With the massive success of Jurassic World, prehistoric creatures are once again the talk of dinnertime conversations around the globe. While you could just settle for some CGI dinosaurs and velociraptors, why not go for the real thing?
Bait your kids into taking a bath with these awesome hooded towels made by Etsy shop Middle Brained Canvas. They’re based on Star Wars, Harry Potter, Disney movies and of course dinosaurs.
I want that white dinosaur towel so bad.
When I first saw this metal T-Rex lamp, I thought it was pretty awesome. Then I realized that it’s actually a heat lamp, which is about as close as you can get to a fire-breathing dinosaur without it actually breathing fire.
The menorah that you use during Hannukah says a lot about you. Do you use a traditional menorah or something different? Why not start a new tradition and use a Menorah Rex. You can pass this fun holiday decoration down generation after generation.
In 1992, amateur paleontologist Stan Sacrison discovered the bones of a Tyrannosaurus rex in South Dakota. The resulting skeleton was named after Stan. Made of 199 bones, STAN is world famous for being one of the most complete specimens ever found.
3D printing has delivered some really cool new things. Toys, prosthetic limbs, all kinds of stuff, but nothing as awesome as this T-Rex showerhead. In the shower no one can hear you scream as you clean.
Each year around Halloween, we see some really cool and geeky pumpkins that people are carving. Today I found a few carved pumpkins that will make the geek in you smile. My favorite is the first photo you see here, the Cylon.
These Tricera Hi-Tops from Archaix Laboratories are the single most awesome pieces of footwear I have ever seen. You can walk your triceratops feet around today’s concrete jungles, just like the real thing did ages ago.
I’d wager what most of us know of the velociraptor is what we learned from Jurassic Park. The Raptor is a smaller dinosaur that is believed to have hunted in packs. Scientists at the Korea Advanced Institute of Science and Technology have created a robot that is based on the velociraptor.
I’ve never hid the fact that I find garden gnomes creepy. The little buggers look like they are watching you every step you take. If you want to rid your garden of annoying gnomes, you need the Rampaging Kaiju Garden Gnome.
Check out this Kickstarter campaign for KitRex, which is basically a 3D paper velociraptor that you build yourself. 3D paper velociraptor? I’m in. You build the googly-eyed dinosaur by folding and tabbing together specially cut pieces of high-quality Bristol board.
Mobile devices let us look up practically anything we want to know about anywhere and anytime, but there’s nothing like looking at the real deal. Relics and artifacts invoke a sense of wonder and fire up our imagination.
If there is one thing we don’t have enough of, it is tactical dinosaurs. Check out this combat-ready velociraptor from Blue Force Gear that was on display at a recent trade show. I would ride this thing into battle in a second.
Sure, you could get yourself a Batman night light, or Superman, and they would protect you from ghosts, demons and bogeyman just fine. But if you want some real evil fighting power to combat the night’s terrors, don’t mess around.
