The Amazing Dinosaur Plant

Ages 4 & Up

If your kids love both dinosaurs and plants, this could be a great gift!

Deluxe Triassic Triops

Ages 6 & Up

They're not cloned from ancient DNA found in fossilized mosquitoes and they're not from whatever island Godzilla hailed from. Deluxe Triassic Triops is an ancient creature that has been around far longer than most organisms on this planet.

The only other animal you're likely to find that's been around as long is the alligator and, well... good luck with that. But if you want an ancient creature to tend to that won't tear you to pieces, you want Deluxe Triassic Triops!
