“Dinosaur Train Eggspress” from PBS KIDS 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 the Dinosaur Train!
HUNT FOR DINOSAUR EGGS
Collect the missing dinosaur eggs that are scattered all over the landscape. You won’t be able to see them, so you’ll have to glide your finger around until you discover the eggs one by one… When you find them all, you’ll learn fun facts about one of the many dinosaur species featured in the game.
MATCH DINOSAUR EGGS TO THE RIGHT NEST
Oh, no, the dinosaur eggs are all mixed up! You’ll need to move the eggs into the right nests in three rounds of play. First, sort by color. Next, match patterns and shapes. And, finally, both colors and patterns will come into play.
REUNITE DINOSAUR FAMILIES
Two dinosaur mommies have found an egg, but which is the right one? The mommies are two different species of dinosaurs! Use clues and hints suggested by the Conductor to choose the right species and reunite the egg with its mommy.
MAKE DINOSAUR PICTURES
After winning three baby dinosaurs, one for each mini-game, you can color them in your Dinosaur Baby Book. The magic paint brush will fill the dinosaur with the actual colors that paleontologists believe were unique to that species. Tap on the camera icon (bottom-left) to save your pictures to your Photos app (one of the basic apps provided by Apple when you purchase an iPhone or iPod touch).
Discover all 20 dinosaur species!
