Holiday Gift Guide: PBS Kids Dinosaur Train & Daniel Tiger DVDs with Figurines + Giveaway!

Disclosure: I received these DVDs to facilitate this review. No other compensation was received and all opinions are 100% my own and honest. 



If you are looking for gifts for preschoolers, I am excited to share Grace's ultimate stocking stuffer this season. She is obsessed with all of the shows on PBS Kids. From Curious George to Super Why, she loves them all. I grew up watching Sesame Street and Mister Rogers on PBS and now my kids are enjoying shows like Dinosaur Train and Daniel Tiger from PBS Kids. As a parent, I can trust that their shows will be age appropriate and educational for my kids. We recently got the chance to review two of PBS Kids' new DVD sets for the holidays, Daniel Tiger's Happy Holidays and Dinosaur Train: Dinosaurs in the Snow. 

Grace absolutely loves Daniel Tiger. His adventures always include a song to remind kids about the important lessons from the episode. We use those songs daily in our house to help Grace remember things like sharing, going potty, and even how to act when you get frustrated. I honestly can't tell you how many times I've sung "When you feel so mad that you want to roar, take a deep breath and count to 4."  I think we have watched every single episode so she was so excited to watch and play with the included figurine. This DVD includes 7 tales: Something Special for Dad, I Love You, Mom, Thank You, Grandpere Tiger! Neighborhood Thank You Day, Katerina's Costume, Dress Up Day, and Snowflake Day!

This is her new favorite DVD and she especially likes the Dress Up Day episode. She loves to play dress up and she enjoys watching the characters play her favorite activity. I know we will be watching this DVD many many times in the future!

Dinosaur Train is quickly becoming a favorite of Connor's. He loves anything with trains and adding in cute talking dinosaurs makes it that much better! I have learned so much about dinosaurs from watching this show and I'm fairly sure my kids know more dinosaur names than I do now.

Climb aboard the Dinosaur Train and join Buddy, Tiny, Shiny, and Don on 8 action-packed adventures. Travel to the North Pole where it's cooler and the skies are dark all winter long; play "detective" and search for dinosaur fossils; meet a singing dinosaur named King, and join in the fun as Shiny, Tiny, and Don throw a surprise party for Buddy and invite a whole caboose full of his favorite friends.

Did you know that there were dinosaurs in the North Pole? I definitely didn't! With a singing Elvis type dinosaur aptly named King and fossil discoveries, this DVD is packed full of fun. Both kids enjoy it and the Buddy figurine has been a hit. 

I love that both of these sets include a figurine, it encourages creativity and both kids enjoy playing out scenes from these DVDs. Grace has now requested figurines of the other characters in both shows! These sets would make perfect gifts for the toddlers and preschoolers on your list! They can be purchased now at ShopPBS now: Daniel Tiger's Happy Holidays + Figurine and Dinosaur Train: Dinosaurs in the Snow + Figurine for $14.99 each.
