  Jim Henson's Dinosaur Train: Meeting New Friends

 Review by Suzanne Lanoue 6/10/18

This is a cute kids' DVD that will no doubt keep them occupied for a while. Not only are these shows fun and entertaining for the kiddies, but they're highly educational. You learn a lot about dinosaurs.

The set has 8 stories and is 100 minutes long. This would make a great gift for any child under 7 or their parents. Fans of Jim Henson's The Muppets might also like it, although it is geared towards young children. I think older kids might like it, too. The animation and voices are good, and the stories are fun.
