Introducing Minmi - the star of the Art Dinouveau ‘Prehistoric Play’ collection. This engaging character offers hours of carefree and imaginative climbing fun.
This larger-than-life sculptural ‘Climbasaurus’ depicts the well-known Australian herbivore, Minmi Paravertebra. Drawing on his many years experience in paleontological reconstruction, Art Dinouveau sculptor, Alan Groves, has cleverly created a piece that is both visually striking, industry compliant and most importantly, lots of fun to climb on.
The original maquette for Minmi was created in 2005 in front of the crowds at the World Expo in Aichi, Japan. In the years that followed, as Art Dinouveau evolved from a company specialising in dinosaurs to playground sculpture specialists, the idea was hatched to create a life-size version of Minmi for playground application.
Unlike most dinosaur models and exhibits, Minmi is specifically designed for children to climb all over. The armoured scutes and scales make perfect hand grips offering children of all ages and abilities opportunities to play and interact while honing their climbing skills. Minmi is available with or without the central tunnel through the belly.
Minmi is 3.6m long x 2.2m wide and has a free height of fall of 1.5m. It is suitable for parks, schools, retail and child care environments with appropriate soft-fall surfacing. Created in fibreglass and finished in two-pack urethane, each Minmi is hand painted by Alan and can be customised upon request.
