Halloween is almost here! This year your kids can celebrate with all their friends from Dinosaur Train with character costumes, a spooky Halloween book and special Halloween themed episodes on PBS kids!
To celebrate the holiday Dinosaur Train style, your little ones can even dress up like favorite characters: Buddy and Tiny. California Costume Collections offers adorable versions of both Buddy and Tiny in costume sizes for Toddlers and Kids aged 4-6. The costumes are made of soft, comfortable fabric and created in vibrant colors and realistic design patterns.
But, if you are ready to take on a challenge, you can make your very own Buddy costume at home! There are both sew and no-sew options, all brought to you directly from Jim Henson's Creature Shop. Find instructions to make your own Dinosaur Train Buddy costume here.
Your kids can also enjoy some reading fun from Dinosaur Train with the new book "The Spooky Scavenger Hunt” from Grosset & Dunlap. See what happens when Mr. Pteranodon takes Buddy and Tiny on a nighttime trip to the Big Pond for a spooky nature walk! Mr. Pteranodon and the conductor insist they can't be scared, but when the conductor's mom jumps out at them, everyone gets a good scare!
And don't forget to watch the special Halloween episodes on PBS kids now through the 31st! In Haunted Roundhouse, dad takes the kids on a special Night Train to Troodon Town, where the Troodons have decorated their Roundhouse into a “haunted house” for a spooky party. The kids end up meeting a strange new nocturnal creature – a mammal named Vlad Volaticotherium, who was hiding in the roundhouse trying to get some sleep. And in Big Pond Pumpkin Patch, the Pteranodon family learns more about the customs of their neighbors, the Lambeosaurus family, when they are invited for the first time to accompany them to the Big Pond to celebrate “Gourd Day” – a kind of Mesozoic Halloween. The kids see their first pumpkins, and Larry Lambeosaurus even shows our family how to hollow them out and carve faces into them.
