Review - Dinosaur Train: Hatchers

Easter is right around the corner and Dinosaur Train has come up with the perfect Easter product!  I got so excited when I found out about Hatchers because I would have went nuts for them as a kid.  You start out with an egg and then you put it in a glass of water.that is room temperature.  After a day or two, a Dinosaur Train character will hatch and grow.  When it stops growing, you can take him out of the glass and throw the shell pieces away.  The hatcher will go back to it's original size when it is not in water, but if your child would like to see it big again, all they have to do is put it back in some water.  Pretty cool, huh?  This is the perfect addition for your child's Easter basket.

The Dinosaur Train is a colorful locomotive, customized to accommodate all kinds of dinosaurs, and it has the ability to visit the Triassic, Jurassic and Cretaceous worlds, while the Train’s Conductor, a knowledgeable Troodon, provides passengers with fascinating facts along the way.

Hey Arnold!), embraces and celebrates the fascination that preschoolers have with both dinosaurs and trains while encouraging basic scientific thinking and skills.
