Plot[]

The episode starts with the Little Einsteins in the Rocket Room doing different activities such as painting, playing music and games, when they heard the four seasons spring allegro loudly and softly which came from the big and small machine and they investigate the big and small machine. Soon, the big and small machine music spins around the ball which make the ball big as the other described the machine which makes things big! And therefore, the machine spins the music note around the ball which made the ball shrunk back to its normal size. Meanwhile, the big and small machine starts to malfunction and starts to spin faster and faster while the big and small machine plays the music notes all around the whole team, including Rocket off screen, which shrink themselves into a small size. Leo told that the big and small machine made the whole team small, including Rocket off screen. Then, Quincy compares himself to a magenta crayon as he exclaims that he's smaller than a crayon, June says that they're minuscule, and then, they look at Rocket who also got shrunk by a malfunctioning big and small machine. But then, the big and small machine starts to break as it spins faster and faster until the top section rips apart from the bottom section and fly all the way to the edge of the slide at the playground. Then, the Little Einsteins need to make a plan while June need to make a plan following a broken big and small machine as Annie doesn't like to be micro size. Then, Leo recognized that they had to get the broken piece from the edge of the slide at the playground and then bring it back to the Rocket room and fix the big and small machine as they can make themselves big again. But Quincy told them that they're so little. Leo put out his baton about they got a mission that they had to find the big and small machine from the edge of the slide at the playground and bring it back so they can fix the big and small machine so they can themselves big again. So they all head inside Rocket, buckle their seatbelts, do the pat sequence and blast off in micro size.

After they blast off in micro size, Quincy knew that the whole team are small than a flower as Annie told that the whole team are the size of the bee. Then, Rocket stopped and put out his extended overhead look and listen scope. Soon, they listened the missing piece of the big and small machine which landed on the edge of the slide at the playground. Then. Rocket retract his extended overhead look and listen scope and fly off while Annie sing the big and small machine song. Then, they saw some leaves falls from the tree which blocks the front view of the whole team in which the winds blew at them and so, Leo told Rocket to fly higher and soon, a diamond kite blocks the whole team in which the wind blew at them, then Rocket flies around the diamond kite.

Then, the wind blew the whole team all the way to June's house, through June's room, and into the cuckoo clock! And once they're inside the clock, they listen to the tick tock sounds from the gears inside the cuckoo clock. Soon, Leo notes that there's a door on the other side of the gear, but those four turning gears are blocking their way. Then, Quincy had an idea about getting past all of those turning gears by listen to the gear turning on the beat and if Rocket flies to the beat, then they'll get past all those gears. Soon, Quincy claps to the beat while saying tick tock and soon, Rocket flew past the first two turning gears, then the whole team clap to the beat while saying tick tock and Rocket flew past the third gear. Soon, Annie points out that there's a door and then whole team continues to clap while saying tick tock and soon, Rocket made it out of the cuckoo clock.

After getting past all of those turning gears inside the cuckoo clock, the Little Einsteins arrived at the field of sunflowers while Annie sang the big and small machine song once again, then, the whole team got stuck on one of the sunflower which belongs to the bumble bee. Then, the whole team heard an angry bumble bee which he flew to it. Then, June had a plan on getting off the sunflower by doing the wiggle dance of wiggling back and forth to the music and soon, Rocket starts to wiggle and squirms out of the sunflower and as the bumble bee gets closer! June had to wiggle harder and harder until Rocket finally got out of the sunflower and the bumblebee gets the pollen.

Soon, they heard the missing piece of the big and small machine as they're getting closer to the playground, and Annie sang the big and small machine again while Rocket flies through all of those grasses.

Soon, they stopped in front of queen ant at the sand box and Rocket landed in front of her and they all head out and bow while Annie asked the queen ant to know the way to the playground by singing the four seasons concerto, spring allegro and the queen ant sing the same song as Annie. Then, the queen ant points out a short cut as the whole team head back to Rocket then he puts out his crawler tracks and follow the queen ant inside the ant hole. As they entered the ant tunnel, they realized its dark inside there and Annie had an idea on getting through the ant tunnel by playing follow the queen ant. When they hear the queen ant sing the four seasons concerto, spring allegro, then the whole team sing the four seasons concerto spring allegro. Therefore, the whole team follows the queen ant while singing the four seasons concerto spring allegro back to back and soon, they made it out of the ant tunnel.

Then, they heard the missing piece of the big and small machine which mean that they're at the playground and Annie thanks to the queen ant about follow the whole team. Then, they saw the missing piece of the big and small machine which is on the edge of the slide and Rocket flies to it and put out his grab nabber. But it's super heavy in small size for Rocket to lift, so Leo had to do a pat sequence once again to give Rocket extra power to lift the missing piece of the big and small machine and carry the missing piece of the big and small machine back home. Soon, Rocket gives lots and lots of power while June doesn't know how long Rocket can carry the missing piece of the big and small machine. Then Rocket about to drop because of all of those weight of the missing piece of the big and small machine. Then, Leo knew the way home because they have to go back the way they came.

First, they had to follow the queen ant through the tunnel while singing the four seasons concerto spring allegro back to back. And they thank queen ant about follow the leader back to the way they came before.

Soon, they got stuck on the same sunflower as the trip down and the bumblebee buzz towards them, so June had to wiggle while Rocket squirms out of the sunflower and soon, Rocket is out of the sunflower and on their way to the cuckoo clock.

Then, Quincy puts out that they're almost to the Rocket room. But the wind blew back inside the cuckoo clock to June's room at June's house, so Quincy had to clap while saying tick tock and soon as Rocket flies to the beat to get past all four turning gears, soon Rocket is out of the cuckoo clock and headed back to the Rocket room.

Soon, they made it back to the Rocket room and Rocket attach the top section of the broken big and small machine to the bottom section of the big and small machine and soon, the big and small machine is fixed and then whole team head out of Rocket. Soon, the big and small machine starts working again but the machine plays softly, so all had to sing the four seasons concerto spring allegro forte to make themselves big again.
