Dinosaur Train Hatchers Review & Cake Decorating set & Cupcake Rings Giveaway

The Dinosaur Train Hatchers is the perfect gift in an Easter Basket this year. My sons had so much with this egg. My oldest smelled it and said, "it smells like a dinosaur:)" Squeal of excitement when we saw a crack in it. Even more excitement when he could see Orange and blue through the crack.

We put it in the water that night and about 1hour later there was a crack. He wanted to stay up that night and watch it hatch. He finally fell asleep, he woke up next morning and said there it's eyes! After the head emerged the hatching was pretty fast, cause my son was very hands on with it:) My other son wanted to play in the water.

It has holes on each end so water can fill on the inside. Hatches with in 24 to 48 hours. Characters from Dinosaur Train hatch from their eggs and grow 4x their size. This is a great item to have in your Easter Basket, my boys loved it.


Check out the Dinosaur Train Eggspress application, now for iPhone, iPod and iPad ($2.99), 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!

I just wanted to leave you a comment to thank you for posting about those eggs that hatch. I've got two dino fans and those will go great in their baskets. I'm assuming they are in retail stores and can find them there?
