Product Description

Before you can say "Blast Off!" the Little Einsteins(TM) are zooming through the sky in a new movie that's jam-packed with action, music, magic and fun. Besides Rocket, what's big, red and can fly? Meet Rocket's new friend: the mysterious Firebird! She sprinkles magical music power everywhere she flies, filling the world with beauty and joy. But when a mean ogre captures Firebird, it's up to Rocket, Leo, June, Quincy and Annie to travel all the way to Russia to set her free and bring music back to the world. Soar over the golden spires of a Byzantine palace. Discover St. Petersburg, and explore snowy Siberia, where you'll meet a freshwater baby seal and much more. Remember, only with your help -- singing, dancing, and playing instruments -- can the Little Einsteins complete their mission and save the day. Inspired by the music of Igor Stravinsky's "Firebird" ballet and filled with messages of teamwork, friendship and compassion, ROCKET'S FIREBIRD RESCUE is a magical journey you and your preschooler will want to experience together again and again!

The Little Einsteins are a talented group of musically-inclined, preschool-age friends who just happen to have a rocket ship named Rocket for a friend and a knack for helping those in need. In this animated adventure, it's up to Leo, Annie, Quincy, and June to preserve music around the world by traveling to Russia to free the magical Firebird from the grip of a music-hating ogre named Katschai. Set to themes from Igor Stravinsky's "Firebird" and featuring the art of Wassily Kandinsky, Faberge eggs, and Matryoshka Nesting Dolls, this full-length Little Einsteins adventure conveys the basic gist of Stravinsky's "Firebird" ballet in which the Firebird casts a spell of energetic dance and sleep upon the creatures of a magical kingdom. Prominent musical themes are emphasized by linking them to specific onscreen characters and their actions and basic musical terms like adagio and allegro are introduced while the Little Einsteins promote friendship, cooperation, and compassion and engage the active participation of young viewers by encouraging them to clap, sing, dance, and pretend to play musical instruments. The bonus episode "Rocket Soup" emphasizes teamwork and introduces orchestral instruments with the help of Dvorak's "Humoresque No. 7" and Paul Klee's painting "Moonrise." Engage the "Magic Mission Mode" and children can view "Rocket's Firebird Rescue" with animated pop-up facts. (Ages 3 to 7) --Tami Horiuchi

It's a great story and my grandson loves it.

Format: DVD
This is one of the best Little Einsteins DVDs yet for exposing kids to classical music. Twice as long as a regular television program, its 51-minute main feature, "Rocket's Firebird Rescue," will really make children familiar with Igor Stravinsky's "The Firebird."

Just about the perfect length for many youngsters' attention spans, the program tells the tale of the Firebird, a mythical crane that spreads music throughout Russia until a mean, magical ogre traps it. It also introduces kids to the painting "Improvisation" by Wassily Kandinsky, the amazing eggs of Carl Faberge, Russian nesting dolls, even St. Basil's Cathedral and the Baikal freshwater seal.

It's even better if you view it with a home theater set-up, as the Dolby Digital 5.1 soundtrack includes the kids' "Rocket" flying machine zooming around you as it travels.

The DVD also contains a regular episode of the Little Einsteins television series, 2007's "Rocket Soup," in which the kids fill up their transporter with its favorite food, a mix of cheese, peas, and jumping beans. It features Antonin Dvorak's catchy "Humoresque No. 7" (you'll know it when you hear it) and the painting "Moonrise" by Paul Klee.

There is just one bonus feature, "Magic Mission," which plays the main feature with "hidden" pop-up cards. When selected with a remote, each leads to an animated fun fact.

Format: DVD
"Rocket's Firebird Rescue" is a new full length adventure starring Disney's Little Einsteins. The film runs 51 minutes, with an additional bonus episode titled, "Rocket Soup". I'll admit that initially I was a bit put off by the "Little Einsteins" moniker. I don't like the implication that parents have to plunk their little darlings in front of a box in order to stimulate their minds. There are many products sold to insecure parents who want to give their child every advantage, all seem to have titles that include the names of famous thinkers, composers, or artists, or else words such as "brainy", "smarter", or "better". Though I'm not enamored of the show's name, "Little Einsteins" is quite fun and engaging.

There are four kids on the Little Einsteins team, each with a special talent. The kids are between four and six years old. Leo is the leader of the group and his special skill is conducting. Quincy plays a variety of musical instruments. June is a dancer, and Annie, the youngest member of the team, is a singer. The animation is really cute, and the characters come across as sweet but not saccharine.

In this film, the children introduce a Kandinsky painting, a Fabergé egg, Russian Nesting Dolls, and Igor Stravinsky's, "The Firebird" at the beginning of the story. The kids start reading the story of the Firebird to their friend Rocket, who is a sentient flying ship. They fly to Russia in order to rescue the captive Firebird. An evil ogre has captured her, and she can only sing very softly while she is captive. All the music of the area is subdued and the flowers are wilting. The kids must use their abilities to overcome various obstacles and vanquish the evil ogre.

An interesting component of the dvd is the interactive "Magic Mission" option.

My daughter normally loves The Little Einsteins, they are interactive and fun, with great music but after watching Rocket's Firebird Rescue she started having nightmares. She is terrified of the bats and the ogre and wakes up in the night crying and saying "The bats are going to get me!" I was really disappointed because I thought I could trust Einsteins to be age appropriate. I would strongly caution anyone buying this movie for young children not to, unless you want to be up at 3:00am "drumming" to make the bats disappear. There is too much drama and it is much too scary for young children.

My 2-year-old son is a huge fan of Little Einsteins, or, as he calls them, the "Steins!" He loves this movie and we let him watch it on rare occassions where we need to keep him occupied for a full hour. My son loves the movie and dances, sings and does everything else along with the movie, so clearly it engages him. I am sure he would give it five stars.

From the parent perspective, though, it seems like they made an hour long episode by repeating things seven times instead of three times. And each Little Einstein gets to show off his or her unique talent, instead of focusing on one person like they do on a TV episode. As a result, it feels like an overlong TV episode. Of course, the TV episodes are great, so this is not really a criticism other than to say that if you watch it with your child, you will likely get a little bored and start wishing they would move the story along. Like I said, the repitition does not bother my son, the intended audience, one bit.

Overall, if your child is a fan of the Little Einsteins, I am sure he or she will love this movie. But it is probably not one you will want to sit down and watch with your child over and over.

My son just turned 2 and this is is most favorite show. He tells everybody he meets about the firebird and the evil ogre Carzai (sp?). He pays very close attention and when it is over, he asks to see it again. He likes all little einsteins, but the fire bird is his favorite!
Beware, the song is very catchy and really gets stuck in your head. :)
