#MuseumDinos

In celebration of the 10th birthday of the The Children's Museum of Indianopolis' Dinosphere we are joining culturethemes.blogspot.co.uk/ for a dinosaur fest on twitter.

As you can guess in a museum of plastics we do not have any real dinosaurs but we do have some lovely specimens from the plasticeous period all of which were featured in our Beastly Designs exhibition.

Our oldest specimen is the Watersaurus, a proud, long-necked beast with a blow moulded form designed for watering the garden.

Next is the Trunkisaurus Rex, a ride-along children's suitcase.

And lastly, the Tatty Devine necklace inspired by a real MuseumDino from the Natural History Museum, London.
