What were the dinosaurs called from the 90s at Toys R’ Us?
They are plush…come in different kinds…all have the same eyes (two white buttons connected to one another, both have black center dots)….have a squeaker inside that makes them make a moaning/squeaking noise if you squeeze them. I got mine circa 1993. The most common ones I saw were the ones that looked like Barney (purple with green spots on back; t-rex) and the yellow one..maybe triceratops? I don’t know other kinds of dinosaurs.
They were made by fisher price. I don’t believe they had a name but the style is known as “puffalump”
I just went through several pages of ebay. Your welcome.

“Authentic” dinosaur sounds???
I was in Toys‘R‘Us the other day, and I saw a display with some toy Dinosaurs. The boxes said “authentic sound” on them, and when you pressed the button it made a “roar” sound.
Did I miss something? LOL!!! Did we go back in time and record Dinosaur calls?
Same thing goes for their color , how do we know dino’s were green or shades of gray for all we know they could have been blue with pinks spots……….
Where can I buy a Marionette?
Not a human one, but like a cute animal. Or a dinosaur!? Or a monster?
Something cute and stuff. I used to have a Siamese one when I was little, and I LOVED it.
Please no Toys R Us, we don’t have those around here.
Christmas and in law etiquette?
My sister in law has three very spoiled children. They are well loved and want for not, but have every single possible toy or thing they could ever want in life.
At Christmas, she allows her children ages 6, 4, and 1.5, to rush at you and literally not allow you to open your own gift. They tear at the paper and open it for you, sometimes before you have a chance to even pick the package up. This is awful when the gift is fragile, you are literally juggling with their hands to prevent it falling just in case. I might also add that this occurs at birthdays, where they also blow your candles out for you. You don’t have a choice, they just do it.
As I’ve mentioned the kids have everything, so when it’s their birthday or it’s Christmas, my husband and I agonize (we are childless) in Toys R Us for hours over what to get for each one. Last year we thought we found the most unique present only to find out Santa already brought him that moving talking dinosaur. So, we put time, thought, heart, and money in to trying to make his nieces and nephews like their gifts and smile.
I cannot remember, on any birthday or Christmas, these kids ever once thanking ANYONE for a present. Ever. They don’t thank their parents. They don’t thank their grandparents. They don’t thank friends. They don’t thank us. And their parents either are too caught up in the whirlwind of their hyperactivity or just don’t bother to make the kids use manners. Usually after the party, the parents themselves will thank us, but they don’t pass that value on to their kids it would seem.
How do I handle this? I usually just bite my tongue year after year, but I was brought up to not only say thank you but go over and hug the family member who gave me a present. I learned about the thought and meaning of the gift giving no matter what the occasion. So I am somewhat insulted when I get just the right toy (at least according to their mom) and they tear open the gift wrap and run away to go attack someone else’s present (or mine) and forget about it.
Would it be so rude of me to simply smile and say “You’re welcome, Johnny!” over the chaos in absence of the thank you, or should I just let it go?
I think you should definitely insist on a thank you. My aunt taught me to say “Thank you” every time I opened a present when I was a kid and I never found it offensive and neither did my parents. You can also say “What do you say?” and thank you should be the proper response.
