Our Famous T Rex Toy - See Him On CBeebies Mr Tumble

When you have something as popular as our T Rex dinosaur toy then its not surprising he gets noticed and then used by people in the media, however this year hes hit the big time! Our t Rex is in Mr Tumble!

Our T Rex dinosaur toy is the reason we got in to dinosaurs in the first place and has remained one of most popular toys since we first designed him. What's not to love about a knitted t rex dinosaur toy when they are so bright, tactile and also so cuddly?


When we first started to develop knitted toys the knitted T Rex was one of the very first toys we made, but he was so popular he was quickly followed by other knitted dinosaurs toys.

In fact our T Rex was joined by more fabulous dinosaur toys in the shape of a triceratops dinosaur toy, a diplodocus dinosaur toy and even a Woolly Mammoth.
They were so successful that we added dinosaur rattles and since it was obvious that dinosaur love started young we introduced a range of baby dinosaur toys. Our dinosaur toys make great gifts for kids and we have even seen them used as a rather unique christening gift!

With their growing popularity we shouldn't have been surprised to see our knitted T Rex dinosaur toy pop up on the TV being used in adverts for people as diverse as a bank right through to Merlin theme parks, but it gives us a real thrill to see him on the telly.

But this week my neighbours' 5 year old son rushed round to tell me that our T Rex is in Mr Tumble. We are thrilled! Its a great programme and we could be more happy that they chose our knitted T Rex dinosaur toy to feature.


Mr Tumble uses sign language in a programme designed to help children learn to develop speech and communication skills so we think its a great fit for our knitted toys. Wonder if they want a Diplodocus too? All our dinosaurs love to watch the programme with T Rex!

If you see any of our dinosaur toys featured anywhere please let us know as we are genuinely excited to see them!
