LITTLE EINSTEINS: RACE FOR SPACE
Studio: Buena Vista Home Entertainment
BY KEVIN CARR
Almost three years ago, the television show “Little Einstiens” debut on Playhouse Disney. It features four young artists and explorers – Leo, Quincy, Annie and June – as they fly around in their rocket ship to learn about music and history.
Each episode is wrapped around a specific composer and artist. The music carries the characters through the show, and the artist provides the style of the background and story. “Little Einsteins” is a great educational show for the younger viewer. It’s not overly simplified, and it has a grand scope rarely seen in kids’ shows.
The latest release is “Race for Space,” which focuses on space and flying machines. They travel to Machu Pichu in China and also have to save Three Little Piggies when their airplane loses control.
As an educational show for kids, “Little Einsteins” and the new release of “Race for Space” covers multiple subject areas, not just the arts. A healthy dose of geography and history are included in the concepts.
The DVD comes with three episodes, including the new “Treasure Behind the Little Red Door.” There’s also bonus shorts from “Lou and Lou: Safety Patrol.”
