Zula Patrol Review and Giveaway

I'm not sure if I should be excited or dismayed that my 6 year old has learned more from some DVD's that he has at school thus far this school year!?!? But for now I'll go with being excited about these DVDs. We'd sort of seen Zula Patrol on Saturday mornings so when I was contacted to review them I wasn't sure how they'd go over. But I have to say I was pleasantly surprised by how the boys reacted to them.

DVD Synopses:

The Zula Patrol: Moons Mayhem follows t he 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.

The Zula Patrol features a gang of lovably wacky alien characters including stalwart Captain Bula, brainiac Professor Multo, feisty hot-doggin' space pilot Zeeter, the amazing space pet Gorga, and twin flying explorers Wizzy & Wigg. They take kids on a roller coaster fun ride across the Universe, helping them discover interesting facts about science and astronomy in the process.


The DVDs take learning to whole new level. I seriously don't know of anything else out there like this. These DVDs are for children ages 4 and up. And it was interesting to see how my boys reacted differently to them. Bryan seemed to like the cute characters. While I'll admit it didn't hold his attention, it obviously isn't geared towards his age and well, he watches plenty of Mickey etc! Johnny watched them pretty much like any other cartoon and just enjoyed the story. But Timmy pulled everyone ounce of information he could out of them. He soaked in the information in and then spewed it all over my husband when he got home. It was pretty freaking cool. He probably didn't get every fact right, but he remembered way more than I did.

I think the makers of the Zula Patrol have hit the nail on the head and I hope they'll continue to make great quality DVD's on even more topics because we'll be looking for them!!!
