Merry Christmas from Everything Dinosaur

It may be Christmas and teachers, teaching assistants, administrators and the senior leadership teams of schools might be taking a well-earned break but team members at Everything Dinosaur will be hard at it planning for all the amazing dinosaur workshops scheduled to take place in the Spring Term.  However, we would like to take this opportunity to wish everyone a Merry Christmas and peaceful, prosperous 2016.  Hope you like, the dinosaur themed Christmas card we have designed.

Merry Christmas from all the Team Members at Everything Dinosaur

Merry Christmas

Dinosaurs and snow might not seem like an appropriate mix, but eager young dinosaur fans will probably point out that dinosaur fossils have been found in the Arctic Circle and in Antarctica.  These parts of the world were not quite as cold back in the Mesozoic as they are today, but dinosaurs from those high latitudes would have been used to seeing snow and to coping with freezing temperatures.  Fir trees that we associate with Christmas are also very ancient, these trees (conifers) pre-date the Dinosauria and for much of the Age of Dinosaurs these types of tree were the staple diet of most plant-eating dinosaurs.

Team members will be taking a well-deserved break, but not for too long, we have lots to keep us busy between now and the end of the year.

Just time to say once again, have a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.

Everything Dinosaur and the Festive Period

Christmas Time and Dinosaurs

Team members at Everything Dinosaur are working up to the late afternoon of Christmas Eve.  We have blog posts to finish for museums, a teaching resources article to complete and the warehouse needs a quick tidy up before Santa drops in.

We will also be monitoring the emails to deal with any customer queries should any arise.  In addition, we shall be keeping a listen out just in case we get any last minute phone calls.  As for the office and our working arrangements over the Christmas period, we shall of course, be taking a well earned break.  However, team members will be on hand throughout the majority of the holiday season to make sure that emails and other correspondence are answered promptly.

Nearly All Prepared for Christmas at Everything Dinosaur

The Joys of the Annual Stock Take for Everything Dinosaur

Once the festivities are over, we shall be commencing our annual stock take.  This is a bit of a tradition and the task is made bearable thanks to lots of hot coffee, mince pies and a few savoury morsels to keep us all going.  Undertaking an inventory of our product range and fossil collection is quite an onerous task, we have thousands of products and lots and lots of fossils, even though this year we have given away a great many of our smaller specimens to schools and other institutions as part of our work in schools.  Speaking of which, January is going to be yet another record breaking month for our dinosaur workshops in schools.

We are going to have so much fun working with all the school children.

New Models from CollectA, Schleich, Papo and Safari Ltd

2016 will see us once again expanding our product range with lots of new dinosaur models and replicas.  Only this morning we were telephoned by one of the senior managers at Papo, he wanted to tell us how excited he was after having seen the new Papo prehistoric animal models that are due out next  year.  In particular, he was “bowled over” by the new Papo Baryonyx replica that is going to be in stock at Everything Dinosaur sometime in quarter 1.

Predictions and Favourite Prehistoric Animals

Over the next few days we shall also be finalising our palaeontology predictions for the year ahead.  We shall also be looking back on the predictions we made this year.  In addition, we have our annual list of the most popular prehistoric animals of 2015 to compile.  Given all the dinosaur sales, letters, pictures and fossil photographs we receive this will take some calculating.
