This giveaway is now closed. Congratulations to commentor 71: Vickie C!
Did you know that a Brachiosaurus weighed up to 80 tons and a T-Rex could eat up to 500 pounds of meat in one bite? Avid fans of “Dino Dan,” Nick Jr.’s adventure-filled live action/CGI series, do! Now, the popular “paleontologist approved” show is available on DVD with “Dino Dan – Dino Trackers,” the premiere title in a brand new series from NCircle Entertainment.
My 4 ½ year old son, Ethan, is a big fan of dinosaurs. So, when I got the chance to review a DVD called Dino Dan: Dino Trackers, I accepted happily. When it arrived, my son saw the case and the pictures of Dan and the dinosaurs and asked to watch it right away. Dino Dan is a live action show with CGI dinosaurs, and I thought it was very well done.
Dino Dan: Dino Trackers is 60 minutes long and contains five different stories featuring a boy nicknamed Dino Dan (played by Jason Spevack). He’s a curious 10-year-old who imagines there are real dinosaurs living all around him – but only he can see them! The episodes include “Name-A-Saurus”, “To Flee or Not to Flee”, “There’s a Compsognathus Under My Bed”, “Dino Trackers” and “Mini-Dino”. The DVD also contains several extras- an episode of Are We There Yet?: World Adventure featuring a trip to a dig site in Alberta where lots of dinosaurs have been found, a Dino Dan Field Guide and a Dino Fact Finder.
My son wanted to watch every single episode and extra and then wanted to start them all over again when we were through. So, definitely a hit with my little boy! I also really liked the show. The episodes are fairly short, which is great for those with shorter attention spans, but they’re full of fun and information about dinosaurs. It’s a good kids’ show that educates kids without them noticing that they are learning. And the show has what I think is the best theme music for a kids’ show ever!
Dinosaurs never lose their appeal to kids of all ages – but what makes the “Dino Dan” series unique is that it was developed under the guidance of paleontologists at Canada’s Royal Tyrrell Museum in Alberta. In fact, you may be interested to know that a real-life paleontologist at the museum named Dr. Don Henderson is the inspiration for the “Dino Dan” character!
