Educational shows full of fun and adventure are huge hits in our house, and I’ve got a new one to share with you today. The Wild Kratts have a new DVD out that hit shelves on January 5th, and it’s definitely a must have if you have a little Wild Kratts fan in your household. My oldest daughter and my nephew are both practically obsessed with Wild Kratts, and “Wild KRATTS: AUSTRALIAN ADVENTURES” is the DVD to watch while unwinding from a long day at school right now. 



The “WILD KRATTS: AUSTRALIAN ADVENTURES” released on DVD January 5 from PBS Distribution. The DVD run time is approximately 60 minutes, and has a SRP of $12.99. This DVD is all about the Australian Outback, and features 3 episodes including one bonus episode from Wild Kratts

Koala Balloon”- Martin and Chris must protect a young koala stranded in the Australian Outback, and help him get back to his eucalyptus forest habitat. On their quest to return the adorable animal home, the brothers discover lots of interesting facts about how animals are specialized to their own environment. 

Kickin’ it with the Roos”- When Chris and Martin meet up with a mob of red kangaroos, they get their car keys stolen by a joey and have to figure out how to get them back from the tricky little guy.  As they jump into the life of the roos to search for the missing keys, the brothers realize that animals live in different kinds of social groups and they have important behaviors that keep the group together and safe.  But everybody wonders just how safe this search has become, when Chris and Martin get tangled up in a kickboxing match with the dominant male and caught in the middle of a dingo attack.

Platypus Café” (BONUS!)- On a kayaking expedition in Australia, the brothers encounter one of the world’s most unusual creatures: a platypus mother with her eggs.  But unscrupulous endangered animal chef, Gourmand, plans on adding the platypus eggs to his menu. Chris and Martin must harness the special electromagnetic “sixth sense” of the platypus to save the eggs.
