collector, though it are probably not the figures….

The introduced cut out model was first released in 1993 under the title “Make these Dinosaurs” and the art of it, especially the dinosaur desgin, certainly represents this time.

Review: Prehistoric Tube A (CollectA)

4.3 (14 votes)
Following in the footsteps of Safari Ltd and Papo, CollectA burst into the world of miniatures in late 2015. Today we’ll be looking at Prehistoric Tube A, which contains no less than ten figures of some of the most popular dinosaurs and other extinct animals. The tube itself measures 27 cm long, is made of transparent hard plastic, opens like a chest, and fastens shut securely with a clasp.
