Growing up, PBS was a big part of my life. With their cartoons being both educational and fun, I knew from the get-go that I wanted PBS to be a part of my own children's lives.
One of our favorite shows is Sid the Science Kid, so when I was asked to review two new Sid DVDs, I responded immediately.
I was sent the Bug Club and Change Happens DVDs along with a PBS kids show shown on Sprout (which sadly, doesn't come in on our satellite): dive Olly dive.
Created by Jim Hansen, Sid the Science Kid is a cute, quirky kid that has a lot of questions to ask. In the Bug Club, Sid questions dogs barking, why dirt is dirty and more. With 115 minutes of fun (plus bonus features), the Bug Club is a great educational treat.
In Change Happens, Sid continues his questions and wonders why things change. Together with his friends, Sid questions and learns about time, temperature and the perfect pancake. All the catchy songs and dances will have your kids up on their feet, and you singing along as well.
In dive Olly dive, you meet Olly the Submarine and all of his friends. In Ship Shape Sub, Olly and his friends explore a haunted ship wreck and in other episodes included on the DVD, they learn important lessons such as not to judge a book by its cover and that good things can come in small packages.
All three DVDs are packed full of fun facts and important lessons for kids to learn. With any of these shows you can be guilt free when you pop them in for a few minutes to yourself or to escape the rainy day blues.
