Tremor in Space!

Tremor the dinosaur Flippable

On Saturday, two astronauts (Bob Behnken and Doug Hurley) were launched in to space aboard the SpaceX ship, Crew Dragon.

But the real star of the show was the sight of a small, sparkly dinosaur accompanying them! Tremor!

Tremor is one of the original three Flippables, the other two being Stompy and Crunch, and came in either a small or medium size.

Unexpectedly, the little dinosaur has now had a boost in fame, and is currently going for about £20-30 in the UK including postage and about $30-40 in the USA! Which I’m kicking myself for now, as I was thinking of bidding on on eBay for one last week that was going for much less and forgot to place a bid! (sigh!)

The reason for Tremor’s expedition into space was that the astronaut’s sons both had a passion for dinosaurs and collected all their dinosaur toys together so one could be picked for the launch. Tremor was the dinosaur selected and here he is!

However, Tremor’s trip to space wasn’t without reason. Plush toys are often taken into space and when they start to float, it shows the astronauts when they have reached zero-g and are experiencing weightlessness.

Do you have Tremor in your collection?
