In the afternoon on the weekends when the Enginerd is home we usually gather as a family and while he is control of the remote often we look for something on Netflix the whole family can enjoy. Recently we discovered a new show to add to our list, Dinotrux!
Right now, DreamWorks has allowed a special 11-minute preview of the show! You too can get an idea of what the fun is about!
I loved this! As a matter of fact I think we all did and as my little Rascal grows I wouldn’t hesitate to let him watch the episodes again and again. Even the blossoms like it also. The Enginerd likes it too. The first episode definitely had an Aesop’s Fables flare and we even discussed the Mouse and the Lion fable after watching it and getting to know Ty Rex and his friendships or lack there of. A great discussion starter on character qualities too.
When an erupting volcano forces Ty, an enormous Tyrannosaurus Rex combined with a megaton excavator, to flee his home valley suddenly, the tough but charismatic hero finds himself charging into an unfamiliar crater full of his favorite food: ore.But the new landscape holds even more wondrous discoveries: other species of Dinotrux, a race of resourceful reptiles combined with hand tools called the Reptools, and a territorial bad guy with a nasty temper named D-Structs.Ty’s first ally turns out to be a courageous, brainy Reptool named Revvit (lizard + rotary drill). Their unlikely bond leads to the creation of a community and shows how a friendship can change the world. As they meet other creatures who aren’t like them and sometimes don’t like them, they make it work. Ty leads the crew and convinces his new cratermates that they can find a way to work and live together.Watch all ten episodes of Dinotrux Season One exclusively on Netflix!
