Maybe. Could also be a stegosaurus, triceratops or something else--that’s part of the fun of paleontological parenthood. Just submerge the 4-1/2” tall ersatz dinosaur egg into cool water and wait 48-72 hours while it cracks like a real egg and the baby dino grows to a be a foot long. If your mother won’t let you skip your bath for a few days (they’re like that, mothers, no scientific discipline), just use any container bigger than a 12” dinosaur.
Fun little plastic farm set with a vaguely retro-Euro look. Comes complete with a farmer, a farmer's wife and a farmer's daughter, all 2" tall, along with (3) chickens, (3) geese, (3) rabbits, (4) cows and (6) pigs. The barn is 2-1/4" tall x 3-1/4" x 2". Includes barn doors, fencing and a feed trough.
The possibilities are endless. You get a set of (4) stuffed rubber chickens, 8" long and in (4) different, but chickenlike, skin tones, plus an 8-3/4" dia target to toss them at. Throw the target on the ground then fling, roll, or bounce the chickens toward it. Sort of chicken bocce, or poultry petanque. Includes game ideas and a score pad! In between chicken-throwing seasons, they make a mighty nice display lined up on the mantle.
From the world of Collect 'Em All, these uber-cute little foam animal figures are 1" to 1-1/2" across with a little 3" hook-n-loop band on the back so they can be attached to fingers, flip-flops, shoelaces, backpacks, wherever kiddies think they belong. You'll get (4) different ones from the selection of frogs, pandas, monkeys, elephants, kittens, bats, fishes, penguins and toucans.
Not a baby alligator (those are all in the NY sewers) but a 16” long replica of an adult ’gator with great detail. In authentically colored plastic (PVC), it’s just slightly squishy in the middle, like most of us, and displays full dentition. Would make a lovely dashboard ornament for the University of Florida alum in the family.
These just in from Madagascar. Paul, our Associate Director of Lizard Evaluation, tells us this is a “very good quality Parson’s chameleon” complete with “warty horns and curled up tail,” but in rubber. Measures approx 13” long in green and beige and, unlike the real thing, won’t be changing color all the time.
Put this cool heavy paper cut-out T-Rex together, then paint him or her (hard to tell on a T-Rex) whatever design and colors you like with the included paint set and brush. Then connect it to the little battery-powered gear box and watch the head, tail and arm do its "roaring action." You pick from the pink box or the blue box, but the Rexes are identical. (Don't ask.)
Tired of all those monotone brown teddy bears? Who isn’t? Try a bear who’s not afraid to mix patterns. These bears have six or seven different prints, which only adds to their whimsy, and, of course, the more whimsical the bear, the easier they are to love. These have bean-bag butts, too, so they sit up and take notice. Approx 12” tall.
These colorful molded rubber dinosaur figures are 4" to 7" long, depending, and include a velociraptor, stegosaurus, pterodactyl and brachiosaurus, among others. We'll pick (2) different prehistoric beasts for you from our menagerie of detailed, high-quality models, which could be used for learning as much as playing.
