Dinosaur Train All Aboard Game Perfect Holiday Gift For 4+

My daughter knows more dinosaur names than I do. She can rattle off at least 15 more dinosaur names and pronounce them better than me, all because of Dinosaur Train on PBS.

Two weeks ago we received a complimentary board game from The Jim Henson Company and Pressman Toy Corporation to try out for ourselves. The game is perfect for ages 4 and up. If the child can spin the spinner and count, they can play. We have played it at least 4 times a week since getting it and last night the kids played together without me. Love it!

To play, you spin the spinner and move your dinosaur train by counting the dino prints on the track. But wait, it gets better. If you land on a pocket watch you move closer to the finish, land on a crossing space and you move back. The first player to reach the nest in the center of the board, wins.

For 2 to 6 players ages 4+
Retails for $12.99

Can you tell these guys take the game very seriously?

DINOSAUR TRAIN embraces and celebrates the fascination that preschoolers have with both dinosaurs and trains. This top-rated, award-winning series, which airs on PBS KIDS®, encourages basic scientific thinking skills as the audience learns about life science, natural history and paleontology. The stars of DINOSAUR TRAIN are Buddy, an adorable preschool age Tyrannosaurus rex, and his adoptive Pteranodon family who board the DINOSAUR TRAIN to embark on adventures to prehistoric jungles, swamps, volcanoes and oceans. In season one of the series children were introduced to over 40 types of dinosaurs, providing an excellent opportunity to learn and now to collect their favorite dinosaurs. An all-new season of the hit TV series is currently in production with new episodes slated to premiere on PBS KIDS ® in fall 2011.
