Add a little history to your bracelet with Dino the funky little dinosaur!

My kind friends at Pandora gifted me the adorable little Dino the Dinosaur (798123) charm from the recent Pre-Autumn 2019 Collection. Dino is the latest character to join the Pandora Friends. Other chums from the upcoming Autumn 2019 Collection include Pippo the Flying Pig, Nino the Hedgehog and Boo the Ghost.

Like the other Pandora Friends the Dino the Dinosaur (798123) charm is highly polished. Dark oxidisation fills the line details around Dino’s eyes, nose, mouth and belly.

Based on the terrifying T-Rex, Dino has dinky little arms and stands on his hind legs. Rounded spikes run downwards toward Dino’s pointy tail. Similar to a Tyrannosaurus Rex, Dino has a huge rectangular shaped head. However unlike the prehistoric dinosaur, sweet Dino is friendly and smiling!

All of the Pandora Friends characters feature a heart. Some like Bella Bot (797141EN160) and Bobby Bot Dog (797551EN12) have a large rounded heart on their chest. Whereas the heart detail is a little more hidden on other Pandora Friends. Look beneath the Dino the Dinosaur charm to discover his tiny heart shaped feet! The standard Pandora ‘S925 ALE’ hallmark is also engraved between his legs.

Although the Dino the Dinosaur charm is quite weighty, it is a non threaded charm and slips easily onto a bracelet.

Style 1: You’ve Got A Friend in Me

“What if Andy gets another dinosaur? A mean one? I just don’t think I can take that kind of rejection!


Rex, Toy Story

Mr. Potato Head: I say we stack ourselves up, push the intercom and pretend we’re delivering a pizza.

Hamm: How about a ham sandwich? With fries and a hotdog?

Rex: What about me?

Hamm: Ah, you can be the toy that comes with the meal.


Toy Story 2

“I can’t look. Could somebody please cover my eyes?”


Rex, Toy Story 2

In my first styling, ‘You’ve Got A Friend In Me’, Dino the Dinosaur plays the part of Rex from Disney’s Toy Story. Set on the Pandora Disney Sparkling Mickey Moments (590731CZ) bracelet this design is loosely based on the hit movie. Buzz (798042CZR), Woody (798041ENMX) and Jessie (798048CCZ) would be excellent additions and I may add them to my Pandora collection in the future.

In the meantime the cute Disney Parks Duffy charm acts as sweet smelling Lotso Bear. Bruno the Unicorn (797609) is a fitting double for Buttercup, while my favourite Toy Story character, the Alien (798045EN82) plays himself. Part of Toy Story 4 is set in a fairground which is represented with the glittering Ferris Wheel (797199NLCMX) and Disney Parks Carousel charms. The trademark Toy Story colours are illustrated with Minnie’s Signature Look (791635), Belle’s Signature Colour (791643) and the Starry Night Sky (791662CZ) Murano charms.

Style 2: Friends Don’t Go Extinct

“A T-Rex has short arms so that everything it holds is close to its heart.”

“If history repeats itself I am so getting a dinosaur.”

“My arms are little but my hugs are big.”

Displayed on the beautiful Pandora Rose Heart Clasp Bracelet (580719) is my collection of Pandora Friends. New addition Dino the Dinosaur nestles next to the Pandora Rose (787141EN160) and silver Bella Bot (797141EN160) sisters and cute Theodore Bear (767236) gleams on the other side. Cosmo Tommy (797561CZ) and the Limited Edition Floral Bella Bot (797856) play with Bruno (797609) and Bobby Dog (797551EN12). The delicate Magnolia Bloom (792087PCZ) charm and Clips (792078PCZ) look pretty combined with the blushing Pandora Rose charms that scatter through the design.

My verdict on the Pandora Dino the Dinosaur Charm? It’s rexcellent!

Summary

Like the other Pandora Friends, Dino is super cute. Priced at £30 he is also good value. However he dropped some points on wow factor as he is quite understated. All together I am happy to have him join my Pandora Friends.

In the UK the Pandora Dino the Dinosaur (798123) charm is £30 and is available from the UK Pandora eStore.

What is the “D” in some of the pictures? Is that Pandora or just part of the photo opp?

Hi Sara,

Thanks for your comment. D is for Dora – that’s me. It is a real D but is not made by Pandora. I use it a real life water mark to show the pictures are my own. I see my pics popping up on eBay and fake shopping sites all the time.

Have a great day,
Dora

Hi Dora, is there any group or maybe on Facebook where it’s possible to sell authentic Pandora charms?

Hi Jeje,

Thanks for your comment. While I cannot endorse any particular group, I have used a Pandora’s Angels on Facebook. They keep a list of feedback on sellers to protect their members.

Which pieces do you have for sale, I am always interested to have a first look.

Have a great day,

Dora
