Dino Wonderland

Posted on

Did you realise that it’s 15 years since Jurassic Park was first released – it’s enough to make you feel prehistoric.

But the great thing about dinosaurs is that they never really get old. Our kids love them now just as much as us bigger kids loved them back in the day. And here at Chocovenyl we’ve been walking in a dino wonderland recently, inspired by some of the amazing dinosaur goodies we’ve collected together on our Pinterest board.

There must be something about dinosaurs which gets the creative juices firing. Something we really loved was using cardboard and a bit of imagination to help transform your cherubic child into a snarly Tyrannosaurus Rex. Or you could make up your own prehistoric creature – you just need to add ‘-osaurus’ to the end of any name.

There are also plenty of dino themed designs here on Chocovenyl as well to help create the perfect bedroom for any budding Brontosaurus – and you won’t have to spend the $63 million it cost to create Jurassic Park either.

We have the gentle vintage inspired charm of Belle & Boo’s Dino Ride designs.

Or the wonderful illustrations of Brighton illustrator Jillian Phillips and her Dino Fun collection. And even dinosaurs need to know when it’s time to got to bed, so we also have the Dino Stick-A-Clock designed by your very own Chocovenyl.

If all this dino talk has sent you into a frenzy, then you might want to organise an adventure to hunt down some of these fearsome beasts. A good place to start your family’s quest is the Dinosaur Adventure Park in Norfolk. This has everything an aspiring dino hunter could want: dinosaur trails, creepy crawlies, mazes and lots of rides which end with “-osaurus”.

The other destination you will want to track down is the Natural History Museum in London. This has free entry and offers one of the best collections of dinosaurs fossils in the world, including the 105 foot long Diplodocus, known affectionately as Dippy.

And if you can’t decide whether to go or not you could turn into a Staygosaurus. Sorry, that was one dino pun too far…
