2nd Year in a Row - Safari Ltd® Wins Dinosaur of the Year

Miami Lakes, FL, December 15, 2014 – Safari Ltd®, a family-owned manufacturer and worldwide distributor of museum-quality, educational toys, is excited to announce that for the second year in a row, Prehistoric Times magazine has awarded Safari Ltd® with the award for Dinosaur of the Year.

Prehistoric Times magazine is a publication that caters to both retail stores and individual dinosaur enthusiasts. Their staff and retailers chose our Wild Safari® Monolophosaurus as the 2014 Dinosaur of the Year. There was an abundance of reasons for why the staff and retailers chose this figure as the winner according to editorialist, Randy Knol.

“Not only does the figure fit into the 1/40 scale that collectors like, but it has accurate anatomical features, highlighted by realistic paint so kids can recognize the species while they play.” Randy Knol, editorialist for Prehistoric Times.

Safari Ltd® is a third-generation, educational toy company whose mission is to teach children the importance of nature and its conservation through the joy of play.
