The Perfect Gifts for Jurassic World Fans

By Tom Pritchard on at

After a 14 year hiatus, we finally have another Jurassic Park film ready to wow a whole new generation of dinosaur lovers. Now that you can pop down to the local cinema to purchase a ticket to Jurassic World, why not check out this great selection of dino-themed gifts, slapping that iconic logo on lunchboxes and pencil cases for you and your loved ones.

Lego Jurassic World (£21-£38)

We've all been painfully aware of the fact that most Jurassic Park games have been just dreadful, but luckily Lego games are usually pretty great. Lego Jurassic World lets you play through all four films, while throwing a variety of puzzles and challenges in your way. It's typical Lego game affair really, which, as the series' millions of players will tell you, is no bad thing at all. What sets it apart is the fact that you actually get to play as 20 different dinosaur species. Lego and playing as dinosaurs? What more could you want? [Buy it here]

Jurassic Park by Michael Crichton (£3.85)

If you're looking for a Jurassic Park themed gift, why not go for the book that kicked off the entire franchise? Everyone who's ever heard of Jurassic Park knows the rough plot of the book, but the film wasn't exactly a direct adaptation. Want to read about the aviary, or a horrifying T-Rex inclusive river ride? It's all in here. [Buy it here]

Lego Jurassic World Indominus Rex Breakout playset (£99)

Ah the Indominus Rex, the genetically engineered dinosaur that got a few people riled up about the new sequel way back when. It also seems to be the dino that causes all the problems in Jurassic World, so don't you think it deserves to be immortalised as a Danish plastic figurine? That makes this big ol' set the perfect addition to any Lego collection. It includes the infamous dino herself, four mini figures, a 'containment' compound, a helicopter, and a legofied version of the ambered mosquito. [Buy it here]

Tea Rex Mug (£10)

In the market for an amusing mug to amuse your workplace colleagues? Love dinosaurs? Don't want to admit you're living a life that uncannily resembles one of the cast of The Office?  Look no further than this 'tea rex' mug. Colourfully adorned with everyone's favourite carnivore enjoying a lovely hot mug of Britain's favourite hot drink. [Buy it here]

Jurassic World Chomping Tyrannosaurus Rex Figure (£22)

The T-Rex is one of Jurassic Park's most-loved/feared dinosaurs, and with a franchise like this there are plenty of ways that it could be turned into toys. There's no better toy to own than this lovely detailed T-Rex with realistic chomping action. Just remember not to get your finger trapped. [Buy it here]

Jurassic Park Original Soundtrack (£8.50)

One of the most amazing things about the original Jurassic Park was John Williams' incredible 16-tune soundtrack. Who can forget that awe-inspiring theme song? You certainly won't with this in your music collection. [Buy it here]

Jurassic World Teaser Poster (£10)

Way back before we saw the trailers, our first glimpse of Jurassic World was this teaser poster adorned with one of the super-intelligent velociraptors, and a sneak peak at the park in action. But it's not just about that; it's also a pretty epic-looking poster that doesn't rub the whole Jurassic World thing in your face with a huge logo. [Buy it here]

Jurassic Park Trilogy Blu-ray Boxset (£13)

So you want to see Jurassic World in the coming days? You might as well catch up on its predecessors before you do, even if the new film is only supposed to be a sequel to the original 1993 film. There's no better way to refresh your memory on all things dino than buying the trilogy on Blu-ray, even if it does mean suffering through Tea Leoni's screamtastic performance in Jurassic Park III. "ERIC! ERIC! ERIIIIIIIIC!" [Buy it here]

The Making of Jurassic Park (£3)

You may remember seeing this book's cameo in the gift shop of the first Jurassic Park film, but did you know it was actually a real book? Sadly it's not a book about how to open a dino-themed safari park, but it is about how they brought the original film to the big screen 22 years ago. You might not learn how to clone real-life dinosaurs, but you can find out how they managed to bring them to life without resorting to questionable genetic experiments. [Buy it here]

Jurassic Park T-Shirt (£12)

Let's face it. That logo is iconic, and there probably isn't a person alive who doesn't know what it's from. It's an essential buy for any Jurassic Park fan, but it's not just for the die-hards. If you like any of the Jurassic Park films, this should have a place in your wardrobe. [Buy it here]

Clever Girl Novelty Mug (£8)

Big ol' lizard probably has the brain the size of a walnut, right? That may be true of something like the brachiosaurus, but not the velociraptor. The raptors were so clever that even Robert Muldoon, the JP gamekeeper who constantly warned how intelligent and dangerous they were, fell victim to one of their traps. Now you can immortalise his final words with this mug. Provided you don't like the puntastic Tea Rex mug that is. [Buy it here]

Isla Nublar Map Poster (£13.25)

Not only is this a fairly subtle poster, the map of Isla Nublar and Las Cinco Muertes would make a fantastic addition to any wall. Sure, it's a must have for cartography fans everywhere, but it's also a great tool to have for some extra insight into the islands that the Jurassic Park dinos call home. [Buy it here]

Barbasol Cryogenics Can Prop (£156)

This one would make a great gift for fans of Jurassic Park and Dennis Nedry cosplayers alike. You can own this incredible replica of the cryogenic can used to smuggle frozen dinosaur embryos away from the park and into the hands of InGen's biggest rivals. Sadly it doesn't come with actual baby dinos, but it does come with the same removable canister from the film. [Buy it here]

Velociraptor Claw (£13.25)

We may have found out that the raptors in the film are nothing like the raptors from real life, but that doesn't make them any less awesome.With that in mind, who wouldn't want to own their very own raptor claw replica, just like Alan Grant? Now you can get one to display, or terrify annoying 12 year olds. [Buy it here]

Baltic Amber with Mosquito Fossil (£7)

Ah the ambered mosquitos. They're the real heroes of the Jurassic Park series, because without them the dinosaurs would never have been brought back from extinction. Now, just like John Hammond, you can own your very own fossilised mosquito trapped in amber. You won't be cloning any dinosaurs from it, but it's still pretty damn cool. [Buy it here]

Velociraptor-Free Workplace T-Shirt (£10.53)

Those pesky raptors are always looming in the shadows, threatening to strike at any moment. Luckily they haven't done so for millions of years, but you can never be too careful. Still, you can be proud in the fact that your life has been free from raptor attacks. So proud, in fact, that you should display it on your chest for the world to see. [Buy it here]

Laser Engraved Jurassic Park Logo (£17)

There isn't really anyway to showcase your love for Jurassic Park without this amongst your collection. Each sign is 7.5" x 5.5" x 3/4", and is handmade to order. On top of that you can opt to have a personal message engraved into the back. [Buy it here]

Replica T-Rex Tooth (£13)

If a raptor claw isn't really your thing, then maybe you'll be interested in this handmade replica of the T-Rex's tooth. Can you imagine something wandering around with a mouth full of these things? Now you can keep one of them on your mantelpiece or desk. [Buy it here]
