- About Us
Dan's Dinosaurs was established in 2009 as a small, US-owned business that specializes in paleontological collectibles. Available products range from educational figures to high-end models and fossil replicas. Our primary goal is to provide educational products and museum-quality replicas worldwide. Our products are sold both locally and internationally. Dan's Dinosaurs regularly offers financial support to educational public television, local museums and academic institutions, as well as nonprofit organizations such as the SPCA. We constantly strive to conduct business practices that are environmentally sound and academically relevant. Our current list of brand suppliers and distributors include Safari Ltd in the United States, Papo in France, CollectA in the United Kingdom, Favorite of Japan, Sideshow Collectibles in the United States, as well as many independent artists and businesses who sell their work in Dan's Dinosaurs. Since opening shop, we have collaborated with a number of prestigious organizations, including National Geographic, ABC News, Pixar/Disney (The Good Dinosaur) and Universal (Jurassic World). In 2012, the Dan's Dinosaurs Exclusive series made its debut with regular releases of high-quality models not available anywhere else in the world. Further expansions to the store inventory came shortly thereafter, featuring major licenses such as DC, Marvel, and other iconic popular culture brands. In 2015, Dan's Dinosaurs opened a brick and mortar storefront in Mayfield, Kentucky. The shop continues to offer an outstanding selection of premium collectibles, all within a small-town environment where personal service comes first.
A note from Dan:
Since their discovery, dinosaurs have been an endless source of wonder and fascination for people from all walks of life. Like many dinosaur enthusiasts, I wanted a store that carried all the dinosaur products I wanted in one place. Since I couldn't find such a place, I created one. Dan's Dinosaurs specializes in the highest quality dinosaur merchandise, always with an eye toward value, scientific accuracy, unique artistry, and customer service. We offer realistic wildlife replicas of prehistoric species, as well as pop culture and educational products that promote the scientific study of the natural world. While some shops seem to cater mainly to children, Dan's Dinosaurs was crafted with a mature design aesthetic. The extensive selection of resin model kits and original artwork exemplifies the distinguished quality of the shop, while the personal level of service ensures a lasting relationship with all visitors. From the youngest of collectors to the most discriminating of academics, Dan's Dinosaurs has something for everyone. The integration of social media ensures a highly interactive community experience, where groundbreaking paleontological studies are discussed, and individual artwork and ideas are shared freely. We welcome everyone to come and browse the full range of items we offer, even if you don't make a purchase. Who knows? You just might learn something!
If you have comments or suggestions, or would like to request an item that you don't see in our store, we would love to hear from you. Send an e-mail, and we will respond as soon as possible. Thanks for visiting!
