Jurassic Play the Schleich Way!

(16464) Giganotosaurus

(Virtual Press Office) - Learning about creatures from the Jurassic period millions of years ago, the realistic and authentic range of Dinosaurs from Schleich allows children to recreate a prehistoric world of their own.

Schleich’s hand painted Dinosaur collection includes 20 different models, plus a new one for 2010 – the Giganotosaurus. One of the largest known terrestrial carnivores, the Giganotosaurus lived between 98 and 96 million years ago, exceeding even the huge Tyrannosaurus in size.

These fabulous to-scale figures are modelled to 1:40 dimensions and are researched and reproduced in close co-operation with the Natural History Museum, Berlin. Each model comes complete with a booklet containing scientific data plus a figure of a human in the same scale, helping children to imagine what it would be like to come face to face with one of these magnificent creatures.

From the Tyrannosaurus with his characteristic upright stance to the Triceratops with his formidably shaped head and horns, the details of Schleich’s figures make this collection of dinosaurs one of a kind and will be avidly collected by boys, girls and even adults interested in our planet’s ancient history.

For more information about the entire collection read on for detailed descriptions of each new piece...

    The scaled down version of the Giganotosaurus looks fantastic with its sharp teeth and scaly skin. He was the largest carnivore to have lived with a 6 foot skull and razor sharp teeth it’s a relief they are not about today! Luckily they can be in any dinosaur fans collection though, thanks to Schleich!
