Best Prehistoric Animal Toy Figure – Iguanodon
Congratulations to Safari Ltd as their recently introduced Wild Safari Prehistoric World Iguanodon dinosaur model has been voted the best prehistoric animal toy figure to be released in 2016. Readers of “Prehistoric Times” magazine were asked to list their favourite dinosaur and prehistoric animal models out of all those that had been launched in 2016. The competition was tough, but the Wild Safari Prehistoric World Iguanodon figure came top in the survey.

Safari Ltd figures have won this accolade before. The model of the armoured dinosaur called Sauropelta, coincidentally, from the same replica range as the Iguanodon figure, triumphed in 2015. This year it was a model of yet another plant-eating dinosaur that was voted number one by readers of “Prehistoric Times” magazine.
Iguanodon – A Very Popular Dinosaur
As most young dinosaur fans will gladly tell you, Iguanodon was only the second kind of dinosaur to be formally, scientifically described. The genus was erected in 1825. Together with the carnivorous dinosaur Megalosaurus and the armoured dinosaur Hylaeosaurus, it was one of three genera that together were grouped into the Dinosauria by Sir Richard Owen.
Well done to all the team at Safari Ltd. A special acknowledgement of the efforts of the design team who worked very hard to develop an accurate interpretation of this Ornithischian dinosaur (bird-hipped member of the Dinosauria).
An appropriate gesture would be to give everyone at Safari Ltd a “big Iguanodon thumbs up”. Congratulations!
