Dinosaur Train Make A Match Game {Giveaway}

Dinosaur Train{This giveaway is now closed. Congratulations, cmyoung!}

I'm pretty sure that every kid I know is a fan of Dinosaur Train... I'm not sure how PBS KIDS does it, but it seems as though each new show that they introduce to their lineup ends up being a favorite.

There is just something universally appealing about Buddy and his adoptive family of Pteranodons and their whimsical adventures through prehistoric jungles, swamps, volcanoes and oceans. With each episode as they unearth basic concepts in natural science, natural history and paleontology, kids are learning while also being entertained.

And who could not be excited about the Dinosaur Train itself, the colorful locomotive customized to accommodate all kinds of dinosaurs with the ability to visit the Triassic, Jurassic and Cretaceous worlds? My girls love the Train's Conductor, a knowledgeable Troodon, and the way he provides passengers with fascinating facts and calls out "Time tunnel! Time tunnel approaching!" in each episode.

Dinosaur Train familyIn addition to the award-winning television series, however, there is much more that the Jim Henson Company has included to boost the interest in scientific thinking and Dinosaur Train. On the interactive website, there are plenty of fun games and activities and kids of all ages will especially have fun with Flying with Buddy.

This slightly addicting game, ahem, reinforces counting skills as players use the mouse to control the flight of Don, Tiny and Buddy. After one minute of the trio cheerfully collecting seashells, they return to their nest to count the treasures they have collected... and then you'll want to play again to beat your score!

Or, for more family fun, check out the information on the Dinosaur Train geocache program - a fast growing adventure game that inspires families to get out and discover treasures together. A great way to get the whole gang up and moving and enjoying the outdoors and spending time working together!

So, for the Dinosaur Train fan in your life, there's no better way to celebrate Valentine's Day than by taking advantage of the free Valentine's Day card download available now from PBS (or directly from the PDF). What a cute way to celebrate the holiday with this Valentine's Day 2011 exclusive card!

For an additional way to not only celebrate Valentine's Day but to have fun all year long, Pressman Toy now offers your little enthusiast the Dinosaur Train Make A Match game to extend the fun of the show right into your living room.

In this colorful matching game, Buddy and his friends sharpen children's memory skills with cute cards and a Buddy figurine. Similar to memory except with innovative additions such as "Take Buddy" cards, "Wild Cards" and "Lose a Pair" cards to add excitement, Dinosaur Train Make A Match is designed for 2 to 4 players (ages 3 to 6) and is available at Toys "R" Us stores nationwide for just $9.99.

Sounds like fun, doesn't it? Well, thanks to the generosity of the Jim Henson Company, PBS KIDS and Pressman Toy, one person will get to see just how entertained their children will be with this great game, because...

One lucky person will win a Dinosaur Train Make A Match game!
