Dino fans sink their teeth into swap day

DINOSAUR fanatics stomped down to Alexandra Park to track down elusive cards at the NewsMail dinosaur card swap meet.

Collectors ranged from grandparents to young families and all joined in the fun.

There were balloons, a treasure hunt, raffles and giveaways.

Grandmother Tracey Raines took five-year-old grandson Blayde to finish off their collection.

"We had almost two sets and were able to complete them, and get a third set for my other grandson," she said.

"Everyone was good and put down their cards and were happy to share."

Mrs Raines said the timing was perfect, with Blayde having a dinosaur-themed birthday party yesterday.

"He's always been into dinosaurs and dragons," she said.

  • Don't worry if you missed the card swap day, the NewsMail will have details later this week on how you can still get any missing cards for your collection.
