Schleich Dinosaurs

In my 12 days of Christmas I have been give a Schleich Dinosaur, the one we were given is a 

Parasaurolophus, a plant eating dinosaur.

With the news that Jurassic Park is set to be released in eyepopping
3D and brand new species being discovered, dinosaurs
are the hottest prehistoric playmates of the summer.
Children and dinosaur fans can now also unearth their own pack, as the fiercest Jurassic inhabitants come to life with Schleich’s new Dinosaur collection!

Almost 225 million years after the first dinosaurs
roamed the Earth, Schleich has recreated the most
iconic prehistoric predators and released them into the
wild ready to delight dinosaur-fans. An ever popular
boys’ toy, these anatomically correct models take dino
fun to a whole new terrifying level! Whilst small enough
for children’s hands, the intricate details ensure that
these beasts remain ferocious.

Kids can create their own prehistoric worlds, choosing
from a whole pack of hand painted dinos. The new stars of
the carnivorous collection include Allosaurus, a very
dangerous dinosaur indeed, the towering Giganotosaurus
and the absolutely infamous Tyrannosaurus rex! Each fearsome predator features the
powerful moveable jaw and existing favourites have also been refreshed with this awesome
jaw. The dino pack is getting ready to pounce!
But don’t worry; there are some friendlier faces in Schleich’s Dinosaur collection. As a
herbivore, the Brachiosaurus sticks to munching on plants but, at 80 tonnes, is still a
formidable creature and weighs as much as 16 elephants!
With so many figures to choose from, Schleich has a prehistoric playmate for everyone!

Fun facts about the Parasaurolophus

Its crest could be as long as 1.80 metres - as long as an adult human is high!

  • Conservation Status: Extinct (EX)
  • Global HomeNorth America
  • Primary Habitat: Forest
Almost 13 metres long, the Parasaurolophus weighed two tonnes! This dinosaur with its long bony crest on its head and rounded beak was a curious sight. The ridge may have served three purposes: one, to produce a distinct call; two, to improve his sense of smell; and three, to attract a mate. With its toothless beak, it probably grazed on tree leaves.
