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. I was expecting each of the extra Front Row DVDs to have different content on it, and was disappointed that the disks contain the same shows, so we have both of the just released Sid the Science Kid collections (Change Happens, and The Bug Club) but two extra Front Row Disks containing the exact same content.
Still, a solid purchase for the price, 4 hours of great entertainment for the kids.
