HER roar has not been heard for 125 million years...

But, as children at Crystal Peaks shopping centre, Sheffield, discovered, Tiny’s bark is worse than her bite.

Tiny the Dinosaur, a lifelike stegosaurus with sound and facial animatronics, and extreme puppetry was the star attraction in the shopping mall as part of a summer of free attractions.

Accompanied by an expert palaeontologist sharing facts about the creatures, Tiny helped young spectators to learn more about natural history.

The holiday fun ends tomorrow,with a chance to beat the Textminator, a game of fast thumb work for young text fans, from 10am to 4pm.
