Charlotte’s Blackhawk Hardware just got a new massive store pet.
Today, a 15-ft., 400-lb. T-Rex dinosaur was installed at Blackhawk, hanging from the ceiling above the store’s toy section.
Children of all ages are invited to a “Meet the T-Rex” event on Saturday, July 24 from 10 a.m. to 12 pm. There will be goody bags for the first 25 shoppers to visit the toy section and the store will have fun activities for kids. Attendees can enter a contest to name the T-Rex for a chance to win a prize pack and gift certificate to Blackhawk.
The life-like T-Rex was presented to Blackhawk Hardware as the newest flagship store for Schleich, an international manufacturer of hand-painted toy figurines and play sets. Blackhawk is the only flagship retailer for Schleich in the Charlotte area and only the third in the Carolinas.
The giant new T-Rex will have a selfie spot for photos.
