My daughters love Wild Kratts on PBS Kids. It is also one of my favorite shows to watch because they really do learn a ton about different animals as well as their habitats. It is a great show for little ones and is on my Top 5 Kids Shows List – hands down! We are actually going to see Wild Kratts Live this summer and cannot wait! I know it will be a blast and something that the whole family will love. I must say, I have actually learned things from watching Wild Kratts. It is very educational – and fun! The latest Wild Kratts DVD, Super Sprinters, will be available on June 23rd. I was lucky enough to get a sneak peak copy and I know it will be a huge hit with all kiddos. In this DVD you will learn all about the fastest creatures in the world – the cheetah and the Peregrine falcon. My 3.5 year old now runs around asking if she is as fast as a cheetah. Pre-order your copy here.
In each episode of WILD KRATTS, creature teachers Chris Kratt and Martin Kratt take kids and their families along on extraordinary animal-powered adventures. The show transforms the Kratt Brothers, creators of the award-winning KRATTS’ CREATURES and Emmy-winning ZOBOOMAFOO, into animated versions of themselves, allowing the real-life zoologists to visit wild animals in their little-seen habitats and showcase key science concepts along the way. WILD KRATTS airs weekdays on PBS KIDS (check local listings). The episodes included on this DVD are listed below.
Chris and Martin announce that no creature or vehicle can travel as fast over the rough and tumble African savannah as the cheetah. Aviva takes the challenge and declares she will build a ground racer that can run even faster than a cheetah. Of course Zach wants to prove that he is a better inventor than Aviva and joins the race. The team, inspired by the cheetah, “revs up” to explore the different functions required for speed to build a cheetah racer and win the race.
The Kratt brothers are itching 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 the rest of the Wild Kratts team challenges them to find the falcon in the city instead of in the wild, and Chris’ Creature Power Suit is accidentally activated with Pigeon Powers! But then they discover that Zach is sending his Zachbots to clean off a building that has a Peregrine falcon nest! Martin and Chris must activate their Peregrine falcon powers and harness the force of gravity to pull off a high flying creature rescue!
