‘Tis the season for celebration. And all creatures, great and small, should get to partake in the festivities. And one very great one has got out their Jurassic jumper, just in time for the holidays. London’s Natural History Museum has dressed its animatronic Tyrannosaurus Rex in its very own Christmas sweater.
The museum shares:
Our animatronic T. rex is getting into the Christmas spirit. It’s been kitted out in its very own theropod-size seasonal sweater, made from 100% recycled materials.
A joyous dino, who also cares about the environment? We 100 percent needed this holiday cheer. The sweater, of course, had to be custom-made. Because how else would the King of the Dinosaurs get his little arms in? The sweater was designed by the brand British Christmas Jumpers. And the good news is you can match your favorite sweater-clad dinosaur. Just pre-order an adult-sized version of the sweater from the Natural History Museum’s online shop. Happily, the sweater also comes in children’s sizes.
Here’s more about the design:
The navy, red, green, and white pattern features snowflakes, fir trees – and everyone’s favourite dinosaurs: Triceratops, Stegosaurus, T. rex and Diplodocus. Even the Museum’s famous Hans Sloane nautilus shell appears along the hem and cuffs.
Now, I know what you’re thinking. Doesn’t the T. Rex eat Triceratops? Well, it did. But the good news is, it’s Christmas, and everyone has called a cease-fire. That’s how this magical season works, right? And who doesn’t love a little bit of dark humor in with the holidays?
Now, all we need is to get the T.Rex its very own Christmas tree. And invite it to sing some Christmas carols. Like those classics, Growling Night and Jingle Bell Mesozoic Rock. But let’s leave Christmas stars, or any other mentions of outer space out of it. We wouldn’t want our Christmas sweater-wearing T. rex, or any of his dinosaur friends, to have a blue Christmas.
