Premiering This Week: Dinosaur Train Under the Sea (Plus a Dinosaur Train DVD Giveaway)

I recently posted a giveaway for a Dinosaur Train backpack full of great products, and now I have some more exciting news -- and another Dinosaur Train giveaway -- to share! This Friday, August 20, 2010, The Jim Henson Company and PBS KIDS are presenting a special one-hour TV special called “Dinosaur Train Under the Sea.” If you’re familiar with this award-winning show, you know that it’s about a family of dinosaurs that rides all over on a train and experiences plenty of adventures. In this new special, they make their first trip underwater in an Aquacar! While there, they explore the Cretaceous, Jurassic and Triassic oceans and learn about aquatic creatures. New friends include Elmer Elasmosaurus, a long-necked marine reptile, and Carla Cretoxyrhina, a friendly shark. Here’s a video preview of “Dinosaur Train Under the Sea”:

And here’s some more good news: “Dinosaur Train: Dinosaurs Under the Sea” will come out on DVD on August 24th! It includes eight exciting episodes of the series, plus games, coloring pages, a dinosaur reference guide, and information for parents. If your kids are Dinosaur Train fans, this is a must-have DVD to add to your collection!

However, I’m well-acquainted with the Dinosaur Train show and feel confident that the TV special and new DVD will be highly entertaining!
