Chomping Mechanical Dinosaur Costume
Get your rawr on — with a big green mechanical dinosaur costume, you build yourself! This costume crate contains everything you need to craft a spiky T. rex head, engineer a fierce felt jaw that snaps shut with the pull of a string, then add a set of matching dino claws to complete the look. Finish off your dino discovery by learning about hinges, rotary motion, and fossil detective work. Ready to dig in?
