Anyone for toy dinosaurs?

I had a few when I was a kid, and my daughters have a few now. (No continuity - mine all disappeared a long time ago.) Dr Naish, at Tetrapod Zoology, says
Few people believe me when I say I have what might be one of the biggest collections of toy and model animals.
and has posted photos of part of his collection of dinosaurs and other critters here and here.

I'm certainly impressed....

I was at the supermarket the other day and came across a bag of cheap plastic dinosaurs -- the really fake ones that are like $2 for the bag.

To my surprise, I realized they were exactly the same as the toy plastic dinosaurs I had as a kid, 25 years ago. Some factory in China has been turning out the same plastic dinosaurs every day for the past 25 years. It boggles the mind...
