Ah, the dinosaur obsession!!! We've been here for 3 years now.

 

Netflix - the BBC "Walking with Dinosaurs" was a favorite for a loooong time. There's also a sequel with an allosaurus, I believe. Actually, I'm pretty sure we've now seen every single dinosaur thing on Netflix.

 

National Geographic has a gorgeous dinosaur encyclopedia. That was a winner for an Xmas present this year.

 

Magic Schoolbus has a kit and books.

 

There are lots of dinosaur kit type thingies on amazon. You can make a model skeleton, etc. type things. The dinosaur egg excavation was a hit around here a few times. (Messy summer project though unless you like small pieces of gravel and sand all over the place!)

 

Dinosaur stickers for your walls and hard floors... (Ask me what I tried peeling off the floor today. Go ahead. I dare you. lol)

 

Dover has awesome dinosaur coloring books.

My 4 yo really likes the book "Amazing Dinosaurs" by Dougal Dixon.  He also enjoyed the BBC video "Prehistoric Planet". 

 

ETA - Also, there is an easy reader series my son loved.  "The Day the Dinosaurs Died" was one of them.  There were several by that author in the same series

Dougal Dixon also has done an entire series on dinosaurs. The last 2 pages of every book is the same which was a little frustrating for DS but the information was solid. We spent a couple of months at the library reading them all. :)
