Conquering the Earth Schleich T. rex Dinosaur Model

The three new Schleich models have just arrived.  These dinosaurs, come from the company’s “Conquering the Earth” replica range.  The models are Tyrannosaurus rex, a Carnotaurus and a model of a Velociraptor.  These are all dinosaurs that the Germany-based company has modelled on previous occasions.  For example, several Velociraptor figures are currently available and Schleich’s history of making Carnotaurus and T. rex replicas can be traced all the way back to the early days of the long retired “Saurus” series.

Tactile, Creative Play

Over the last few years, Schleich have largely focused on producing very colourful dinosaur models, which are stylistic and aimed at young dinosaur model fans.  An emphasis has been placed on creating models that have textured skins and a distinctive tactile quality.  The models have earned praise from teachers and home educationalists as these dinosaurs are great for kinaesthetic-themed sensory play.  At Everything Dinosaur, our teaching team have recommended a number of these replicas to one-to-one teachers and teaching assistants to help children learn more about the properties of materials through sensory exploration.  The big broad feet provide no stability problems and these models are very useful for helping children to develop their co-ordination and manipulating skills.

A nod is given in the direction of some of the latest research, hence the feathers on the forearms of the latest Velociraptor figure.  All the models are robust and sturdy and they stand up well to even the most enthusiastic play of your typical Foundation Stage or Key Stage 1 young palaeontologist.

Flashes of Yellow

The model has been painted in a dark green colour.  However, the underside is a pale daffodil yellow and this colour scheme is also reproduced around the articulated lower jaw and on the feet.  There is a subtle line of osteoderms running along the back of this dinosaur and down to the base of the tail.
