A Dino-mite Giveaway!!!


The Jim Henson Company and PBS SoCal Host Afternoon of Activities and Fun on May 7, 2011

Dinosaur Train” is celebrating America’s love of trains with special programming and activities throughout the month of May. To kick off, the award-winning and critically acclaimed animated preschool series from The Jim Henson Company, will debut an all new episode on May 6 on
PBS KIDS ® (please check local listings). And, in honor of National Train Day, The Jim Henson Company and PBS SoCal will host a celebration with partners, sponsors, supporters and media friends of the critically-acclaimed animated series at the Los Angeles Live Steamers Railroad Museum on Saturday, May 7, 2011 from 2:00 to 4:30pm. The EXCLUSIVE event was announced today by Lisa Henson, CEO, The Jim Henson Company, and Mel Rogers, President and CEO of PBS SoCal.

Guests at the “Dinosaur Train” celebration will be treated to rides on the beautifully built and maintained 7½" gauge model trains that travel over two miles of track.* They’ll also meet the museum’s train enthusiasts who will be on hand to answer questions and provide plenty of train facts. Guests will also be able to get their picture taken with “Buddy,” the dinosaur and participate in a special singalong with Craig Bartlett, creator of “Dinosaur Train.” Bartlett will perform such popular songs as the “Dinosaur Train” Opening Theme Song, I Love Trains, and Dinosaurs A to Z.
Several “Dinosaur Train” brand partners will also be participating in the event. At the Random House Reading Corner, Lisa Henson, CEO of The Jim Henson Company, and Joe Purdy, the series story editor, and known to fans as Mr. Disclaimer, will read one of the many “Dinosaur Train” books published by Random House; and the MEGABrands Play Corner will feature the all-new construction toy sets based on “Dinosaur Train.” There will also be a Junior Conductor Craft Area with activity sheets, coloring pages and other interactive offerings for young attendees.
