Highly recommend REALLY WILD ANIMALS!
Camille Claudel
They look dated at this point, but I guess the kids don't really notice or care.
L. Lane
It's cheesy, but the images are great.

Spectacular photography and great music written by Alan O'Day. I watch this one over and over and I love it every time. It's really made for kids, but I think adults will like it also. It's worth buying. I love the opening song about Lions and "Stripes" written for the zebras. The closing song "The heart that beats in Africa" is awesome.

We originally got this DVD as part of a set for our 3 year old son. He absolutely loved all four of the DVDs in the original set National Geographic's Really Wild Animals Gift Set, but this one particular DVD got cracked somehow after we'd had it about 6 months. I thought, oh well, he has about 50 DVDs, he won't miss one. About a month passed, and I was sure he'd forgotten it. No so luck. He suddenly started asking almost every day for his "safari with Spin." We tried slipping in various other adventures with Spin, but he kept insisting he wanted the safari. So I bought it again, and peace has been restored in our household.

This particular DVD is one that our animal crazy son has loved for more than a year now. It had enough cute music and beautiful animal shots to interest him when we was two, and now that he is closer to four he is still enjoying it. There are a lot of interesting animal facts in it, which he is eagerly soaking up. (This is probably his favorite in the series, although he also loves Deep Sea Dive.) As mentioned, he requests it often, and it is educational enough that I don't mind letting him watch.

My 3-yr old son loves this DVD for its catchy songs and lively footage. He watched it every day for the first couple of weeks, and still requests it regularly a year later, so the whole family has got most of the songs memorized. I like that the DVD shows some footage from the wet season in Africa, not just the dusty dry season that you usually see. And they talk about predators and prey in a kid-friendly way, exciting but not scary. We also like the "Hanging with the Primates" show that comes as a special feature, and the interactive quiz and animal sounds features. It's a very polished, engaging DVD that our whole family enjoys.

I used to teach elementary school, and I used the Really Wild Animal videos in my classroom. My students loved them! I purchased this video for my grandson who is an animal lover. He thinks it is great. The movie gives great information for science and geography while presenting the material in a fun way.My grandson has already requested more movies.

This is our favorite series of animal series, our family loves to watch all the animal shows. However, I'm tired of watching series that just sound scary to the children. Spin (Duddle Moore) shows the animals according to the continents, explains awesome facts about them, my husband and I end up seating to watch as well! This has been a favorite, I owe the series on I-tunes and on amazon (amazon has more chapters). If you have little kids, there is also "Mama Mirabelle" from National geographic - another loved one! Highly recommend REALLY WILD ANIMALS! Best one by far!

My 3 year old dinosaur fanatic has watched this about 100x and loves it the same again and again. The rap dino music makes him sing and dance! Yes, the animation is from the early 90's, but the videos where made in the mid 90's! I was not expecting Spielberg Titanic like graphics! If your child is a true dinosaur fan, then he/she will love this very cute and very animated and very factually correct documentary about dinosaurs....ROAR!!!!!!!

I show this every year to 4th grade English language learners and they dig it. They think it's pretty funny and love the songs, so it's not just for little ones. Sure, there's more sophisticated stuff out there, but my experience teaching K-6 is that the kids don't care about that as much as adults do...they just want to be entertained, and they are by this series.

I was very happy to be able to get this video on CD. The one we purchased years ago was on vhs and we wore it out. I bought it for my son and we passed it on to my daughter years later. We all enjoy singing the songs and watching the animals in their natural habitat. It is very easy and informative for little ones to understand and learn some animal trivia. I recommend it for everyone but especially preschoolers
