The recent release of The Octonauts: 12 Rescue Missions DVD I can get behind with excitement! The Octonauts series has a huge educational value.

My children have been enjoying the adventures of the Little Prince thanks to the three latest DVDs sent to us by nCircle Entertainment. It wasn’t until a couple of months ago that we were introduced to The Little Prince on the film found on Netflix.
