Everything Dinosaur – Still Operating Amid Coronavirus Outbreak

Everything Dinosaur – Far from Extinct

Dear Customers and Friends of Everything Dinosaur,

We are living in unprecedented times.  The COVID-19 (Coronavirus) pandemic has global implications, we would once again, like to convey our thoughts and sympathies to all those people who have been affected by this virus.

Everything Dinosaur would like to extend our well wishes to each and every one of our customers and friends.  We want to pass on our thoughts and sympathies to all those people who have been affected by this outbreak.  This is a very difficult time for all of us.  We would like to briefly update you on the current situation at Everything Dinosaur.

We are far from extinct!  Whilst we are constantly reviewing advice received from the UK Government, the Chamber of Commerce and our Dept of Trade and Industry account manager, for the time being at least, our mail order business is operating as normal.

Business as Usual for Everything Dinosaur

Everything Dinosaur has put in place a number of measures that means the company can operate the mail order business.

Customers Can Still Place Orders!

Everything Dinosaur is still operating!  The plans we put in place weeks ago have put us in a reasonable position when it comes to our mail order business.  Whilst we will always heed the advice of the Government and the Chamber of Commerce, we are still able to operate our mail order business.  Customers can still place orders; we are still despatching and our customers are receiving their parcels.

We don’t have a crystal ball, but because we have lots of contacts in China and elsewhere in the world, team members at Everything Dinosaur quickly became aware of the potential implications if the disease spread outside of Hubei Province (China).  We started to put plans in place back in January (2020), a rolling set of measures to support our staff, our customers, our suppliers and our local community.

Preparations and Plans

The United Kingdom and much of the world, may now be in lockdown.  Everything Dinosaur began its preparations on a “just in case scenario” ten weeks ago.

These preparations included:

  • Cutting back on the amount of teaching work undertaken to permit more management time dedicated towards the mail order business.
  • Using stocks (purchased 2018 for outreach science programmes) of alcohol based hand sanitisers (some of which have already been donated to vulnerable members of the local community).
  • Deliberately building up stock of dinosaur models, figures and other items and ensuring that these could be packed and despatched from homes if needed.
  • Building up quantities of packaging supplies to help support the mail order operations.
  • Implementing stringent cleanliness regimes and social distancing.
  • Taking all essential steps to ensure the safety and protection of all Everything Dinosaur team members.
  • Switching shipment delivery addresses to permit stock to remain accessible to Everything Dinosaur team members.
  • Liaising closely with factories in order to put in place contingency plans to ensure continuity of stock.
  • Suspension of all but essential travel, suspension of all face-to-face meetings.
  • Postponement of outreach science programmes and dinosaur themed workshops.

In the last three weeks we have received a total of eighteen FEEFO reviews all of them rated Everything Dinosaur as a 5-star service provider.

We are still continuing to maintain the very highest levels of customer service.

Helping Out at Home

Lots of our customers have been in touch, with many of our customers having to stay at home, they have been looking for products and projects to help get them through these uncertain times.  We are should not overlook the mental health of those persons advised to self-isolate.  A hobby like dinosaur model collecting, model making, replica painting, building dioramas and so forth can play a significant part in helping with well-being.  We are also aware of the large numbers of children currently at home.

Everything Dinosaur and Fossil Workshops Postponed

By | March 21st, 2020|Everything Dinosaur News and Updates, Main Page, Press Releases|0 Comments

Everything Dinosaur and Fossil Workshops Postponed

The planned dinosaur and fossil themed workshops that were scheduled to take place this weekend (Saturday, 21st March, 2020) have been postponed due to the coronavirus outbreak.  These events had proved to be extremely popular but with the growing concern over coronavirus, staff at Rochdale Borough Council responsible for the “Dippy the Dinosaur” exhibition, have reluctantly decided to postpone these workshops along with all the other related exhibition events and activities.

Everything Dinosaur Was Conducting a Series of Family Themed Workshops and Other Activities

Everything Dinosaur workshops cancelled for March 21st (2020).

Everything Dinosaur’s dinosaur and fossil themed workshops planned for the “Dippy on Tour” exhibition have been postponed due to the coronavirus outbreak.

Picture Credit: Everything Dinosaur

A statement posted on the Borough Council’s “The Dippy Experience” website explains the reasoning behind the suspension of planned events related to the dinosaur exhibition:

“In light of the current situation we’ve taken the difficult decision to suspend Dippy in Rochdale.  The health and safety of our residents and visitors must come first and now is the time to take a pause.  We will review the possibility of reopening Dippy on Tour in Rochdale in the upcoming months.”

A spokesperson from Everything Dinosaur commented:

“Families are at the centre of everything we do and this is particularly important during these challenging times.  We have been monitoring the situation very closely and we fully understand and support the decision taken.  The hands-on nature of our fossil handling activities would make operating the workshops extremely difficult given the current restrictions.  However, we have moth-balled all the various activities that we had planned and prepared, these will be stored at one of our warehouses, so that before “Dippy” leaves the northwest of England, we could deliver the workshops we promised.”

A Chance to Reschedule the Dinosaur and Fossil Workshops

A spokesperson from Rochdale Borough Council thanked the team members at Everything Dinosaur for their efforts so far and stated that the Council would love to welcome Everything Dinosaur back, rescheduling later on in the year.

We shall see how things go, but dates in our busy diaries can be switched around and changed over to accommodate the eager young palaeontologists of the northwest of England.

Every Day Everything Dinosaur Will Give Away a Lucky Charm

By | March 18th, 2020|Adobe CS5, Dinosaur Fans, Everything Dinosaur News and Updates, Everything Dinosaur Products, Main Page, Press Releases|0 Comments

Golden Rat Lucky Charm Giveaway with Everything Dinosaur

Things might be a little difficult right now due to the coronavirus outbreak, but team members at Everything Dinosaur are determined to keep cheerful and are trying to spread a little joy and happiness in these challenging times.  Take for example, an initiative started this week to include a Mojo Fun golden rat lucky charm as a free gift to one Everything Dinosaur customer each day.

Everything Dinosaur Giving Away Mojo Fun Golden Rat Lucky Charms

In the Chinese lunar calendar, the year 2020 is the year of rat.  The rat in the Chinese zodiac is seen as a sign of surplus, good prospects and wealth.  The rat is strongly linked to the family in Chinese culture (a consequence of this rodent’s ability to breed rapidly), rats are seen as successful, adaptable but happy to lead a quiet, peaceful existence.

Each year for the past few years, Mojo Fun has produced a special, limited edition replica of the animal represented by the new Chinese year.  These figures are highly prized and difficult to obtain, but at Everything Dinosaur, we have decided to include one of these beautiful models in a parcel every day until our stock runs out.

A spokesperson from Everything Dinosaur commented:

“We had intended to give away these stunning little models once the new for 2020 Mojo Fun prehistoric animal models arrived, but due to the coronavirus outbreak, these models, like a lot of other items have been delayed.  So, we thought we would cheer everybody up by sending one of these special figures out to a customer every day for as long as our stocks last.  For us, it’s all about spreading a little happiness and joy at this difficult time.”

Take a Photograph – Share the Smile!

In addition, we are asking all those customers who receive a golden rat, to take a picture of their lucky charm next to their purchases from Everything Dinosaur.  If they email the picture to us, we will then post it up onto our social media pages so that we can share the joy a little.

As a valued customer, we hope this gift brings a little happiness and we have asked recipients to take a picture of their gift alongside the prehistoric animals purchased from Everything Dinosaur.  If the photograph is then emailed to us, we will post the picture up onto our social media pages so that everyone can share in the fun.

CollectA Deluxe Fukuisaurus 1:40 Scale (Turntable Tuesday)

By | March 17th, 2020|Adobe CS5, Dinosaur Fans, Everything Dinosaur News and Updates, Everything Dinosaur Products, Everything Dinosaur videos, Main Page, Photos of Everything Dinosaur Products|0 Comments

CollectA Deluxe Fukuisaurus 1:40 Scale (Turntable Tuesday)

As Everything Dinosaur team members get better acquainted with the video management software and other technical aspects of the company’s small studio, we have opted to try and produce at least one dinosaur or prehistoric animal themed YouTube video a week.  With the arrival of a small turntable, we decided to start showcasing various dinosaur figures by producing short (around one or two minutes long), videos.  In this brief YouTube video, we highlight the new for 2020 CollectA Deluxe 1:40 scale Fukuisaurus dinosaur model.

Turntable Tuesday – The CollectA Deluxe 1:40 Scale Fukuisaurus Dinosaur Model Takes a Spin

Fukuisaurus – A Japanese Dinosaur

The CollectA Fukuisaurus model follows hot on the heels of the CollectA Fukuiraptor figure that was introduced in 2019.  Both dinosaurs are associated with the famous Kitadani Formation of Fukui on the Japanese island of Honshu.  The ornithopod Fukuisaurus (which was named and described in 2003) and the theropod Fukuiraptor, which was formally scientifically described three years earlier, come from the same bonebed in the Kitadani Dinosaur Quarry (Bonebed I).  It has been speculated that Fukuiraptor preyed upon Fukuisaurus, but there is very little scientific evidence other than the proximity of the fossil material to support this supposition.

Two Models of Dinosaurs from the Lower Cretaceous of Japan

CollectA Fukuisaurus and CollectA Fukuiraptor

Towards the end of this short video (it lasts a fraction over two minutes long), the CollectA Deluxe Fukuisaurus and the CollectA Fukuiraptor are shown together.  This permits dinosaur model fans and collectors to get a really good look at both figures.  Although the Fukuisaurus is part of the CollectA Deluxe range and it is in approximately 1:40 scale, as Fukuisaurus was a relatively small member of the hadrosaurid lineage, the actual dinosaur model is quite small.  Everything Dinosaur team members have measured the replica and it is approximately 14 cm long and stands around 5.5 cm high at the hips.

It is beautifully detailed and there is much to be admired in this CollectA figure (yes, we do point out in the video that this dinosaur model does have a cloaca).

A spokesperson for Everything Dinosaur commented:

“A lot of dinosaur model fans and collectors have asked us to make more videos about prehistoric animals, we are working hard to get up to speed and we do intend to produce another forty or so videos this year, including reviews of some of the new for 2020 CollectA models.”

When will the CollectA Fukuisaurus be in Stock?

The first batch of the new for 2020 CollectA prehistoric animal models including the Fukuisaurus have been delayed (coronavirus).  As soon as Everything Dinosaur have news about these models, then it will be posted up onto this blog and onto the company’s social media pages.

March Model Madness

Everything Dinosaur Newsletter – March Model Madness

It is March model madness, with a new edition to the Everything Dinosaur model range plus the return of some old favourites.  Newsletter subscribers will have received this week our latest missive and it provides details of the new Wild Past Protoceratops, plus Rebor replicas and a “heads up” that the mighty 1:20 scale CollectA Deluxe Elasmotherium is back in stock!

The brand Wild Past has only recently been launched, but the first of the models in this exciting range is already in stock at Everything Dinosaur, but be warned, the 1:35 scale Protoceratops andrewsi complete with a nest of dinosaur eggs has had a very limited production run, so stock of this particular member of the Protoceratopsidae is likely to sell out fast.

Headlining the Everything Dinosaur Newsletter – The Wild Past Protoceratops Model

The Return of Rebor Replicas

Good news for fans of Rebor replicas.  Although the extended Chinese New Year led to disruption in international delivery networks, Everything Dinosaur had been able to arrange the shipment of the popular Rebor “Raptor” replica called “Sweeney” and the 1:6 scale Compsognathus model “Sentry”.  Newsletter readers were the first to receive an update letting them know that both these Rebor figures were once again available.

Fascinating Foetus and a Charging 1:20 scale Elasmotherium

In addition, the Rebor Oddities Velociraptor foetus wet specimen with light up base is also available.  This fascinating model of an embryonic dinosaur was first introduced in the late summer of last year.  Standing around 22 centimetres high, the figure makes a striking centrepiece to any prehistoric animal model collection.  Joining the Velociraptor is the CollectA Deluxe 1:20 scale Elasmotherium, this replica too is also now available.

Mojo Fun New for 2020 Prehistoric Animal Models Delayed

By | March 5th, 2020|Adobe CS5, Dinosaur Fans, Everything Dinosaur News and Updates, Everything Dinosaur Products, Main Page, Photos of Everything Dinosaur Products, Press Releases|0 Comments

New for 2020 Mojo Fun Prehistoric Animal Models Delayed Until at Least June 2020

The impact of the COVID-19 (coronavirus) and the disruption to the Chinese economy is beginning to affect production plans and proposed delivery schedules for new for 2020 prehistoric animal models.  In Everything Dinosaur’s statement released earlier this week, we explained that this virus outbreak has global implications that will affect producers, retailers and importers across a vast spectrum of goods, not only goods sourced from Asia.  Our statement also conveyed our thoughts and sympathies to all those people affected by COVID-19.  Our full statement of earlier this week can be found here: Everything Dinosaur COVID-19 Information.

As part of our own plans to help mitigate the impact of the virus, we have been working closely with our distribution chain partners and we can now confirm that the eagerly awaited new for 2020 Mojo Fun prehistoric animal models are likely to be delayed until at least June 2020.  Further delays cannot be ruled out at this stage.

Mojo Fun Prehistoric Animal Models

There are plans to introduce more than ten new dinosaur models along with colour variants of existing models.  However, the outbreak of COVID-19 has curtailed the original plans to have these figures available in March 2020.  The latest information received by Everything Dinosaur suggests that the new for 2020 prehistoric animals are likely to be delayed until at least June 2020.  The new Tyrannosaurus rex Deluxe model with an articulated jaw (seen on the right of the picture above), is one of the new figures affected.

“Bully” for Mojo Fun Brontosaurus But Not Until June 2020

The Mojo Fun Brontosaurus Deluxe model, regarded as an impressive sauropod replica by those lucky enough to have had the chance to view the prototype and pre-production samples, is also affected.  This twenty-three centimetre long Brontosaurus had been expected in early March but it is not likely to be available now until the early summer.

A spokesperson from Everything Dinosaur commented:

“We are grateful to Mojo Fun for their swift action.  By informing Everything Dinosaur we can build in contingency plans to help to bring in new models from this range as quickly as possible.  This is a fast moving story, we will do all we can to keep our customers informed about new model availability.  Fortunately, we have managed to build up buffer stocks of the popular Mojo Fun prehistoric and extinct model range and we should be able to support sales of existing models for some time to come.”

The Impressive Mojo Fun Brachiosaurus Dinosaur Model is Also Delayed

COVID-19 (Coronavirus) Information

By | March 2nd, 2020|Everything Dinosaur News and Updates, Main Page, Press Releases|0 Comments

COVID-19 (Coronavirus) Information from Everything Dinosaur

The continuing spread of COVID-19 (coronavirus) in recent weeks has caused concern across our planet.  In view of this widespread anxiety and in response to a number of emails and other enquiries received, Everything Dinosaur has issued the following statement.

The COVID-19 (Coronavirus) outbreak and its continuing spread has global implications and affects producers, retailers and importers across a vast spectrum of goods and services, not just from China and other parts of Asia.  It is extremely serious for those involved and we would like to convey our thoughts and sympathies to all those people who have been affected by this virus.

New Models Coming into Stock at Everything Dinosaur

We are aware that production plans and schedules for a number of new for 2020 prehistoric animals and figures that were due to come into Everything Dinosaur have already been interrupted.  Delays in manufacture and subsequent shipping are an inevitable consequence of the current global situation.  Our team members remain in constant dialogue with our supply partners, a dialogue that commenced several weeks ago, as part of our forward planning and our objective to mitigate the impact of the outbreak and spread of COVID-19 on our business.

As soon as we have definite information with regards to the expected arrival of new for 2020 models, then we shall share this by publishing such information on our social media platforms.  However, at this stage it is still too early to tell what the effects of the virus might be but we remain optimistic that all reasonable measures are in place to minimise disruption.

Existing Stock of Dinosaur and Prehistoric Animal Models

With regards to stock of existing models, Everything Dinosaur has built up a substantial inventory as part of its plans to take all reasonable measures to minimise the consequences of this outbreak.  Stock levels were built up towards the end of 2019 and in January 2020 in part, as a precaution against any problems that might have emerged in the global logistics chain.  We remain confident that we have enough inventory to support the needs of our customer base.  Although, some disruption to postal and other delivery systems may occur, which may result in some delay in receipt of orders. Our team members are doing all they can to maintain our excellent record of swift dispatch and we are liaising with our postal and courier partners to assess what is, understandably, a fluid situation.

We are committed to continuing our award-winning business as usual, the recent Feefo accolade of the “Platinum Trusted Service Award”, the highest award possible from this independent rating company, demonstrates that Everything Dinosaur does all it can to support its customers.

Can I Catch COVID-19 from a Parcel or the Contents of a Parcel?

At Everything Dinosaur, we have received a number of queries concerning whether it is safe to receive a parcel which might contain an item that was originally manufactured in Asia.  It is important to point out, that as Everything Dinosaur has built up extensive stocks, the vast majority of items in our inventory were manufactured and moved out of Asia long before the virus outbreak occurred.

The World Health Organisation (WHO), has issued guidance in regard to the receipt of parcels from China, we would suggest that the advice relating to the parcel itself would also apply to the contents of this parcel, in this case a prehistoric animal figure or replica.

The WHO states that it is safe to receive packages, you are not at risk of contracting COVID-19 (coronavirus).  From previous analysis, coronaviruses do not survive long on objects such as packages, nor do they survive long on other surfaces such as the surfaces of our products.

Yes, It is Safe to Receive Items from China

Is is safe to receive a item from China?

It is safe to receive a prehistoric animal model from Everything Dinosaur – the virus does not survive long on surfaces.

We will issue an update if and when the situation substantively changes.

Thank you.

CollectA Deluxe Protoceratops Video Preview

Everything Dinosaur is expecting to take delivery of the first batch of the new for 2020 CollectA prehistoric animal models in just a few weeks.  One of the new figures will be the 1:6 scale replica of Protoceratops (P. andrewsi).  To help dinosaur fans and model collectors to appreciate the superb detailing on this replica, we have made a short sixty second preview video.  This is the first video that utilises our new turntable, this is really helpful when it comes to displaying dinosaur models and figures.

The CollectA Protoceratops measures around 24 cm in length and those bristles on the tail stand approximately 11 cm high.  Everything Dinosaur has invested in a small turntable so that viewers of the company’s videos can get a really good look at prehistoric animal models and replicas.  In this short video preview, the detail on the Protoceratops can be clearly seen, with features such as the articulated lower jaw and cloaca visible.

“The turntable permits us to display a model in such a way that viewers can get a really good look at the figure.  We can operate the turntable in either a clockwise or an anti-clockwise direction, so our YouTube channel subscribers have a 360˚ view of the prehistoric animal on display.  We intend to post up more videos providing previews of up and coming models in the future, after all, we have a lot of new dinosaurs coming into stock in the next two months or so.”
