My toddler grandson likes Sid, especially the songs and dancing. These are good for that now, but they really do have science and benefits to watching as he gets older. I have a basic satellite service, and often about the only non-violent cartoon on is Spongebob. I do try to have some educational value to what he watches. Sid the Science Kid is a better option than many.

Educational DVD for children!
One of the Best of Sid the Science Kid

"[...] This DVD contains the episode: My mushy banana, My Shrinking Shoes, My Ice Pops, and The Perfect Pancake.
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."
Great, great show

"OK, the DVD hasn't come out yet, but the show has been on PBS for the last season, and my 4 year old LOVES it. This show does a great job of explaining things in a fun (and parents, a non-annoying!) way. My son knows all about germs and decay and all kinds of fun things that don't come up in daily conversation. Terrific job of making an educational show that is completely fun, too."
Now I Know What Turns a Banana Brown

"I tell you the more I am getting to know "Sid" the more that this little guy is growing on me.
I love the characters, I love the concept and I love the fact that Sid and his friends clearly and easily explain the scientific dynamics on how things change.
I am sure if you are a parent you have heard the "How does..." and "Why does..." questions a million times. With my twins I get questions thrown at me at a double rate.
Sid the Science Kid is a perfect video for little ones and entertaining enough to keep grown ups listening as well.
With 115 minutes of video and four episodes: My Mushy Banana, My Shrinking Shoes, My Ice Pops and The Perfect Pancake...you not only receive entertainment but a wonderful start on teaching your children to love science.
I hated the annual science fair at school during my elementary years but if there were cartoons like "Sid the Science Kid - Change Happens" there may have been a lot of change in my views of science. I must be honest and say that I wasn't really sure what makes a Banana turn brown until I saw this video. I know sad, huh? But hey, now I know and so do the twins! Seems like Sid is doing his job!
