Nothing makes a child happier than their favourite toy, film or new-found obsession.

Parents will do almost anything to keep that joy – and now one mum has gone the extra mile to do just that.

Gemma Simmons, 33, surprised her ‘dinosaur obsessed’ two-year-old with an incredible Jurassic Park bedroom makeover.

The mum-of-one, who lives in Ridgewell, Essex, spent a month turning her son Grayson’s previously grey room into a dinosaur dreamland.

‘Grayson has been obsessed with dinosaurs for months and months and I don’t do things by halves, so I decided to go all-out with it,’ Gemma explained.

‘I took inspiration from lots of different places, so I combined all the different ideas I saw to make something unique.’

She painted clouds on the ceiling, and wall art featuring a dinosaur safari scene means the room wouldn't be out of place in the film set theme park. The savvy shopper got her supplies from Amazon, Ebay, Etsy, The Range and Ikea and added a teepee tent, indoor tiki torches, and dinosaur heads mounted on the wall. Fake ferns add to the outdoor vibe, as well as a blanket box transformed into a dangerous dino transport pod.

To give the bedroom the ultimate outdoor Jurassic Park feel, the property sales progressor painted clouds on the ceiling and included wall art depicting a dinosaur safari scene.

‘I didn’t have a clear plan when I started – I shopped around online and picked out things that Grayson would like,’ Gemma said of the project.

‘This is his first proper big boy bedroom, so I wanted him to have a bedroom he loves.

‘After seeing his reaction, I’d say I achieved it!’
