Earlier this year, Harbourfront Centre was invaded by a Mesozoic menagerie at the Jurassic Jamboree. Welcoming the crowds was a life-sized Tyrannosaurus Rex, as well as a range of dinosaur merchandise.
The Fossil Collector was delighted to partner with production company Mr Bottle’s Kids Party to loan authentic fossil specimens to the event. These included a complete, two-foot long dromaeosaur raptor, various dinosaur eggs, an allosaurus jaw, claw, and footprint, as well as various other dinosaur bones, teeth, and horns.
This was followed by Fossil Collectors Calvin and Han giving a talk and letting the kids handle actual many fossils up close. The children had a wonderful time learning about prehistoric life, and especially enjoyed donning paleontologist vests and had fun digging fossils out of a huge sandpit.
“Calvin is really THE expert in dinosaurs. It was a privilege to witness his knowledge, professionalism and passion about dinosaurs,” said Mr Wee Kien Meng, Fun Director, Mr Bottle’s Kids Party.
“My team and I have learnt so much in our interaction with him during the six-day event, Jurassic Jamboree at Harbourfront Centre,” he said.
