Dinosaur Train has been a favourite in our household for some time, so when the hit show’s newest DVD release Dinosaur Train: Eggstravaganza arrived at our front door, my boys couldn’t have been happier about it. Here’s a brief synopsis of the release:
What can be better than a basket full of Easter eggs? How about a train full of dinosaur eggs! Buddy and his Pteranodon family set off for new adventures as they encounter baby hatchlings and dinosaur eggs of all shapes and sizes in Dinosaur Train: Eggstravaganza! They’ll learn that all dinosaur families are different, and so are the ways of nurturing them. And who knows, they might just solve a mystery or two while they’re at it! From the world-renowned Jim Henson Company, PBS KIDS and Paramount Home Entertainment, the Dinosaur Train: Eggstravaganza DVD includes eight exciting edu-tainment adventures and is packed with loads of special features including interactive games, colouring pages, a Dinosaur Reference Guide, information for parents and more.
Zackary was never very “into” dinosaurs, but Benjamin absolutely loves them and has quickly become a big fan of the Dinosaur Train series. He doesn’t understand much of the educational content yet, but he loves watching the different dinosaurs that are featured in the episodes!
My own favourite aspect of the show has always been its focus on the scientific method of reasoning: asking a question, researching, forming a hypothesis, testing it, drawing a conclusion and sharing the results. These six simple steps have been responsible for some of our society’s most incredible discoveries and I love that Dinosaur Train features it as the best method for answering questions in its episodes.
Dinosaur Train: Eggstravaganza has a run-time of approximately 100 minutes and features eight fun and informative episodes and some great bonus features. My boys both especially loved watching Dr. Scott the Palaeontologist talk about the dinosaurs in each episode after the show was over. And I have to admit, I liked that segment as much as my kids; it’s always so informative! If you have dinosaur-loving kids in your household or even just preschoolers with an insatiable curiosity, check out Dinosaur Train: Eggstravaganza for yourself. It’s a fun-filled way to get your kids excited about learning.
