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

Product Description

When Sid the Science Kid hears dogs barking, he wonders if they're talking to him. At school, Sid discovers that animals do communicate in lots of different ways, by using body language, making sounds and barking! It's the latest question in a long list of questions that Sid finds himself wondering about. For example, what makes dirt so dirty? Why do bees live in hives and ants live in anthills? Do leaves actually do anything?

My 3 year old boy and 5 year old daughter enjoy Sid the Science Kid on PBS. So when the new collection of Sid episodes was released, we scooped The Bug Club up along with it's companion collection Things Change. My kids preferred the companion collection more than The Bug Club, to my surprise.

This DVD contains the episodes Hello Doggie, Home Tweet Home, The Dirt on Dirt, and Don't Forget the Leaves,

When Sid hears dogs barking in his neighborhood, he wonders if they're talking to him. At school, Sid discovers that animals do communicate in lost of different ways, by using body language, making sounds, and barking! Woof! It's the latest question in a long list of questions that Sid finds himself wondering about. For example, what makes dirt so dirty? Why do bees live in hives and ants live in anthills? Do leaves actually do anything? Come explore backyard science with Sid in these super duper episodes that feature bugs, nature, animals and more. This DVD is close to two hours long ( 115 min).

If you hurry (for a limited time) you will get an additional DVD called Front Row Fun which contains another episode of Sid ( Why do we need Charts), as well as episodes of WordWorld, Dive Olly Dive!, Hurray for Huckle!, Tiny Planets, Will and Dewitt, Animal Atlas, Hermia and Friends, Pocoyo and Hopla. This DVD runs over two hours (134 minutes) and makes for a total of 4 hours of content for a really decent price.

The only problem with the extra DVD is that if you buy the companion collection of Sid the Science Kid (Things Change), the extra Front Row DVD has exactly the same content. In other words all the extra Front Row DVDs in the Sid collections have the same content.

5.0 out of 5 stars 2 Year Old Can't Stop Watching October 15, 2009
Verified Purchase
We ordered this DVD hoping that our 24 month old would watch it during a 4 hour plane flight. It was ordered a couple of days before, so we played it for him prior to the trip to see if he'd like it. He loved it, and is still asking to watch it every day 30 days after we received the DVD. The music on this DVD makes it fun to sing along with, and there is always a lesson to be learned.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great for science camp September 21, 2013
Verified Purchase
Yes, his voice is annoying, and I'm not sure whose marketing idea it was to make him sound this way, but the kids seem to connect with Sid and his friends. They don't talk like him or emulate him or his "dumb" friend - I forgot what his name is. We use this in conjunction with our bug lesson, after lunch, when the kids need to wind down a little.

This is a great movie. We've watched it over and over again and every time my 2 yr. old grand daughter comes over she wants to watch Sid. These are some of the best Sid shows, too.
