Natural History Museum Shop - Personalised T-Shirt

One of the many things I love about being a blogger is finding out about brands, companies or shops that I haven't heard of before. When it comes to buying presents I do like to find unique and special presents and I spend lots of time browsing through google especially around Christmas and birthdays.


I recently came across The Naturall History Museum Shop online and if I am honest at first it didn't appeal to me mainly because the ages of my monkeys. I honestly didn't think there would be anything for them but I was so wrong. It just goes to show that you should never judge a shop by its title.

The online shop is huge with categories such as souvenirs, home, clothes, accessories, books and even jewellery. I actually browsed through the jewellery for myself and some of the pieces are beautiful.

The personalised T-shirts collection caught my eye, I am a sucker for all things personalised. I think they make an ordinary gift so special.

The long sleeved blue striped Diplodocus tee instantly appealed to me for little J because of the colours. He really suits this type of blue and as winter is coming long sleeved t-shirts are a must.


The personalised part of the t-shirt is so cute. 

First you choose the size - currently ranging from 1.5-2yrs up to 7-8 years. 

Then you enter your child's name.

Your child's year of birth.

Then you choose a dino suffix SAURUS or OSAURUS

When your personalisation is created it will look like the t-shirt in the photo above. We chose to create an OSAURUS personalisation as it fitted better with little J's name.

The t-shirt is made of 100% cotton and machine washable. Due to the printing on the t-shirt you need to iron on the reverse.

The quality of the t-shirt is lovely although little J hasn't been able to wear it yet as I accidentally ordered the wrong size. Although little J is only 30 months his top half is longer than his bottom so we always buy 3-4 years although in some shops he is 4-5 years old in jumpers and t-shirts. As there was no 4-5 years I ordered 5-6 years old which I now know was a mistake as its too big. 

I have put it safely in his wardrobe and hopefully he will be able to wear it sooner rather than later. I am unable to return as its personalised and no returns are accepted unless faulty which is understandable.

What We Loved

It's personalised

The colours of the t-shirt are so bold and will suit little J.

Long sleeved option perfect for autumn and winter days

100% cotton


What Could Improve

It would be nice to have some girly colours because I know lots of little girls who like dinosaurs and would love this. I'm not sure blue or grey would appeal to all girls.

  1. I love this! What a cute t-shirt. I'm a bit annoyed that they only do "boy" colours. I'm so fed up with every interest being assigned a gender. (Sorry, rant). Great review.

  3. Ahhh what a cute top! Love the personalization & the discovered in 2013 part, that is so great. It's too bad they don't do girly colors too. I find it tough for my son who loves art, as most of the art sets are pink & have a girl slant to them. A pink dino would be adorable :) x
