Have you ever watched Wild Kratts on PBS Kids? I stumbled upon it one day when I was home with Peyton when she was little. We were both drawn in. I liked how the two main characters in the cartoon are also in the episodes as regular people. Plus there’s a lot of educational information in each episode. Children are learning a ton about animals, their behaviors, habitats and environments. Peyton loves it because she loves animals, learning about new animals and seeing the Wild Kratts suits turn them into different animals.
Wild Kratts Wild Reptiles was released at the end of August. Inside this DVD you will find around 120 minutes of educational entertainment. Included in this set are the following episodes –
“The Gecko Effect”
There’s a mystery to be solved, as the Wild Kratts team wonders how a gecko lizard climbs up smooth surfaces and can even climb upside down. The gang uses their Miniaturizer to shrink down and discovers it’s all about physics: all objects have electrical charges that attract one another and the gecko’s marvelous toe pad structure charges so much that they can walk on surfaces as smooth as glass. But in the meantime, Zach has stolen their Miniaturizer and imprisoned them in a glass terrarium. Martin and Chris activate the new gecko powers of their Creature Power Suits and must retrieve the Miniaturizer before Zach shrinks all the animals in the creature world.
A pop creature quiz challenge about the differences between crocodiles and alligators turns into a full-blown “crocogator” contest to find out what actually is different about these two similar creatures.
After the Tortuga crash lands in the Sonoran Desert, Koki discovers that the Tellurium crystals have run out of power and they need a new supply. Martin and Chris volunteer to go out into the desert to find this important source of energy and discover more than they were expecting!
“Chameleons on Target”
Aviva’s special ring chip invention is stolen by a mysterious lemur! Chris and Martin set off after it, with a little help from the amazing creature powers of the chameleon.
Peyton loves watching the Wild Kratts and couldn’t wait to get her hands on this DVD. Check your local listings to watch other Wild Kratts episodes.
