Tinysaur: Dinosaurs Get Really, Really Small

by Paul Strauss

This has got to be the coolest thing I’ve seen this week. These incredibly small dinosaur kits let you build a miniature museum of natural history on your desktop.

Artist Kelly Farrell’s Tinysaurs are incredibly weensy kits which let you build your own mini-dinos.

Each one is laser cut out of oak tag board using a 35 watt cutting laser, and pre-perfed for (relatively) easy assembly – assuming you’ve got some really steady hands.

Assembly of Tinysaurs requires tweezers, some white glue, and some patience. But once built, these miniaturesauruses are truly a sight to behold – especially if you have a magnifying glass lying around.

The T-Rex, triceraptops, stegosaurus and woolly mammoth kits are all available over at Kelly’s Etsy shop, the Maker’s Market, or Everything Tiny and cost just $7 (USD) unassembled, and $16 with a pair of tweezers and glue in a handy gift tin.

If you don’t have the patience to build these miniature marvels for yourself, you can also buy a pre-assembled dino under glass for about $60 bucks – but where’s the fun in that?
