Dinosaur Train Fun!

Choo-Choo it's time to get on the train...Dinosaur Train that is!  If you have little boys at home they are probably already familiar with Dinosaur Train but if not it's time to get in on all the Dinosaur Train fun as you ride the train while learning all about Dinosaurs, The Jungle,  and much much more!  Shoot, I am pretty sure even you as the parent will learn some really fun and interesting facts too, I know I sure do!

Coming this February the Dinosaur Train will premier a one hour special on PBS Kids called  "Submarine Adventure". It will include four all new fun and exciting stories about sea creatures that lived along with the dinosaurs. Preschoolers will be introduced to many new fun characters including Achelon Turtles, to Otto Opthalmosaurus. They will learn some cool and interesting stuff including natural history, science, and paleontology. 

Remember when I told you that you might even learn something?  Well did you know that just recently last December a giant marine reptile that lived around 150 years ago was identified as a new creature.  And did you know that this creature now named Pilosaurus Funkei spanned about forty feet and had a huge 6.5 foot scull.  Not to mention a bite as powerful as a Tyrannosaurus Rex!  Told you that you just might learn something!

The Four Fun Episodes Includes:

  • Otto Ophthalmosaurus
  • Shoshana Shonissaurus
  • Maisie Mosasaurus
  • A Sea Turtle Tale

To celebrate the one hour premiere you can read the fun new book titled "Ride Along The Dinosaur Train".  This neat book is full of Dino-riffic fun!  Your child can use the slide along train at the top of the book to visit all the stops along the dinosaur train.
