Skelosaurz had a big week with their first appearance in a major mall just in time for Black Friday... They even made an appearance in the St. Louis Post Dispatch.

*excerpt from the article below

Janelle Becker came into her native St. Louis from Florida, where she lives now, to finally put her hand-designed leather dinosaur puzzles, Skelosaurz, on a retail shelf. The kits can be sculpted into various dinosaurs when the leather is moistened, and she’s previously sold them only online at art fairs and other events.

“This is the first time they’re just out, you know, they’re in the mall,” Becker said. “I used to always want to be in one of these interesting-type of stores that sells all those weird things.”
