DVD Review: Dinosaur Train: I Love Dinosaurs

I Love Dinosaurs

Tomorrow a new DVD will be released for the TV show Dinosaur Train. The show follows the Pteradon family. They travel on a special train that goes from time period to time period to discover the world around them and meet various dinosaur species. In this new DVD there were some episodes that had a little bit of love for the theme. In one Mr. Conductor finds a special friend in Erma Eoraptor and in another King Cryolophosarus wants to become friends with Crystal.

The kids help and hinder their friends in these endeavors. In the case of Mr. Conductor there are just too many people and too much to do that it prevents Mr. Conductor from being able to spend some time with his friend Erma. With the King the kids, Tiny and Buddy recognize that the King needs help and they help him out. Here’s a clip from the DVD and a Press Release below.
