The Ultimate Jurassic Park Holiday Buyer’s Guide

Rumors have been floating around for a while that the original 1993 Jurassic Park theme at Universal’s Islands of Adventure may become Jurassic World. I know it’s a terrible thought to lose such iconic iconography, but as we’ve seen at Universal Hollywood, not all great things last forever.

One day, that classic yellow and black logo may disappear from Universal’s Orlando park. When it does, ensure you have plenty of licensed collectibles for you or a loved one going through Jurassic Park withdrawal.

Thankfully, Paragon FX Group is your one-stop shop for licensed Jurassic Park prop replicas. Why settle for some Etsy knock-off when you can get as close as possible to the real things?

While the company doesn’t offer full-size dinosaurs, you could pick up some other iconic pieces from Steven Spielberg’s Summer blockbuster. We’re talking things like John Hammond’s Cane and Dennis Nedry’s sneaky Barbasol Cryogenics Canister.

You’d better be ready to spare no expense regarding those two replicas. Both items are scaled 1:1 and are not short on details.

The Cane is $349.99. Made of resin, this limited edition “museum quality” prop is topped with the memorable mosquito trapped in “amber.” Neither the amber nor the bug are real, sadly. No playing god for you, junior genetics engineers!

The Barbasol Cryo Canister is a bit more involved and slightly more pricey. For $399.99, you get a near-exact replica of the prop, complete with a removable machined aluminum centrifuge rack. The rack is loaded with various labeled vials of dino DNA.

I say it’s nearly an exact replica for one reason: it does not dispense menthol shaving cream. However, it comes with replica prop tags and an excellent display case.

Thrifty collectors looking for something under $100 could pick up a replica of Jurassic Park’s Welcome Maps, complete with a Kodak film ad!

Two types of maps are on offer: pristine or dirty and dino-tampled. Regardless of which you choose, they’re both $24.99.

The folded maps give you the island’s layout, including the various dinosaur paddocks, automated vehicle routes, and general information about Hammond’s totally safe and not at all dangerous park.
