Everything Dinosaur Newsletter March 1st

E-news from Everything Dinosaur

The latest e-news was sent out by Everything Dinosaur to its customer database and subscriber lists yesterday.  Call them “updates”, “shouts”, “bulletins” or whatever, we intend to send out a newsletter to our fans, customers and subscribers ever fourteen days.  So much is going on inside the company these days, a more frequent mailing might be more appropriate, but for the time being we will limit our mail shots to one every two weeks.   After all, we always respond to customer requests, emails and letters, so we are always doing our best to keep everyone up to date with developments.

Our newsletters are being rolled out in response to increasing requests from customers and dinosaur fans in general to be kept informed regarding new models and other product developments at Everything Dinosaur.  The newsletter for March 1st featured information on the new for 2016 Safari Ltd dinosaur models, last minute support for grown-ups as they prepare for World Book Day, plus news of an exciting feathered dinosaur exhibition coming to the UK next year.

The newsletter also featured details about a super dinosaur notebook that has been added to our “back to school” range of products.  This is bound to get young dinosaur fans roaring with excitement.  It is great for school and it will, no doubt, encourage junior palaeontologists with their handwriting.  Details on the feathered dinosaur exhibition is provided along with news of prehistoric mammal model re-issues, (that Glyptodont, the Wild Safari Prehistoric World Doedicurus, for example).

Royal Mail Guidelines for Posting Gifts for Christmas

As we approach Halloween, and what with Bonfire Night just around the corner, it seems that a timely reminder might be helpful to all those Everything Dinosaur customers who want to purchase Christmas gifts including dinosaur toys and games.

Our packing teams work seven days a week at the moment, keeping on top of all the orders.  We try our very best to pack and despatch parcels as quickly as we can.  Each autumn/winter we publish tables produced by Royal Mail as to the recommended last safe posting dates for parcels going abroad and within the UK to ensure an arrival before Christmas.

For USA, Canada, H0ng Kong, Singapore and South Africa customers, the last recommended safe posting date for international surface mail passed on the 18th October.  Goods purchased after this date and requested to go by international surface mail are unlikely to reach their destinations in time for the big day.

How to Make your very own “Dinosaurs in a Net Set”

Inexpensive and Creative Christmas Gift Idea – Dinosaur Models in a Net

These days with Christmas rapidly approaching there never seems to be enough time available to personalise a present or to make something a little bit special for your young dinosaur fan.  To assist our customers, here is some information on how you can create an inexpensive and novel dinosaur themed gift, one that would make an ideal stocking filler for Christmas – a “Dinosaurs in a Net Set”,

Presentation sets and gift sets of dinosaurs and prehistoric animals are always popular with young dinosaur fans.  We at Everything Dinosaur sell a variety of such items, for example the “Dinosaurs in a Tin” gift set, twelve carefully selected plastic prehistoric animal models packed into their own dinosaur themed tin storage box.

However, for those of you who want to be a little more creative, here is an idea for your very own and unique dinosaur themed gift set – make your own “Dinosaurs in a Net Set”.

Simply, purchase a number of individual dinosaur models, there are lots and lots to choose from.  At Everything Dinosaur we sell a number of ranges, supplying models singly, or in batches of five, ten or even twenty.  Then next time you are out shopping pop into your local greengrocers (grocery store) and ask for a small plastic net.  Greengrocers break bulk items into handy, smaller packs for their customers.  They use small, plastic nets (usually coloured green), to pack items like onions, shallots, peppers and fruit such as satsumas.

If you are a regular shopper, most greengrocers would be happy to let you have some nets for free, or perhaps they may charge you a token amount.  However, this is very much cheaper than having to pay for the cardboard wrapping and packaging with a shop bought dinosaur model gift set.

Once home, give the net a quick wash, if you want to, let it dry and then when you are ready to assemble your unique gift set – simply pop your chosen models into the bag.

Put your Dinosaur Models into the Plastic Net

The picture above shows some of the many different types of prehistoric animal models available from Everything Dinosaur.

To view the dinosaurs and other models: Dinosaur Gifts & Presents

You will find the plastic net expands and you can get more than a dozen hand-sized prehistoric animal models into it.  Tie it up with a bit of spare ribbon, we found that red ribbon looked the best when used with a green plastic net.  Don’t forget the gift tag, this is easy to add, just by simply looping the ties through the plastic netting towards the neck of the bag.

Viola!  your very own, handmade and unique dinosaur model gift set.  Your very own “Dinosaurs in a Net Set”, a personalised gift for your young dinosaur fan.  All put together in a matter of minutes at a fraction of the cost of a shop bought gift set such as a plastic dinosaur play set.

This idea was sent into us at Everything Dinosaur, by a customer and we know that it has proved to be a big hit with those mums, dads and grandparents who have put together their very own dinosaur gift set for the young palaeontologist in their family.

To view the Dinosaur Bedding and Bedroom Accessories: Dinosaur Bedding and Dinosaur Bedroom Accessories

The beautifully illustrated dinosaurs are Apatosaurus – chosen because young palaeontologists will know that this dinosaur used to be called Brontosaurus (we explain how this happened in the fact sheet that comes with these items), also included is Herrerasaurus, a big meat-eating dinosaur that represents dinosaurs of the Triassic and an ancestor of all the big, carnivorous dinosaurs that were to come later.  The design also features Protoceratops, known as the “sheep of the Cretaceous”, after all, what do you do when you go to sleep, count sheep or count dinosaurs!  We just had to have this all important and perhaps the most extensively researched dinosaur in our design.  Finally there is Troodon, perhaps the smartest dinosaur known in the fossil record, reflecting that clever young dinosaur fans will be able to spot this dinosaur and know exactly what it stands for and why it is important.

The fact sheets supplied with these items will help explain things for those adults who may not be as perceptive as the young palaeontologists in their family.

T. rex Gift Card and Tyrannosaurus Tooth Combined

Tyrannosaurus rex Gift Card and Tooth – A Winning Present Combination

Looking to solve your gift problem when it comes to purchasing for a dinosaur mad youngster, then let Everything Dinosaur take the worry out of making a selection with this new addition to our already extensive dinosaur themed product range which incorporates our huge stock of dinosaur party supplies.

Why not purchase a Tyrannosaurus rex gift card in combination with a museum quality replica of a T. rex tooth?  This simple idea of putting together a dinosaur themed gift card with a dinosaur themed present makes the problem of purchasing an inexpensive present for a dinosaur obsessed youngster extinct.

The T. rex Tooth and Gift Card Combo from Everything Dinosaur

The dinosaur greeting card, designed by those clever people at Santoro, features a 3-D Tyrannosaurus rex.  It is a swing card, the T. rex is made up of movable parts so he comes out of the card wiggling his head and tail at you.  The background illustration of a primeval, dinosaur filled jungle is really cool and there is plenty of space for you to write a personal message.  The card itself has a blank message space so it can be used for all kinds of occasions – birthdays, general greetings, get well soon, even Christmas.   The card comes supplied with its own properly sized envelope, finding a gift card for a young dinosaur fan could not be easier with this unusual and novel dinosaur inspired offering.

The tooth is a museum quality replica cast from a real fossil tooth of a Tyrannosaurus rex T. rex had over sixty teeth in its powerful jaws and it had one of the strongest bites of any animal known to science.  This beautifully sculpted replica is a tooth from the right side of the lower jaw of the first ever Tyrannosaurus rex skeleton discovered.  This tooth is part of the T. rex collection housed at the Natural History Museum in London (specimen number BMNH R799).  It is not the largest tooth in the museum’s T. rex collection but the fine detail preserved and its beautiful shape made it the ideal tooth to cast a replica from.

Those keen dinosaur enthusiasts at Everything Dinosaur even provide a fact sheet all about Tyrannosaurus rex, the ideal accompaniment to the greetings card and the replica tooth.  You can read all about the discovery of T. rex, why the arms are so small and learn facts about the “Tyrant Lizard King”.  A scale drawing is included to give an idea of just how big some of these dinosaurs were.

Providing an inexpensive and unique dinosaur themed gift could not be simpler, what a great way to make a young palaeontologist feel special, or to help with the dinosaur party items, their own personalised T. rex greetings card and a replica tooth cast from a real museum quality Tyrannosaurus rex tooth – give the gift of prehistory, we bet you will see a bigger grin than the toothy smile of a T. rex.

Sea Monsters – Magnetic Play Set

Sea Monsters – Magnetic Play Set

Building on Everything Dinosaur’s work with a number of marine reptile and other creatures that lived in the ancient seas of the Mesozoic, the company has introduced a sea monster magnetic play set.

Now young dinosaur fans can create their own underwater scenes featuring such amazing and wonderful animals as Dolichorhynchops, Elasmosaurus and Tylosaurus.  These play sets don’t just focus on marine reptiles, the magnetic play sets include giant sharks, primitive fish and the torpedo shaped Xiphactinus.

The Magnetic Play Set from Everything Dinosaur

To view the Sea Monsters play set and other items on the Everything Dinosaur website: Sea Monsters Gifts and Toys

On test this particular product proved very popular.  The set consists of two prehistoric scenes and a set of magnetic play pieces representing animals from the Age of Reptiles, from the Triassic right up to the end of the Cretaceous.  In the set, giant sharks such as Squalicorax, squid and the fearsome Xiphactinus fish are featured.  Naturally, the marine reptiles have the largest presence with Nothosaurs, Mosasaurs, Elasmosaurs and even Ichthyosaurs included.  The pieces are easy to move and place on the realistic underwater scenes and we found that lots and lots of different stories could be made up about the animals.

This proved an excellent item for creative play and linked into some key stage teaching areas such as building ecosystems and understanding food webs.  We certainly saw a huge number of different scenes, each one depicting a child’s view of an ancient seascape populated by fearsome sea monsters.
