Stroller Days Out: Jurassic Seas at Sea Life Blackpool

SEA LIFE BLACKPOOL is launching Jurassic Seas, a new family experience that takes guests on a trip back in time, to an underwater graveyard of the great pre-historic beasts of the ocean, just in time for February half term.

Opening to the public for the first time on Saturday 13 February, Jurassic Seas invites you to walk through the skeletal remains of the once great beasts of the sea and meet the weird and wonderful creatures that have outlived the dinosaurs.

Enter the sea graveyard to learn about evolution and explore an exhibit filled with mysterious Mudskippers, Horseshoe Crabs and other unusual creatures that lived in pre-historic times.

Tickets are available now online at http://www.sealifeblackpool.com

In praise of…dinosaurs

OK ‘fess up, who can’t read the word ‘dinosaur’ without saying it in the George Pig voice… ? Nope, us neither. But there are some awesome dinos about at the moment – plenty to get your little ones roaring.

Florrie and Max’s Little Squish diplodocus tee is adorable and comes in turquoise or purple. The tee itself is made from super soft cotton and the screen print is done with eco-friendly ink, so perfect for those creatures with sensitive skins (as opposed to big scaly ones) 

(even better, they are on sale at the moment too if you’re quick…)


Dino Snores at the Natural History Museum is the coolest sleepover ever – with a night of stalking T Rex through the dark corridors and sleeping under the blue whale or watchful diplodocus…

Too scary? Just hit the gift shop and grab one of their squishy dino cushions instead…


Or want to dress a baby in head to toe triceratops? (For a trip to Granny’s, perhaps?) It’s definitely ‘a look’… HalloweenCostumes.co.uk has some fab options, including this one…
