The Jim Henson Company has appointed RC2 Corporation as the global master toy licensee for the upcoming animated series DINOSAUR TRAIN. Under the multi-year agreement, RC2 Corporation's Learning Curve Brands will feature a line of preschool products that will debut in the last half of 2010 and bring to life the rich and detailed world of the series.
DINOSAUR TRAIN, created for 3-6 year old children and currently in production for PBS KIDS, features a world of dinosaurs and prehistoric lands, all connected by a colorful train line known as the Dinosaur Train. Each episode is shown through the eyes of Buddy, a preschool-aged Tyrannosaurus Rex, who, along with his adoptive family of Pteranodons, goes for adventures on the Dinosaur Train to discover and visit with all kinds of dinosaurs while learning the basic concepts of natural science, natural history and paleontology.
DINOSAUR TRAIN, produced by The Jim Henson Company, is co-produced with Singapore animation company BIG Communications, with the participation and assistance of the Singapore Media Development Authority. U.K. production and financial support is being provided by Ingenious Media.
