My kids really loved this one, and the vivid colors even caught my toddlers attention. She doesn't watch a lot of tv yet and won't take a second glance at many cartoons but she will actually sit and watch this one! My boys liked it too which was another shock. Each episode starts off with the Pteranodon family announcing a new field trip where they will introduce a new species. Since they use the scientific words for each dinosaur, there were a lot of long words that the kids didn't understand but it didn't seem to bother them at all. This one is a definite new favorite in my house and is entertaining & educational for all ages!

The eight episodes include:
Elmer Elasmosaurus
Carla Cretoxyrhina
The Amazing Michelinoceras Brothers
Paulie Pliosaurus
Elmer Visits the Desert
Shiny’s Sea Shells
Jess Hesperornis
The Old Spinosaurus and the Sea

I hadn't even heard of Dinosaur Train before! My kids only watch tv when they are at my Moms or at friends since we don't have cable at home but they all said they hadn't seen this one yet. The Poop song isn't on this dvd, but it sounds like fun lol :)
