New Rebor Replicas Due in Stock

Latest Rebor Replicas Due in Stock at Everything Dinosaur

The latest editions to the ever-growing range of Rebor replicas are due to arrive at Everything Dinosaur’s warehouse tomorrow (Friday, 14th August).  We are expecting the new, limited edition hatching Velociraptors replica along with the two dinosaur nest dioramas (Sauropod and Theropod nest).  These items have already cleared European customs and the most up to date information we have is that they have now begun their onward journey with an expected arrival time in the UK later this evening.  If all goes to plan, stock should be in our warehouse sometime on Friday and team members are going to be on standby to make sure that once product has arrived and been checked over it can be on line at Everything Dinosaur within minutes.

Only 1,000 Velociraptor Hatching replicas are being made, this is the second introduction into the “Rebor Club Selection” range and the sculpting team have decided to give their trio of Theropods a retro feel with scaly skins rather than feathers.  It is certainly a most interesting figure.

The other two additions to the Rebor range are the Sauropod dinosaur nest diorama and the Theropod dinosaur nest diorama.  These sets contain twelve removable dinosaur eggs and show that different types of dinosaur created different types of nest and laid differently shaped eggs.

Both Rebor Dinosaur Nest Dioramas will be available From Everything Dinosaur

Everything Dinosaur Tenth Anniversary

Happy Tenth Birthday to Everything Dinosaur

Today, August 1st, marks the tenth anniversary of the founding of Everything Dinosaur.  Hasn’t the time whizzed by!  We wanted to take this opportunity to say a very big thank you to all our thousands of customers, friends, supporters and followers who have been with us on our amazing journey over the last decade.  We really appreciate your support.

Everything Dinosaur Tenth Anniversary

Happy Tenth Birthday!

Happy Tenth Birthday!

First thing to do this morning was to message the winner of our “name the Pterosaur Guidraco” competition.  We will have made somebody’s day and their prize will be sent out shortly.  A super replica of a Guidraco Pterosaur which is in 1:4 scale (CollectA Guidraco venator model).

How do we celebrate our tenth birthday?  We are having a get together this afternoon, hopefully a barbecue and then tomorrow, weather permitting, we are off on a fossil hunt!  Then it’s back to work with preparations for a summer school visit on Monday morning.

As for our tenth anniversary/birthday banner, we believe that tin is the traditional gift for a tenth anniversary so we put things on the banner from our vast product range to do with “tin”.

We have our popular “dinosaurs in a tin” gift set, but what else is there?  Can you spot the connection?

  • There is a model of Argentinosaurus.
  • A Dinosaurs counting set
  • A Tiny Towns Volcano play set

Over the last ten years we have loved every minute (well most of it anyway).  Our mission to be the best supplier of dinosaur toys, models and games remains very much at the heart of our business.

Once again a very big thank you to all our customers from around the world.  Here’s to the next ten years of dinosaur themed adventures.

Take Care When Fossil Hunting on the “Jurassic Coast”

Warning Issued to Holiday Makers

Dorset is one of the prettiest and most majestic of all the English counties.  This summer, there are going to huge numbers of holidaymakers heading down to England’s “Jurassic Coast” and we expect there are going to be great many visitors to picturesque Lyme Regis.  However, as the school holidays have started, we at Everything Dinosaur, think it appropriate to issue a warning about straying too close to the cliffs that occur along the Dorset and Devon coast.

Beautiful Charmouth and Lyme Regis – Very Popular Holiday Destinations

Many locals tell us that this part of the world has its own “mini climate”, it most certainly has lots of sunshine and there is always plenty to do and see in this, in our opinion, one of the most attractive parts of southern England, but we would advise visitors to the beach, especially would-be fossil hunters in the Lyme Regis and Charmouth areas to steer well clear of the cliffs. Rock falls and mudslides are very common and sadly serious accidents and even fatalities can occur.

On July 25th 2012, Everything Dinosaur reported on a fatal incident that occurred at Hive Beach, near Bridport just a few miles east of Charmouth.   Last month, we reported on another landslide fatality, this time from the popular Llanwit Major area of South Wales, another favourite location with fossil hunters.

To read more about this tragic event: Woman Killed by Rock Fall at Popular Fossil Hunting Site in Wales

Whilst areas such as the famous “Ammonite Pavement” that can be seen to the west of the town (Lyme Regis), is located quite far from the cliffs, any rocks and other material that fall are likely to travel quite a distance so it is sensible to heed the advice of locals and ensure that you are a safe distance away from any hazards.  It is also good advice to familiarise yourself with the tide times.  As landslides have altered the shape of the coastline it is all too easy to find yourself getting cut off during an incoming tide.  Everything Dinosaur team members advise always go fossil hunting at a beach location on an outgoing tide.  With so many fossils to be found at Lyme Regis and Charmouth along the foreshore, there is no need to approach the cliffs and a lot of fun can be had searching along the shoreline for fossils in a couple of hours or so as the tide recedes.

Lots of Fossils to Spot Away from the Jurassic Coast Cliffs

 Lyme Regis fossil expert Brandon Lennon commented that there was glorious weather in the Lyme Bay area yesterday, but today, (Sunday), there was quite a gale blowing.  Despite this, large numbers of tourists were on the beach and many of them were too close to the cliffs.

Brandon said:

“People are right up under the cliffs looking for fossils and they should definitely not do this as it is incredibly dangerous.  I think it is going to be very busy in Lyme Regis this summer, even with the occasional little bit of bad weather at times.”

With the popularity of the film “Jurassic World”, the Lyme Regis area can expect record numbers of fossil hunters to visit the area over the summer, but just like Brandon, we advise visitors to the beaches to take care and heed any council notices.

Brandon conducts organised fossil hunting walks and these are a great way to go fossil hunting safely as well as learning about the amazing local geology.  These walks take place on Saturdays, Sundays and Mondays and private bookings can also be made, to learn more about organised, conducted fossil hunting tours: Lyme Regis Fossil Walks

 The Amazing Ammonite Pavement (Monmouth Beach)

A spokesperson from Everything Dinosaur stated:

“Whilst fossil hunting can be a very enjoyable experience for families, we do urge all visitors to take great care when visiting locations such as Charmouth and Lyme Regis.  Landslides are a very common occurrence and going fossil collecting with an expert is a sensible option.”

Countdown to the New CollectA Models

New CollectA Models Due in Shortly

The majority of the new for 2015 CollectA prehistoric animals should be in stock at Everything Dinosaur very shortly.  The models, which include the 1:4 scale Guidraco Pterosaur replica and the feathered Tyrannosaurus rex are currently on the water and they should be arriving at Everything Dinosaur’s warehouse by the end of the month.  The CollectA ranges, including the “Supreme” range, to which the Guidraco scale model belongs, have earned themselves a big reputation amongst dinosaur model fans and collectors for their beautiful designs and attention to detail.  The ranges have been extended recently and new additions will include the “war pig” Daeodon as well as the huge Moropus.

The genus Moropus contains a number of species, all members of the “knuckle-walkers” group of prehistoric mammals (Chalicotherioidea).  New dinosaurs from CollectA include an eagerly awaited Acrocanthosaurus model (expect more news from Rebor on this dinosaur shortly) and more stocks of the popular 1:40 scale CollectA Carcharodontosaurus.

Coming Soon to Everything Dinosaur

New models all available from Everything Dinosaur.

As you can see from the picture above, a marine reptile is also included in these new releases.  The marine reptile is a Temnodontosaurus and it is depicted giving birth, showing that these superbly adapted marine creatures were viviparous (live birth).  Emerging from behind the head of the fearsome Daeodon is the new Smilodon replica, and what a beautiful Sabre-Tooth cat model it is too.

To view Everything Dinosaur’s range of CollectA models: CollectA models

The not to scale series now contains over a hundred prehistoric animal replicas, all of which are available from Everything Dinosaur, we have seen a number of these replicas already and they really are top quality.  The feathered T. rex and the Acrocanthosaurus (A. atokensis) are both new additions to the scale model range (both these dinosaurs are sculpted in 1:40 scale).

To view the scale model series made by CollectA: Prehistoric Animal Models – Scale Models (CollectA)

 Earlier this year, the first of the 2015 prehistoric animals from CollectA were released.  These replicas included a 1:40 scale Pliosaurus, two horned dinosaurs (Medusaceratops and Nasutoceratops), plus the Chinese tyrannosaurid Xiongguanlong and the enormous Titanosaur known as Daxiatitan.

The inclusion of one of our field rulers in the photograph above gives readers and idea of the size of these hand-painted replicas.  The picture shows just some of the new CollectA models, from left to right (as you view the photograph),  we have the green and black, long-necked Daxiatitan, the Ichthyosaur Temodontosaurus, Medusaceratops then at the back the 1:40 scale Pliosaurus model complete with Lampreys attached to its body.  The Xiongguanlong can be seen on its base in the centre of the photograph, close to the sandy coloured Moropus and the grey Nasutoceratops.  The Daeodon, prehistoric mammal figure is in the bottom right corner of the photograph.  It certainly is a very eclectic bunch of prehistoric animals.

Everything Dinosaur to Prepare More Fact Sheets

Four More Prehistoric Animal Fact Sheets to Write

As Everything Dinosaur prepares for the imminent arrival of the next set of 2015 prehistoric animal models from CollectA, team members have the task of writing fact sheets to accompany these new model introductions.  For every named prehistoric animal item that we sell, whether it is a soft toy, a jigsaw puzzle or a dinosaur themed pair of socks we always send out a fact sheet on the animals featured.  The next four fact sheets to be prepared feature the Pterosaur Guidraco (a member of the enigmatic Ornithocheiridae from China), the fearsome “War Pig” Daeodon, an Ichthyosaur – Temnodontosaurus and last but not least a Moropus.

The Moropus genus is represented by a number of species.  They are members of the Chalicothere group of extinct, hoofed mammals distantly related to horses, tapirs and rhinos.  Unlike most of their modern relatives, the Chalicotheres were slow moving animals.  Their large hands were twisted inwards at right angles and this meant that they walked on their knuckles, hence the popular name for the Chalicotheres – “knuckle walkers”.  However, the large body mass of Moropus suggests that this “knuckle walker” may not have walked on its knuckles like its relatives, this can be seen in the angle and orientation of the left arm in the drawing below.

An Illustration of Moropus Prepared for the Everything Dinosaur Fact Sheet

An illustration of Moropus.

With its sideburns and flowing mane this prehistoric mammal illustration reminds of a number of rock stars from the 1970’s.  We have nicknamed our Moropus prototype model “Noddy” after Noddy Holder, the lead singer of the very successful rock band Slade.

With four fact sheets on the new CollectA models to prepare, it has been pointed out to us that none of these four fact sheets are going to feature dinosaurs.  We are going to be a little bit out our comfort zone. However, we have some very useful reference sources, for example we have some excellent notes within our database on the original work by Othniel Charles Marsh, the American palaeontologist  who named this genus back in 1877.  The genus name means “Sloth or Slow Foot”), whatever the form of locomotion, Moropus was probably a very slow moving animal, one that relied on its sheer bulk and muscle to keep out of harm’s way.

To view the range of CollectA models currently available from Everything Dinosaur: CollectA Prehistoric Animal Models

These four new fact sheets will be ready by the end of the month so that they can be sent out with the first orders of the newly arrived CollectA replicas.

New for 2015 An Array of Prehistoric Animal Models from CollectA

In the picture above, the Moropus replica can be seen on the right and what a magnificent figure it is.  The large claws on the front feet can clearly be seen.  Scientists debate what the claws could have been used for, anatomical studies have revealed that the phalanges (finger bones) were quite flexible so the claws could be raised slightly and held off the ground as it walked.  The claws could have been used to dig up plant roots and tubers as well as acting as a deterrent to any would-be attacker, a “Bear Dog” (Amphicyonidae), for example.  After all, with 1,000 kilogrammes of muscle behind it, Moropus could pack quite a punch!

Win, Win, Win with Everything Dinosaur!

Win a 1:4 Scale CollectA Guidraco Pterosaur Model (Competition is now Closed)

WIN! WIN! WIN! with Everything Dinosaur!  Or should we change our name to Everything Pterosaur as we are giving away a brand new, super-duper 1:4 scale replica of the Pterosaur called Guidraco.

We have got another super, prehistoric animal giveaway.  CollectA have already brought out some amazing dinosaur models in 2015, all new additions to their excellent “Prehistoric Life” range that we at Everything Dinosaur are so proud to support.  To celebrate this and the fact Everything Dinosaur will officially be ten years old on August 1st we are holding a special competition, your chance to win a superb 1:4 scale replica of a flying reptile.  CollectA have extended their “Supreme” range of large scale models and the new for 2015 Guidraco with its moveable lower jaw is splendid and it makes a fitting prize in our special ten year anniversary competition.

Summer Term Draws to a Close

More Dinosaur Workshops Prior to the End of the Summer Term

There may be a little under three weeks or so to go before the end of the summer term, but Everything Dinosaur team members are still working hard preparing for the dinosaur workshops that they have planned between now and the end of the school year.  Team members will be travelling to Greater Manchester, Derbyshire, Lancashire and into Yorkshire as well as the West Midlands as they strive to complete their assignments.  The focus will be on exploring fossils and dinosaurs in a kinaesthetic way, with lots of tactile fossil handling experiments and other activities, all designed to meet the learning needs of the classes.

As with all our work in schools, we will be keen to support literacy and numeracy initiatives with lots of extension ideas and supplementary teaching materials that we can email over to teachers to help them with their schemes of work.

Dinosaurs Encouraging Children with Writing

Lots of examples of transcription and composition.

Already this week, Everything Dinosaur team members have supplied primary schools with resources to help measure different types of dinosaur (a novel use of toilet paper, even if we say so ourselves).  In addition, we have replied to the many thank you letters we have received.  These letters have been sent to our offices as part of an agreed extension activity with a number of schools whereby we help to encourage the children to practice punctuation and sentence construction.  It’s all part of a day’s work for our dedicated teachers and dinosaur experts.

With the end of the school year drawing near, the pressure is on when it comes to replying to the questions that we have had emailed into us.  All these need to be answered in super quick time to help the teaching teams complete their term topics.  Naturally, we strive to respond to all the questions we get sent as rapidly as possible, we know just how keenly anticipated our replies are.

To contact Everything Dinosaur to request further information about our dinosaur workshops in schools: Contact Everything Dinosaur

Over the summer, we hope to get out into the field to do some more work on fossil excavations as well as exploring a couple of new potential dig sites.  On top of all this, we have also got plans to add further free downloads to our “dinosaurs for schools” website.   Looks like it is going to be a very busy few weeks.
