Holiday Gift Idea – Boy or Girl

 1-2013-11-05 10.51.25

Dinosaur Train has some new products for the holiday season that your Dino loving fan is sure to love.  This is a nice gift pack that could be broken up into a couple of gifts for two children or one gift for one!  Or a great gift for siblings to share.

Dinosaur Train: Winter Lights – (Golden Books/Random House Children’s Books) 

The Pteranodon family celebrates the beginning of winter with a trip to the North Pole! This Little Golden Book retells an episode of the PBS Kids show Dinosaur Train in which Buddy the T. rex and his siblings get to see the amazing Aurora Borealis! This book is for ages 2–5, it was published in September 2013 and is available where books are sold for about $3.99.  I love these little Golden Books and so happy they are still making them.

Dinosaur Train Peel & Stick Wall Decals – RoomMates

All aboard the Dinosaur Train! These fun wall decals will help you bring Buddy, Tiny, Shiny, Don, and more of your favorite dinosaur friends into any room. Your child will love having their Dinosaur Train friends on their walls! Like all RoomMates, these decals are removable and reusable, and can be repositioned over and over again without damage or residue. Help your little one go on their very own expedition by decorating their room with these stickers!  Decorate a room in seconds: Peel and stick, repositionable, removable with no sticky residue, easy to hang and easy to remove.  Made in the USA.   Decals range in size from 1.1″ wide x 1.7″ high to 8.5″ wide x 11.6″ high; 4 Sheets 10″ x 18″.

These are great for ages 2 and up and have been available since February 2013.  You can find them at Sears and and they sell for about $14.99 each.

Dinosaur Train “Troodon” 24-Piece Jigsaw Puzzle – Karmin

“Troodon” is just one of six new 24-piece jigsaw puzzles from Karmin, each one featuring a bonus laminated Dinosaur Fact Card.  Kids can have fun putting the puzzle together while learning interesting facts about dinosaurs.

This is great for children ages 3 and over and was just launched in the Fall of 2013.  You can purchase them at AC Moore, Christmas Tree Shops and other independent retailers for about $4.99 each. My youngest loves doing puzzles and is so proud at how much better she is getting.  And I love watching her do them.  She has a little system and doesn’t get frustrated.  I think it’s a great way to improve their fine motor skills.

Dinosaur Train: We are a Dinosaur Family – PBS Distribution

The holiday season is the perfect time of year to reinforce the importance of family. In the new DVD, Dinosaur Train: We are a Dinosaur Family, eight adventures feature prehistoric family fun at its best – the Pteranodon kids visit with their grandma and grandpa; Buddy, Tiny and Mr. Pteranodon join a few other dinos for a dad’s day out; and Buddy and the Pteranodon kids look for flowers to give to mom on her special Mother’s Day.

This DVD is approximately 100 minutes long and was just released on October 8, 2013 so it’s BRAND NEW!  Perfect for keeping your little one busy while you get a little housework done, or just an opportunity to put your feet up.
