JurassicCollectables and Everything Dinosaur

One of the most exciting things about collecting dinosaur models is being able to swap views and feedback on the figures.  One of the best places out there to do this on the whole of the “world wide web” is the YouTube channel of JurassicCollectables.  How appropriate then, on the night of the Academy Awards (the Oscars), for Everything Dinosaur to announce that the UK-based mail order company has teamed up with the super talented film makers at JurassicCollectables!

Jurassic Collectables have operated a YouTube channel for the best part of seven years.  With over 46,000 subscribers and some 30.5 million views, this has certainly become the go to place for collectors and dinosaur fans to catch up on the latest prehistoric animal model introductions.  Take for example, the review of the new for 2016 Schleich Dilophosaurus model, one of the latest additions to our own Schleich product portfolio.  Great lighting, enables this replica to be shown off in all its glory and we love the attention to detail that the video reviewer shows, just like the attention to detail shown in the actual skin texture on the Dilophosaurus itself.

Commenting on the partnership with Everything Dinosaur, all round good guy JC commented:

“Jurassic Collectables YouTube channel is an on line video archive for all things Jurassic Park and Dinosaurs.  In the early 1990’s there was a palpable fascination with Dinosaurs that was realised through Spielberg’s ground breaking film.  Through a lens of Jurassic-nostalgia, the aim of the channel is to provide a friendly in depth look at all dinosaur products.  This is why Jurassic Collectables is honoured to be partnered with Everything Dinosaur, an on-line store they regularly call upon for the latest in Dinosaur figurines and merchandise.”

Now that’s an accolade for the hard-working team members at Everything Dinosaur, perhaps it’s time for us to take a curtain call!

Tonight, Hollywood might be abuzz with the Dolby Theatre hosting the 88th Academy Awards but check out the JurassicCollectables YouTube channel for some super dinosaur themed videos.  An Oscar for best picture perhaps?

John Locke Academy Explores Dinosaurs

Foundation Stage Children Discover Dinosaurs (Dinosaurs with John Locke Academy)

Friday was “find a dinosaur day” for the Foundation classes at John Locke Academy.   The eager, young prehistoric animal fans in Nursery and Reception have just started their term topic and it’s all about dinosaurs!  In the well organised and spacious classrooms there were lots of creative, dinosaur themed activities for the children to get to grips with.  There was even a set of very colourful dinosaur eggs on display.  It looks like the children had enjoyed making a nest for these huge eggs.

During the workshops we were able to encourage the children to think of some amazing describing words as we examined the teeth and jaws of carnivores.  Impressive pre-knowledge was demonstrated by a number of the children.  If our dinosaur expert ever gets stuck whilst studying a fossil, we now know who to get in touch with.

To contact Everything Dinosaur to learn more about our outreach work: Email Everything Dinosaur.

As part of Everything Dinosaur’s support for the varied and challenging scheme of work that had been developed by the enthusiastic teaching team, we were able to provide some colourful dinosaur themed word mats and a useful pronunciation guide, so that the grown-ups could keep up with all the budding palaeontologists.

All to soon, it was time for our dinosaur expert to say goodbye, as each of the classes lined up in very smart, straight lines there was just time for a special “T. rex” finger wave!

Everything Dinosaur stocks a large range of dinosaur themed toys, gifts and games which have all been tested and approved by our enthusiastic teaching team.
