Dinosaur Train

DINOSAUR TRAIN embraces and celebrates the fascination that preschoolers have with both dinosaurs and trains. The series encourages basic scientific thinking and skills as the audience learns about life science, natural history and paleontology. Each of the 40 half-hour episodes features Buddy, an adorable preschool age Tyrannosaurus Rex, and his adoptive Pteranodon family as they board the DINOSAUR TRAIN and embark on whimsical voyages through prehistoric jungles, swamps, volcanoes and oceans. The episodes include two 11-minute animated stories, along with brief live action segments hosted by renowned paleontologist Dr. Scott Sampson, that unearth basic concepts in life science, natural history and paleontology.

Dinosaur Train is Daiel's new favorite show. He is in love with dinosaurs. So there was no surprise when he picked out a dinosaur costume for Halloween.

Daniel is so excited when he gets the dinosaur costume at Target that he has this big dinosaur sitting on his lap in the stroller through the whole mall. His friend dinosaur shares his car seat with him on the ride home. He then wears the costume to watch Dinosaur Train. We end up taking the dinosaur with us to watch Daniel get his hair cut... he is now napping with dinosaur. If you haven't seen the show, check it out!
