This DVD has an extra-special surprise in store for fans young and old. The DVD marks the premiere of an exciting new augmented reality app for Apple iOS devices, by which a mighty Tyrannosaurus Rex comes vividly to life in 3D – complete with stomping and roaring sound effects.

How the app works:

Purchase the “Dino Dan – ‘Twas A Dinosaur” DVD and download the free Dino Dan: Dino Player augmented reality app (available on Apple iTunes). Once loaded, the app will present a menu displaying the fearsome T-Rex. Hit the ‘Start’ button to begin seeing through the iOS device’s camera. Point the camera to the back of the “Dino Dan – ‘Twas A Dinosaur” DVD cover (which also acts as the AR marker) and watch the mighty T-Rex emerge. Click anywhere on the screen to make the T-Rex roar!

Our Thoughts…

Both my son (nearly 2) and daughter (age 4 1/2) really enjoy watching the Dino Dan adventures! I feel that this DVD is super kid friendly and a great addition to any families Holiday DVD collection to watch between now until the end of December! I bet you’ve never seen a Dinosaur version of a Night Before Christmas! My kids and I both really enjoyed it and I’m sure we will continue to do so for years and years to come.

Since my daughter has seen the Dino Dan DVDs, she’s gained an interest in learning more and about dinosaurs! I love when my children want to learn more about and ask questions about something new or old to them! You never know if you might have a future paleontologist on your hands!

Playtime of ‘Twas a Dinosaur is 60 minutes long. There are five episodes and tons of awesome bonus features. Overall we highly recommend checking this one out! And I’d recommend picking up a copy before Christmas so your kids can enjoy it all month long!
