Has anyone seen the colorful red dinosaur along 469 heading west? There is also one on Winchester Road North of 469. They are 3 to 4 foot tall and look like some sort of candy or toy dispenser.

I seen one of these in the food court game room at Jefferson Pointe. Wander if someone didn't steal a few from the vending company.

I see it everyday. Before you get to the one in the corner close to the road, there is a line of about eight of them in the opposite corner of that field. What is it?!

I have seen those so many times! I went to Wayne High School last year and they are right along the exit I get off at and I thought they were the scariest things! For a while there were only two, but then one day there was a line of like eight of them! how creepy is that?!?! I am glad I don't have to drve past there anymore. I think they are freaky.

I drove past this the other day with my fiance. He saw it and I didn't. Does anyone have a picture of it? I'm not from the area and will probably not be back by there anytime soon. I'm dying of curiosity!! Thanks!

Oh, I'm so glad my family and I aren't the only ones who have seen these! Now that we know what they are, I'd like to know why people are collecting them?

It's called "Dave the Dinosaur". It's a vending machine. There's one close to Jefferson Point, and also next to US30, just west of Route 101. I'm clueless, however, as to why they are placed in random places around here!
