This has pushed my "TOTAL WANT" button. I thank you, but in a few minutes, my husband sure won't.

Pretty damn cool.

I will name that stegosaurus Gustav and carry him with me wherever I go. WE WILL BE BEST FRANDS.

Pardon me, but his name is George and he's shy.

I saw these on The Daily Wh.at and told my husband I needed one. He just looked at me like I'd grown a third eye and said "You're crazy, you know that right?"

Yes, I know. That doesn't diminish the fact that I need a leetle dinosaur skeleton to put in my pocket.

*****

His name is STANLEY!! Stanley the Stegosaurus.

Those tiny paper dinosaurs are seriously cool.

I am not snarking here, because I really like this and I'm glad you posted it, but I have just realized that although tiny dinosaurs in tiny bottles are all well and good, they are not quite pushing all my inner geek buttons.

What I really want, no, what I absolutely need, right now, is a regular-sized bottle (the kind you build ships in) with an entire small-scale paleolithic world full of tiny dinosaurs and miniature volcanoes.

Oh, yeah.

And if someone could find a way to make nearly-visible little pteranodons appear to fly in the clear blue, cloudless sky, over the minuscule volcanoes (which naturally are erupting with roiling masses of red-orange-golden lava running down the charred and pitted sides), that would be SWEET.

Thank you.

Bastard halibuts are bottom of the sea in a tiny bottle.

I didn't know that was the actual name of a fish. I just thought this guy really disliked halibut for some reason.

Misha, I think I love you.

I like the cut of your jib, misha. Someone needs to make this happen.

(or just buy me the tiny stegosaurus. But I'd rather they make misha's thing)

Heh. I assumed "bastard halibut" was Engrish. More fool me.

I want a tiny katamari in a tiny bottle.

Brings to mind Willard Wigan's Miniature Sculptures.

I wasn't really impressed at first, but then I read that these are all SUPER tiny.

Anyone who likes this might also like this, which I think is a lot more interesting.

Aaah, blaneyphoto, I love the tiny bicyclist consulting his tiny map (photo #5).
