Everything Dinosaur Doing Well
Some team members at Everything Dinosaur were given the opportunity to explain what the company was up to and how the business is progressing yesterday. They were asked to contribute a piece to a daily, national UK newspaper, as a follow up article written about Everything Dinosaur last year.
Below is what we came up with, after a bit of coaching and assistance from the journalist.
Our Proposed Article
With tales of an economic downturn and difficult business conditions it makes a change to hear about an unusual but successful, small British firm that is bucking the current trend for bad news. Sales at Everything Dinosaur are up and the specialist retailer of dinosaur themed toys and games has recently had to expand its warehouse and take on more help with packing orders to cope with demand.
For the people behind Everything Dinosaur, the last 12 months have been exceptionally busy, as the company has expanded, developing more products, growing export sales and becoming established as a supplier of prehistoric animal teaching materials to schools and colleges.
Everything Dinosaur has customers all over the world. One of the company’s latest projects is to support teachers in Soweto, providing lesson plans and dinosaur information to South African school children. The team have even sent dinosaurs to the North Pole!
“Our success is down to a number of factors, everyone works very hard, we always look after our customers and we are prepared to take advice, after all, we were business novices when we started, but then the majority of people starting their own business are novices too;” commented Sue, who with her partner Mike, set the company up four years ago.
The company’s unusual blend of parents, teachers and dinosaur experts are currently gearing themselves up for the busy Christmas period, but Mike has just recently taken time out to assist with the development of a new children’s story book using dinosaur models to help teach reading skills.

Despite difficult trading conditions, the team at Everything Dinosaur are optimistic about the future and have plans to expand the company further by developing a bespoke dinosaur party themed website. Here’s one group of dinosaurs that are not likely to be going extinct!
