A Review of the Feathered Dinosaurs Model Set (Safari Ltd) by Everything Dinosaur

As a result of a number of requests received, team members at Everything Dinosaur are making a number of video reviews of prehistoric animal replicas manufactured by Safari Ltd.  We have prepared a short (five minutes and seventeen seconds), video showcasing the “Feathered Dinos Toob”.

This set of twelve dinosaur models features the non-avian feathered dinosaurs -Microraptor, Dilong, Velociraptor, Sinornithosaurus, Caudipteryx and Beipiaosaurus.  The non-feathered replicas in this set include T. rex, Apatosaurus, a lovely Chasmosaurus, Protoceratops, Pachycephalosaurus and a Psittacosaurus* model.

Psittacosaurus* – when this set was being designed, Psittacosaurus as a member of the bird-hipped dinosaurs and related to the horned dinosaurs such as Styracosaurus and Triceratops was not thought to be feathered. Only fossils of lizard-hipped feathered dinosaurs had been found at the time.  However, recent fossil discoveries have revealed that Psittacosaurs may have been covered in bristle-like proto-feathers.

This dinosaur “Toob”, as our American friends call this model set, is popular with collectors as it contains a number of splendid dinosaur models including a wonderful model of Protoceratops.  All the models are hand-painted and supplied in their own acetate tube with a cleverly designed closing cap.  This dinosaur model set is also very popular with children as it is great for creative play.
