Giveaway: 'Dino Dan: Dino Trackers' DVD

 

Do you know the difference between a Brachiosaurus and a Diplodocus? CC does now, thanks to "Dino Dan."

CC has caught a few episodes of the paleontology-friendly kid series on Nick Jr., and she's learned even more dino tidbits from the new NCircle Entertainment DVD "Dino Dan: Dino Trackers" ($12.99) that I received for review. (I'm giving away 1 copy of the DVD, too, thanks to NCircle!)

If you haven't seen the show, "Dino Dan" is a live-action/CG-animated show that spotlights 10-year-old Dan, who's obsessed with dinosaurs. He imagines them in his everyday life -- at school, at home, trotting around his neighborhood. Every time he spots one, Dan's curiosity is piqued, and he researches everything from what the dinos eat to how they defend themselves.

And that part has totally inspired CC. It also doesn't hurt that he has a smart-cookie friend named Angie, who's described as a "typical type-A overachiever." She even corrects Dan a bit on his dino knowledge.

I've noticed that for CC it's important that shows feature smart, strong-minded girls. She mentions it every time I ask her what she likes about certain programs. I can tell she's looking for a role model or someone she can relate to. After all, she's not shy about asking questions.

I had to give her a high-five during one of the episodes, "Name-A-Saurus," when Dan wanted to name a dinosaur he had never seen before. Its primary feature? A long tail that it used as a kind of whip in battle.

"What would you call that dinosaur?" I asked CC.

"Smackosaurus!" she said.

Dan found out later, via Angie, that it was actually called a Diplodocus. But I think Smackosaurus works just as well, too.
