Animal Planet Dinosaur Hatch ‘Ems





Animal Planet Dinosaur Hatch ‘Ems


It seems like this summer has had us dinosaur obsessed. I’m not sure if it was due to our love of Jurassic World or just our pure love of all dinosaurs. When we first heard about Animal Planet Dinosaur Hatch ‘Ems we knew our family would just want them. What is more exciting than hatching eggs right inside of your own house. Not to mention there is always time to teach about dinosaurs. My daughter wants to know everything there is to know about dinos!


These colorful dinos hatch right out of their shells! Simply place the eggs in a container of water, and within 2 days, the eggshells will break slowly. Over the next few days, these lifelike creatures will start to grow, causing the eggs to crack and finally hatch… how egg-citing! Once hatched, keep your dino pet in water up to 3 weeks for continued growth, then remove to play with your surprise new friend!



dinoshatchemscardsEach series of Animal Planet Dinosaur Hatch ‘Ems include 3 eggs, ready to turn into a trio of lifelike dinosaurs, up to 10 times their original size! Series 1 includes: a fierce Triceratops, an earth-shattering Ankylosaurus, and a tremendous T-Rex. Series 2 features: a strong Stegosaurus, a mighty Spinosaurus and an awesome Apatosaurus.



Fun Fact Cards are included in every series, providing information on each species of dinosaurs. This allows children to learn as they play and know what they grow!

Reading is something I have always loved to do. As an adult and mom of three that definitely has not changed. I especially love to see a book come to life on the big screen. When I heard about Big Stone Gap, I could not wait to share the details and  trailer for the upcoming all-star ensemble film with you! Written and directed by Adriana Trigiani (The Shoemaker’s Wife), BIG STONE GAP is based on her best-selling novel of the same name. Picturehouse will release the film nationwide on October 9, 2015

Adriana Trigiani, in her debut as screenwriter/director, brings her best-selling novel BIG STONE GAP to the movies. BIG STONE GAP, shot entirely on location in Trigiani’s hometown, is the story of proud working people and their lives in a coal mining town nestled in the southwest corner of Virginia, deep in the Appalachian Mountains. Ave Maria Mulligan (Ashley Judd), the town’s self-proclaimed spinster, has resigned herself to a quiet life of singlehood and being useful. She works in her family’s pharmacy, delivers the prescriptions herself, and directs the town’s annual outdoor drama until one day she learns of a long-buried family secret that changes the course of her life forever.
