On July 10th, 2018 PBS Distribution released the Wild Kratts: Adventures on the African Savannah DVD. PBS is a network I can trust for my children to watch and get educational content layered in fun with characters that at times even appeal to me as a parent. Wild Kratts is one of my husband and son’s favorite show to share together. They always have a balance between animation and real life animal content that brings learning and awareness of Earth’s wildlife to their lives.
I love the Wild Kratt brothers and feel they are very genuine and engaging in their love of nature and teaching about animals to young children. I remember as a kid watching their show Zoboomafoo and it is great to see the love that Chris and Martin Kratt have in a new show that appeals to my children now. Our family enjoys not only the animations and lively voices of the characters but real-life presentation of the animals introduced in each episode in their natural habitats and even funny reactions like the elephant getting mud all over them on this DVD. My children enjoy the episodes that have villain storylines as well as those that don’t and are just fun. They always want to know more about the animals presented and enjoyed the vast number of animals presented in this DVD, a lot more than usual.
We received this awesome DVD and my son and daughter loved it! It contained two episodes, one where they both start off as blades of grass and slowly work their own path up the food chain. They loved this episode because of the various changes by Chris and Martin, from grass to gazelle to Python to lion and others. They love learning about new animals, very rarely are their repeats and when they are it is accompanied by new details about how they live or survive. They loved Jimmy’s humorous smashing of his fingers each time he put up the animal the brothers had just changed into and how Chris kept trying to get touched by a cheetah. The second episode revolved around Martin and Chris’s argument on whether an Elephant or Rhino is stronger. Both have their strengths and were well portrayed but the funnies part was when the real life Kratt brothers were covered in mud when getting friendly with an elephant taking a mud bath. My children kept wanting to re-play that over and over.
