Whether you're decorating a nursery or upgrading to a big kid room , it can be challenging to pick a theme. TV show characters and mythical creatures can go in and out of style, but there's one obsession that's endured generation after generation–dinosaurs.
In fact, it was my childhood bedroom theme of choice way back in the 1980's and one I revisited with my own kiddos three decades later. It's no surprise dinosaurs captivate kids' imagination. After all, they're giant, mysterious, thrilling and even a little bit scary. (There's even science that suggests their dinosaur obsession could benefit their brain!)
Dinosaurs make for some pretty awesome decor. We've rounded up some of our favorite pieces of dinosaur room decor to create the ultimate nursery or bedroom for your dino-loving little one. Shop them below!
