Giant Schleich dinosaur finds home in Dublin

Toy firm Schleich is supporting Dublin’s department store Arnotts, with a giant Schleich Dinosaur at the entrance to its refurbished toy area.

The Schleich T-Rex, which stands 2.2 metres high and is 4.5 metres wide, marks the opening of the revamped toy department to the public.

Customers will also get the chance to enter a competition to name the giant dinosaur and win the new Schleich Giant Volcano play-set.

“We’re so pleased with the giant T-Rex in the new toy department at Arnotts. He makes a great attraction in the store and will also raise awareness of the Schleich brand with visitors from far and wide,” said Jeremy Robinson, country manager at Schleich UK.

“This further adds to the support for the dinosaur range following our large in-store dinosaur hunt activity with retailers across the UK this summer.”
