Wild Kratts “BUGGING OUT” will be available on February 25, 2014. The DVD run time is approximately 55 minutes and its SRP is $9.99. In addition to featuring two fun-filled, laugh-out-loud adventures, the DVD also includes special features – PDF coloring pages and activities. My daughter has no interest in watching it, but I know just the little girl that will love it. My friend and contributor here at MomStart has a daughter that loves bugs. She had the opportunity to hold a tarantula and has loved spiders ever since. She even has a black widow spider costume that she loves to wear around the house. So this DVD is quickly crawling over to her house.
Join brothers and wildlife explorers Martin and Chris Kratt (creators of the award-winning WILD KRATTS, KRATTS’ CREATURES and Emmy-winning ZOBOOMAFOO) as they explore nature, meet up with cool creatures from around the world, and witness never-before-seen wildlife moments. The two episodes featured on this DVD – “Secrets of the Spider’s Web” and “Attack of the Tree Eating Aliens” – are filled with humor, excitement, and science!
WILD KRATTS transforms Martin and Chris Kratt into animated versions of themselves, allowing the real-life zoologists to visit wild animals in their little-seen habitats and to showcase key science concepts along the way. Geared toward kids ages 6 to 8, each episode of WILD KRATTS presents age-appropriate science inspired by the natural abilities of the animals that the Kratt brothers – and young viewers – meet. The series premiered on PBS KIDS in January 2011 and is part of PBS KIDS’ ongoing commitment to STEM – science, technology, engineering, and math – education for kids.
