The Difference Between our Fossil Finds and the Fossil Gift Set

We received an enquiry via email from a lady who wanted to know the difference between our “Fossil Finds” and the “Fossil Gift Set”.  That’s a good question, as with all the products that we put into our website, we take lots of pictures so that potential purchasers can have a really good look at the items, and as in this case we can always be emailed if further information is required.

The “Fossil Finds” are blocks of gypsum that contain a plastic model of a dinosaur skeleton.  There are six in the series – Diplodocus, T. rex, Triceratops, Spinosaurus, Pachycephalosaurus and Velociraptor.  We wanted to find a way of giving young children the experience of finding their very own dinosaur skeleton and digging it up.

The wooden pick and brush in the kit are just like the tools we use when we are excavating next to fossil bone.  Once the dinosaur pieces have been excavated the little skeleton model can be assembled.

To view the extensive range of dinosaur and prehistoric animal themed toys and gifts, take a look at Everything Dinosaur’s award-winning website: Dinosaur Toys and Gifts.

The “Fossil Gift Box” contains real, genuine fossils.  Namely two Ammonite fossils, a fossil and the counter piece to this fossil (imagine an ammonite split in two and polished so the internal structure can be seen), plus a fossil of an orthocone, a strange, marine invertebrate that lived before the age of dinosaurs.  Finally, the Fossil Gift Box contains a very well preserved fossil shark tooth, dating from around 50 million years ago.

Everything Dinosaur stocks an amazing range of models of important zonal fossils as recognised in the fossil record.  There are replicas of ammonites, nautiloids, belemnites, a model of an Orthoceras and trilobite figures.

To view the range of zonal fossil replicas, take a look at: CollectA Age of Dinosaurs Prehistoric Life Models.

Our company is staffed by real dinosaur and fossil experts, there are so many fakes and poor quality fossils on the market that before we decided to add this fossil gift set to our range, one of our experts met up with all the suppliers to check on the quality and to verify the authenticity of the fossils.

Hope this explanation helps when it comes to sorting out dinosaur fossil finds kits and fossil gift boxes.
