Dinosaur Train: A Brand-New Episode and a DVD Giveaway!

I’ve had the pleasure of being able to offer Dinosaur Train giveaways before, and they’re always popular because it’s such a great show! In fact, this Jim Henson production ranks in the top 5 children’s programs among kids ages 2 to 5! This Monday, December 6th, there’s a brand-new episode of Dinosaur Train premiering on PBS Kids! In “Big Stomping Dinosaur Feet”/“Hornucopia,” Daphne, a Daspletosaurus, shows Buddy how to make stomping a fun dance instead of a temper tantrum. And 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. Be sure to watch or record this brand-new episode on Monday!

For the holidays, you’ll be able to catch encore presentations of “Dinosaurs in the Snow”/“Cretaceous Conifers,” which will broadcast on December 8, 12, 20, and 24 (check local listings for times). This particular episode is also one of eight fun and educational adventures available on the Dinosaur Train: Dinosaurs in the Snow DVD from PBS Kids and Paramount Home Entertainment. On the DVD, Buddy travels to the North Pole, explores nocturnal animals, becomes a detective, celebrates his birthday, and more! This DVD also features great bonus features: an interactive game, coloring pages, a dinosaur reference guide and parent information (SRP: $14.99).

GIVEAWAY

Wouldn’t that DVD make a great holiday gift for your kids? I have one copy of the Dinosaurs in the Snow DVD to send to one lucky winner!
