A Video Preview of Schleich 2017 Dinosaur Models

This month, saw a couple of Everything Dinosaur team members visit a trade show.  We had lots of meetings to attend and whilst at the event, we took the opportunity to shoot a quick video featuring four of the new for 2017 Schleich dinosaur models.  We appreciate the lighting at such venues does not always help when it comes to creating videos, but we thought that we could at least provide a quick peek at some of the larger Schleich models coming into our warehouse in just a few days.

Schleich Dinosaur Models

The dinosaur models featured in the video are the Schleich Brachiosaurus (interesting skin texture on the back and tail of this model), the Allosaurus with an articulated jaw (please excuse the grammatical error in the narration).  Plus, the Stegosaurus and the feathered Utahraptor, Schleich getting to grips with feathered dromaeosaurs by bring out a shaggy coated Utahraptor to join the existing range of Schleich models that includes “scaly raptors”.  The video is quite short, it is under forty-five seconds long, but at least it provides a preview.

Schleich Figures

The New for 2017 Schleich Brachiosaurus Dinosaur Model

One of the new introductions is the Schleich Brachiosaurus.  The designers have chosen to give this dinosaur model a very textured skin.  It is as if this super-sized dinosaur had super-sized scales on its neck, its back and on the tail, plus partially on the upper limbs.  It is certainly quite an interesting effect, one that will make this dinosaur model very popular with those young dinosaur fans who like to see large scales on models.

As with all the Schleich models the paintwork is very good, and there is plenty of detail to be found within the range. Schleich dinosaurs are suitable for children from three years and upwards.

Beautiful Model Dinosaurs at Barford Primary

By |2023-04-18T22:23:57+01:00January 21st, 2017|General Teaching, Key Stage 1/2|Comments Off on Beautiful Model Dinosaurs at Barford Primary

Model Dinosaurs Made by an Artist

Children at Barford Primary (Year 1), have been studying dinosaurs at school and Everything Dinosaur came along to give them an insight into how fossils form and what they can tell us about life in the past.

The Year 1 classes have a wonderful and spacious sports hall for them to enjoy.  On the walls of the sports hall and elsewhere in the school, which is located in the heart of Ladywood (Birmingham, West Midlands), are some wonderful paintings of characters from children’s literature.  These inspirational paintings feature some classic scenes and characters from children’s books, such as “The Secret Garden” by Frances Hodgson Burnett as well as more modern tales such as those by J. K. Rowling (Harry Potter).

Beautiful Model Dinosaurs

What caught our dinosaur expert’s eye were the large models of various animals on display throughout the school.  There were even two large dinosaur models, a Stegosaurus and a very colourful Tyrannosaurus rex.

The school provides its pupils with lots of interesting “hands on” experiences and the fossil and dinosaur workshop was enjoyed by the two classes of Year 1 children.  The school often invites musicians and artists from the local community to work with the children to help create an inspiring learning environment.  Lurking behind a corner, keeping watch on the comings and goings, was a five-foot-high model of T. rex.

Brightly Coloured Dinosaur Models

We are not quite sure as to the colouration of the models, we suspect that many dinosaurs were brightly coloured and there was plenty of counter shading within the Order Dinosauria, but multi-coloured squares might be pushing the bounds of reason a bit too far.  However, with these fantastic models and the beautiful paintings, the children certainly have a super learning environment.

For models and replicas of dinosaurs and other prehistoric animals: Dinosaur and Prehistoric Animal Models.

Our dinosaur expert was given a set of questions that the children from each class had composed.  He did his best to answer them and praised the children for their excellent handwriting.  Such experiences such as a dinosaur and fossil workshop reinforce understanding of a term topic and help develop a greater enthusiasm for learning.

We are sure that the Stegosaurus and the wonderful Tyrannosaurus rex approved.
