Geek out!, Thumbs Up

Refe and Susan Tuma devote the whole November to convincing their children that their plastic dinosaurs come to life while they sleep. They do it by posing the dinos doing various (and sometimes destructive) things in the house. Like raiding the fruit bowl…

Refe and Susan Tuma.

And why?

“…Because in the age of iPads and Netflix, we don’t want our kids to lose their sense of wonder and imagination. In a time when the answers to all the world’s questions are a web-search away, we want our kids to experience a little mystery. All it takes is some time and energy, creativity, and a few plastic dinosaurs.

“Childhood is fleeting, so let’s make sure it’s fun while it lasts.”

Hear, hear!

P.S. If you’re interested in dinosaurs used in creative ways, also take a peek at these save-the-date invitations with a hidden velociraptor!
