Het was altijd al Sid's droom om zoiets te maken:One of my earliest memories as a kid is going to the fair where they had these cool dinosaur-making machines. You would put in a coin, the machine would buzz and squirt some waxy plastic into a mold, and a minute later a still-warm dinosaur would pop out. Now, you could buy a bag with all ten dinosaurs already finished, but I insisted on going around and popping my quarter into every machine to watch each one being made. Even then I was taken with the incredible variety of dinosaurs; one had pointy horns, another a spiky tail, an amazingly long neck, or some nasty looking teeth. After hitting my dad with a barrage of questions, I was amazed to learn that these creatures were real and actually existed millions of years ago. Not quite knowing what a million years was, I figured I had just missed them!
