All Aboard the Dinosaur Train for a New Episode -- and a Giveaway for Dinosaur Train Pajamas!

The PBS KIDS hit series Dinosaur Train, brought to you by The Jim Henson Company, is roaring into 2011 with an all-new episode, which premieres this Monday, January 17, 2011 (check local listings for time). In the first part of this all-new episode, “The Good Mom,” Mrs. Pteranodon meets fellow mom, Millie Maiasaura, who is a little too over-protective of her kids. The two moms share some time comparing mothering methods in a play date at the Big Pond. You might be interested to know that Maiasaura, meaning “good mother lizard,” was a large duck-billed dinosaur that lived in North America during the Late Cretaceous Period. There is evidence that Maisaura lived in large nesting colonies and that the parents diligently cared for their young! And in the second part of the show, “Diamond Anniversary,” Mr. and Mrs. Pteranodon decide to surprise each other with gifts on their anniversary!

Here’s another great debut from Dinosaur Train! Kohl’s now carries adorable Dinosaur Train Striped Footed Pajamas to keep your toddlers warm and cozy during the winter months. The dinosaur appliques and striped pattern on these footed pajamas offer timeless touches, and the footed design keeps little toes toasty. Available in sizes 2T-5T.

So, head over to Kohl’s this weekend to pick up a pair of Dinosaur Train PJs for your little one, and then program your TV to record the new Dinosaur Train episode airing this Monday on PBS KIDS!
