Whichever you decide to buy, your family will enjoy the stories of these adorable little dinosaurs as they experience life in and out of The Great Valley.



The group of friends manages to get themselves into some interesting dilemmas and meet new characters along the way. One of the funny ones is Chomper, a baby Tyrannosaurus Rex. Tyrannosauruses are referred to by the other dinos as “sharpteeth.” You can understand why!


Littlefoot is an adventurous Brontosaurus, Cera is a spoiled and bossy Triceratops, Ducky is a sweet little Saurolophus, Spike is a gentle Stegosaurus, and Petrie is a fidgety Pteranodon. Together they make a fun group of juvenile dinosaurs and who oftentimes cause a little stress for the elders.
