Dinosaur Train Halloween Costumes Review

My kids LOVE to watch Dinosaur Train on PBS and my three year old has declared that he wants to go as a dinosaur this year. Imagine my excitement when I discovered that Dinosaur Train has released two new costumes, Buddy and Tiny which are available at Spencer Gifts and regional and independent retailers nationwide. When I asked my son if he liked the Buddy costume, he jumped up and down and roared like a dinosaur….I took that as a “yes.”

The Dinosaur Train “Buddy”  costume is too cute for words. When my son modeled it to make sure it fit, our entire family couldn’t stop giggling. Jacob really got into character and started imitating the adorable T-Rex. We live in Florida and it is almost impossible to find a costume that is not too hot to wear but the Buddy costume is just the right weight of fabric, soft and not at all flimsy but not hot either. Each costume includes a jumpsuit, character head and matching shoe covers. This costume is available for toddlers ages 3-4 and children ages 4-6. It retails for $39.99.

The Dinosaur Train costume “Tiny” is a sweet Pteranodon and is perfect for any Dinosaur Train fan. “Tiny” is available for toddlers ages 3-4 and children ages 4-6. It also retails for $39.99.

For those who are particularly crafty and creative you can even create your own “Buddy” costume at home. These are adorable but I am thankful that I have the option to buy my costume because I am sonot crafty.

There are sew and no sew options too!

You can see a video of the sew version.

Beginning October 25th, PBS Kids will be featuring a Halloween “Spooktacular” line-up including Dinosaur Train “Night Train”in which“Dad, Buddy and Tiny take a special ride on the Dinosaur Train at night, learning about animals that are active after dark, culminating at the Big Pond for a nature walk under the full moon.”I have always appreciated that Dinosaur Train has an educational component that is presented in a wholesome, fun and educational manner. It is one show that I do not hesitate to let my children enjoy on a regular basis.

You can even watch a fun Dinosaur Train Halloween Video!

Now if you will please excuse me…I have a dinosaur to wrestle out of his costume and that is no easy feat since he is a T-Rex! Happy Halloween from the Dinosaur Train.
