Pajamas, Slippers and Holiday Book Review
My son LOVES Dinosaur Train! We discovered the show on PBS when he was a few weeks shy of his 1st birthday back in 2010, so he’s basically grown up watching Buddy and his Pteranodon friends. The show is not only fun and exciting, but also features lots of educational themes and life lessons that I enjoy to watch with my son. We received a great package of Dinosaur Train goodies that were a HUGE hit in our home! Hopefully these will be great gift ideas for the Dinosaur Train fan in your family!after reading my review for the Dinosaur Train fan in your family!
The folks over at Dinosaur Train sent over a fun pair of Dinosaur Train Buddy & Pteranodon Friends pajamas, slippers, and a great holiday book, "A Holiday with Buddy"! I also learned about two other great products that are available featuring Dinosaur Train, which I will also tell you about in this review post! All of these products would make excellent holiday gifts for your little one, so get ready to add on a few Dinosaur Train items to your shopping list this year!
Dinosaur Train Buddy & Pteranodon Friends Pajamas!
Treat your little one to a fun, comfy, and really cute set of pajamas featuring Buddy and his Pteranodon friends! My son fell in LOVE with these adorable PJ’s from the moment he laid his eyes on them. He insisted on wearing them immediately – even though it was only noon! I couldn’t resist, so I gave in and watched his face light up as he threw on his brand new set of Dinosaur Train pajamas from American Marketing Enterprises (AME).
This set has a suggested retail price of $20.00 and currently available on WebUndies.com! There are several alternative styles to choose from, including the Dinosaur Train Infant and toddler boy’s footed pajamas at your local Kmart and Kmart.com. Available in sizes 2T, 3T, and 4T!
* Now your little guy can get comfy with Buddy, the curious T-Rex and his Pteranodon pals Shiny, Tiny & Don!

I’ve been looking for a great pair of slippers that my son would actually wear around the house (as opposed to taking them off every 2-minutes!). He’s been wearing his new Dinosaur Train slippers every night and insists on keeping them on at all times, too! Available in sizes S, M, L with a suggested price of $16.00. I found these Dinosaur Train slippers on Amazon — and I am definitely going to pick out a pair for my girlfriends son, too!

Tiny and the Crocodile/Meet the Grandparents
Team Pteranodon travels to Dienosuchas Swamp to meet Deanna Dienosuchas, a 40 foot crocodile with many big teeth, and a crabby attitude. Tiny leads the way to warm up Deanna who turns out to be more friendly and less scary than our kids imagined.
The Pteranodon kids have special visitors – their Grandma and Grandpa! The kids delight in realizing they share similar traits with their grandparents (laughs, expressions, and interests), and love showing Grandma and Grandpa around the nest area and playing some games they all like.
The Egg Stealer?/To Grandparents’ Nest We Go!
Buddy and Don stumble upon a mystery when they find unhatched eggs on their beach! The mystery grows when some of the eggs are stolen. Don and Buddy become detectives and suspect that maybe Tiny, Shiny, or other friends may be stealing the eggs. They’re not. Soon, all the kids join in to solve the mystery, as they figure out that the eggs belong to an over-protective, caring mom named Olivia Oviraptor who is just trying to keep her eggs safe.
Buddy, Tiny, Shiny, and Don have fun spending a special day with their retired Grandma and Grandpa at their cliffside nest. The kids get to see things from their Dad’s childhood nature collection, and afterwards they play games and fish with Grandma and Grandpa.
