The video was attached to the email as a giant .wmv file.



  1. I wonder what the odds are that the first contact with aliens will involve us trying to sell stuff to each other.

  2. Hearing Return to Innocence by Enigma completely brought me back to being four years old and watching Chevy Chase, Farrah Fawcett, and JTT in the timeless family classic, Man of the House.

    Thank you, truly.

  3. Well, they got a single post at least. :)

    I tried to build one of these when I was a kid. I didn’t get very far.

  4. I got that one too!! So weird. Mine had an additional line:
    “Remark: Please refer to the exhibits maintenance repair circuit of the above steps”

  5. Is that the whole user manual? They sure want you to fiddle around with the electricity if nothing works. These hardcore Chinese don’t even care about safety it seems.

  6. “Gibson said no, pretty emphatically. He remains fascinated with Japanese culture, both then and now—but has no real interest in China.”

  7. That beats the spam I got asking for financial assistance to film a movie Bear Beer Deer Dear and then it got weird.

    Follow up on this. The BB offices need a T-Rex.

    1. If you used that as a dinosaur sex doll, you might also be interested in the M4ke ur pen1s b1gger pills, because you’ll need them. Unless you want a smaller version. In that case, your ideas intrigue me and I wish to sign up for your newsletter. Badly.

  8. Nice garden ornaments.

    But the Rex doesn’t look balanced to me. A Rex would carry more of his weight directly over his legs, not bent like that.

  9. Ha! I was going to post this this morning.

    Last night I showed it to my husband. His response, “So … you’re going to pretend that you’re NOT the kind of person who’d buy a giant, Animatronic dinosaur?”

    1. No way, it’d be fun for the first day or two, but then it’ll turn into a much louder “Big Mouth Billy Bass” and will just gather dust and tears in its “skin.”

  10. well, are you going to forward the contact details or not. Some of us here have been searching for YEARS for China dinosaur factory!

    LOL, spouses tend to know our weaknesses ;)

  11. I want the T-Rex with the seat!
    (Though the seat would probably look better if it was made to look like a leather/wood saddle.)

  12. If the T-rex with seat mount could bipedally locomote at, say 15 to 25 mph, I would love to commute on it (using back roads, of course).

    And those giant hatched eggs around 10:30 would make a great alternative to office cubicles.

  13. I’m disappointed these are 220v. I could hook into the 220v box I have in the back of the house (for the hot tub), but I would much rather have dinosaurs roaming the front yard, by the street.

  14. Wait a second… my one-man band in college was named “Chinese Dinosaur Factory.” I used to open up my act by screaming:


    And then descending into musical madness.

    These guys totally ripped me off.

  15. Come to think of it, at around 9:30 in the video, there’s footage of what appears to be a museum. I remember some time ago one of our local museums had a dinosaur exhibit that looked like those same dinosaurs. I’ll see if I can find the pictures I took and post them here so y’all can check them out.

  16. Can anyone decipher the prices of these things? They seem to all be in QQ/Q Coin values and I can’t find a conversion of QQ to $$

    1. QQ is an instant messaging service in China. The code is the QQ identifier. So you have to contact them for a price.

  17. The California Academy of Sciences in GG Park used to (maybe still does) have three velociraptors running in a pack. I really wanted to take them home.

  18. Oh no! We all revealed spammers everywhere they now know the secret to selling at stupid USA peoples, even get to BoingBoing:

    – Three photos attachment!
    – Instruction Manual!
    – Video file! ( WMV only)

    Works with dinosaur? So now try Cialis

  19. Weird, one of the first spams I ever got in the late 90s was from this company (or another Chinese dinosaur company, if there is one).
