Overview

The all-new movie Little Einsteins - Rocket's Firebird Rescue tells the story of Leo, Quincy, Annie, June, and Rocket as they travel to Russia to help save Rocket's new friend, Firebird. Firebird is a mysterious creature who sprinkles magic everywhere she flies, bringing beauty and music to the world. When a heartless ogre captures Firebird, it's up to the Little Einsteins and Rocket to free the magical bird and bring music back to the world. Inspired by Igor Stravinsky's Firebird ballet, the movie presents classical music as an essential role in helping the Little Einsteins' complete their mission. Children interact, sing, and are encouraged to "make music every day" while taking a worldwide journey. The DVD includes a bonus feature, the "Magic Mission Viewing Mode," which allows the viewer to watch the feature with trivia interspersed throughout the movie.

Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - Donald Liebenson
From the pyramids to San Francisco's Golden Gate Bridge, the Little Einsteins further broaden thier horizons as they take off on more interactive musical missions from the animated Playhouse Disney series. In the title story, conductor Leo, dancer June, instrumentalist Quincy, and singer Annie board their trusty rocket to Egypt, where they seek the golden harp that will open a pyramid and free the music that is trapped inside. In "The Dragon Kite," the close-knit music-loving quartet is off to China to search for missing kites in time for the Great Kite Parade. Making its debut on DVD is the episode "Annie and the Little Toy Plane," in which Annie helps a playful purple plane rescue a green helicopter. Each we-need-you adventure encourages audience participation, whether it's patting along to a beat to help their rocket get off the ground, or using counting skills and color recognition to advance the Little Einsteins. Each episode features a classical theme (Brahms' "Hungarian Dance No. 5" in "Golden Pyramid"), as well as representations of artifacts or artistic masterworks. The series' unique look combines animated characters, computer-generated backgrounds, and images of actual architectural landmarks from around the world. This admirable series is instrumental in introducing youngsters to the fine arts. Bravo.

I bought this DVD three pack for my 3 and 1/2 year old and he loves it! He watches it over and over and I have to make him stop and do something else. I love that it is educational and I don't have to worry at all about the content. Little Einsteins introduces kids to classical music and art in a fun and engaging way that kids understand and enjoy. I love it that my 3 year old is now familiar with several pieces of classical music as well as some very famous paintings. My 6 year old will watch it occasionally, but it is definitely more for the preschool set. The 3 pack is the best deal I found, and worth every penny!
