Riff is a six-year-old orange Hadrosaur who is B.J. and Baby Bop's cousin. One of his big interests is music and he is known for being able to imitate sounds really well. When he is excited, his stripes on his crest light up and
blink quickly. He loves marching band and parade music as much as Barney does.

Riff also likes to invent things, as shown in the video Let's Go to the Firehouse.



Adam Brown and Jared Harris are the current actors who play Riff in the costume on Barney & Friends.


Michaela Dietz has provided Riff's voice since his debut.


  • The reason Riff was created was not only because it had been thirteen years since they created the last dinosaur (B.J
    .), but also to add some musical diversity to the series.
  • Riff made his first appearance in the video Let's Make Music, but he was "officially" introduced on the show in Welcome, Cousin Riff. On the episode, BJ announces that "Cousin Riff is a part of the family". He made his first live appearance in Barney Live - The Let's Go Tour (after months of the show being on tour).
  • Unlike Baby Bop & BJ who started out tall & shrunk, Riff was always small.
