Kidzworld's Interview with Martin Kratt

Aug 22, 2014

Fans of the Wild Kratts TV series on PBS KIDS will be roaring – and creating their own creature-powered fun! – with the launch of the brand-new Wild Kratts toy line that lets them bring home all the exciting wildlife explorations of the hit show for the very first time! By popular demand, the new Wild Kratts toy line from Wicked Cool Toys will leap, bounce and soar to Toys“R”Us stores nationwide and toysrus.com this month. The imagination-inspiring new assortment of collectable action figures, plush, power suits and more, encourages young animal adventurers to role play and “activate” their own “creature powers” – just like the stars of the show, Chris and Martin Kratt!

Check out Kidzworld's interview below with Martin Kratt about their new toy line!

Kidzworld: What made you decide to create your own Wild Kratts Toy Line?

  • Martin: All of our shows have been about play, and Wild Kratts is specifically about playing with the creature powers of animals! So toys are a natural extension of the series. 

Kidzworld: How did you decide what toys/animals you would make?

  • Martin: This was the hardest part! We’ve featured so many animals in the series so far, and have activated lots of creature powers that are all really cool. We listened to our fans in the letters they wrote to us, about their favorite animals and creature power suits, and made our decisions based on what seemed to be the most popular!

Kidzworld: Did you help in designing the toys?

  • Martin: Yes! We worked with our partners at Wicked Cool toys to come up with the ideas. And the 27 different toys in the stores now are just the beginning!  There are endless opportunities for fun, toys, and play in the Wild Kratts world.

Kidzworld: Do you have a favorite toy from the line?

  • Martin: Right now – I’d have to say mine are the talking Martin and Chris plush. I find it hilarious that we, in our animated form, have now turned into stuffies!

Kidzworld: Do you have a favorite animal?

  • Martain: That’s always the toughest question to answer! When I write scripts for Wild Kratts, I always learn something new about the featured animal. My favorite animal changes a lot and is usually the one I happen to be writing a Wild Kratts script about or filming.  So today, my favorite animal is a narwhal!

Kidzworld: What is the coolest animal you have worked with?

  • Martin: That’s an impossible question for me to answer! We have worked with so many amazing animals. If had to choose the “coolest” animal, as in temperature and being cold, then it would have to be the Japanese Snow Monkey!

Kidzworld: What is the scariest animal you have worked with?

  • Martin: That’s easy!  My brother when he can’t find his Creature Power Vest!
