Realistic Dino Skull Adds a "Bite" of Fun to an Outdoor Living Space

  • Created a play climber to add distinctive fun to a new home
  • Designed the skull based on a real T-rex skeleton
  • Constructed the climber using material resistant to California weather, fire & natural disasters


Real estate developer Pardee Homes was building a Gen Smart Suite in the Meadow Ridge neighborhood of their Canyon Hills development. The GenSmart homes are designed to allow multiple generations to visit, live, and play together. To put a unique spin on the outdoor living space, the developer chose to add a dino-themed climber.


We built a DinoBonz T-Rex Skull Climber that spans 5’ long and stands more than 3’ tall. Modeled from a real dinosaur skull, we crafted this replica from glass fiber reinforced concrete (GFRC), a material so strong and versatile that is also known as smart concrete. It’s environmentally friendly and resistant to fire and the California weather. GFRC doesn’t require special maintenance either, giving the home owners more time to enjoy their outdoor space. Since the replica is filled in, the climber is a safe structure where kids can play and imagine.


The T-Rex Skull Climber adds distinctive touch to the new home model. Whether the home owners are hosting a book club meeting or braving a tween sleepover, the Dino Bonz Climber will be a fun focal point.
