Kids don't always have the best role models these days and it takes a certain show to really win over their hearts as well as entertain them. Parents are looking for children shows that don't corrupt their children's minds but mold them to get them ready for the world they are going to be growing up in. Parents want their kids to have a good time but it is also essential that they learn something at the exact same time. While I may not have children of my own just yet; I'll admit that you have my full agreement when you say that kid shows need to be fun and also educational. We can't expect them all from the start to be "Little Einsteins" can we?
June, Quincy, Leo, and Anna are the four children that are looking to always enjoy their time each day but learn something along the way. Adventures for the kids range as far as their imaginations can possibly take them and it helps that they have a magical vehicle they call Rocket. No matter what type of vehicle their journeys call for, Rocket can transform into it and take them on their way. Dealing mostly in the worlds of music and art, the Little Einsteins' group makes sure to help someone solve a problem in any way they possibly can. Each episode focuses on a particular piece of famous music which is played numerous times and a world renowned piece of art done by a popular artist. This method sort of gets kids associated with the cultural worlds of music and art while also trying to help others. One of the awesome things about this collection of four episodes is that they also incorporate zoology and geography in as well broadening children's minds even more.
Having seen a great amount of this series thanks to having plenty of kids around with my nieces, nephews, and friends always over; these four episodes sort of stand out to me as some of the better ones. It goes back to the fact that there are new subjects brought into the learning curve so that kids can keep up with the art and music, but also see other parts of the world through maps and animals. That is one of the things that has always made me see Wonder Pets as a show that is good for kids because it teaches them about the differences in the world. It allows them to see multiple races while also knowing that there places other than their home areas to explore and one day visit.
One of the great things about Little Einsteins is that it does what a lot of children's shows these days are doing and it's getting the kids involved. Being interactive is a huge learning tool and by having the children answer questions out loud or mimic certain gestures suggested to them; they're doing a lot more then just watching TV. Little Einsteins is fun, full of energy, and educational in much more then the common ways of letters and numbers making it a must see for all young children.
~ Whale Tale: The magical Rocket has made friends with a humpback whale, but the little one can't stay away from his family so he has to leave with them. Sadness arrives though as Rocket misses his friend and brings about a trip to the Great Barrier Reef with the kids in order to reunite them. Meeting up with numerous sea creatures along the way; the kids learn that sometimes soothing music is the best way to find your friends.
~ Duck, Duck, June: June has a fantastic time watching a mother duck interact with her baby ducklings and enjoys it so much that she decides to try and sound like mama duck. A problem arises though when her imitation is too good and one of the baby ducks decides to follow her instead. Together the group must work their way through a creepy forest and other scary situations to get the baby duck to his family in the Great Lakes.
~ Jump For Joey: The group decides to head with Rocket out to Australia for the Animal Talent Show and end up meeting a lonely little Joey (baby kangaroo) along the way. The Joey has forgotten all about the talent show he was to partake in at the Sydney Opera House and needs to get there fast so the kids will do all they can to help him.
~ Little Elephant's Big Parade: A huge elephant festival brings the kids and Rocket to India so that they can enjoy in all the fun, but there is a problem as always. One particular elephant is too small to partake in everything and he wishes he was big enough like everyone else. The kids know that some magic peanuts will help their new friend grow big and strong to participate, but they need to find them before it is too late and the festival is over.
