Jim Henson's Dinosaur Train characters are cute and likable and graphics are simply stunning. My little ones were literally riveted to the screen for the entire feature. As parents, my husband and I appreciated that there wasn't any loud or obnoxious rap or rock and roll music. The Dinosaur Train theme is catchy and upbeat; we were all singing along within minutes.
Although marketed for preschoolers and young children, I have to say that all my children loved this DVD. And after viewing it twice, I wanted to see if the older ones had learned anything. Turns out, the two oldest (ages 8 and 9) had some interesting facts to share with me. Catherine explained how turtles lay eggs on the beach and then leave them to hatch. The tiny babies crawl back to sea all on their own! Joseph told me how much bigger prehistoric animals were compared to modern-day creatures like turtles and lizards. He had especially enjoyed the bonus segment where a real paleontologist talks about some of his favorite prehistoric water creatures and compares them to modern animals.
If your children love dinosaurs or the sea or just colorful and engaging stories, they will truly enjoy this DVD! You can view full episodes and clips from Submarine Adventure using the PBS Kids Video Player and the PBS Kids Video App.
