Dina and Dino... Are they alone in dinos land ?
« on: Thursday 29 April 2010, 10:30 pm »
I have discovered some months ago these two dinos that at the beginning I thought they were dragons...  ::)

Dina and Dino from Zaft Creations in 1987 :







=> http://luluberlu.com/dhtml/home.php?action_recherche=1&id=703&fchamps%5B47%5D=&fchamps%5B1%5D=&categorie0=&fchamps%5B2%5D%5B1%5D=&fchamps%5B65%5D=554&recherche.x=102&recherche.y=28


I remember to have seen once on ebay other dinos like them but they seem to be babies (not as big as the ones pictured) and they have the body of Dino with the pink colour of Dina (or light purple)...  ???

Does anyone know something about other toys from this mysterious serie ?

How cute are those!! I adore both of them. Have added them to my wishlist. I've never come across them before.

I'll post the pics for you:

(From lulu-berlu.com)

Also, they only had two logos/trademarks registered that seemed related to these characters/line: http://www.trademarkia.com/company-max-zapf-puppen-und-spielwarenfabrik-gmbh--co-kg-779059-page-1-2

You're sure they're 1987 and not 1993?

Maybe you were thinking of the baby Darlin' Dinos or something? Or maybe Magic Kissing Dragons?

I thought they are from 1987 like it is written in the details on Luluberlu site.   :-[   Luluberlu is a famous French toy shop and I don't think they mistake on the date...  :o


I have found the photo I talk in my first post !  ;)



They seem to be babies, no ?  ???  I am sure that they are smaller than Dino and Dina pictured in other messages.  ::)

Well, I won't argue with you about the babies. :)

But does the doll/box actually say 1987? (And even if the doll says that, could it be a reused mold?)

According to the trademark site, that line was rather short-lived (about a year) which would make sense.

Also think of the early 90s... that was when the big Dinosaur craze was big (Jurassic Park) and dinosaur-like toys were made for girls as well. Think of Darlin' Dinos, Magic Kissing Dragons, Happyness: Secret of the Loch, etc.

Just a thought.

Now if the packaging says 1987, then I'll shut up. ::)

(Or maybe they renewed it then if there was some sort of company ownership change and just never made any more? Who knows?) :-P

Found some pics on ebay.de of a baby:

She definitely takes a little more after Dina!
