I’ve collected dinosaurs since my parents gave me my first dinosaur book as a small child. What prompted them to buy me dinosaur books when I was a kindergartner, I will never know, but I was instantly hooked. Other little girls were playing with baby dolls and Barbies, while I was playing in the mud and dirt with my beloved dinos. I have kept most of them, but a few got lost along the way(mostly buried in backyards by accident) and a few have been packed away and I have yet to find them.
At a Target store the other day I picked up a dollar bag of brightly colored, quite detailed little hard plastic dinosaurs, and doggone if they don’t almost exactly resemble the old Marx molded dinosaur toys. of my youth.
