Do you know where dinosaurs come from? From Dinosaur Egg hatchers of course! This Easter instead of hiding a bunch of colored boiled eggs how about hiding a few Dinosaur train Hatchers. With Dinosaur egg Hatchers watch the characters from Dinosaur Train hatch from their eggs and grow 4x their size! The anticipation waiting for them to hatch is so exciting kids sit, wait and watch with anticipation for a meer little sign of a crack to let them know that a baby dinosaur is soon on the way.
Taking any where between 24-48 hours for full hatching. Simply drop the egg in a cup or bowl full of water and wait. There are 2 holes on either side of the egg that allow water to get inside and allow the dinosaur to grow. The egg slowly starts to crack and soon after 4-6 hours you see a glimpse of the dinosaur peeking through.
Overnight the process continues and when children awake you’ll see a larger breakthrough. My children wanted to pick it up and talk about it. They wanted to know how he got in there and how long it will be before he comes out. Inquiring little minds with adding a fun history lesson. It was so interesting to hear all of the questions.
It took a little over 24 hours for ours to hatch. “When Buddy” finally broke through the egg the kids were so excited they wanted to pick him out. It was a great way to teach patience and let them know that they need to keep busy because Buddy was still working hard at breaking out of his shell. After he breaks out and the kids were able to touch him, break off the remaining part of the egg. There’s a name label in there along with a stand to put him on.
Now for iPhone, iPod and iPad ($2.99), Dinosaur Train Eggspress application challenges your child to find and match dinosaur eggs and then reunite dinosaur families while progressing through three different time periods. Your child will discover real flora and fauna from the Triassic, Jurassic, and Cretaceous eras. Along the way, there will be learning moments as Buddy and the Conductor reveal mystery dinosaur hatchlings, fun dinosaur facts, and an adorable Dinosaur Baby Book. All aboard!
