Day 2 of Spring Break just ended, and I’m already dreading sending my daughter back to school next week. I miss having her home with me, and I can’t wait for this school year to end. We will be homeschooling next year, and I can’t wait to spend my days with both of my girls again!

This year I decided not to plan some big family trip or to schedule out our days. We’re going with the flow and enjoying our break. Yesterday we spent most of the day outside in the sunshine, but it left us all a little sunburned and drained today. This morning Ellie asked if we could have an indoor day, and I was perfectly happy with that. Sometimes we all need a day of lounging around, so we agreed on “Couch Potato Day” today.

We started off with a new DVD release available today from PBS Distribution, WILD KRATTS: PANDA-MONIUM.


If you have read any of my previous PBS reviews, you will already know my girls are huge “Wild Kratts” fans, and I’m a fan of the educational series myself. I’m thankful to have the opportunity to review one of their favorite shows and share our thoughts with you.Featuring Aubrey’s favorite animal, I knew WILD KRATTS: PANDA-MONIUM would be a big hit!

We curled up on the couch with a bowl of popcorn and watched Chris and Martin Kratt learn about the “amazing creature features” of giant pandas, red pandas, and other animals. We all agreed helping the lost red panda baby find her mother was the best part of the DVD, but my girls excitedly followed along with the adventures on all 4 featured episodes.

The 4 episodes on WILD KRATTS: PANDA-MONIUM are: 

Panda Power Up! 

While checking out the endangered giant panda, the Wild Kratts get stranded in the bamboo forests of China without having power for any of their vehicles or equipment. They must figure out how to ‘power up’ in time to help save the pandas, who are being turned into roboticized stuffed toys by the nefarious villain, Zach Varmitech. An ‘ancient panda secret’ just might lead to the creature power that will restart their engines and save the pandas.

Red Panda Rescue

Chris finds a little lost Red panda, but before she can be reunited with her mother, Zach steals her as a birthday present for Donita Donata. It’s Wild Kratts to the rescue!

The Colors of China

While hanging out with golden pheasants in China, Martin and Chris wonder how important color is for creatures. But when Donita Donata begins to steal animals and remove their color, they soon discover just how critical it is for survival. It’s a race to stop Donita and get color back into the creature world!

Snowy Owl Invasion

Martin and Chris are hanging out in China with their giant panda friend Stuffo when they receive reports of snowy owls showing up all over North America. Since these raptors live in the Arctic, it’s up to the Wild Kratts to solve the mystery of the snowy owl invasion!

The DVD run time is approximately 120 minutes and is available for $14.99

The Verdict:

The girls loved WILD KRATTS: PANDA-MONIUM so much they ended up watching it again while I cooked dinner. I think this DVD is perfect for children of preschool to elementary age who enjoy exploring nature and learning about animals. Isn’t that every child? WILD KRATTS fans definitely won’t be disappointed in this newest release! We have already ordered a couple more copies for upcoming birthday gifts!
