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.
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 only complaint, and it's a little one at that, is that it took a while to get delivered to me. This was probably my fault for choosing the free Super Saver shipping though. Every time I opt for the free shipping option the packages take a while and seem to go out of the way before they get to me. I guess that's what I get for picking the free option.
