Hi Michael - Great spotlight on a unique - and local - treasure. I've never met a boy who didn't go through a dinsosaur phase, and some of us never outgrow it. Their website is pretty cool - I've bookmarked it for the next time I need to find the right birthday present. Thanks.

Hi Michael.  So how long did you take browsing in the Dinosaur Farm.  I bet even big kids would like something from there.  We need to remember to support our local business and not head directly to Wal Mart or Best Buy for every gift.  Something fun and different means so much more.

Michael - I have no doubt I'd love spending time in the Dinosaur Farm store.  Great suggestion to shop locally and to stop by the smaller, independent retailers.  It's time to shop, shop, and shop some more!!!
