New Papo and Prehistoric Animal Model Retirements

By | September 19th, 2017|Dinosaur Fans, Everything Dinosaur News and Updates, Everything Dinosaur Products, Main Page, Photos of Everything Dinosaur Products|1 Comment

Papo New Releases and Retirements (Les Dinosaures)

Just arrived at Everything Dinosaur, a limited edition Papo gift box dinosaur model set.  The Papo special edition gift box features two dinosaurs, a Papo juvenile Spinosaurus and a Papo Ceratosaurus.  The Papo Juvenile Spinosaurus is a new figure, Everything Dinosaur team members saw this model around twelve months ago, it is not known whether this super Spinosaurus will be available as an individual model in 2018.

Papo Juvenile Spinosaurus

The Papo juvenile Spinosaurus measures eighteen centimetres in length and like the similarly sized Ceratosaurus, it has an articulated lower jaw.  The skull and body proportions have been skilfully modelled by the Papo design team and this figure does look like a young animal.  The sail on the back is not quite as pronounced as it is in the Papo adult Spinosaurus replica and the paint scheme on the juvenile Spinosaurus is exquisite.  This pair of models are offered for sale in a special presentation gift box, or as the French would say “offre speciale”.

Papo Prehistoric Animal Model Retirements

There are going to be several models retired from the Papo “Les Dinosaures” range in 2018.  The Papo Pachyrhinosaurus figure, the Papo Baby Woolly Mammoth model and the baby brown T. rex are out of production and no more of these figures will be made, according to sources close to Everything Dinosaur.

The Papo baby Woolly Mammoth and the baby brown Tyrannosaurus rex figures were introduced into the model range in 2012.  Originally, there were two baby T. rex figures, however, the green variant was retired some years ago.  As for the Papo juvenile Woolly Mammoth, as far as Everything Dinosaur team members are aware, this model will continue to be made next year.  It is the Papo baby Woolly Mammoth that is becoming extinct.

It is also sad to see the retirement of the Papo Pachyrhinosaurus figure.  This horned dinosaur model has proved to be very popular amongst Papo collectors.  The Papo Pachyrhinosaurus was introduced in 2010, within the Papo range there are still two Ceratopsians, naturally there is a Triceratops (adult and young), plus a brightly coloured Styracosaurus.

All three of the retired models are still available from Everything Dinosaur, whilst stocks last.  The Papo prehistoric animal range can be viewed here: Papo Prehistoric Animals

A spokesperson from Everything Dinosaur commented:

“We are delighted to see this special edition box set and the juvenile Spinosaurus is a very welcome addition to the Papo model portfolio.  We don’t know whether this model will be available as an individual piece but we have lobbied the senior management of Papo about this, however, no decision as to its future has been made.  Providing information on model retirements allows collectors and dinosaur fans to snap up any models before they become rare and start to sell on auction sites for silly prices.  There are some exciting new models from Papo coming next year and when we have permission to talk about them and show pictures we will post them up.”

Everything Dinosaur Adds PNSO Family Zoo

By | September 14th, 2017|Animal News Stories, Everything Dinosaur News and Updates, Main Page, Press Releases|0 Comments

PNSO Family Zoo Models Added to Everything Dinosaur’s Range

Everything Dinosaur has added the PNSO Family Zoo range of animal models to its product portfolio.  The Family Zoo range currently consists of twenty animal models, representing extant creatures as diverse as tigers, pandas, hippos, horses and dogs. Each model is hand-painted and presented in its own blister packaging.  PNSO has built up a deserved reputation for the excellence of its prehistoric animal models, the “PNSO Age of Dinosaurs Toys”, now collectors have the chance to add the entire Family Zoo range to their collections.

Family Zoo Ten Most Popular Asian Animals

The ten animals in the Family Zoo Asian models range are: Brown Bear, Horse, Tiger, Goat, Wolf, Dog, Pig, Siamese Crocodile, Cow and a Panda.  This might seem like an eclectic mix of animals, however, the Family Zoo Asian models represent creatures that have had an intimate relationship with our own species.  Many animals have become domesticated whilst others have been revered in different Asian cultures, the choice of animal in this range reflects the impact that these animals have had and celebrates their importance and their significance to our own species.  The Family Zoo Ten Most Popular Asian Animals commemorates these creatures and their fascinating stories which are interwoven with our own history.

Family Zoo Ten Most Popular African Animals

The animals that make up the PNSO Family Zoo ten most popular African animals in contrast, represent creatures that although very important to various human cultures, have never been successfully domesticated.  This model range (all mammals), consists of Wildebeest, African Buffalo, African Lion, Spotted Hyena, Cheetah, African Elephant, Giraffe, Zebra, Hippopotamus and a Black Rhinoceros.

Each skilfully, hand-painted animal figure represents an iconic wild animal from Africa.  In the PNSO product literature, this range is described as:

“There are many free spirits roaming the vast Savannah of Africa.  We have produced the Family Zoo range to express our love for nature.”

All the replicas in the “Asian” and “African” ranges show wonderful anatomical details and the colouration of the models is fantastic.  It is hard to choose a favourite, but the Black Rhinoceros (Diceros bicornis), is amongst our favourites, it is great to see a model of this critically endangered large mammal.

The PNSO Family Zoo Black Rhinoceros measures a fraction under eleven centimetres in length and this splendid figure is a marvellous companion to the large PNSO White Rhinoceros replica, one of three large-scale figures of iconic African mammals produced by PNSO.

A spokesperson from Everything Dinosaur commented:

“These figures are rare and difficult to obtain, so we are delighted to be able to offer the PNSO Family Zoo to collectors and animal model fans.”

PNSO Pictures Pushes Pinterest Beyond 14,000

By | September 4th, 2017|Dinosaur Fans, Educational Activities, Everything Dinosaur News and Updates, Main Page, Press Releases, Teaching|1 Comment

Everything Dinosaur Has 14,000 Pins on Pinterest

With the setting up of a special Pinterest board dedicated to the excellent Age of Dinosaurs range from PNSO, Everything Dinosaur has smashed through the 14,000 pins benchmark on this social media platform.  Everything Dinosaur’s presence on Pinterest is dedicated to pictures of prehistoric animals and fossils as well as images of all the amazing dinosaur themed products in the company’s extensive portfolio.  With the introduction of the PNSO Age of Dinosaurs range in August (August 2017), a new Pinterest board was created to accommodate images of this model series and this, along with the addition of several new blog articles, pushed the total number of pins on the site beyond 14,000.

A Total of 37 Images on the PNSO Pinterest Board Posted Up by Everything Dinosaur

Sixty Pinterest Boards

The Pinterest pins are spread out over a total of sixty Pinterest Boards, covering subjects as diverse as human evolution, crocodiles/crocodilians and Pterosaurs.  The board entitled “Fossils”, which incorporates more than fifteen hundred pictures of various fossils from museum collections and excavation sites, rivals the fossil collection of a small regional museum in its diversity.  The board entitled “Dinosaurs for Schools” in conjunction with the board that highlights the articles posted up on our special teaching blog: Dinosaurs for Schools has a total of 874 pins posted.  These provide a valuable educational resource for teachers and teaching assistants.  There is even a board that provides images of fearsome “Terror Birds”, otherwise known as members of the Phorusrhacidae family, a group of large, flightless, carnivorous birds that were the apex predators in South America until the migration of members of the Carnivora into South America just a few million years ago.

The image above depicting a Terror Bird is typical of the many prehistoric animal drawings that get sent into our offices.   Everything Dinosaur team members also post up pictures of the numerous dinosaur drawings we receive each week, so far, the Pinterest Board named “Dinosaur Drawings etc” has nearly 850 pins on it.

A spokesperson for the UK-based dinosaur company stated:

“There are many stunning visuals associated with palaeontology.  Not only are there the amazing fossils to photograph and document, but many scientific papers these days are accompanied by life reconstructions of the animals the fossils represent.  It is great to be able to utilise a platform such as Pinterest where we can post up these images, not only illustrations from professional palaeoartists but also from schoolchildren as well.”

Countdown to the Frankfurter Buchmesse

By | September 2nd, 2017|Educational Activities, Everything Dinosaur News and Updates, Main Page, Press Releases|0 Comments

Frankfurt Book Fair Countdown Begins

Next month sees the annual Frankfurter Buchmesse, the biggest trade fair anywhere in the world for the international publishing industry and this year’s event is likely to be bigger and better than ever.  Over 7,150 exhibitors have registered, from 106 countries and this trade fair attracted over 278,000 visitors in 2016.  It was an extremely busy few days, we know, because Everything Dinosaur team members were there.  With so many new Earth science titles being published and with our interest in helping teachers and teaching assistants in the UK, attending this trade fair forms an essential part of our support for our schools’ programme.

Frankfurt – A Long Association with Books and Book Fairs

The city of Frankfurt in central Germany has had a long association with books and the publishing world.  After all, this ancient city on the River Main, was the birthplace of the famous German writer Johann Wolfgang von Goethe.  Book fairs in this part of Germany have a tradition spanning more than five centuries, the first book fair in the region being held not long after the development of printing using block letters.  The Frankfurter Buchmesse has become a focal point for the marketing of new works and titles.  Over the years, with the development of other media, this internationally renowned event has extended to showcase developments in culture, the arts and broadcast media as well as the publishing world.  Last year, Everything Dinosaur team members were amongst some 2,000 specially selected and accredited bloggers invited to attend.  We have already started packing and relocated our German phrase book so that we can make the most of our visit.

Tens of Thousands of Visitors at the Frankfurter Buchmesse

The book fair starts on Wednesday 11th October and runs through to Sunday 15th, but please note, the first few days are dedicated to trade visitors only.

Dinosaurs to See

Everything Dinosaur team members will be looking out for new educational publications on the Dinosauria, in addition, they will be keeping an eye out for new teaching publications that can assist with the numerous lesson plans and schemes of work we prepare for teaching teams, whether it is the national curriculum, cornerstones or another type of curriculum the school is following.  We might just get chance to visit one of our favourite landmarks in the city – the life-size model of a Tyrannosaurus rex that stands opposite the entrance to the Naturmuseum Senckenberg in Frankfurt (the natural history museum).

Everything Dinosaur Gets Exclusive Access to New Steppe Mammoth Model

By | August 21st, 2017|Dinosaur Fans, Educational Activities, Everything Dinosaur News and Updates, Everything Dinosaur Products, Main Page, Press Releases|0 Comments

Everything Dinosaur will be Stocking Eofauna Steppe Mammoth Model

Everything Dinosaur will be stocking the new Eofauna Scientific Research 1:40 scale replica of a Steppe Mammoth (M. trogontherii).  The UK-based specialist supplier of dinosaur and prehistoric animal models has been granted exclusive access to this new figure for on-line sales for a British Isles-based company.  The beautifully sculpted PVC figure measures nineteen centimetres in length and shows some amazing detail.  Team members are currently working on the data sheet that will accompany sales of this model through Everything Dinosaur’s website.  As Eofauna Scientific Research is staffed by vertebrate fossil specialists and researchers too, this fantastic mammoth model will also be supplied with a hang tag and bonus collectable card to educate collectors about this geographically widespread, Middle Pleistocene proboscidean!

A spokesperson from Everything Dinosaur commented:

“Working with the dedicated team at Eofauna Scientific Research has been a great experience.  They have done an amazing job producing what will be a highly sought after and collectable mammoth model.  It is an honour to be involved in the launch of this new, PVC model series and we can’t wait to see how this range of replicas develops.”

Mammuthus trogontherii – The Steppe Mammoth

The Steppe Mammoth (Mammuthus trogontherii) was one of the largest of all the proboscideans, with some fossil specimens indicating a bodyweight in excess of ten tonnes.  This mammoth was an evolutionary intermediary between the ancestral mammoth M. meridionalis and the better-known Woolly Mammoth (M. primigenius).  It evolved around 1,600,000 years ago and roamed much of the northern latitudes of Europe and Asia.  The elephant’s skull was shorter than those of its ancestors, this is skilfully depicted in the anatomically accurate 1:40 scale Eofauna replica and the teeth of Mammuthus trogontherii were adapted to feeding on tough grasses and sedges – check out the superbly painted upper molars that are visible in the open mouth of the model!

Coming Soon to Everything Dinosaur!

The First of a New Range of Prehistoric Animal Models

This is the first of an exciting range of PVC models, the range is being introduced with the aim of giving fans of prehistoric animals and model collectors the opportunity to build up a collection of highly accurate, museum quality figures.

General Director of Eofauna Scientific Research, Asier Larramendi explained:

“All our work is based on scientific research.  Several members of Eofauna, including myself, are scientists and our aim is to use our considerable knowledge and expertise to develop an exciting range of figures that really do reflect the fossil record.  It is fantastic for us to be teaming up with such a well-respected company such as Everything Dinosaur, who like us, share a passion for palaeontology and helping to educate the next generation of scientists.”

If the 1:40 scale Steppe Mammoth is anything to go by, then collectors and prehistoric animal fans are going to be roaring with excitement as this new range is rolled out.  Just wait until you see the dinosaurs….

A spokesperson from Everything Dinosaur commented:

“The PNSO product range aims to inform and to educate and contains a huge variety of prehistoric animal models, both big and small.  It is wonderful to see replicas of some of the amazing dinosaurs from China incorporated into this product range and it’s not just dinosaurs too, there are Ichthyosaur models such as Himalayasaurus to collect and even a Confuciusornis!”

A Cretaceous Bird Named after a Chinese Philosopher

Many Confuciusornis fossils have been found in the Liaoning Province (north-eastern China) and fossils of these early birds (they belong to a group called the Enantiornithines), have helped palaeontologists to work out how Maniraptoran feathered dinosaurs evolved into birds.  We are sure that the great Chinese philosopher and teacher Confucius would have approved of these prehistoric animal replicas, helping to inform and educate about China’s remarkable fossil record.  Male birds were slightly different from the females, just like many extant species of birds today.  The males had a pair of long tail feathers, the females lacked these adornments.  The PNSO Dinosaurs of China Confuciusornis model is therefore a male bird.  The long tail feathers played no role in powered flight, they probably were used in visual displays as the males attempted to attract a mate.

Marine Monsters and Museum Quality Dinosaur Replicas

As well as family favourites such as Triceratops and Tyrannosaurus rex, the larger models include spectacular models of sea monsters.  There is a serpentine Basilosaurus replica, that at around half a metre in length, makes a brilliant centrepiece to any model collection.  We must also mention the fantastic Megalodon (C. megalodon) replica, the detail on this giant shark figure is stunning.

The stunning Rebor 1:18 scale Velociraptor models are sold as a pair and they are also available separately.  Each model has an articulated lower jaw and the arms can be placed in various positions.  The dinosaurs measure around twenty centimetres in length and when put on the larger of the two metal rods that come with these figures, the model stands some twenty-five centimetres in the air.

The Everything Dinosaur customer newsletter also permits us to update subscribers when new stocks of existing models arrive as well as letting people know about new products.  The early August newsletter confirmed that fresh supplies of the popular Rebor “Crimson King” – Carnotaurus sastrei had arrived.  The company’s initial stock having sold out very quickly, however, with a new batch of abelisaurs safely put into the warehouse, fans of Rebor could acquire this Theropod replica.  In addition, this newsletter allowed us to highlight a new range of dinosaur themed gift and greetings cards that had just arrived in stock.

These dinosaur cards are going to make every dinosaur mad child’s birthday or special occasion even more special, a spokesperson from Everything Dinosaur commented:

“We like the design of these dinosaur greetings cards, they are very colourful and the pop-up dinosaur inside is very well crafted.  We particularly like the little extra details, such as the Pterosaurs flying over the Stegosaurus and the skeleton that is on the inside of the T. rex greetings card.”

These distinctive dinosaur themed greetings cards are even supplied with their own envelope so sending birthday wishes or marking some other event in the lives of young palaeontologists is made even easier.  Everything Dinosaur receives hundreds of letters, emails, dinosaur drawings and pictures of dinosaur models, more dinosaur themed cards have been requested and we are happy to help out.  We know that dinosaur fans will be roaring with excitement when they receive a special prehistoric animal themed greetings card, such as these dinosaur pop-up cards.  Trouble is, we can’t make up our minds as to which is our favourite!
