Hookasaur Maximize


Crochet will find a way!! 

Having learnt several important lessons from Jurassic Park, all of our Hookasaurs have been created using a combination of dino DNA and yarn; none of that pesky frog DNA that has caused so much trouble in the past! Thanks to this, not only are our dinos more docile, but at approximately* 100mm long, 80mm tall, and 60mm wide they are also the perfect size to nestle in your hand. They are all herbivorous, but do seem to have a taste for the odd sock here and there, and have also been known to savage dust bunnies. They especially like having a little nest of socks to snuggle into, but also love hugs, playing on computers, and going on adventures. They harbour a huge distrust of open, bath-like water and also of vacuum cleaners. Like many little creatures, Hookasaurs have big feelings; be sure you make 'bom, bom, bom, bom' noises when they walk to let them know you recognise their impressively huge ancestry and they will love you forever. Although they will tell you they are easy to train with the patented 'Dino Clicker' method, they are in reality easily distracted by everything. We have decided this is part of their charm. Each Hookasaur is grown to order (we take population control very seriously; our supply of socks isn't inexhaustible, after all), with an incubation period of 1 - 2 weeks.

As well as the ground-breaking work in dino genetics completed by Dr Henry Wu, this particular genus of Hookasaur couldn't have been created without the design talents of Keke from Yarn Society. Her wonderful pattern is used with her very kind permission, and can be found here should you wish to dabble in dino genetics yourself.

*All Hookasaurs measurements are approximate as it's difficult to keep them still long enough to measure them accurately. Also, due to their complex care needs, we recommend that these dinos should not be adopted by anyone under the age of 3.
