PBS is a great non-profit TV station that has been around since 1970. They provide not only top notch fun and educational children shows but adult ones as well. They provide shows that are engaging, full of educational information without being boring for our little ones. PBS is the only station I watch on regular TV and has all my kiddos favorites and mom and dad’s historical and dramatical shows. They have just released Wild Kratts: Wild Winter Creatures DVD on October 10th.
The great thing about this DVD is the bounty of information provided to our children while mainly being fun and enjoyful for our children. If you have never seen The Wild Kratts you should know this is based around two brother, Chris and Martin Kratt, who explore animals around the world via imaginative adventures and schemes by the villains of the show. Chris and Martin are two real life brothers who were also in the show Zoboomafoo and are part of the live action of the show. This DVD runs 106 minutes with four different episodes with our favorite villains Zach Varmitech and Donita Donata and new, awesome creatures of the Arctic, polar bears, Walrus and Musk Ox. I love that they don’t just give you information about the animals but discuss the environment and let children know how to avoid affecting the environment.
We received the Wild Kratts: Wild Winter Creatures! DVD and my kiddos who love this show were stoked by the animal choices in this DVD. From polar bears to Walrus to Musk Ox and the usual villains. I personally love Donita Donata the most but my kiddos love Zach. I love the smart sassy characters of Kiko and Aviva and jokey smarts of Jimmy. It was great how they didn’t limit animal showing to cartoons but live animals like the Snow shoe hares, river otters, meadow vole and white tailed deer. They discuss ways that animals survive the winter based on their body and also based on their activities. As usual the Kratt brothers lose track of time, get immersed in their animal adventures and have to be tracked by Aviva, Kiko and Jimmy. I love how despite what trouble they get into they don’t just leave things as they are but they fix it with the help of their team mates and succeed at helping their animal friends. This is a great show overall, funny and educational. What a great balance!
