Dinosaur Train Halloween Review and -Rafflecopter- Giveaway -- ENDED

DD is a huge fan of Dinosaur Train. She has been watching it for a couple of years now. Since she was already a dinosaurs lover, it was easy for her to fall in love with a cute show that's all about dinosaurs. For this Halloween, DD was lucky enough to have received Buddy costume. She was so excited when the box arrived and she could not wait to open up the package.

We thought the costume was really cute in person too. Seeing how excited DD was to see the costume was simply priceless. If you have a child who loves Dinosaur Train as well, you have to check out costume. You can purchase Dinosaur Train costumes from California Costume Collections.
Halloween is right around the corner, and The Jim Henson Company has all the right ingredients for a spooky fun holiday! Get ready for the festivities to begin in October with:

All New Episodes from Dinosaur Train and Sid the Science Kid scheduled to air on PBS Kids®
Halloween Costumes to Make at Home Designed by The Famous Jim Henson Creature Shop
Dinosaur Train Halloween Costumes from California Costume Collections Available for Purchase
“The Spooky Scavenger Hunt” New Book Available from Grosset & Dunlap


Dinosaur Train NEW EPISODE Haunted Roundhouse/Big Pond Pumpkin Patch premiere 10/20 on PBS Kids (check local listings)

Repeats- 10/24, 10/28, 10/30 , 10/31

In Haunted Roundhouse, dad takes the kids on a special Night Train to Troodon Town, where the Troodons have decorated their Roundhouse into a “haunted house” for a spooky party. The kids end up meeting a strange new nocturnal creature – a mammal named Vlad Volaticotherium, who was hiding in the roundhouse trying to get some sleep. And in Big Pond Pumpkin Patch, the Pteranodon family learns more about the customs of their neighbors, the Lambeosaurus family, when they are invited for the first time to accompany them to the Big Pond to celebrate “Gourd Day” – a kind of Mesozoic Halloween. The kids see their first pumpkins, and Larry Lambeosaurus even shows our family how to hollow them out and carve faces into them.

Sid the Science Kid NEW EPISODE Spooky Science Special premieres 10/17 on PBS Kids (check local listings)

Show Repeats- 10/25, 10/28, 10/30, 10/31

In Halloween Spooky Science Special, it’s Halloween time and Sid and his friends have dressed up in the spookiest and scariest costumes possible. Sid is a bat with big fangs. May is a spooky black cat. Gabriela is a furry, yucky spider. And Gerald is a super spooky skeleton that goes boo! Susie (dressed as a silly mad scientist) loves their costumes, and helps the kids discover that Halloween can be spooky and scientific! The kids investigate how bats are helpful creatures that catch mosquitoes, spiders are expert engineer web builders, cats are leaping aerial acrobats, and skeletons help hold up our body frames! At the Halloween party, the kids also investigate how to make icky, gooey green slime. Susie then ends the day with a special “Halloween Parade” song so the kids can march around and show off their spooky and scientific costumes!

Jim Henson's Creature Shop — the folks who brought you Elmo and Miss Piggy, among many others — have created a Buddy costume that can be made at home!
