A Dinosaur Expert Critiques Dinosaur Toys

Columbia University professor of paleontology Dr. Paul Olsen knows a lot about dinosaurs -real dinosaurs.

Well, of course, no one expects that purple thing named Barney to represent the fossil record, but toys that aim for more authenticity are not keeping up with the research. Not by a long shot.
