“Dino Dan, from award-winning producer, Sinking Ship Entertainment, is now playing across 85 countries, and we’re very delighted to introduce the series to Finland, a vital market for children’s programming,” said Abraham.
Production for the second series of the show began in March 2012 for Nick Jr. and broadcasters around the globe.
