Dinosaur Squishmallows

Have you seen the dinosaur Squishmallows? I am just learning about these squishy dinosaur pillows. Dinosaur Squishmallows came out in 2017, and since then, have taken their spot in the collectors world. Every lovable dinosaur “mallow” has its own name and personality. These plush dinosaur pillows are just so darn cute too! Dinosaur Squishmallows are available in a variety of sizes. There are tiny keychain dinosaur mallows, right up to the huge 24” dinosaur stuffie!

Dinosaur Squishmallows are so much fun to snuggle with. These dinosaur pillows just make you smile when you look at them. Dinosaur Squishmallows are full of positive energy. Trey the Triceratops is a forest green triceratops Squishmallow, and a baseball superstar. He gets in a game as often as he can. Ari the green dinosaur squishmallow is from the “Valentine Squad”. Ari dreams of one day being a DJ, and loves to play music for his friends to make them smile. A pterodactyl Squishmallow is Shantira. Shantira is a blue tie-dye pterodactyl pillow, who loves to knit. Last year Shantira Squishmallow made her two best friends matching dinosaur pyjamas! My favorite of course is the Delilah Squishmallow. This dinosaur Squishmallow is purple, which is my favorite color. Delilah the purple dinosaur Squishmallow loves to bake, especially with apples in the fall.

Dinosaur Skull

Dinosaur skulls make great home decor. A large triceratops skull hanging in the den looks much more impressive than another poor creature. If you are an apartment dweller, an ankylosaurus skull on a stand is very cool. I have a friend who has a T-Rex head in her living room. Lord Stirling is very dapper in his top hat and scarf, and is always dressing up for the holidays with various other hats to mark the occasion. 

Dinosaur skulls are best acquired on Etsy. There is a huge selection of different options, from smaller, desk sized dinosaur heads, to full sized dinosaur skull replicas. Dinosaur skull keychains are also very popular; carry your favorite triassic cranium with you wherever you go. Dinosaur skull pendants are available too, for a very cool accessory.

It is full of rhyming words, and dinosaurs of all shapes and sizes! “Dinosaurs Can’t Roar” by Layla Beason is another fantastic dinosaur hardcover for the younger generation. This dinosaur book helps to teach the difference between myth and new scientific facts about dinosaurs.

For us adults, dinosaur books abound. If you are a dinosaur fiction lover, “The Dinosaur Lords” by Victor Milan might be what you are looking for. This dinosaur paperback takes place in a setting similar to our 14th century, the difference is dinosaurs still roam the earth and have been domesticated for a number of tasks. Michael Crichton has written more than one dinosaur novel; there is the classic, “Jurassic Park”, however “Dragon Teeth” is also a dino-mite read! (See what I did there?) 

Jurassic Park

For the non-fiction dinosaur book lover, “The Rise and Fall of the Dinosaurs: A New History of a Lost World” by Steve Brusatte has been called the “best dinosaur biography” by Scientific American, and it was rated one of the best science books of 2018. It is a must read for all dinosaur enthusiasts. “King of the Dinosaur Hunters: The Life of John Bell Hatcher and the Discoveries that Shaped Paleontology” by Lowell Dingus is another fascinating dinosaur read. This dinosaur biography explores the life of the “real life Indiana Jones” and his many dinosaur finds.

Dinosaur Tattoos

Dinosaur tattoo designs are beginning to get very popular. Tattoo artists will get to sketch all types of dinosaur content often. Small dinosaur tattoos are best for people interested in a cute art design. Some ideas people have is to use even more of their body for larger dinosaur tattoos, like a Tyrannosaurus Rex. The full sleeve tattoo design is a great way to show your emotional connection to dinosaurs, while having some Jurassic size tattoo designs on your body.

When Jurassic Park was released, dinosaur tattoo content became much more popular. Prior to that, it was people who were interested in dinosaurs that would get dinosaur designs. Once the movies came out, tattoo artists saw more and more people with ideas for dinosaur content, to show their emotional connection to Jurassic Park. Often people even had the actors’ head added next to their dinosaur tattoo design. Certainly the variety of dinosaur tattoo designs have increased since the Jurassic Park tattoos have become popular.

Dinosaur Wallpaper

There are so many different options for dinosaur wallpaper for your phone or computer available. I went looking for a new dinosaur homescreen image the other day, and found some interesting stuff! Dinosaur backgrounds come in such a variety. Some are artworks like what you can find in our dinosaur art shop, and some are photo realistic. If you like a peaceful dinosaur look, there are many computer backgrounds of our favorite animals wandering across the plains, or through the trees at dawn. For a more traditional, scary design, grab a dinosaur desktop picture with two T-Rexes fighting it out! There are, of course, always the Jurassic Park computer backgrounds. These dinosaur desktop backgrounds star T-Rex and the Velociraptor. 

Dinosaur wallpaper for your computer or mobile device

Dinosaur wallpaper comes in funny options as well. A classic dinosaur computer wallpaper is the one with the T-Rex bursting through the screen, breaking the glass. That dinosaur desktop image is especially great because you can position one of your icons to fit right inside its mouth! There are many cartoon dinosaur desktop backgrounds as well. There is even a desktop wallpaper that has a dinosaur hiding inside a toothbrush. I am not entirely sure the reason for this, but perhaps there is a dentist out there who thinks that is hilarious! Another great dinosaur wallpaper is the T-Rex posed “Nightmare Before Christmas” style. As a big halloween and Tim Burton fan, this dinosaur computer background appeals to me on many levels! Dinosaur desktop pictures also come in various dinosaur memes as well. We all love a good dinosaur meme, don’t we?

There are so many options out there for dinosaur wallpapers, having a new dinosaur background every week is definitely justifiable!
