Would you like to be a paleontologist?
Well now you can practice being a real dinosaur digger with your very own Tumblehome Dino Excavation Kit!!!
This excavation kit contains one (1) TYRANNOSAURUS kit, pictured above; the other 3 dinosaur kits are not included with this product – please order the other 3 separately.
Make one of four really cool dinosaur fossils yourself, by excavating them from plaster and assembling the bones you find into a 4 to 6 inch dinosaur, which you can keep and display. Collect all 4: Velociraptor, Stegosaurus, Tyrannosaurus and Triceratops.
Inside the kit, we provide everything you need – a mini excavation tool, and a brush to dig out each bone carefully. The dinosaur fossil parts can be assembled easily with small built-in connectors – and no glue is required.
Our Tumblehome excavation kits are extremely high quality – not like all the other ordinary fossil kits out there. Our plaster offers a very realistic soft stone-like texture for pretend excavation play — and the dinosaurs which you extract from the matrix are not only more accurate anatomically, but they also feature moving arms and legs and the heads can turn and jaws can open and close. Because our dinosaurs are made from a tough child-safe plastic, they don’t break during the extraction process like so many of the other kits out there.
Here is a video that shows how simple it is to do a dino kit excavation (this video shows an experienced adult at about 2-2.5x speed). Typically we find it takes young children (lower elementary grades) about 30 m to 1 hour to assemble a kit by themselves. Adult help is always appreciated!
Below is a sample instruction kit page. For the entire assembly instructions, please download the THL Dino-Excavation-Assembly Instructions PDF HERE.
This product is safe for children aged five and up (5+), and is fun for people of all ages.
