5" Long Archaeopteryx Dinosaur Replica
by Papo

Sometimes referred to by its German name Urvogel, which means "original" or "first" bird, the Archaeopteryx is considered to be the dinosaur that bridges the gap between non-avian feathered dinosaurs and our modern birds. The largest individuals are thought to have been about the size of a raven, gorwing to approximately 0.5m in length. Unlike modern birds, they featured sharp teeth within their jaws, as well as a long and bony tail.

Made of heavy-duty rubber, the Archaeopteryx has been painstakingly hand-painted, with an extraordinary amount of detail being sculpted and painted. It does not feature an articulated jaw like other Papo models, and is fixed in an open position.

Papo has been in the business of creating figures for almost 20 years, and maintains dedicated to producing a top of the line product which will stand the test of time, being passed from one generation of inquisitive minds to the next. Safety to them is a central priority, and something that they start looking at even in the initial design phase. All of their model figures are manufactured following strict compliance with international safety rules, are are tested by approved laboratories.
