It’s now a yearly tradition at Natural History Museum to dress up the life-size animatronic T-rex in knitted Christmas jumper for the festive season.


It wasn’t an easy task to dress up the prehistoric giant, though. The Christmas woolly measures nearly 4ft (1.2m) around the neck, 9ft 6in (2.9m) around the shoulders and over 10ft (3m) around the body and weights about 2 kilograms. The museum shared a behind-the-scenes video on their Instagram.


The jumper is 100% eco-friendly and made by a small business owner, Jack Master in Leicester, UK making sure that the pullover perfectly fits to the T-rex’s giant body and tiny arms.


The festive garment is made of 60% recycled cotton and 40% recycled polyester. The latter is sourced from recycled plastic bottles.


The T-rex is also wearing an oversized Santa hat to complete his festive outfit.


The jumper features some the museum’s most beloved dinosaur skeletons, namely Tyrannosaurus Rex, Stegosaurus, and Titanosaur.


The jumper is available in human size in the museum’s shop and online shop.

Visiting the T-rex is completely free, and no booking required.
