Dinosaur Train on PBS

Jacob is a HUGE fan of Dinosaur Train on PBS. A new episode of the show aired on December 6th but in case you missed it there are encore presentations scheduled for December 20th and 24th.

In “Big Stomping Dinosaur Feet; “Hornucopia, Daphne, a Daspletosaurus shows Buddy how to make stomping a fun dance instead of a temper tantrum. At the Big Pond, Tank introduces the Pteranodon family to his friend, Stacie Styracosaurus, a fellow Ceratopsian with a crown of elaborate horns on her head.

The episode is also one of eight fun and educational adventures available on the DINOSAURS IN THE SNOW DVD from PBS KIDS and Paramount Home Entertainment, in which Buddy travels to the North Pole, explores nocturnal animals, becomes a detective, celebrates his birthday and more! The DVD also features an interactive game, coloring pages, a dinosaur reference guide and parent information. SRP: $14.99.

In DINOSAUR TRAIN, young viewers join Buddy and his adoptive family of Pteranodons on whimsical adventures through prehistoric jungles, swamps, volcanoes and oceans as they unearth basic concepts in natural science, natural history and paleontology. The Dinosaur Train is a colorful locomotive, customized to accommodate all kinds of dinosaurs, and it has the ability to visit the Triassic, Jurassic and Cretaceous worlds, while the Train’s Conductor, a knowledgeable Troodon, provides passengers with fascinating facts along the way.


Jacob enjoyed watching the show. He loves trains and is getting into dinosaurs and I think that combining two childhood favorites was a great idea on behalf of the shows creator. Dinosaur Train is animated but also has live-action parts featuring a paleontologist who brings to life the dinosaurs featured in the show. I like how he teaches the children the names of the dinosaurs too and gives them a chance to practice saying them (it’s great for moms to practice, too!) I love shows that educate my children while entertaining them and this is definitely one of those shows.
