Final Thoughts: You can't go wrong with this DVD. Even if you haven't seen the PBS Show or one of the other dvds, you and your children will be entertain. If you have not seen a episode of the show, it centers around the adventures of Buddy,  who is a Tyrannosaurus Rex and his adoptive Pteranodon family. Throughout the shows Buddy is inquisitive and wants to learn about all the different dinosaurs, so he goes on the Dinosaur Train to visit the time periods of Triassic, Jurassic and Cretaceous. The trains conductor provides Buddy and his siblings neat facts about the other dinosaurs along the route.

This DVD contains eight 11 minute segments that are sure to keep your kids entertained. Also perfect opportunities for you to stop when its time for the kids to go to bed! Your kids will also learn about eggs, how the dinosaurs hatch, adoption, and more.  This is a really cute DVD and a nice addition to the Easter basket! Even at 2 years old, he was just enamored by the dinosaurs and sat still the entire time. So its never too young to get a child this DVD!
