13 of the Best T-Rex Products
It all started with T-Rex Hates Pushups. Or was it T-Rex Hates High-Fives? Or maybe it goes all the way back to Jurassic Park. However it began, T-Rex has stormed onto the pop culture and related product scene like, well, a ravenous carnivorous dinosaur on a rampage.
And he's left a slew of T-Rex-themed products in his wake. Here are 13 of the best.
Note: products are priced as they were at printing. Pricing, and availability, are subject to change.
1" Pet T-Rex Terrarium with Adoption Certificate
Honey, I shrunk the T-Rex! The perfect "pet" for your home or office, this 1" T-Rex roams around and wreaks havoc inside a terrarium - a proportionately tiny terrarium, at 2" x 2" x 2.5". It's physically small enough to take anywhere, but figuratively big enough to make a lasting impression on all who see it.
Especially if you need a gift for a kid who keeps begging for some kind of exotic reptile - iguanas and bearded dragons got nothing on T-Rex.
Giant Ride-On T-Rex Costume
Cretaceous Period meets the Wild, Wild West in this ride-on T-Rex costume, one of the most outstanding Halloween costumes, not to mention one of the most outstanding mixed metaphors, I've ever seen.
What Now Bitch? T-Rex Coffee Mug
The expression of pure joy on the What Now Bitch? T-Rex's face probably brings me more joy than the mug's sentiment itself.
But a T-Rex roaring, "What now bitch?" while holding a set of grabbers like the ones I gave my Nana when she got too old to reach high or bend low still brings me a good amount of joy on its own.
Pushups and high-fives all around!
T-Rex Folding Knife
Caution: both ends bite. Metal Worn's T-Rex Folding Knife don't need no stinkin' proportionately-sized arms to do pushups or give high-fives. He don't need no stinkin' arms at all! With a 3.25" 440C stainless steel "tail" heat treated to 60~62HRC, this custom beast of a design is doing just fine without all your stupid extra appendages getting in the way.
T-Rex Trailer Hitch Cover
When the hitched up campers, boats, and stripper poles are put away, it's T-Rex's turn to play. The T-Rex Trailer Hitch Cover fits into any standard 2 x 2 hitch receiver to add some Cretaceous personality to your truck or SUV.
T-Rex Adult Air-Blown Costume
You have some T-Rex decisions to make: do you want the costume with a built-in sound box in the gloves, or do you want to make your own Tyrannosaurus sounds? This fan-and-battery-operated suit comes in both versions, as well as Teen and Plus sizes.
Dino Case - T-Rex Lunch Box & Carrier
No one will steal your lunch - or your maker tools, or your stash - ever again with T-Rex guarding it. The Dino Case from Suck UK uses the impenetrable strength of beastly prehistoric jaw to protect your most beloved PB&Js.
OK, a black nylon and elastic strap closure helps out a little too.
T-Rex Skull Shower Head
He may be dead and decomposed, but that doesn't mean T-Rex isn't still capable of spewing the stink off you. By way of nine saliva jets inside his mouth, no less!
The next time you're looking for a gift for a geek, ask him what size shower pipe he has in his bathroom. If it's a standard 1/2", you've got a winner, winner Cretaceous dinner with the T-Rex Showerhead.
T-Rex Bottle Opener
T-Rex, no, please! Don't eat my face! Eat...eat...eat this bottle of Bud Light Lime! ... No dude, that's just the cap, you gotta get the stuff in - no? You don't want it? OK, OK, that's cool - what, you want-? You want another bottle cap?
You're pretty good at that, T-Rex? Want a job?
I Could Eat a T-Rex Spaghetti Measurer
Whether you're hungry enough to eat a T-Rex, or just need a quick coupla bites of the child from the family he's terrorizing, this clever kitchen tool will measure out the precise amount of meaty flesh you need to achieve satiation. Meaty flesh, in this case, being spaghetti noodles.
The I Could Eat a T-Rex spaghetti measurer adds a fun twist to portioning pasta, plus keeps the process much simpler than dragging out a scale or holding your noodles up to serving size photos on the Internet. The acrylic tool contains measurement slots for 4 different portions. A T-Rex full of raw spaghetti equates to 400 grams, or enough for 4 people. A Papa victim represents 130 grams of pasta, a man-sized portion, while the Mama victim is 100 grams, and Jr. victim 65 grams, the recommended serving sizes for ladies and kiddos.
Your Stick Figure Family Was Delicious Decal
Some people like to show off their perfect little families with stick figure decals splayed across their cars' rear windows. And other people - such as, for example, the people who read the posts from these pages, methinks - like to express their disdain for these braggarts with decals of a Tyrannosaurus Rex devouring their stupid line-drawn kin. Mmmm, says T-Rex. Your stick figure family was delicious.
T-Rex Pool Float
In a strange cinematic and evolutionary twist, the next Jurassic Park sequel will feature a water-faring T-Rex whose genetically modified donut center will keep him afloat, but whose unmodified arms will prevent him from swimming any faster than the slowest member of a seniors water aerobics class. They'll call it a built-in safety feature for the humans!
Also, if you can manage to jump into or rise up from under the dinosaur dead-donut-center, he'll let you ride him!
Approach from the front, sides, or back, or miss the target though and, as per usual, he'll eat you.
T-Rex Dinosaur Planter
T-Rex don't eat no stinkin' plants! ... Which is what makes him such a great planter. No chance he'll eat your succulents or asparagus fern the moment you turn your head like Triceratops.
