Dinosaur Train Hatchers & Cake Decorating Set Review

Are you ready for Easter? My son went to Grandma’s today to help dye Easter eggs, decorate cookies, watch “Hop” and more fun. Since he was gone, I had the chance to put together his Easter basket. (This way I won’t be stuck scrambling after he goes to bed tomorrow night.) He will have an Easter basket and hidden eggs to find on Easter morning.

hatchers_1 If you’re looking for a little something extra to add to your kids Easter baskets this year, this is something you’ll want to get. From the show “Dinosaur Train” you can find Hatchers. These are little eggs (the right size for Easter baskets) that grow and hatch when placed in water. Your kids will love watching their own special egg “hatch”. Plus they have a fun toy with one of their favorite Dinosaur Train characters. The eggs are easy to use, when placed in water they will start hatching within 24 hours and grow 4x their size.

We received the Dinosaur Train Cake Decorating Kit and Cupcake Rings. The kit came with several Dinosaur Train character decorations that are fun to put on a cake for a themed birthday, to dress up your Easter cake, or just for fun. And the cupcake rings can easily be added to cupcakes for a party, and then the party-goers can take the ring home as a little parting gift. You can find these at

Dinosaur Train, from the Jim Henson Company, can be found on PBS. Check their website for more about the show. And you can follow on Twitter and Facebook as well. And the biggest Dinosaur Train fans will be interested in the new Dinosaur Train Eggspress application available for iPhone, iPod and iPad for $2.99. Your kids will try to match dinosaur eggs and reunite dinosaur families, while learning about lots of dinosaur information.
