Intro & History

pterocap-3_edited.png

We are Aiman and Faa, the LA-based creators and storytellers of Fungisaurs. We share a passion for travel, art, quirky collectibles, mushrooms, and dinosaurs. It was only a matter of time till we designed an original toy line combining our interests and multi-perspective thinking learned from real-life experiences.  

The idea of Fungisaurs was born on our way back from Yosemite National Park as we were perusing a mushroom identification handbook and were given dinosaur stickers at In-N-Out Burger. We furiously started sketching the new dinosaur-mushroom hybrid species and prototyped them on a 3D printer upon returning home.

What's Next?

With your support, we hope to connect with small retailers across the United States and by getting Fungisaurs into more stores nationwide, hope to get enough funding to continue engaging, educating and evolving the Fungisaurs brand into a 100% sustainable company. More importantly, we hope to inspire generations about dinosaurs, mushrooms and encourage imaginative play by going outside!
