I just logged in to TFF,  for the first time on my phone.  This is a test to see how it works.

If you look at your pictures and you can edit them. You can most the time spin the photograph with the crop tool.

It is interesting how the plastic toy dinosaur reflexs the paleontology of the times the toys were  manufactured . Form early misguided views of the T.rex In the kangaroo style pose, with it’s  tail dragging to the ground . Right up to the modern interpretation of T.rex with its tail held height more like a bird pose.

Nice topic.

 

I played a lot with schleich dinosaurs (and animals in general) when I was younger. I played hundreds of hours with these and most of them don't even have a scratch. I was told these are all handpainted. I stopped 'collecting' these because I think the old ones, look way better than the new ones.Total.thumb.jpg.54ffefb502afee6d15eb6512084a6bb5.jpg

Super plastics, these ones. :)

Among the better quality ones we have seen here.

I just was looking though my thread and realised not everyone will know what a wonderful thing a Mold A Rama machine is . You add two dollers into the slot and the machine injection molds you a cool toy as you watch.

I love those!  I think I got a mold-o-rama space shuttle from the museum of science and industry, but unfortunately any dinos I might have had didn't survive to the present day.  Love the smell of them when they come out of the machine.

Yeah Mrs Rico and I decided they make really cool gift so we bought lots of them and gave them out as Christmas presents, when we got home. We don’t have anything this cool in the UK.

Thanks for posting the space shuttle.  That brings back fond memories of the one I got in the early 1980s.:)
