Disney has done it again! On September 8th, Walt Disney Studios Home Entertainment released “Little Einstein’s Fire Truck Rockets Blastoff” on DVD! My boys put it in the DVD player as soon as it arrived. They loved it! I love that it’s a fun and educational show they will watch. It even kept me entertained. I love that it talks about helping others and exploring the world. This is a great DVD to own or give as a gift.

In this show, there is a never-before-seen episode “Fire Truck Rocket” and the Magic Mission viewing mode you can enjoy. The Little Einsteins go on a rescue mission to all corners of the world. First they go to rescue an adorable monkey from an erupting volcano on the tropical island of Java. To do this, they use all of Rocket’s rescue gadgets, including a rescue ladder, his rescue Spreader (jaws of life), and rescue Hose to cool down the volcano.

Then they head to France in “Melody the Music Pet,” where the Little Einsteins watch animals board a train that takes them as pets to new homes. One pet that stands out to them is Melody (the Music Pet). Melody needs to board the train but can’t find her golden ticket, so Leo and the team promise to help her find the missing ticket. The mission takes the team to 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 go to Monaco to 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 thanks to the Einsteins, he just might take home the Grand Prix trophy.

In “Mr. Penguin’s Ice Cream Adventure,” the team explores South America (the Patagonia region). In this episode, an ice cream train that is driven by Mr. Penguin breaks down on the way to his best friend’s birthday party. Rocket transforms himself into a train so he can pull the big load of ice cream. Afterwards, the team digs past a huge rock, puts a musical bridge back together, and head over the Andes Mountains.

With the Magic Mission Viewing Mode, viewers can use their remote to answer fun questions about color, shapes, and sizes.
