Art Toy of the Week – Tri-Dino

I have been collecting designer toys since 2004 and this is my weekly column.  I also have other interests (I am for example the Curator of the Breyer Horses and Warne’s Observer’s Pocket Books and generally am known to add anything cute to my collection).


This week’s art toy is the adorable Tri-Dino by artist Ziqi and produced by Unbox Industries. Have you ever seen a cuter Triceratops? Adorably done in Ziqi’s style and Unbox’s excellent production in soft vinyl. Standard Tri-Dino stands 4” tall and was first released in 2018.

Tri-Dino “Granite”

This little guy has been produced in a number of colourways including glittery ones and glow in the dark figures. They retail straight from Unbox for around $75, although some colourways are sold out now and you might just have to hunt and cross fingers to find someone willing to part with them.
