Praising All Dinosaur Model Reviewers

At Everything Dinosaur, we get lots of emails and letters from fans of dinosaurs and prehistoric animal model collecting.  We do read them all and we respond to all those that require a reply.  Answering questions and commenting on all the amazing things that we get sent from our customers is something that we have always tried to do.  These days, the overwhelming majority of our correspondence is via email, the number of letters that we receive as a proportion of the total is dropping year on year.  However, we do get a great many thank you letters from school children who have taken part in our dinosaur and fossil themed workshops.  We are keen to encourage the children with their hand-writing and a thank you letter makes a great extension exercise for the teachers.

We also receive lots of links to videos that dinosaur model fans have made.  A wide variety of subjects are covered, from comments about model collections, suggestions for new replicas, unboxing videos, lists of favourite dinosaurs even homemade “Jurassic Park” movies.  We do our best to watch as many as we can, although, there never seems to be enough hours in the day, what with all our other commitments.  Around ten days ago, we were emailed by the father of a young dinosaur fan who contacted us to thank Everything Dinosaur for the speedy dispatch of some dinosaur models.  We were also informed, that, like many of our customers, his son posted up prehistoric animal themed videos.  The young man’s video channel contains reviews of his Everything Dinosaur purchases, collection updates, as well as video game footage.  The eager young video maker goes by the moniker “TheDinosaurMan 245”.

In Praise of All the Dinosaur Model Video Makers

We used to make some videos ourselves, these were our way of helping to pass on some of the background on new models as well as providing information about the prehistoric animals the models represented.  With so much going on in the company, we just don’t get the time to make them anymore, but those videos we have made, have had millions of views and we are grateful for every “like” and comment received.

Today, we pay tribute to all those collectors of dinosaurs and prehistoric animal models, who take the time and trouble to share their passion and enthusiasm for this hobby.

Our thanks to “TheDinosaurMan 245” and to everyone like him, who are fascinated with dinosaurs and enjoying telling the world about their collections.

FS3 – Dinosaur Roar

By | January 10th, 2017|Early Years Foundation Reception|Comments Off on FS3 – Dinosaur Roar

Reception Children at Leigh Primary School Study Dinosaurs

Children in classes FS2 and FS3 had an exciting afternoon learning all about different types of dinosaur.  The wet weather outside did not dampen their spirits as these children aged between four and five years old moved like dinosaurs and handled lots of fossils.  The budding young explorers learned about fossils and how they formed.  Real fossils feel as cold as a stone!

One of the teachers emailed on behalf of the children and the rest of the hard-working and dedicated teaching staff at the school, she said:

“Thank you for visiting Reception yesterday.  We had lots of fun learning about dinosaurs.  We think you are very clever and you know lots about dinosaurs.  Fletcher enjoyed learning about T. rex.  Miller enjoyed holding the fossil and showing his friends.  Heidi thought it was cool holding the dinosaur’s head.  We couldn’t believe that a dinosaur’s brain was so small.  Thank you for showing us the model of the dinosaur.  We loved being dinosaurs and showing our teeth and dinosaur fingers.  We liked roaring like a dinosaur and Mrs Thomas [class teacher] is going to put our photo on the school website.  I hope we don’t scare the mums and dads! “

Today, the enthusiastic children are going to get busy making dinosaur pictures, which sounds wonderful.  We hope to see some pictures of the children’s creations very soon.

So pleased to hear that the young children enjoyed the school dinosaur workshop, our dinosaur expert certainly enjoyed teaching about dinosaurs in school.
