How "Dakota & Friends" Came to be...
This is our story, and we are sticking to it!
RIGHT NOW, FOLKS, WE ARE OFFERING VIRTUAL PARTIES THAT YOU DO VIA ZOOM OR FACETIME!!! Contact Mr. Ed to book a Virtual Party! (More info below or call 704 223 0727)
Mr. Ed, Dominic and Drew traveled in time!
As curious students of History, Mister Ed, Dominic, and Drew wanted to visit the Renaissance Period. Something must have gone wrong with the Time Machine because they found themselves in the Late Cretaceous. There must have been a fire because they found many nests had been abandoned, and there were eggs lying on the ground unprotected. They gathered up some eggs and brought them into the future and that is where their first dinosaurs came from.
This is our story and we are sticking to it!
Dakota is born.
Dakota the Dakotaraptor is our first dinosaur and will always be our favorite!
Not willing to leave well enough alone the three have traveled back many times, and have gathered more eggs and brought them into the future so that children can see the dinosaurs.
More Friends Came Along.
Trixie, Trey, and Trouble, the Triceratops triplets are too cute!!! (But boy do they eat a lot!!!!!)

Why Choose "Dakota & Friends"?
We offer a service that no one else has!
Dakota and Friends can give your event something that no one else offers. Our life-like dinosaurs will leave kids of any age with the feeling that they actually spent time with these prehistoric wonders! Our one of a kind dinosaur show let's folks see a baby dino hatch from it's egg!
For Fairs, Festivals, Schools, Corporate events or just a birthday party for a kid who really loves dinosaurs, we offer the best value for your money. We can bring the museum to you for a fraction of the cost of a museum visit.
A lot of teachers and other educators ask us if we are educational. The answer is Yes!,...(but don't tell the kids!) We sneak our education in, in a way that the kids don't even feel it. We understand that if the kids are laughing and having fun we can teach them without them even knowing it happened! Our programs are based on whatever level the audience is at. Whether it's preschools or high school young adults, we have an educational program for any grade level.
