Hilarious! Dad accidentally orders a 20 foot dinosaur for his son online

Isn't this always the way when you order online?

I don't know how many times I've seen stories about people ordering things online just to have something very different arrive.

Usually in these stories the problem is that the items are way smaller than expected but that wasn't the issue for this dad.

In fact the item he ordered was so big that it actually had to be crane lifted into his garden.

What was it?

Oh just a 20 foot dinosaur for his four-year-old son.

I know I've given out to my brother and sister for buying my children toys too big for the house before but they've never been so big they wouldn't fit through the front door.

Andre Bisson became the proud owner of this 20 foot dinosaur when his wife had spotted that a local amusement park were selling off some of their statues online.

His four-year-old Theo had previously asked for the largest carnotaurus ever as a gift not long before they spotted the sale so Bisson decided to see if a carnotaurus was among the dinosaurs for sale.

To his luck one was but it came with a heft price tag of a little over one thousand euro. Nevertheless he decided that it was the one thing that his son really wanted so he went ahead and bought it.....without ever seeing it in person first.

Because Andre had only even seen thumbnail images of the dinosaur before he bought it he had no idea it would be 20 foot tall and would require a crane to lift it onto his property.

He did tell Unilad though that he doesn't regret it as his son absolutely adores it;

"Theo didn't want to go to school as he didn't want to leave him, he thought he'd be home alone - he wanted to take him on the yellow crane. He said he was hungry, so we cooked fish fingers and fed him. Theo and Chaz are best buds - he's got a pet dinosaur."

Good call on the fish fingers Theo, I've yet to meet a dinosaur that doesn't love them.
