Review and Giveaway: Zula Patrol DVDs CLOSED

"The Zula Patrol” is a popular animated science-and-astronomy series for kids that airs Saturday mornings nationally on NBC. It features a gang of lovably wacky alien characters, who help teach kids interesting facts about science and astronomy.

We received two DVDs to review, "The Zula Patrol: Animal Adventures in Space” and “The Zula Patrol: Moons Mayhem”. Wyatt is really enjoying these new DVDs, and I love the educational feature of them. The Zula Patrol makes learning fun for kids, by using adventures to help them learn. Since watching the first DVD, Wyatt has asked to watch the second, and he now waits for the show to come on Qubo. I think this is definately a new favorite in our house.



Here is a little information about the DVDs.

The Zula Patrol: Moons Mayhem follows the intrepid team from Zula in six humor-filled stories that begin with a challenge, and end with a resolution, as they explore the fascinating, often volatile world of moons. The episodes include: Moon Struck, Blue Moon, Going Through a Phase, Moons Mayhem, Three Ring Gorga and Me, Myself and Io. It’s non-stop lunar adventure for The Zula Patrol, as they as they rescue a turbulent Venus, who is on a quest to acquire a moon of her own; discover the many moons of Jupiter during Jupiterfest; explore the composition of the surface of Earth’s moon; help save Bula from an awful Were-Mouse curse, and thwart Dark Truder’s nefarious plan to steal all the moons within the solar system.

In The Zula Patrol: Animal Adventures in Space!, the team explores how insects, reptiles, mammals, plants and rocks form and interact with each other. In Larvae or Leave Me (the first episode), Skip the grasshopper can’t find his friend Wriggly the caterpillar – until he discovers, with help from The Zula Patrol, that Wriggly has transformed into a beautiful butterfly! Four additional stories on the DVD are: Egg Hunt, There Goes the Neighborhood, Choosing Sides and Camp Worm. No job is too big for The Zula Patrol, as they search for stolen frog eggs, help restore life to a canyon ecosystem, solve the mystery of the missing honey, and tunnel through dirt with their worm comrades to help the trees grow – and end up thwarting a threatened “alien invasion” from another planet.


These DVDs can be purchased from Well Go USA and are priced at only $12.98 each. If your kid enjoys all things space, these DVDs are a must for your collection.

I think my stepson would like DARK TRUDER because he looks a little like Jabba the Hut.
