Dinosaur Train: Dinosaurs in the Snow - DVD Review

DVD Synopsis:

In eight fun and educational adventures available on the DINOSAURS IN THE SNOW DVD from PBS KIDS and Paramount Home Entertainment, 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.

Buddy and his Pteranodon family ride the Dinosaur Train to the North Pole, where it's cooler, and the skies are dark all winter long.

Episode 8 - Flowers for Mom

The kids to go the Big Pond to look for flowers to give to Mom on her special Mother's Day.

My Review:

As you can tell, there are many episodes to keep kids entertained for a while. I had never previously seen Dinosaur Train on TV before, but this DVD is fun, wholesome entertainment for younger children. All of the characters are lively and likeable. In addition to being an enjoyable DVD to watch, it is educational. Children learn facts about dinosaurs while they watch the adventures of Buddy, an adopted T. Rex, and his friends.

I received DVD for review from Three.Sixty Marketing & Communications. The opinions within this post are of my own and I was not influenced in any way. Please do your own research before purchasing products. Your opinions and results may differ.
