Camp Cretaceous - YAZ!

Jurassic World Camp Cretaceous - Yaz & Velociraptor Blue - Hasbro 2021

I've been hearing good things about Jurassic World: Camp Cretaceous on Netflix since it first debuted back in 2020, but I just started watching it this week. I know it's intended for a young audience, but beyond the juvenile banter of the campers, it has some pretty mature and dark themes. The show follows a group of young teenagers at an exclusive camp on Isla Nublar. It seems to take place concurrently within the first Jurassic World movie. The campers are a diverse cross-section of modern youth: a nerd, a rich kid, a vlogger, a dino geek, an antisocial athlete, and an overly energetic cowgirl. Yasmina 'Yaz' Fadoula is the antisocial athlete. I'm only a few episodes in and I'm not yet sure what sport she plays (Track & Field I believe), but she always wears athletic duds, is formidable in the action scenes, and hates having her picture taken and has trouble communicating with the others. There are three female campers, and the other two should be out any day now. Let's check out Yaz below!

Yaz comes with two Compsognathus (same as the one that came with the 3.75" Ellie Sattler) and a compass.

I know characters never ride velociraptors, but it's just too tempting.

Time for some Group and Comparison Pics!

Here are all the modern Jurassic Park ladies so far. From Left to Right: Dr. Ellie Sattler, Mia, Yaz, Claire Dearing v1, Maisie, Claire Dearing v2.



  1. The other two has figures as well:
    I was able to find them at a Macys.

    1. Funny you say that, because about 8 hours after I posted this I got a robo-email from ebay with a bunch of random items they "thought I would interested in." And in the mix was the Sammy set. I quickly googled and found pics of the Brooklynn set too. I have the Amazon links bookmarks and was already keeping my eye out at Target. I don't think any of my Macys have toy sections, but I'm curious to check now. Thanks for the heads-up!
