If you can't make it to a National Fossil Day event, you can still celebrate with your child by reading a book about fossils, staging a pretend "fossil dig" in a sandbox, or watching Dino Dan on TV! Dino Dan is a cool 10-year old who wants to be a paleontologist when he grows up. He also has a big secret: Dinosaurs are roaming the earth right now! Kids will love watching Dino Dan's adventures and learning about dinosaurs.
You can catch Dino Dan on TV or on DVDs from NCircle Entertainment. Their latest Dino Dan DVD, 'Twas a Dinosaur, gives "The Night Before Christmas" a uniquely Paleolithic spin, inviting kids to join 10-year-old protagonist “Dino Dan” as he explores intriguing facts about dinosaurs while embracing the spirit of the season. The DVD comes with an extra surprise: a cool augmented reality app! The back of the DVD has a T-Rex fossil that comes to life when you scan it with your iPad. Here's what you have to do:
1) Download the Dino Player app from iTunes onto your iPad
2) Start up the Dino Player app
3) Point your iPad camera towards the T-Rex fossil on the 'Twas a Dinosaur DVD.
The T-Rex will magically appear on your iPad screen!
The T-Rex ppears in 3D, stomping and swinging his head. When you tap on the screen, you can make the T-Rex roar. How cool is that, having a T-Rex in my very own kitchen :) Dino Dan was right, dinosaurs ARE all around us!
Future Dino Dan DVDs from NCircle Entertainment will feature different dinosaurs from the hit children’s television series using the app -- such fun!
