Dinosaur Train Review and Giveaway Closed

Get on board the Dinosaur Train with Buddy, an adorable dinosaur, and his adoptive Pteranodon family as they embark on nine whimsical voyages in the DINOSAUR TRAIN: T-REX TALES DVD available from PBS Home Video and Paramount Home Entertainment.  In these special adventures, Buddy travels to Rexville, home of the Tyrannosaurus Rex dinosaurs, and learns that he too is a Tyrannosaurus! 

DINOSAUR TRAIN: T-REX TALES DVD includes a bonus holiday episode, interactive games, coloring pages, Dr. Scott’s Segments and a reference guide for parents.  SRP: $12.99 (U.S.)

I was sent the DVD Dinosaur Train: T.rex Tales to review and keep. Dinosaur Train is a PBS Kids series geared towards children 3-6 years of age. This DVD also includes a special Christmas episode: Don’s Winter Wish.

“Dinosaur Train embraces and celebrates the fascination that preschoolers have with both dinosaurs and trains while sparking an interest in life science, natural history, and paleontology.”

The T.rex Tales DVD includes the following episodes:
Armored Like Ankylosaurus
Buddy Explores the Tyrannosaurs
Playdate with Annie
Spiky Tall Tale
Big Stomping Feet
Don’s Winter Wish

The T.Rex Tales main character is Buddy, a Tyrannosaurs that is raised in a Pteranodon family. Buddy’s family doesn’t know much about Tyrannosaurs, but are always willing to take the Dinosaur Train to visit Tyrannosaur friends to learn. The Dinosaur Train takes travelers to different time periods to learn about different animals and plants.

I found this DVD to be very educational. I actually learned some things that I didn’t know about dinosaurs. For example, did you know that Tyrannosaurs are always losing their teeth and growing new ones? I knew they were carnivores, but I didn’t know that they had a keen sense of smell.

I like how Buddy is always testing a “hypothesis.” He loves to form an idea and test it. I think that this DVD is a great way to teach children about science, and to get them to form their own hypothesis’s and test them. I think that this would also be a good tool for parents that are home schooling a young child.
