What parents need to know

Parents need to know that this DVD is meant for very young children. The kids appear spacey and they talk to the camera a lot, using high-pitched voices that are no doubt meant to get the attention of their viewers.

Great to stimulate interest in music and travel

The shows feature art and music appreciation but I love the way they travel. My 4 year old daughter wants to see all the places they visit and knows some basic... Continue reading

What's the story?

DISNEY'S LITTLE EINSTEINS: TEAM UP FOR ADVENTURE features three episodes of the TV show. In, "How We Became the Little Einsteins: The True Story," toddler Leo, Annie, Quincy, and June go on their first adventure in Rocket, the bright red rocket ship they travel in. In "I Love to Conduct," a bald eagle flies away with Leo's baton and the kids set out to find it. The third show, "Rocket Safari," features a trip to Africa where, among other adventures, Rocket stops a waterfall to help wildebeests cross a river. Via their adventures, the Little Einsteins teach kids about music. Each story features the work of a different composer --Antonin Dvorak, Edvard Grieg, and Nikolay Rimsky-Korsakov -- and the kids fly around in Rocket with beautiful music guiding them. Musical terms, such as staccato and libretto, are taught during their adventures, and the Einsteins ask kids at home to yell out the terms at various points in the story.

Is it any good?

It seems a big stretch to call these kids "Einsteins." They know musical terminology, but their actions are common sense (that is, when they make sense at all) and it's probably not great for real kids to think they're geniuses just for using good judgment. However, aside from the possible side effect of precociousness, the show is entertaining and harmless, and kids will probably love watching Rocket go on its adventures.

Talk to your kids about ...

  • Families can talk about music and travel. Which songs make you want to dance? Which songs make you feel relaxed and sleepy? If you could go anywhere in the world, where would it be? Why? What would you hope to see when you got there? What would you need to bring with you?
