Dino Dan - ‘Twas A Dinosaur DVD and App (Review & Giveaway)

A new Dino Dan app for Apple iOS devises brings a mighty t-rex vividly to life using the packaging on NCircle Entertainment’s latest release “Dino Dan: ‘Twas a Dinosaur.”
Dino Dan is one of my kids favorites! With Dan's vivid imagination, you can't help but fall in love with his adventurous character. Each day is a different journey as he finds clues and facts about dinosaurs. His curiosity teaches kids to ask questions and to be passionate about the world around them. It is a wonderful series, and I am grateful to have this opportunity to share Dino Dan - 'Twas A Dinosaur DVD with you!
About the DVD:
The DVD gives "The Night Before Christmas" a uniquely Paleolithic spin, inviting kids to join 10-year-old protagonist Dino Danas he explores intriguing facts about dinosaurs while embracing the spirit of the season.  Now, thanks to the exclusive new Apple app for iPad, iPhone and iPod Touch devices, DVD viewers can also enjoy a holiday visit from their own true-to-life T-Rex.

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 theDino Dan - ‘Twas A Dinosaur” DVD and download the free Dino DanDino 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!

Buy It!
Available at NCircleEntertainment.com or a retailer near you, including Target, Walmart and Toys R Us!(Future Dino Dan DVDs from NCircle Entertainment will feature different dinosaurs from the hit children’s television series using the app!)
