Schleich’s famed giant T-Rex gets golden new look for Smyths Toys special this autumn

Shuffle aside giant Schleich T-Rex, you’re about to be outshone, by a spectacular gold-painted version of the beast that will now be stomping into Smyths Toys Superstores across the UK.

Yes, the toy maker’s attention-grabbing super-sized T-Rex has been a favourite among kids and families, appearing at store openings across the UK for a number of years now, for a prehistoric display. But the monster has been updated, and its new golden look is roaming the UK this autumn.

The new-look beast will be seen at Smyths Toys superstores locations offering not just a golden photo opportunity, but the chance to win some great prizes, and the prospect of owning one of the limited edition Schleich Golden T-Rex toy figures, exclusive to Smyths.

Paul Dearlove, trade marketing manager, said: “Our giant models offer great store theatre whether it’s for a one off event or for a terrific display in-store. This is first time we have created a golden model, and we expect he will be extremely popular.”
