Meet Sid, an inquisitive preschooler who uses scientific principles to help satisfy his curiosity about the world around him. Produced by the Jim Henson Company, this series takes the classic puppetry style of the Muppets and uses motion-capture technology to create virtual puppet characters.
PBS Kids Sid the Science Kid is suppose to be teaching children about science does it really matter that the characters don't match up to an adult vision of how they should be acting. In my opinion we need more hands on learning in our schools and more families need to learn to enjoy having fun with our kids no matter how foolish it may look. It's about making memories with our kids than it is trying to impress others. I don;t mind dancing around with my kids or even telling stories of when I was young. As for Sid and the others on this show I think they do a great job in teaching our children about the many things about you ought to go to their web page and play their games and do some of activities with your kids you never know you might actually enjoy being a kid again.moreless
Just one thing kills more more than everything else in this show: how those kids speak. The intonation and the words all remind me those of literally slow developing kids. It is more "from the street" type of language, than that of educated and simply well balanced kids.
The moves and jokes are really beyond dumb or ***ed. Really I have no words for that. The way Grandma and parents and all the other family members dance around for no reason in weird places and situations is completely disturbing and always forms a huge question mark of perplexity in my mind. This show should not be shown on TV. Whoever likes it should buy their own 100 copies and enjoy in the comfort of their own home.moreless
My husband and son love this. My son watches it every night before bed. Sid always goes to bed at the end of each show, which makes a great transition. The show keeps science simple and teaches it in a child-like way. Almost ALL of the experiments (hands on learning) are things you can do at home. I think the animation leaves a little to be desired, but given the age group it's targeting and that it's only in it's 2nd season, I think it's good. We bought some Sid DVDs and even a few of the books. I even enjoy it... although, I do wish PBS would stop showing the same few shows during re-run season.moreless
My son that will be 2 in March LOVES this show! He will not watch anything else, but Sid! It is a cartoon and is a great for children. I think it helps children learn and grow and become excited to go to school. I read some of the other reviews and I still LOVE this cartoon for my child and if this is what he wants to watch I think it is a lot better than many others out there. KEEP UP THE GOOD WORK! If you haven't ever let your child watch it I suggest it highly!moreless
