"Dinosaur Train" embraces and celebrates the fascination that preschoolers have with both dinosaurs and trains while sparking an interest in Life Science, Natural History and Palaeontology.
The Big Idea: While riding the Dinosaur Train with Buddy and Mum, Tiny gets the idea to gather all the dinosaurs in the ' Dinosaurs A to T song for a picnic at Troodon Town. The train starts picking up dinosaurs, as Tiny and Buddy help keep track of how many of the different species have come on board, and where they are on the dinosaur A to Z list. Spread the Word: The Dinosaur Train continues traveling around the Mesozoic picking up more and more dinosaurs that are in the ' Dinosaurs A to T song. Tiny and Mrs. Conductor team up to help keep order on the increasingly crowded train. Classification: The Pteranodon family ride the Dinosaur Train (now with extra cars attached) as it continues picking up more dinosaurs that are in the ' Dinosaurs A to T song. The Pteranodon family reunite with some dinosaurs they've met before, and are introduced to species they've never met! Don leads the way organizing the dinosaurs on the train by their species, features, and size. Pisnic: The Pteranodon family are on the Dinosaur Train, now very crowded with all 26 dinosaurs mentioned in the * Dinosaurs A to Z' song. At Troodon Town, all the dinosaurs have fun at a picnic, and then Tiny leads the 26 different ' A to Z dinosaurs in a fun, rousing, and historic singing of the 'Dinosaurs A to Z' song! King Meets Crystal: During a day at Troodon Town Music Festival, the Pteranodon family and King Cryolophosaurus hear a wonderful singer named Crystal Cryolophosaurus. King is very interested in becoming friends with Crystal, another dinosaur of his species, but he gets very nervous when trying to talk to her. Tiny and Buddy help King overcome his nervousness, and he and Crystal end up friends who happily sing together. Remember the Alamosaurus: The Pteranodon kids and Dad get the idea to travel around on the Dinosaur Train and meet some of the biggest dinosaurs. They meet Allie Alamosaurus, an enormous, long-necked, plant eating sauropod who is very friendly. Allie explains that her huge, strong legs hardly bend at all, but she can still have fun playing games with the kids, and teaching them some of her favourites! Buddy Explores the Tyrannosaurs: Buddy wishes he knew more about his T. rex ancestors. So, Dad takes him and Tiny on the Dinosaur Train back to the early Cretaceous, to visit an ancestor: an earlier version of Tyrannosaurus rex called Raptorex. Rodney Raptorex is a kid who won't grow up to be as big as Buddy will, but the two boys find that they not only have a lot of differences, they have a lot in common, too.
