Jurassic Dinosaur Train

We have a few Dinosaur Train fans in our house. It’s a favorite show that appeals to both our five and three year old. Even I have learned a thing or two about dinosaurs while watching the show. On Monday, August 18, PBS KIDS will premiere “Classic in the Jurassic,” an all-new one hour special from The Jim Henson Company’s hit series DINOSAUR TRAIN!

In the special, kids travel through time with the Pteranodon family to an Olympic-type competition in which dinosaur teams representing three Mesozoic time periods compete in contests. Following the special, new episodes of DINOSAUR TRAIN air on PBS KIDS throughout the week!

Get the kids excited about the upcoming show and print out a few of these cute coloring pages found here.

Clips and full segments from “Classic in the Jurassic” will be available on, the PBS KIDS Video App, and on Roku and Apple TV starting on August 18. And on August 26, “Classic in the Jurassic” will be available on DVD through PBS Distribution.

Want a copy of the “Classic in the Jurassic” DVD and other DINOSAUR TRAIN goodies? Just leave a comment on this blog post sharing who you would give the Dinosaur Train gift to.

{Contest will be open until Friday August 22nd, 2014. Winner must be a US resident and will be notified via email. I am a PBS Kids VIP Ambassador but I was not compensated for this post. All opinions are my own.}
