Refe Tuma and his wife have a very special set of pranks that they pull on their daughters every November - DINOSAUR PRANKS. In a move they call "Dinovember," their daughters' plastic toys "come to life" every night and wreak havoc on the Tume household. As Refe puts it, " In a time when the answers to all the world's questions are a web-search away, we want our kids to experience a little mystery. All it takes is some time and energy, creativity, and a few plastic dinosaurs."

Makes you feel good, doesn't it?
