Dinosaur Train Halloween Fun

Halloween is right around the corner, and The Jim Henson Company and Dinosaur Train have all the right ingredients for some spooky fun holiday:
Buddy and Tiny costumes are available for kids from California Costume Collections.  Buddy and Tiny are the main characters on the hit Emmy-nominated and Parents’ Choice Silver Honor animated television series, Dinosaur Train, airing on PBS KIDS. Each Dinosaur Train costume is made up of soft fabric to enhance comfort while wearing them, and created in vibrant colors and realistic design patterns to make toddlers look and feel like a dinosaur train character! The colorful Buddy costume - which Callan received and loves -  includes the orange colored T-Rex jumpsuit, Buddy the dinosaur hood, and the shoe covers. The colorful Tiny costume includes the green colored Pteranodon jumpsuit, Tiny the dinosaur hood, and green shoe covers. Both costumes are available for toddlers ages 3-4, and children ages 4-6. SRP: $34.99 – $39.99. Costumes are available at various retail locations and online stores across the U.S. A list of online stores can be found here: http://californiacostumes.com/locations.
More “spooktacular” fun with The Spooky Scavenger Hunt from Penguin Young Readers Group.                                                 For a little scary Dinosaur Train Halloween fun – enjoy reading The Spooky Scavenger Hunt from Penguin Young Readers Group in which Mr. Pteranodon takes Buddy and Tiny on a nighttime trip to the Big Pond for a spooky nature walk! Mr. Pteranodon and the conductor insist they can't be scared, but when the conductor's mom jumps out at them, everyone gets a good scare! This simple storybook is perfect for read-aloud fun! Ages 4 - 8; SRP $3.99. It was fun reading this to Callan, he loved it. And then we shared it in his classroom as well! A hit all around!

And don’t forget to watch Halloween themed episodes from Dinosaur Train to air on PBS Kids Haunted Roundhouse and Big Pond Pumpkin Patch to air during the week of October 15th, October 22nd, and on October 31st – check local listings. 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.
