"Dinosaur Train", created by Craig Bartlett (Hey Arnold!), embraces and celebrates the fascination that preschoolers have with both dinosaurs and trains while encouraging basic scientific thinking and skills. Each episode includes animated segments with live-action sequences featuring a paleontologist who brings to life the show's natural science and natural history curriculum for preschoolers, giving specific facts about dinosaurs and comparing their features to animals of today.

I did not receive anything for this post.  Any opinions stated in this post are mine and unbiased.  For more information on my disclosure policy please visit the P.R. section of my site. 


  1. We are a family of young skiers and would really like to take a train through Glacier Park to see Salt Lake City, Jackson Hole and Grand Tetons in the spring or summer. Colorado would also be cool, I guess I just like being dwarfed by snow capped mountains and I know my kids love the big mountains as much as the idea of big stomping dinosaurs.

  2. I havent really been to too many places but thebest place i went to was Washington D.C.

  3. I have only been to Texas and South Carolina to visit family.but of the two I would pick South Carolina.

  4. I went to Ocean City,MD when I was little but I would love to go to Hawaii or some place tropical
