Toy Dinosaur Figurine – How It’s Made

From the Science Channel‘s How It’s Made tv show, watch how artisans create detailed toy figurines: from drawings, to computer software, to 3D printed and hand-carved sculptures, to the casting of silicone, plaster, and zinc molds. Follow that process up with hand-painting and airbrushing.

This Schleich T-Rex was on the birthday cake of our youngest when she was three, and continues to be one of her favorite toys. In 2014, we recommended it in the TKSST Gift Guide along with Schleich‘s other popular toy figures.
