Review: Ammonit (Bullyland)

4.7 (6 votes)

As promised, here’s the follow up to the recent Bullyland “Belemnit” review, another take of German company Bullyland to prehistoric molluscs. Another, you’d ask? Yes, while most toy companies do not bother with prehistoric molluscs at all or just did so very recently (as Safari, Schleich or CollectA), Bullyland dashed out this, said “Belemnit” and yet another “Ammonit” as early as 1998.

Ammonites are one of the most iconic of all fossil groups. Once thought to be snakes turned to stone in medieval times, these ancient cephalopods are known throughout the world, and are important fossils for many purposes, especially in dating as they are exceptional index fossils.

Review: Ammonite (Wild Safari by Safari Ltd)

4.6 (18 votes)
The shelled cephalopods known as ammonites first appeared in the Devonian and then flourished all the way to the very end of the Cretaceous. They came in a wide variety of shapes and they ranged in size from ones you could hold in your palm to ones with shells measuring more than two metres in diameter.

Review: Ammonoid (Paleozoic Pals)

4.8 (5 votes)
First off, just to get it out of the way, this is not an ammonite. This is an ammonoid, the broader group to which ammonites belong. While ammonites lived through the Jurassic and Cretaceous the group ammonoidea first appeared 400 million years ago in the Devonian. Thus, here we have a plush ammonoid, not an ammonite which would have no place in a line of toys representing Paleozoic fauna.

Review: Loch Ness Monster (Monsters in My Pocket by Matchbox, Series 2)

2.3 (6 votes)

Monsters in My Pocket was a toy franchise that started in the 80s that consisted of a series of small, rubber figures. These figures were each only a few inches tall and could each come in a variety of solid colors. What makes this toy line special is that each figure is modeled after a certain creature that exists in some sort of real culture.

Review by Dan Liebman – Dan’s Dinosaurs
Regular visitors to the DinoToyBlog know that I enjoy reviewing every new piece in this series, but I really wanted our resident paleontologist Dr. Adam Stuart Smith to have a go at this one; truly, I doubt there would be anyone better suited to this task.

Review: Ornithomimid (unknown company)

3.3 (7 votes)
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 a rabbit when it is standing on its hind legs.

Review: Pterosaurs (Mini)(Chap Mei)

2.7 (11 votes)
As we’ve seen here in the past, Chap Mei’s prehistoric figures generally lean more towards the preposterous than the precise. Joining their larger brother in the sky are these freaky little flyers.

First, take a gander at this pair. Their toothy, keel-tipped bills might suggest members of the family Ornithocheiridae were it not for their long tails ending in leaf-shaped vanes, which are typical of the family Rhamphorhynchidae.

Review and photos by Lanthanotus, edited by Suspsy
Remember that long lost time when you had to search for an unknown term in a tremendous lexicon, through library research or by making contact with friends via mail in paper form (because phone calls were so expensive), post being delayed by two weeks and another two until you got an answer?

Review: Trilobite (Bullyland)

5 (5 votes)
Review and photographs by Indohyus, edited by Suspsy
Trilobites. Next to ammonites, they are one of the most well-known fossil groups. Known throughout the world from thousands of species, from the tiny to the giant and from spiny to burrowing, no one can deny their fame. From the Cambrian to the Permian, trilobites radiated across the globe, allowing them to become excellent index fossils.
