Head Down Under with Chris and Martin Kratt in their newest adventure: Wild Kratts: Australian Adventures - now available on DVD from PBS Distribution.

Wild Kratts: Australian Adventures includes three episodes of the PBS KIDS hit series Wild Kratts, one of which is a bonus story! From exploring how a thorny devil drinks water to learning about a koala’s favorite food, kids can join the Kratt Brothers as they travel throughout Australia and provide insight into some amazing and unique animals.

In the first two episodes on this DVD, the Kratt Brothers explore the Australian Outback. In “Koala Balloon,” the brothers find a stranded koala in the desert. In order to help the koala the brothers work to get their new friend back to its eucalyptus forest habitat. In “Kickin’ it with the Roos,” the brothers are motoring through the Australian Outback in the createrra looking for red kangaroos. When the brothers finally locate a mob of red kangaroos, they run into trouble when the keys to the createrra are stolen by a joey. This episode also features two fascinating birds – a kookaburra and a wedge-tailed eagle!

In the bonus episode on this DVD, “Platypus Café,” the brothers learn about one of the most unusual animals in the world – the duck-billed platypus. In order to get to know this creature, Martin and Chris use the miniaturizer to shrink and enter a platypus burrow.

Wild Kratts: Australian Adventures is now available to purchase at most major retailers nationwide in addition to online at Amazon. The DVD run time is approximately 60 minutes and its SRP is $12.99.

Episode Guide:

“Koala Balloon”

Martin and Chris must protect a young koala stranded in the Australian Outback, and help him get back to his eucalyptus forest habitat. On their quest to return the adorable animal home, the brothers discover lots of interesting facts about how animals are specialized to their own environment.

“Kickin’ it with the Roos”

When Chris and Martin meet up with a mob of red kangaroos, they get their car keys stolen by a joey and have to figure out how to get them back from the tricky little guy.  As they jump into the life of the roos to search for the missing keys, the brothers realize that animals live in different kinds of social groups and they have important behaviors that keep the group together and safe.  But everybody wonders just how safe this search has become, when Chris and Martin get tangled up in a kickboxing match with the dominant male and caught in the middle of a dingo attack.

BONUS ADVENTURE - “Platypus Café”

On a kayaking expedition in Australia, the brothers encounter one of the world’s most unusual creatures: a platypus mother with her eggs.  But unscrupulous endangered animal chef, Gourmand, plans on adding the platypus eggs to his menu. Chris and Martin must harness the special electromagnetic “sixth sense” of the platypus to save the eggs.

Our Thoughts:

I hadn't seen this show before on PBS Kids so I was happy to be introduced to it. The Wild Kratts are such an engaging and fun pair and making learning fun along the way while teaching children above the wildlife they encounter. Definitely a fun show for our kids!
