Product Description

*Parents' Choice Award: Gold Winner 2009* *National Parenting Publication Award (NAPPA): Honors 2011* Sid wants to know why things have to change. Why does his yellow banana turn brown? How come his shoes are shrinking? What made his ice pop melt and just how does Grandma know how to make a pancake that is not too squishy or burnt? Sid and his friends work together to discover the effects of time, temperature and the environment with the help of some revealing experiments and songs.

Review

This enjoyable educational series fills a gap in preschool programming, which has more often tended to focus on developing kids' readiness for reading and math. With Sid as their guide, kids will be inspired to ask question as a means of discovering new things, and they'll want to make observations and test their own scientific theories. The show's dual settings -- Sid's school and his home -- remind young viewers that the scientific world is all around us, waiting to be explored. With some encouragement from parents, there's no end to the educational opportunities that could be inspired by Sid's curiosity. And, learning aside, the show is sure to be a hit with kids because it's got plenty of music, dance, and all-around good fun. Preschoolers will enjoy aspiring comedian Sid's silly antics and the jokes that he and his friends make up (they're always related to the episode's theme). It's so entertaining that parents might find themselves drawn to watch as well -- and those who do may well learn a few things, too. --Common Sense Media

My 8 month old is in love with SID.

Sid proves that many science concepts are accessible to young kids when presented in the right way.

[...] This DVD contains the episode: My mushy banana, My Shrinking Shoes, My Ice Pops, and The Perfect Pancake.

Sid the Science Kid wants to know why things have to change. Why does his yellow banana turn brown? How come his shoes are shrinking? What made his ice pop melt and just how does Grandma know how to make a pancake this is not too squishy or burnt? Sid and his friends work together to discover the efects of time, temperature and the environment with the help of some revealing experiments and songs.

My three year old boy and 5 year old girl love Sid, and prefer this collection "Change Happens" over the other just released collection The Bug Club. The rotten banana episode is a particular favorite, with the kids talking about "decay" the whole day long. This DVD is almost two hours long (115 minutes) but if you act now you will get a bonus DVD disk containing an additional 2 hours of content (134 minutes).

Early purchasers will also an additional DVD called Front Row Fun starring an additional episode of Sid (on our disk we got the episode Why do we need Charts) as well as episodes of WorldWorld, Dive Olly Dive!, Hermie and Friends, Pocoyo and Hopla. This is a real bargain for the price. A super show produced by Jim Henson's studio and directed by his son Brian Henson. Highly recommended.

OK, the DVD hasn't come out yet, but the show has been on PBS for the last season, and my 4 year old LOVES it. This show does a great job of explaining things in a fun (and parents, a non-annoying!) way. My son knows all about germs and decay and all kinds of fun things that don't come up in daily conversation. Terrific job of making an educational show that is completely fun, too.

I have no idea what the reviewer who gave this show 1 star was thinking. It is educational, entertaining, holds my 20 month old's attention for the whole length of the DVD (on the 1 or 2 occasions she has actually been allowed to watch the whole thing at once), and best of all NOT AT ALL ANNOYING FOR ME TO SIT THROUGH! Sid is entertaining even for me. A welcome change from the painfully annoying shows like Yo Gabba Gabba (which she loves... yay...) or Barney that kids are so drawn to, and yet it holds their attention just as well and teaches them so much. I will admit that the characters look a little strange but that is part of what makes the show so unique. After finding out that Sid is 1/2 African American and 1/2 Jewish (his family celebrates Hanukkah, Kwanzaa, and Christmas), my husband and I had quite a bit of fun trying to decide what the ethnic backgrounds of the others were and realized that, if you think about it, the show is very diverse as far as the potential for introducing children to components that make up other cultures... Chinese culture (May), Hispanic culture (Gabriella)... we're not sure about Gerald though... maybe Irish? I hope that the Jim Henson company does not overlook this educational opportunity.

The only complaint I have is that there are 5 episodes following the "Change Happens" theme but only 4 were included on the DVD. The way Sid is set up, there are 4 episodes introducing new concepts relating to the theme (in this case decay, growth, reversible change, and irreversible change) and then a fifth episode reviewing the content discussed in the previous 4 episodes. It would have been nice to have this review episode included on the DVD.

Even with only 4 episodes of the 5 I give this DVD 5 stars and we will definitely be buying more Sid DVD's in the future. I am already choosing which ones to buy for my daughter's upcoming birthday!

My kids are a little older than the target audience, but they love the science in this show. They accurately and enthusiastically identify 'decay' on food or outside (fall leaves, pumpkins after halloween, etc). My six year old also keeps an observation journal, inspired by the show. The family and preschool depicted are loving and sweet. My only complaint is the actors--the voices are so-so compared to other Jim Henson programs. The little girl May is especially annoying, the actress sounds condescending and idiotic instead of innocent. We still buy and watch the videos, and the kids don't seem to mind May's voice.

Sid the Science Kid has great lessons for kids to learn. They are fun to watch and the kids are learning even though they don't know realize it at the time. Great learning tool!
