PANOSH Dinosaurs 070705
Panosh Toys ( probably PANOSH Toys of New Jersey) sold a series of 48 small figures made in a rubbery plastic material made in Macau. The quality of the figures declined over time. The originals are high lighted with white florescence paint. Later figures are not high lighted and come is very bright greens, yellows, pink and blue. Some of the figures are very well designed and make excellent custom projects. A personal favorite.
Most of the above are the original with glow in the dark high lites. The exceptions being the yellow Homocephale #21 and the Light Green Pteranodon in the egg to back right.
Later electric colored series courtesy of Rick Fulton. As you can see many of these figure are mismolded and need to have flash trimmed compared to the original release. Furthest left is an orange sauropod #11 with a Flintstones style rider. Just above it is a pink Sphenocdon. The yellow looks like Saurolophus and the Green Ouranosaurus. I make out Protoceratops, Euplocephalus, Oviraptor, Diatryma, Camarasaurus in the right corner. Also a Struthiomimus, Eryops, along with various other theropods and sauropods.
While no names are associated with the figures each is stamped with a number 1 - 48 and PANOSH. Many were sold in boxed sets of 24 or 48 with line drawings of each figure identified by its number. Later they were sold in eggs with a black oily substance as tar pit dinosaurs.
