A large herbivorous “duck-billed” dinosaur. The name comes from the Greek “μαία” and the feminine form of the Latin saurus, it means “good mother reptile” or “good mother lizard”.
Does you child love dinosaurs?
Miss M, AKA Minisaurus, the #littledinosauraficionado, fell in love with dinosaurs before she turned 2. She quickly astounded her kindergarten teachers when she could recite facts about her favourite dinosaurs and name all the ones they had (correctly). She wanted a paleontologist Barbie for Christmas when she was 3 years old. We’ve been to many parks and museums to see the dinosaurs and hunted the internet for dinosaur recipes and craft and activity ideas.
What did we learn?
There is a lot of dinosaur stuff out there. Some fellow-dino Mums are very creative and I know their little dinosaurs love them for it.
But it is ALL. OVER. THE. PLACE.
We want Mrs Maiasaura to be a place where you can find it all. ALL. IN. ONE. PLACE! All dinosaurs, all the time!

A Mama and Minisaurus Venture
And yes, that is a real “we”, not just a royal one. Minisaurus is helping Mamasaurus with this venture.
When she is not building dinosaur zoos, photographing dinosaur footprints or playing doctor to some sick dinosaurs, Minisaurus is working on her “dinosaur blog”. We decided to turn her imaginary blog into a reality!
Minisaurus will provide her valuable feedback on the museums and parks we review, tackle all the craft projects and activities and try all the dinosaur-themed food.
She has declared that she will happily have another dinosaur birthday party so that we can try out some party ideas and if I don’t want that, Brachie (her toy Brachiosaurus) has a birthday coming up.
She will even take photos! I just have to work on the tech side of things and help with spelling.
I guess that is what all good Mamasaurus’ do.
