PBS Kids Heads Skyward With New ‘Dinosaur Train’ DVD

Courtesy: PBS Kids/PBS/Public Media Distribution

PBS Kids and Public Media Distribution have partnered to take families into the sky with a new Dinosaur Train DVD.

Dinosaur Train: Dinosaurs Take Flight will be released Tuesday, June 13 in stores and online. The DVD features eight more episodes spread across a single disc at a total run time of two hours. The DVD will retail for MSRP of $12.99 and can be ordered online now via PBS’ online store.

Dinosaur Train: Dinosaurs Take Flight gets its name primarily from its special four-part episode which takes the Pteranodon family on the maiden voyage of the Dinosaur Train Zeppelin.  Tiny, Shiny, Don and their parents discover more than just more dinosaurs on the airship’s first flight.  They also learn about how Earth’s continents came to be spread across the planet, how craters and atolls are formed and even waterfalls.

The second group of episodes is unrelated to the disc’s main episodes. However, it does follow the flying theme in the collection’s title as Don befriends a dragonfly in “Don’s Dragonfly,” and as the Pteranodon family, with the help of Mr. Conductor, help a lost bird get back home in “The Lost Bird.”

The flying theme continues in “Pterosaur Flying Club” and “Petey The Peteinosaurus” as the Pteranodon kids and their friends practice for a flying show and as Tiny, Shiny, Don, and Buddy meet new friend Petey Peteinosaurus respectively.

Dinosaur Train: Dinosaurs Take Flight will be released Tuesday, June 13.  More information on this new DVD is available online along with lots of Dinosaur Train activities, games and more at:

Stories, Segmentation, Songs Make New ‘Daniel Tiger’s Neighborhood’ DVD A Success

Courtesy: PBS/PBS Kids/Public Media Distribution

Summer is right around the corner and so is summer break.  That means families across the country will soon be looking for ways to keep their children entertained if they haven’t already done so.  Luckily, PBS Kids and Public Media Distribution have just the answer – a brand new DVD that takes Daniel Tiger and his parents on a family trip.  Daniel Tiger’s Neighborhood: Tiger Family Trip will be released May 16 in stores and online, and there is plenty for the whole family to appreciate about this new release whether going on their own family trips this summer or not beginning with the DVD’s main story and its segmentation.  The lessons tied into the main story (and its companion episodes) are important to note too in examining the DVD’s overall presentation.  The songs, while they may not seem overly important, are in fact important in their own right to the DVD’s presentation, too.  Each element is important in its own right.  Altogether, they make Tiger Family Trip a visual trip that audiences of all ages will enjoy.

Daniel Tiger’s Neighborhood: Tiger Family Trip is a visual trip that audiences of all ages will enjoy.  This applies whether families are going on their own family trips this summer or not.  This is proven first and foremost through the DVD’s main story and its related segmentation.  The story follows Daniel and his family as they take a trip on Trolley to see Granpere, Daniel’s grandfather.  This is the kind of trip that is common during summer vacations, so it is fitting that it is being presented to home audiences in that exact time of year.  On a related note, the story’s companion episodes, which see Daniel and company visit a carnival, a butterfly garden and setting up a lemonade stand, are also very summer-themed stories.  They will just as certainly entertain families this summer.  They could even inspire families to take their own summer adventures to do the same kind of things.  Considering this, the DVD’s main story and its companion stories prove to be key pieces of the DVD’s presentation.

The story at the center of Tiger Family Trip is just one part of what makes that main feature so enjoyable.  It is just one part of what makes the DVD’s presentation a success.  The story’s segmentation adds even more depth to that presentation.  Audiences will note that the main story is broken up into four distinct segments, each of which clocks in at roughly 10 to 11 minutes long.  This might not seem like much on the surface, but in reality it is highly important.  That is because those short run-time ensure even more young viewers’ engagement.  If those behind the program had presented this story in one full presentation, odds are it might not have kept those same audiences engaged.  To that end, the main story’s segmentation proves to be just as pivotal to the DVD’s presentation as the story itself.

The story at the center of Tiger Family Trip’s main feature and its segmentation are both key features to said story.  The story is a work that is relevant to families of all types.  Its segmentation ensures young audiences’ engagement from beginning to end.  The lessons that are tied into the story are just as important to note in examining this DVD’s presentation as the story and its segmentation. Audiences will note that the show’s writers incorporated some familiar lessons into this original story.  Those familiar lessons include one about not waiting to use the bathroom, properly expressing one’s feelings and talking about them and other items.  The companion episodes present their own familiar lessons about trying things that are hard or maybe scary to a certain point.  As with the story’s segmentation, this might not seem overly important, but the opposite is the reality.  The fact that the writers could so effectively incorporate such familiar lessons into new scenarios yet again shows a lot of time and thought was put into their use.  The writers are to be commended for taking such time to consider this in creating the DVD’s main story.  That is not all for which they are to be commended.  The story’s musical numbers are important in their own right, too to the DVD’s presentation.

The story at the center of Tiger Family Trip, its segmentation and lessons are all key elements to discuss in examining this new DTN DVD. As has been noted, each element plays its own pivotal part in the DVD’s presentation.  They are only some of its key elements, too.  The songs that are incorporated into the story are just as important to discuss as the previously noted elements, believe it or not.  From rockabilly to light pop and in-between, the writers crafted a variety of songs that will entertain audiences of all tastes regardless of age.  This, like the story’s segmentation and lessons shows its own share of thought, too.  It shows a clear attempt by the show’s writers and creative forces to reach as many audiences as possible even through an element as minute as music.  Such consideration is just as worthy of applause as that used in developing the story, its segmentation and lessons.  When all three of these elements are joined, they make Tiger Family Trip a presentation that will entertain any family regardless of whether or not families are going on their own vacations.

Daniel Tiger’s Neighborhood: Tiger Family Trip is an enjoyable new offering of episodes from PBS Kids’ hit animated series Daniel Tiger’s Neighborhood.  It is a collection of episodes that families will enjoy regardless of whether or not they are going on their own vacations.  That is due in part to the fact that it boasts yet another set of new stories that are expertly segmented and that feature some familiar lessons that are expertly placed in each story.  The songs that are incorporated into each story will reach audiences of all ages and tastes, too.  Each element is important in its own right to the DVD’s overall presentation.  All things considered, they make this DVD a visual trip that every family will enjoy regardless of whether or not families are going on their own vacations this summer.  It could even motivate families to go on some new family outings be it a road trip or something closer to home.  It will be available in stores and online May 16 and can be ordered online direct via PBS’ online store.  More information on this DVD is available online now along with lots of activities, games  and more at:

Audiences Of All Ages Will “Dig” PBS Kids’ New ‘Dinosaur Train’ DVD

Courtesy: PBS/PBS Kids

PBS Kids’ hit science-based series Dinosaur Train is one of the network’s biggest hits.  That is because of its ability to make science fun with its combination of trains and dinosaurs—two things that almost every child loves.  Over the course of its now four seasons on television, the series has entertained and educated audiences of all ages with that expert balance of material.  That entertainment and education continued in a big, new way with the new “movie” What’s at The Center of the Earth?  The program, which sees the Pteranodon family diving deep into the earth and learning even more new lessons.  That story is, in itself, one of the key elements to discuss in examining the program in its recent DVD release.  The DVD’s namesake movie” isn’t the only story presented in its new home release.  Four other episodes are included with the DVD’s main story.  That will be discussed later.  The viewing options presented to audiences rounds out the most important of this DVD’s elements.  Each element is important in its own right to the DVD’s presentation.  All things considered, Dinosaur Train: What’s at The Center of the Earth? proves to be a presentation that audiences of all ages will *ahem* dig.  Yes, that terrible pun was fully intended.

PBS Kids’ latest Dinosaur Train DVD What’s at The Center of the Earth? is a release that audiences of all ages will “dig.”  That is due in part to the story at the center of its main feature.  The story takes the Pteranodon kids and their dad on a ride deep into the earth with Mr. Conductor and his nephew in search of a spot for a new underground train station.  It is not the first time the series has seen the Pteranodon family digging for gems and other items.  It is, though, the first time that the show’s writers have taken its main characters so deep into the earth.  They have gone beneath the waves many times, into the skies and all around the prehistoric world.  This time though, is the first time the writers have taken audiences so deep into the earth. It should be noted though, that the Drill Train doesn’t go to the center of the earth, but it does take the kids pretty deep regardless.  To that end, the DVD’s main story proves to be an integral piece of its overall presentation.  It is just one part of what makes the DVD such an enjoyable presentation.  The companion stories included with the DVD’s main feature play a pivotal part in its presentation, too.

The main feature of PBS Kids’ new Dinosaur Train DVD is in itself a key part of its presentation.  That is because it is such an original work, considering the series’ history so far.  It is only one of the elements that should be discussed in examining the DVD in whole.  The companion episodes that are included with the main feature are important to note, too.  All four episodes are taken from the series’ fourth season (its latest season).  The first pairing—‘Nest Swap’ and ‘The Herd is the Word’—originally aired together March 18, 2016.  ‘Spinosaurus Super Model’ came much later in the season’s run while ‘Where Have All The Lizards Gone?’ aired almost halfway through the season.  The episodes are not presented in the same chronological order here in which they were presented during their original broadcasts, but the fact that they all come from the same season—the series’ latest season no less—shows that a certain amount of thought was put into their inclusion.  It keeps all of the episodes as close together as possible.  What’s more, the stories presented within each episode each differ from one another, ensuring audiences’ engagement even more.  Keeping all of this in mind, the extra episodes included in What’s at the Center of the Earth? are just as important to the DVD’s overall presentation as the DVD’s main feature.  The viewing options presented to audiences round out the most important of the DVD’s elements.

The story at the center of What’s at the Center of the Earth? and that story’s companion episodes collectively establish a solid foundation for this latest Dinosaur Train DVD’s presentation.  That is due to their content and the fact that they all come from the same season, rather than being from all four seasons.  While the episodes themselves are so pivotal to the DVD’s presentation, they are not its only important elements.  The viewing options used for those episodes is important to discuss, too.  Audiences will be happy to know that they can watch the episodes one at a time or in linear fashion.  When audiences choose the “Play All Episodes” option, that option still presents solid break points between episodes and the mid-show segments with Dr. Scott that allow viewers plenty of time to stop if needed.  Watching the episodes in non-linear style separates the mid-show segments from the episodes and the episodes from each other, too.  Simply put, regardless of what options audiences choose, both options prove to be positive for viewers.  When this is considered along with the DVD’s episodes and their stories, the whole proves to be a presentation that once again, audiences of all ages will “dig.”

PBS Kids’ new Dinosaur Train DVD What’s at the Center of the Earth? is a program that, in its recent home release, that audiences of all ages will “dig.”  The story at the center of its main feature supports that statement in part.  The companion episodes that come with that central feature strengthen that statement even more.  The DVD’s viewing options round out its most important elements.  Each element is important in its own right to the DVD’s overall presentation.  All things considered, they make this DVD yet another enjoyable offering from PBS Kids and its hit series.  They make it a DVD that the whole family will “dig.”  It is available now in stores and online, and can be ordered online direct via PBS’ online store.  More information on this DVD is available along with more Dinosaur Train activities, news and more at:
