Travel ?Round the World On A Rescue Adventure with the Little Einsteins

BURBANK, Calif., June 24, 2009 ? Join the Little Einsteins as they embark on four rescue-themed adventures in LITTLE EINSTEINS: FIRE TRUCK ROCKET?S BLAST OFF premiering on Disney DVD September 8, 2009. In this latest installment of fascinating adventures that includes a never-before-seen episode and the Magic Mission viewing mode, the Little Einsteins set out on rescue missions that take place in all corners of the world.

In never-before-seen episode Fire Truck Rocket, it?s Rocket?s latest
transformation: Fire Truck Rocket. The Einsteins rush to rescue an adorable monkey from an erupting volcano on the tropical island of Java. They will need all of Rocket?s rescue gadgets including his rescue Spreader (jaws of life), rescue Ladder and rescue Hose to cool down the rumbling volcano.

Other episodes include Melody the Music Pet which features the Little Einsteins in France, watching animals board the special train that takes pets to their new homes. One particular cuddly creature stands out ? Melody, the Music Pet. However, Melody can?t find her golden ticket for the train. Leo and team promise to help Melody find her missing ticket, and the mission takes them over Monet?s famous painting of lily pads, through the French countryside and to the top of the Eiffel Tower in Paris.

In Carmine?s Big Race, the Little Einsteins are in Monaco at a grand prix to cheer for Quincy?s friend Carmine, the music car. The other cars don?t think Carmine has what it takes to win the race, but with the help of the Einsteins, he just might take home the Grand Prix trophy. The team explores the Patagonia region of South America in Mr. Penguin?s Ice Cream Adventure. When an ice cream train being driven by Mr. Penguin to his best friend?s birthday party breaks down, Rocket transforms himself into a train to pull the big load of ice cream. Afterwards, the team must dig past a huge rock, put a musical bridge back together and chug over the Andes Mountains.

The Magic Mission Viewing Mode let viewers use their remote to answer fun questions about colors, shapes and sizes.

Playhouse Disney has released another DVD Disney Little Einsteins Fire Truck Rockets Blastoff, Rocket to the Rescue based on its animated television series Little Einsteins. Four children, aged four to six, are off to far-flung locations on adventure missions to help save the day. Their transformable “Rocket” takes them anywhere and everywhere.

Leo, the group’s leader loves conducting. June likes to dance. Quincy loves music and instruments but is afraid of the dark. Annie loves animals, especially dolphins and horses just NOT spiders. The stories “Fire Truck Rockets Blastoff”, “Melody the Music Pet”, “Carmine’s Big Race”, and “Mr. Penguin’s Ice-Cream Adventure” take them to Java, France, Monaco, and the Andes Mountains.

“Fire Truck Rockets Blastoff” has not previously been released. I’m sure that kids will enjoy this one. The Little Einsteins discover that a volcano is erupting in Java and a monkey is in great danger. They fly there in Rocket. Rocket becomes a fire truck with gadgets to save the day. Its rescue Spreader, rescue Ladder, and rescue Hose take care of things.

These cartoons are age and content appropriate for preschool children. Not only is it educational, it is fun. This video encourages viewer interaction. Two mission modes for children ages 2-3 and 4-6 are as good as the show. Its Magic Mission Viewing Mode uses a remote to teach colors, shapes, and sizes.

About Little Einsteins

Originally created as a television series specifically for preschoolers in 2005, Disney Little Einsteins was developed with child development experts and musicians.

He?s five years old and especially likes the trumpet and violin. Quincy tells great jokes as well! June is six years old and loves dancing.

  1. Christine,

    I like the ppositive and equal treatment of boys and girls.  It’s a shame that the school years and people change that.
