The favorite channel in our house is PBS. My kids love the shows and I love that they are educational. While limiting t.v. in young children is a good thing, I appreciate a break now and then and Dinosaur Train has been a favorite in our house! My four year old son Lucian is obessed with trains and my two year old is in love with dinosaurs so this is a perfect match for them.
I like that the show focuses on teaching everyday lessons like playing together and appreciating everyone’s differences combined with facts about dinosaurs and science concepts! In case you haven’t had a chance to catch this adorable show, here is a bit more information.
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.
In the all-new episode, “The Good Mom;” “Diamond Anniversary,” 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. Mr. and Mrs. Pteranodon decide to surprise each other with gifts on their anniversary.
If you miss the airing of this episode you can catch some of it at PBS Dinosaur Train Lesson Plans.
If your child is also a Dinosaur Train fan like mine, look for adorable pajamas like these available at Kohl’s. They come in sizes 2T-5T and features dinosaur appliques, classic stripes and Buddy’s head is even featured on the feet! Adorable, right? They have a SRP of $26 but anyone who shops at Kohl’s knows you’ll be able to catch them on sale for a fabulous price!
