My handmade--and homeschool!--philosophy calls for simplicity, beauty, and accuracy. The simplicity means that these dinosaurs don't have googly eyes or sewn embellishments or other pieces that wear down, fall off, and distract from the function of the form. Each creature is represented in silhouette for its best identification. Each creature is hand-cut from felt made from recycled plastic--I don't eat meat, and I don't create with new wool. And each creature is accurately represented--these are real dinosaurs and prehistoric creatures, and their accurate silhouettes allow you to easily identify and memorize them.
Included in the set are: one diplodocus; one small and one large stegosaurus; one pterosaur; one small and one large brachiosaurus; one volcano and one smoke plume; one mountain range; and one T Rex.
