Review: Kenner Jurassic Park series II Gallimimus

Posted on Leave a comment

Jurassic Park series II, released by Kenner in 1994, was a line of action figures and dinosaurs based on the popular film and succeeded Kenner’s toy line released the year before. One of the most popular and sought-after figures in the line was the Gallimimus, a herbivorous dinosaur which was seen in one of the film’s most iconic scenes when the T. rex attacks a flock of Gallimimus.

Big milestone for Jurassic Toys – The Museum

Posted on Leave a comment

Jurassic Toys was always intended from the start 20 years ago to be a website where I could display my Jurassic Park collection, giving everyone around the world the opportunity to get to look into my Jurassic life. With the launch of Jurassic Toys – The Museum, I finally achieved everything I wanted from my website: give the visitors the possibility to browse the collection the way they want: sort by movie, manufacturer, release year, subline, toy type and so on. However, registering and photographing over 1100 objects takes some time, but a major milestone has now been reached! Over…

Jurassic Tamagotchi are hatching again

Posted on Leave a comment

If you’re of a certain generation, you’ll remember the Tamagotchi hype from the mid 1990’s. Everyone was going crazy for the virtual pets that were created by Bandai in Japan.

The success of these virtual pets was so huge, that companies started releasing licensed versions, which included…

In the early 2000’s there was no such thing as movie-inspired LEGO sets like we have now for Harry Potter, Ghostbusters, Back to the Future, Jurassic World and many more. With Star Wars being the only exception which had an X-Wing turned into a brick model in 1999, followed by sets…
