PBS Kids has been a trusted source of quality entertainment for decades, so I was excited when they asked me if I would like to review some of their latest releases! I was sent Wild Kratts: Super Sprinters and Caillou Helps Out. Here are the synopses:
Wild Kratts: Super Sprinters
Chris and Martin think that cheetahs can travel faster than any other creature or vehicle over the rough African savannah. Aviva takes this as a challenge, as does archenemy Zach Varmitech, and they both compete to build a ground racer that can run even faster than a cheetah. All that speed makes the Kratt brothers want to fly with the world’s fastest animal, the Peregrine falcon, which can hit top speeds of 240 mph. But their efforts are side-tracked when they find out that Varmitech and his Zachbots are threatening to destroy a Peregrine falcon’s nest of chicks, located on a city building, rather than in the wild. Can Martin and Chris activate their powers and harness the force of gravity to pull off a high flying creature rescue?
Calliou Helps Out
Caillou loves to help out! From helping his dad make pizza to learning the importance of tidying up the classroom, Caillou realizes that lending a hand and working together makes everything easier and more fun! Caillou Helps Out DVD features 7 inspiring stories including “Emma’s Extra Snack” where Caillou learns that while his friend Emma has diabetes, it doesn’t stop her from participating in all her favorite activities!
Wild Kratts is a show that I’m so glad we were reintroduced to! My daughters love the real-life animal segments as well as the animated parts, and they learn so much from Martin and Chris. I can’t even count how many times they have asked to watch this DVD since it arrived, even though it’s only 2 episodes. I know that Caillou can be a divisive character for parents: we’ve never watched him but the children of a good friend of mine just love him, so I passed this DVD along to them and it’s been a hit!
Wild Kratts: Super Sprinters and Caillou Helps Out are both available at Target and many other retailers.
