T-Rex Playground Dinosaur Dig
NOTICE: Unfortunately, this item is temporarily unavailable for purchase due to damage to the fossil mold. As our Dino Digs are made to order using molds cast from the actual dinosaur bone fossils, we will be unable to offer this product until the issue has been corrected. We apologize for any inconvenience and hope to be able to offer this product again soon.
T-Rex (meaning “Tyrant lizard king”) was one of the world’s largest meat-eating dinosaurs at 40 feet long, 15 feet high, and weighing 5 to 7 tons.
T-Rex roamed the earth 68 to 65 million years ago and was known for its large, powerful jaws and fearsome look. Interestingly, for such a large animal, the hands and arms, though powerful, were quite small.
This T-Rex dig was cast off the second most complete T-Rex specimen in the world. This is the T-Rex on display at the Chicago museum.
Bury this skeleton under sand and watch children be amazed as they uncover this huge life-size T-Rex!
Model #: SA-CC038
Dimensions: 36′ long (11.0m) x 14′ (4.3m)
Age Range: 2 to 12 years
Fall Height: None. The T-Rex is designed to be buried in sand so children’s feet will remain in constant contact with the ground. The image above shows the T-Rex uncovered for display purposes.
Please note that a sand pit is required to bury the T-Rex so children can dig it up.

Dino Climbers and Digs
Cast from Real Museum Dinosaurs! Get ready for the next generation of paleontologists.
Our dig sites and climbers are an irresistible draw for children into parks, school playgrounds and museums. Children can excavate their very own dinosaur skeleton or venture out into the badlands and make important dinosaur fossil discovery practically in their very own backyard.
Our dig sites and climbers focus on children 5-12 years old. We offer scientifically accurate casts of dinosaurs that are displayed in museums throughout the world. Not all towns have world class museums and not all children have access to the wonders beyond a museum’s doors but now, every village, town or city can have a world class dinosaur skeleton right in their local playground.
Durable outdoor signage is offered, at an additional cost, of the specimen and provides an explanation as to where the skeleton was originally found and the importance of the skeleton to the science of paleontology.
The digs are cast in durable fiberglass reinforced concrete and color is imbedded into the cast to ensure that they will never fade or breakdown. On larger dinosaur digs sectional pieces are provided to ease and help the installation process.
Sectional panel casts are constructed of durable fiberglass reinforced concrete and have F44.5 in Ferrule inserts that accept 0.5in bolts that can be embedded into concrete slabs or footings.
All Dino digs and climbers are designed to comply with CSA and ASTM playground standards.
