Toys For All

It has been quite a few weeks since I have been able to share toys on here. We have discussed a number of dinosaurs over the past few weeks, at least, that had no toys. Toys are great for a number of reasons including putting dinosaur names into the hands, literally, of young dinosaur enthusiasts, potentially seeding the next generation with new favorite dinosaurs! The most unfortunate thing about some of those toys though is that they are only very vaguely reminiscent of the dinosaurs that they are said to portray. The group of collected prosauropods and basal sauroodomorphs below, for instance, is labeled with many names including Anchisaurus and Plateosaurus amongst a few others that may not even be recognized names now. At least the bipedal stance of these toys is mostly correct (forgive old toys for being propped up by their tails!). The hands are completely wrong of course, but there is a potential start to toy involvement with Anchisaurus.
