"Gift of the Dinos" is the first half of the nineteenth episode from the eleventh season of Barney & Friends.

Plot

Barney and his friends are decorating the caboose for Christmas when Barney decides to plan a "Secret Santa" game. Everyone has to buy or make a gift for the friend whose name they have drawn. BJ hopes for a Major League Baseball mitt to go with his baseball, while Riff hopes for some drum sticks for his drum. Before long, both BJ and Riff are struggling with getting gifts for one another. So, BJ decides to trade his baseball in order to get drumsticks for Riff, and Riff does the same with his drum to get BJ a baseball mitt. Barney comes back as he dressed as Santa Claus and the group gets a Christmas tree. The others open their gifts and soon BJ and Riff are disappointed, because, despite getting the gifts they wanted, they had to trade their favorite things to do so. Barney reminds them that it's not about getting gifts, but giving them. To get their mind off their disappointment, Barney and the others take them out to hear some carollers. Barney still happens to have a few more gifts in his "Santa bag," including BJ's baseball and Riff's drum. All's well that ends well in the park, as the purple guy and his friends sing "We Wish You a Merry Christmas".
