Meet Lottie the Fossil Hunter

Lottie the Fossil Hunter Encouraging Girls into Science

Everything Dinosaur is delighted to support TrowelBlazers a team of dedicated science professionals and their supporters who are keen to celebrate the role of women in archaeology, palaeontology and geology.  We at Everything Dinosaur have been lucky enough to met and work with some amazing female scientists and it is great to see a child’s doll on the market that encourages girls to explore the wonderful world of rocks and fossils.  Meet “Lottie the fossil hunter”, a modern-day Mary Anning.

Lottie stands 18cm high and she is obviously equipped for some series fossil hunting with her sturdy rucksack, trowel, magnifying glass and geology hammer.  This poseable doll comes with some Ammonite fossils to find and we are sure that Lottie is going to have some amazing fossil collecting adventures.

Everything Dinosaur team members first came across Lottie several months ago, we have met some of the people behind her production and it is great to see a role model such as this for girls.

When we were puzzling over the name for this new doll, it was pointed out to us, very aptly by an eleven year old girl, that the name “Lottie” can be found in the word:

 PALAEONTOLOGIST.

Lottie the fossil hunter doll is recommended by Everything Dinosaur for its creative, imaginative play value and for the way it helps to challenge outmoded stereotypes when it comes to careers.

Team Members Try Their Best for Easter Delivery

Everything Dinosaur Prepares for the Bank Holiday (Easter)

With a Bank Holiday weekend fast approaching for those of us in the UK, it is worth remembering that most courier services and Royal Mail will not be working on Good Friday or Easter Monday.  What will be for most of the population, a four day weekend, will result in disruption to mail services and deliveries.  However, those hard working team members at Everything Dinosaur are doing all they can to try to ensure that UK customers at least, have every chance of receiving their parcels before the Easter break.

A spokesperson for the Cheshire based dinosaur company stated:

“Our packing team are working as hard as they can at the moment to get orders picked, packed and despatched as quickly as possible.  We appreciate that many customers have made purchases for the Bank Holiday and we are doing all we can to get parcels on their way as quickly as possible.”

No parcels will be despatched on Good Friday as Royal Mail and most couriers are not going to be working, so customers are urged to place any orders for Easter as quickly as possible to give their parcel the chance of arriving in time.

Everything Dinosaur aims to pick, pack and send out parcels on the same day as an order is placed.  Every customer receives a personalised email from a team member advising them of the status of the parcel and where it is in the despatching process.  Some parcels are turned round from the time the customer places the order to despatch within forty-five minutes, a schedule that few other mail order companies can match.

There will be no parcels sent out on Bank Holiday Monday.  Once again most couriers and Royal Mail are not operating a collection service on this day.  However, Everything Dinosaur has put in place a contingency plan, whereby they can despatch parcels on Saturday morning should the need arise.

The spokesperson went onto add:

“We do appreciate that a number of customers want orders to arrive in time for the weekend.  We have put extra resources in place to help manage the Bank Holiday work pressures, but we do urge all customers to place any orders as early as possible to give the delivery companies time to deliver.”

 With a commitment to customer service such as this, it is no wonder that Everything Dinosaur has become the “go to company” for dinosaur toys and dinosaur models.
