No day out at the Natural History Museum is complete without a visit to their roaring, stomping, and generally awe-inducing animatronic T-Rex – but now, that spectacle comes with an added side of Christmas whimsy. The fearsome T-Rex has been kitted out with its own Christmas jumper, allowing even the most terrifying of apex predators to join in with the festive fun. Good to see everyone’s getting into the Christmas spirit!
Natural History Museum workers fitted the jumper this morning, and one can only suspect it was a much easier operation than trying to kit out a real T-Rex with a festive knit. Although I’d imagine that finding a Christmas jumper that big was probably half the battle… Anyway, the jumper is exceedingly on-trend, with Stegosaurus and Diplodocus patterns amongst the usual Christmas tree and snowflake designs.
Happily, if you’d like to take the rare opportunity to co-ordinate your outfit with one of history’s deadliest predators, you can! The Natural History Museum shop is selling human-sized versions of the dinosaur Christmas jumper, and giving your Christmas wardrobe a bit of bite. The jumpers are made with 100% recycled materials (including polyester from recycled plastic bottles), so you can sport it with pride whilst knowing you’ve done some good for the environment with your purchase. Plus, the chance to snap a picture next to the T-Rex in matching sweaters has to be taken, surely?
