My son loves Dino Dan. He can watch him all day and it’s great if he does since he really is learning about dinosaur facts from Dan. We don’t have cable so when it’s time to relax for the day and my son wants to watch a show Dino Dan DVDs are an immediate first at our house. He was so very excited to see these arrive in the mail.
He’s been watching the same Dino Dan DVD, Dino Trackers, which is included in the four pack, far too much and I think it was almost broken! I asked him what his favorite episode was and he said “the one with the dinosaur under the bed”. Thanks for the clarity buddy! In the picture below he was a bit annoyed since I was taking him away from his show. (Can’t you tell?)
I highly recommend Dino Dan. It’s nice to see my son like to watch something on TV besides cartoons. You can watch Jason Sevack who plays Dino Dan on Nick Jr. nightly at 5 p.m. Read on for more information about the show!
Dino Dan is an ordinary 10-year old boy with an extraordinary obsession: he eats, sleeps and breathes dinosaurs. A typical day for Dan isn’t complete unless he’s racing a T-Rex on his school track, finding a Pterodactylus in his attic or getting a baby Brachiosaurus back to its mom. But kids don’t need to imagine dinosaurs because in Dino Dan, dinosaurs lurk around every corner, they’re behind every mystery, they fuel every adventure, and they help answer questions, too!
Dino Dan also specializes in getting his contrasting crew of classmates and teachers engaged in his larger-than-life adventures. Not only are Dino Dan’s adventures incredibly fun, they’re also incredibly educational, as each episode centers around a common kid issue like having to play with your little brother, going to the dentist, or trying to win at hide ‘n’ seek. These, naturally, lead Dan to wonder how the dinosaurs would act in a similar situation.
As Dino Dan comes up with a dino question or experiment to test his theories, he’s also teaching kids about science. If his first theory proves false, Dan comes up with a partial answer or discovers new information to help him resolve the question. Then Dan discovers a new way of tackling the experiment and the problem is resolved. And since the dinos in Dino Dan don’t speak, high-five, or use deductive reasoning, Dan and his pals work with the dinos’ instincts as part of their scientific method for proving theories.
