Songs about Dinosaurs - Dino Songs
A collection of dinosaur songs for kids. Songs about dinosaurs that is. Not songs by dinosaurs ;-) We had no idea how many great songs had been made about dinosaurs. We do now, and we'd like to share the best dino songs.
We had a lot of fun creating this! Our two boys, aged 2 and 3.5 are mad about dinosaurs.
The boys have had very different reactions to music. Once he could speak, my older boy (currently 3.5) would often say 'no noise' when music came on that he didn't like (which was a lot initially). My younger son (now 2) on the other hand has been less choosy. But one thing they both have in common is that the first songs that they have sung have been dinosaur related. And now they both love music. And dinosaurs. So what could be better than dinosaur music!
We'll share the first dinosaur songs that the boys sang and look at some favourites that we've added to the list and ask you to vote for your favourite. Hope you enjoy this as much as we do.
I rather like this tune by Biscuithead & the Biscuit Badgers. Very catchy, apologies if you find yourself singing this for the rest of the day! And what a cool video.
Paleo Pirates by the Hipwaders - Added 17 July 2011
The latest dinosaur song we've found is just brilliant and we love this video too. Paleo Pirates by the Hipwaders will have you singing along. Wonderfully silly and imaginative. Kids who love dinosaurs will really enjoy this and Playmobil pirates too, superb!
Paleo Pirates is a track on Hipwaders' Educated Kid album:

I'm a huge Johnny Cash fan and since having children I've discovered his brilliant music for children. We love Johnny Cash's Dinosaur Song. "Playing tag with your Iguanodon", classic.

Lone Dinosaur from Land Before Time - My preschooler's first song
My older son's first song was "Long Dinosaur" at about 2.5. Just those two words over and over again at increasing volume. This is his rendition of the Lone Dinosaur song from Land Before Time VI: The Secret of Saurus Rock. Land Before Time often refers to 'long-necks' so I can see where he was coming from. We watched the 'Littlefoot' films a lot when he was very small (and still do now). They are superb, with excellent music and very watchable by adults. Now 3.5, he still sings 'Long Dinosaur' when he's happy, especially on car journeys, and his little brother joins in too. Very entertaining (well for a few minutes!).
Land Before Time
My kids are big fans of Land Before Time. These animated stories are very well done and suitable for little kids. And the music is good too. My boys often sing along to their favorites. They have watched each movie quite a few times ...
Dinosaur King Opening Theme Tune - My toddler's first song
For my younger son, having a big brother has been an influence. His first song is the theme from Dinosaur King, he started singing this at about 22 months. He hadn't really been around that often when his big brother was watching Dinosaur King, but it is very catchy.
"Dinosaur King [it's what you want to] be,
Dinosaur King [it's your] destiny".
The middle bits are mumbled in an I-don't-know-what-this-bit-is-but-that-won't-stop-me way, but the rest is very clear. He knows it's entertaining and will sing into the microphone on the kids keyboard we have for effect.
Avoid this show until your kids are about 7 if you can. The kids in it are rather annoying. We didn't realize this before letting the kids see it and of course they loved it. It is educational too though.
Dinosaur Song from Big Green Rabbit
This is just superb, though not necessarily scientifically accurate.
Diego Dinosaur Rescue DVD
This Diego DVD has some good dinosaur songs. The boys love to get up and 'Stomp like a dinosaur'.
