Dinosaurs are famous, at least in part, for being some of the largest animals ever to have evolved, but a new set of models called “Tinysaurs” are taking them in the opposite direction.
Available through Makers Market, the minuscule oak tag paper models come in tiny metal tins complete with glue and tweezers to help you keep them together. They are certainly more challenging than the larger wooden model kits I remember from my youth, and should you successfully assemble a Triceratops, Stegosaurus, Tyrannosaurus, or (the only non-dinosaur of the group) mammoth you can proudly display your accomplishment under a mini glass dome.
