Go Diego, Go!: Diego's Ultimate Rescue League DVD Review & Giveaway!!!

Both my kids have long loved Diego. Unfortunately, it fails to win their loyalty if Dora is an option. I love Diego because it teaches them Spanish AND teaches them about animals. I love animals and find it pretty interesting to learn about these diverse creatures and where they live. Plus, at the end of each episode is a "review" where the children are asked to remember certain details about the animals they have just learned about. I think it's excellent and gladly let my children watch it!

In Diego's Ultimate Rescue League you get to enjoy three new-to-dvd episodes! 

Go, Diego, Go!: Diego’s Ultimate Rescue League Episode Synopses:

Diego’s International Rescue League
Diego has assembled an elite team of world rescuers to endure a challenging test that will earn them their World Rescuers’ patch.  Diego’s team includes Juma – the African desert expert, Shanti – the Indian forest expert, Burgin – an expert diver and surfer from Borneo, Yang – a panda rescuer who can climb up the tallest and most treacherous mountains of China, and team captain Diego – who’s rescued animals from every corner of the globe – even the frozen tundra of Antarctica! The team assembles on Rescue Island, where they must race against the clock in their Rescue-Flyer to identify and return five mystery animal eggs to their respective habitats before time runs out.

Ocean Animal Rescuer
Bottlenose wants to become an ocean animal rescuer just like Diego and Baby Humpback Whale. Bottlenose must swim fast and rescue the baby sea turtles from a giant wave that could devastate the population. Then Diego, Baby Humpback, and Bottlenose must work together to rescue the ocean animals from a dangerous oil-spill before it gets too close to their natural habitats.

Diego Rescues Prince Vicuña
Prince Vicuña embarked on an extensive exploration and has yet to return to his parents, the King and Queen, who long for their lost son.  Diego and Messenger Vicuña are quick to develop a plan of action.  Diego and Messenger Vicuña run into some trouble as they realize the Prince is over the mountain, near Puma Pass.  Diego decides to use a special climbing hook and rope to climb up the mountain toward Puma Pass to rescue the Prince.  After a successful rescue, we take the Prince back to Vicuña Valley, and reunite him with his joyful parents.


Family Time Factor: One of the few cartoons I can tolerate watching with the kids or having on in the background. I think it is best enjoyed by boys or girls from birth to 10.
