So cute!!! This was my childhood! A beautiful way to introduce kids to classical music, art, and travel! When we become parents, let’s keep this show’s legacy alive by showing this to our kids! I loved this, and I wish I could go back to being a kid again

The people giving negative reviews are wrong

This is an excellent and educational show for small children. My children both loved this series! The lyrics are corny, but who gives a shit? It’s for the KIDS. Not the teens. Not the adults. The KIDS. Of course, they will enjoy the music and learning about new things. Anyway, give this show an honest chance. It’s so cute.

Is It Any Good?

Kids say (41 ):

This series is a wonderful means to expose kids to art and music while involving them in stories about likeable characters solving interesting problems. The Little Einsteins' missions involve cute characters and intriguing situations, such as helping a fuzzy caterpillar find a musical tree so it can become a butterfly or guiding a little dragon kite to meet up with other dragon kites at the Great Wall of China. Kids will especially enjoy the character of Rocket, who's just as loveable as the others and capable of transforming into any vehicle shape to get a job done. Preschoolers love the nifty gadgets on Rocket, too, including a Grab Nabber, Drum Thumper, and Look-and-Listen scope.

With songs and dance, it not only holds the attention span of preschoolers, but it also sparks curiosity about beautiful pieces of art and music in their world. It's a refreshing change from today's cartoons. Bravo!
