Dinosaur Train: Dinosaurs in the Snow

By now you all know how I feel about the PBS show Dinosaur Train....LOVE IT!  This adorable educational show ranks amongst my favorite shows that A&W watch these days.  There is a new episode of Dinosaur Train our now (hooray!) and PBS is also airing some fun wintry episodes as well.  Read on...

An all new episode of the hit CG-animated preschool series, DINOSAUR TRAIN™, is scheduled to premiere December 6 on PBS KIDS®, where the series ranks in the top 5 children’s programs among kids ages 2 to 5.*

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.          

Encore presentations of “Dinosaurs in the Snow;” “Cretaceous Conifers” will broadcast on December 8, 12, 20, and 24 (check local listings). 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.

A&W just love this show and this DVD did not disappoint.  Dinosaurs, Trains and Snow equal great big thumbs up all around this time of year!  Dinosaurs in the Snow is jut perfect for the little ones on your list.  Pick up a copy today on Amazon or at other major retailers.  Also be sure to check out to find out when you and the kiddos can enjoy this fabulous show.   Happy Viewing!
