Closed-Halloween with Dinosaur Train & Sid the Science Kid & #GIVEAWAY!

Hey All!

It’s almost that time for Halloween can you believe it! Time flies.  And to celebrate Halloween The Jim Henson Company is celebrating this year with Dinosaur Train and Sid The Science kid! Halloween is right around the corner, and The Jim Henson Company has all the right ingredients for a spooky fun holiday!   Get ready for the festivities to begin in October with:

  • All New Episodes from Dinosaur Train and Sid the Science Kid scheduled to air on PBS Kids®
  • Halloween Costumes to Make at Home Designed by The Famous Jim Henson Creature Shop
  • Dinosaur Train Halloween Costumes from California Costume Collections Available for Purchase
  • “The Spooky Scavenger Hunt” New Book Available from Grosset & Dunlap 

Dinosaur Train NEW EPISODE Haunted Roundhouse/Big Pond Pumpkin Patch will premiere 10/20 on PBS Kids (check local listings)!

In Haunted Roundhouse, dad takes the kids on a special Night Train to Troodon Town, where the Troodons have decorated their Roundhouse into a “haunted house” for a spooky party. The kids end up meeting a strange new nocturnal creature – a mammal named Vlad Volaticotherium, who was hiding in the roundhouse trying to get some sleep.  And in Big Pond Pumpkin Patch, the Pteranodon family learns more about the customs of their neighbors, the Lambeosaurus family, when they are invited for the first time to accompany them to the Big Pond to celebrate “Gourd Day” – a kind of Mesozoic Halloween. The kids see their first pumpkins, and Larry Lambeosaurus even shows our family how to hollow them out and carve faces into them.

The Sid the Science Kid Spooky Science Special premieres 10/17 on PBS Kids (check local listings)!

In Halloween Spooky Science Special, it’s Halloween time and Sid and his friends have dressed up in the spookiest and scariest costumes possible.  Sid is a bat with big fangs.  May is a spooky black cat.  Gabriela is a furry, yucky spider.  And Gerald is a super spooky skeleton that goes boo!  Susie (dressed as a silly mad scientist) loves their costumes, and helps the kids discover that Halloween can be spooky and scientific!  The kids investigate how bats are helpful creatures that catch mosquitoes, spiders are expert engineer web builders, cats are leaping aerial acrobats, and skeletons help hold up our body frames!  At the Halloween party, the kids also investigate how to make icky, gooey green slime.  Susie then ends the day with a special “Halloween Parade” song so the kids can march around and show off their spooky and scientific costumes!

Also if your child loves these programs I’m sure they’ll want to be Buddy for Halloween! Buddy is the main character on the hit TV series, Dinosaur Train.  This colorful costume includes the orange colored T-Rex jumpsuit, Buddy the dinosaur hood, and the shoe covers to match the costume. Available for toddlers ages 3-4, and children between the ages of 4-6. They cost anywhere from: $34.99 – 39.99.

Or your child can be Tiny you can get some amazing Dinosaur Train Halloween Costumes from California Costume Collections. Tiny is also one of the main characters on the hit TV series, Dinosaur Train.  This colorful costume includes the green colored Pteranodon jumpsuit, Tiny the dinosaur hood, and green shoe covers to match the costume.  Available for toddlers ages 3-4, and children between the ages of 4-6. This also costs anywhere from: $34.99 – 39.99.


Each Dinosaur Train costume is made up of soft fabric to enhance a child’s comfort while wearing them. The costumes are also created in vibrant colors and realistic design patterns to make your toddler look and feel like a dinosaur train character.

These costumes are amazing! I was lucky to have gotten a Buddy costume for my little mini me nephew who practically lives with me for Halloween and he’s unfortunately little to small for it right now, but it is so well made and adorable that he can certainly wear it next Halloween. His love of Dinosaur Train won’t fade by then I’m sure. I’m sure he’ll make the perfect buddy!

Or you can try to make your own Buddy Costume. For those of you who are feeling a little adventurous, Jim Henson’s Creature Shop, the folks who brought you Elmo and Miss Piggy, among many others, have created a Buddy costume that can be made at home!
