My random Christmas shopping excursions across the globe came across this site.

They ship internationally - one would think so looking at some of the prices.  biggrin.gif The link is to their 'extraordinary' stuff though.  I really want the Triceratops.  He would look cool in our front paddock.

What a great website.
I think the prices are reasonable considering the awesomeness of the items. I want the remote controlled Eagle. (since the local council wont let me keep my own eagle - something about fluffy white dogs and pet rabbits, bah)

I'm just rung them and the operator was very helpful (and truthful).  She said they only ship to Australia using UPS international which sadly makes shipping very, very expensive.

Oh well...

I just tested the shipping.  I added the Room Tidy Pickup Robot to my cart (DS needs all the help he can get) which was $69.95 and shipping came up as $94.95.  Ridiculous.

I backed out.

A cheaper option for those wanting a dinosaur can be found at some garden statue type places ( No idea what to call them)

There is one in Townsville and they had the coolest big dinosaurs. Must be others around who do them?
