What happens in the show?

There’s a lady who loves to be at the train station. There are other people who say, ‘I don’t want to be on the train’. And there’s a dinosaur called Bitey who’s at the station all the time.


Describe the show in five words.

A surprise! Lots of characters.


Who was your favourite character and why?

I had two favourites: Bitey (how does he move around?) and the magician Marvelo. The magician was so clever.


Were there any characters you didn’t like?

The lady who kept dusting and brushing everyone.


What did you like most about the show?

I liked when Bitey walked up to some of the children. I wished Bitey would have come close to me.


What didn’t you like?

I didn’t like them leaving the station. Or saying that there were hundreds more dinosaurs when there was only one.


What did you think of the music?

It was good when they made up a rhyme. But I didn’t like the trumpet horn.


What did your grown-up think of the show?

She thought it was funny when Bertie took out a sandwich and ate it and the boy next to us kept saying, “I’m hungry! I’m hungry!”


Would you tell your friends to come and see the show?

Yes, I think they would like to see the friendly dinosaur.
