Have a “Jurassic Style” Birthday Party!

Steven Spielberg’s “Jurassic Park” and “The Lost World” are unforgettable movies, even for those who are not obsessed with dinosaurs (but if you are obsessed, even better).  They are timeless and universal in their ability to entertain both young and old.  These movies are monumental works of film art, both in their special effects and in the morality tale that they tell.  No one who watches them could go untouched; the good guys make it out alive and the bad guys are victims of their own badly-thought-out creations.  For dinosaur enthusiasts, these films really have no peer.  It would be difficult to find a better theme for a child’s birthday party, or to find one that had a more widespread appeal for the other children, and even adults who will be attending. 

Dinosaur Corporation has a selection of Jurassic dinosaur party decorations, games, cups, plates, napkins, table covers, invitations, thank you notes and loot bags that will blow your mind.  Their incredible selection covers just about everything you can think of that you would need to throw a very, very gala dino event and at a very reasonable price as well.  There is even a free T-Rex “Happy Birthday “ banner that can be sent along with your order.  Everything will match perfectly and without a lot of trudging from store to store.

There are so many ideas that can be had from just looking at the awesome and wide-ranging selection of party supplies for a Jurassic shindig.  Making the cake your self would be no challenge, with the Brontosaurus, Stegosaurus and T-Rex pans that are offered.  There are even cake toppers, cupcake toppers, dinosaur shaped candles and a silicone mold of eight different dinosaurs that would be great for individual cakes or gelatin Jigglers.

Everything that you could possibly imagine needing for an awesome Jurassic dinosaur birthday party is offered at Dinosaur Corporation’s online store, not to mention the truly cool gifts that any dinosaur lover would treasure for the birthday boy or girl of any age.  So far as party favors to fill those Jurassic loot bags – that’s going to be a subject for another article, because they are just too numerous to cover quickly, along with all the festive party decorations.

Another thing that should be noted are the very nice free gifts that Dinosaur Corporation has to offer, depending on the total amount of your purchase.  There are several different styles of T-shirts, hats, piñatas and toys to choose from, even at the lower amounts.

If you’re thinking about throwing a dinosaur party, Dinosaur Corporation has some really great items and terrific ideas to make your party a memorable and exciting event.

Telling Time is More Fun with a Dinosaur Watch

Every little boy and girl will learn about dinosaurs sometime within their young lives. Most will become obsessed with dinosaurs, learning their names, what they ate, and just how big they really were. As adults we will try to teach the little ones everything we can about the world while keeping the lessons fun and unique.

The kids dinosaur watch does numerous jobs at once. It's not just a fun little toy they will play with and forget in an hour but something they can wear and see for years. Little ones love to dress up like moms and dads, and this gives them the opportunity to wear an adult piece of jewelry made just for their little wrists. It can handle the rough treatment kids will give it and can easily be cleaned in order to look like new day after day.

The kids dinosaur watch features four great dinosaurs on it making your kids into paleontologists everyday. There are T-Rex, Brachiosaurus, Triceratops and Stegosaurus all imaged in a realistic cartoon appearance. Kids love the design and go nuts for the dinosaurs on it. This is the perfect way to teach children about telling time as well. The watch face has an easy to read analog display with the numbers one through twelve displayed. It should also be noted that watches will also help kids to form good habits for life, as they will begin to understand what being on time and what being late actually means. It will also teach them different time increments, such as just how much time five minutes feels like when you only have five minutes to do something. This gives them a personal understanding of what you are saying and how they need to react to different measures of time.

A dinosaur watch is the perfect way to start a child with life long lessons of learning made fun.
Children of all ages love dinosaurs and capturing their interest with something fun and interesting gives them the first steps to successful learning. It is the perfect way to broach so many other subjects with a child such as extinction and evolution. There are volcanoes in the picture on the watch face, showing tectonic plates. These subjects may be too large to teach your child right now, but putting the ideas in their heads will make learning so much easier in the future. Dinosaurs really are the perfect tools to use for teaching a variety of scientific subjects,  because they are the base that will hold a child’s attention.

Remote Control Dinosaur Toy

Dinosaurs have been extinct for a very long time. This has not stopped people from finding themselves at one time or another in their lives infatuated with these amazing creatures. Why wouldn't they amaze someone? It is exciting to learn about the way they looked and how they lived. How big were certain dinosaurs? What did they eat? How did they act? How would they taste?  Like chicken? There are so many questions that a person can ask about dinosaurs. Because dinosaurs have been gone for such a long time, the answers are sometimes not easy to learn. Even though a great amount of information has been learned about dinosaurs, there is so much more that scientists have not yet discovered. Paleontologists are continually learning more about dinosaurs as they continually study. The job of a paleontologist is never ending work. There are dinosaurs that scientist have not even discovered yet.

Learning about dinosaurs is a fun and exciting thing to do. Everyone has their own favorite dinosaur. For most, it is the Tyrannosaurus Rex. Others may favor the Triceratops, Brontosaurus or the Velociraptor. Maybe the Stegosaurus is someone's favorite dinosaur. No matter what someone's favorite dinosaur is, dinosaurs in general are fascinating to learn about, and there are many different ways to learn about them. Unless a person is a paleontologist, the knowledge that they gain about dinosaurs will usually come from reading and watching films. These are great ways to learn about dinosaurs. What about children though? What is the best way for them to learn about dinosaurs? It is no secret that children love to play. It is also no secret that children love dinosaurs. Kids also love technology.  Put it all together and what have you got?  A remote control dinosaur toy, that’s what! 
Fun play and learning will always bring out the best in children, and make learning fun.

What better way is there to showcase a dinosaur to a child than by getting them their very own remote control dinosaur toy? The Tyrannosaurus Rex was the king of the dinosaurs and was greatly feared by other dinosaurs. When a person is trying to choose what type of dinosaur toy they should get for a kid they can never go wrong with a Tyrannosaurus Rex. Kids will see the remote control dinosaur toy come alive, and the best part is that they will be in full control of the dinosaur with a three function transmitter. They will control where and when the dinosaur stomps around and will be fascinated with all of the cool roaring sounds that the dinosaur makes. Up to six seconds of audio can also be recorded and can be played back over and over again. What can be more fun for a child than recording their most vicious dinosaur roars and having it come out as the sound on their dinosaur toy? The head of the Tyrannosaurus Rex also moves up, down, left and right. The mouth opens up wide as the remote control dinosaur toy lets out the roar sounds. A remote control dinosaur toy is a great gift for a kid.

If this cool remote T-Rex toy sounds like something that you'd like to know more about, click here.  It's the kind of toy that would appeal to both boys and girls (T-Rex loves to chase down Barbies and maybe even take a bite out of My Little Pony). 

Make Dinosaur Corporation your source for all things prehistoric.  You'll find everything you can imagine, from reproductions of Joseph Moravec's original oil paintings of the dinosaurs and their world, to linens and wall decor for a dino lover's bedroom.  They also carry a complete line of party supplies for dinosaur themed parties, including one that is inspired by Steven Spielberg's "Jurassic Park" and "Lost World" movies that includes everything from dinosaur cups, plates, napkins and dinosaur loot bags to dinosaur invitations and dinosaur thank you cards, with a T-Rex banner to welcome party goers.  There will be a lot more information about this in an upcoming blog.

Bring The Past To Life With Woolly Mammoth Toys

The days of dinosaurs have always been a source of fascination to the modern world. Connecting to the past can morph into many types of collecting, and model collecting would have to be considered one of the most popular forms. To be able to look at, hold, and study the features of an animal long extinct can be a thrilling and satisfying experience for young and old alike.

When collecting prehistoric animals, no collection would be complete without the woolly mammoth. People always seem to have a special connection to the woolly mammoth that they have with no other animals from the distant past. Early man would not only hunt the mammoth to survive, but paint their images on cave walls out of awe and respect for such a majestic animal. To this day, the woolly mammoth still draws the same awe and respect that early humans held for it in their humble beginnings.

Fortunately, the makers of woolly mammoth toys understand that the more realistic the model, the more immersed you can become in thoughts of a distant past. Their toys are not only great for children; they are also perfect for the collector who wants only the very best. The models are sculpted and hand-painted, paying attention to every fine detail. Made of a hard vinyl material, you can be certain that they will be a proud part of your collection for many years to come.

Part of what makes us feel a closer connection to the woolly mammoth than most of the prehistoric creatures is that completely preserved specimens have been discovered in places such as Siberia and Alaska. We have been able to study them in a way we could never do with most other animals of that time. This makes it possible to know exactly what the woolly mammoth looked like in its lifetime.

The makers of woolly mammoth toys take full advantage of the knowledge gained from the discovery of such specimens. They use that knowledge to bring you some of the most realistic looking mammoths in the collecting world. When you see the work and quality in each toy, you will feel as if you are holding the past in your hands. When holding one, it is not hard to understand why the woolly mammoth has held such a fascination for us since our ancestors first walked beside them so many years ago.

Whether it is for a child who wants a toy for hours of dinosaur fun or for a serious collector, you cannot go wrong with woolly mammoth toys. When you hold one in your hand, collector or not, they will bring the child inside you to life as few other toys could ever hope to do. If you want a sculpted, hand-painted toy that is made from high quality materials, then look no further.

This will be a purchase you will never regret. It will bring a smile to any child's face and you will also find a smile on your face as well.

Why A Dinosaur Bone Puzzle Is Such A Great Item To Have

While it is no secret that kids have attention spans and interests that are constantly evolving, one subject that kids nearly always become obsessed with at one point or another is dinosaurs. This is a great thing, as learning about prehistoric life is not only fun for them, but enriching as well. One of the best items to have for those who have kids themselves, or teach young people, is a dinosaur bone puzzle.

The biggest reason why having a dinosaur bone puzzle is a great thing is that it is an educational toy. It can be used in a school environment with great success, which is why so many educators integrate these puzzles into their lesson plans. On the other hand, they are also perfect for home use. Most parents would prefer to have toys that can at least help their kids learn something as they are playing, making this a great item.

Trying to solve a dinosaur bone puzzle is great for child's mind for a couple of reasons. To start, it is a nice and fun way for them to work on their reasoning skills. They can see what is already accomplished on the puzzle, think, then make decisions. This seems like a basic thing, but it is very important for young kids to use their minds as often as possible in ways such as this. It will not only help them to complete the puzzle and learn about dinosaurs, but also improve their mental dexterity for other tasks both at home and in school. Basically, it will improve their overall educational experience.

Another reason why these puzzles are so effective is that they allow kids to work together on something that they will all enjoy. It is important for kids to learn how to work in groups, and the task of completing a puzzle presents an interesting and enriching social environment. In addition to this, it is also good for kids to learn that they can accomplish things on their own, and completing a puzzle over a period of time is a great way for them to build up their confidence and eagerness to accomplish more.

These are just a few of the reasons why puzzles featuring dinosaur bones are such a beneficial thing to have in any classroom or home. They are the perfect way for kids to work on something that is fun and learn valuable lessons along the way.

Dino Backpacks Are Great

When children go to school, they have multiple items that they need to carry with them. They have books, their homework and their other supplies. The best thing to get them is a backpack so that they can carry all their items with them, comfortably, while keeping their hands free.

Dino backpacks are great items that children love to use to carry their things. These backpacks are made strong and sturdy so that they will be able to fit a lot of things into them. They are very durable, and will last a long time. 

These practical and kid-friendly backpacks are reasonably priced and they will be well received by any dinosaur-loving child. Since they are fun to carry and cool looking, children will be proud to receive them, and they will enjoy showing them off to their friends. 

When kids are using their Dino backpacks, parents will know that they will have all of their items with them. They can even fit their lunches in it if they need to bring their own to school. These backpacks make it so convenient for parents to get their kids off to school without a lot of problems. Since they make so much sense for parents, they are becoming more and more popular. 

Using backpacks is also better for the kids. The weight of the books and items that they need to carry is distributed evenly across the back. It is held up by shoulder straps so that neither arm is weighted down too much when they are carrying their items. This also allows the kids to have their hands free in case they fall or something else happens that they need to use their arms and hands for. This can make a huge difference for the safety of kids especially in inclement weather when they may slip and fall.

These Dino backpacks always make great gift ideas for kids for birthdays, holidays and for any other occasion during the year. They will love getting them as a gift and will use them all the time. It is a good idea to fill the backpack with items that they can use for school, like notebooks, pens, pencils, crayons, ruler and other items. The pack can also be filled with clothing items that they need and can be great for carrying things they’ll need for a sleepover, things to amuse themselves with on a road trip or a night at grandma’s house. 

All kids should have a backpack to carry around with them. It will take a lot of the pressure off of them to know they have everything in one backpack rather than in a lot different bags. They will use it on a daily basis to go to school and for other outings. They work so well for the kids, and parents love them too.

Inflatable Sea Creatures Stir a Child's Imagination

Having an undersea theme birthday party, or a pool party with a sea creature theme, has never been easier, and children will love every moment of the time they get to spend swimming with the sharks, octopus, dolphins, killer whales, sea horse and fish that they can get in this inflatable sea creatures set.

Parents will be thrilled about how much their children will enjoy using this cute collection to help create make-believe undersea adventures. Not just for pool and birthday parties, these versatile sea animals can cause an exciting stir when they are suspended from the ceilings in a child's bedroom. With the proper colors of paint and wall paper patterns on the wall, combined with these inflatable animals hanging throughout the room, a child's bedroom can become a place for underwater sea adventures, the like of which they would never have been able to experience with any other types of play things. 

The fairly large size of these sea creatures makes it easy for a child to imagine being an adventurous deep sea diver, and the colorful surroundings, from the walls and other decorative touches, to the inflatable sea creatures themselves, lend an imaginative help to lift children into a realm of fantasy that will encourage them to think outside the bedroom walls and about fascinating adventures in distant places. 

What child doesn't want to use their surrounding environment to play make believe? To populate their imaginary kingdoms with larger than life objects becomes an ideal set up to help make their pretend time fun and more life like. Their imagination should spark a fire in their minds, igniting their thoughts to create a desire for more knowledge of the natural world that surrounds them. With parents' help, they might even find themselves learning even more about the wide variety of sea animals that populate our vast waters and the importance of preserving the health of our oceans and the diverse life they support. 

If done right, the combination of these inflatable sea creatures, an encouraging environment like a pool or an imaginatively decorated bedroom, and eager children playing together, might serve as the catalyst to bring a desire for a more animal and earth friendly environment into children’s' lives, teaching them not only about the world around them, but also to foster favorable interaction with other children. What parent wouldn't welcome that?

Kids have an amazing sense of curiosity. They love learning, especially when the lessons are fun, thought provoking and engaging.

There are a multitude of dinosaur toys out today. These toys come in the form of stuffed animals, plastic dolls and action figures, models that need assembling, robotic remote control types and even giant inflatable toys that can be larger than the children themselves. There are also toys that are very realistic replicas of the actual dinosaur based on current scientific research.

Dinosaurs also cover a range of species and so do the toys that replicate them. These include well-known dinosaurs like the Tyrannosaurus Rex, Stegosaurus, Triceratops, and even the Pterodactyl. There are also toys for lesser-known dinosaurs such as Dimetrodon, Apatosaurus, Tanystropheus, and Kronosaurus. With names like these, what kid won't be curious?

Dinosaur Bedding for Toddlers

Dinosaurs may be extinct, but they endure through the love and fascination children have for them. It is not just little boys that love dinosaurs; little girls love them too. Through cartoons, toys and movies, dinosaurs have become fun and family friendly creatures. Dinosaur bedding for toddlers is a great idea for that little one who wants to bring the excitement of a Tyrannosaurus Rex and a Pterodactyl into their bedroom. Bedding depicting dinosaurs in an interesting way that is not scary makes a child more eager to go to bed, though even a stern look from a T-Rex does not guarantee that they will sleep.

Dinosaur bedding for toddlers is available in a variety of styles, colors and fabrics. As with any toddler bedding, it is important that dinosaur themed sheets and bedspreads be well made. Children's bedding has to be able to withstand daily wear and tear along with numerous trips through the laundry. Any appliqués on the bedding should be well sewn so that loose threads do not tangle in a child's hand or feet. While the fabric needs to be durable it should also be soft enough so that it does not irritate the more sensitive skin of a toddler.

No matter what color a child's room is, there is dinosaur bedding that will coordinate with it. For a bright, vibrant room with perhaps more than one color on the walls, dinosaur bedding that depicts the creatures in primary colors on a white background is a good choice. When a room is more classically painted and decorated in neutral colors, dinosaur bedding for toddlers in pleasing earth tones will be a perfect complement while still keeping the feel of the bedroom young and whimsical.

Toddler bedding is designed to fit toddler beds whose mattresses are the same size as a standard crib mattress. Parents who plan ahead can purchase crib bedding that can transition into toddler bedding. Dinosaur themed crib sheets can be combined with a toddler bedspread as the child grows out of the need to be secured safely in a crib. Being able to transition bedding through growing stages also enables a child who has become attached to a particular sheet or blanket to keep that without worrying that they seem like a baby. The whole point of allowing a child to sleep in a toddler bed is to instill independence in them but by using dinosaur themed bedding, it lets them know that they are not being rushed into growing up.

Bedding for toddlers that has a dinosaur theme is fun and whimsical while still being considered tough and exciting. The fascination for dinosaurs and their lore endures through all generations and keeps the feeling of playfulness alive in everyone. Tucking a little one in amid intimidating carnivores and docile herbivores allows them to feel protected, comforted and safe. When that bedding is made of durable materials that stand the test of time, it can then be passed on to younger siblings or friends.
