Stinson the Dinosaur

Stinson is still lurking around Lehighton. I forewarn you, if you want to give Stinson some movement, step on the metal plates he's attached to on the ground. His upper half sways back and forth... which we weren't prepared for!

Stinson the Dinosaur

Stinson the Dinosaur is a skeletal T-rex, nine feet high and 15 feet long, and the brain-beast of Joe Bradley. A good friend of Joe's dad suffered a minor stroke, losing his ability to run his shop. The only equipment he could run was the plasma table, and Joe saw the opportunity to help find him some work. Stinson is painted bright red (the official color of stroke awareness) and 30-inch versions are available for sale, each cut on a plasma table owned by a stroke victim.
