Paleontologist in Training Costume
Perfect for Dino Dan fans
Is your child a paleontologist in training like Dino Dan? A Dino Dan costume is great for everyday role-play or as a Halloween costume. It's the perfect outfit for the birthday boy or girl at a Dino Dan birthday party too.
I'm Mom to two boys who are dinosaur mad and love to dress up as paleontologists and discover new dinosaurs, or go back in time and study and rescue dinosaurs. Our sandbox regularly turns into a dino dig and the kids have great fun as paleontologists.

Dino Dan Vest
The key part of a Dino Dan costume is a paleontology vest or utility vest. This kids Cargo vest from Backyard Safari is perfect. It has lots of pockets to store fossils and loops to hang geology field tools from.
The vest fits from age 5-12 (it has an adjustable strap at the back.) It's well enough made that it can be used for regular play and then worn for Halloween.

An Explorer Hat
An explorer hat or child's pith helmet is a great addition to a Dino Dan costume - just like a real paleontologist out on a dino dig in the heat.
Dinosaur Paleontologist Field Tools
Now we'll need to add some toy paleontology field tools for digging up fossils and cleaning them up. And Dino Dan likes to have his binoculars to hand to spot dinosaurus.
The Backyard Safari set below matches the Cargo vest above so they're a great option for a matching costume.
Dino Museum T-Rex Tooth

The National Geographic Kids Dinopedia makes a great field guide. It's up to date with the latest paleontology research and packed with great pictures and lots of facts. Ideal for identifying any dinosaurs your paleontologist in training might come across.
The outfit works well with a pair of cargo pants in cream or khaki, but most kids pants will work just fine.
