Wordless/Wordful Wednesday – The Hatching of a Dinosaur Egg

When we visited the Museum of Natural History in Iowa, we of course had to make a stop in the gift shop to see what kind of dinosaur loot they had.  A hatching dinosaur egg was of course a must:

These things are pretty cool – you put them in warmish water and wait for the dinosaur to bust out of the shell.  Princess Nagger wanted to get it started right away:

Let the hatching begin:

Princess Nagger decided it was time to let her newly acquired Dinosaur Friends watch the hatching process.  You know, an educational experience:

Even the new Pteranodon ring had to check things out:

It’s hard to be patient waiting for progress (and not pick at the shell to speed up the hatching process):Unassisted Progress:Meet Demetri the Dimetrodon:

Yes, she named it and yes, I had to ask her what kind of dinosaur it was because I had no clue.  She saw me putting this post together last night, so she decided it was time to drop him in the drink again to make him grow (they can be regrown over and over).  So Demetri is currently expanding his size:

I have a feeling Santa will be bringing a few of these this year since Princess Nagger loves them, and they enable hours of fun.

  1. LOL! You just can’t beat the miracle of life – it’s not something a plastic dinosaur would want to miss!
    Best part of all? DO NOT SWALLOW! 🙂

  2. Very cool. My kids never had anything like that. Too fun!

    BTW, I love the new name and the new look. (Possibly not all that new as I haven’t been around for awhile. ) 🙂

  3. Thanks for stopping by – I am now following.

    My 5 year old got one of these for his birthday – he LOVED it. He is so into dinosaurs right now so it was perfect.
