"We initially borrowed "Radical Rockets" from the library and my 4 year old son instantly became a die-hard fan of PMK. I decided to invest in the 6 DVD set for Christmas and it has been worth every penny! These are easily his favorite videos. While Charlie may seem silly to adults, his experiments get real science across to kids in a fun and easy way. My son thinks he's hysterical and talks about the PMK kids as if they're his buddies. His preschool teacher says he talks about his "mechanics videos" all the time as he explains (in his 4 year old way) things like how rockets work or how to survive in the desert to her. Highly recommended and definitely worthwhile - a fun, educational series for kids."
Learning with PMK is FUN!

"My kids ages 6 and 7 LOVE PMK, they've learned so many really cool things watching PMK. I bought one DVD just to see what it was like, then two more and two more, and two more. Now I just ordered the newest ones coming out. They are always telling me about this fact or that and I actually like watching them too."

"Having a boy and girl is often tough when they want to watch different movies. I thought this was a must have! I purchased the set right before we went on a 13 hour drive for vacation and it was a hit. I did not feel guilty letting them watch dvd's that I knew were informative and fun to watch. My children were entertained and educated at the same time. A double bonus! These are great for boys and girls. Would recommend them to teachers!"
We highly recommend this item

"If I leave my youngest daughter to make her own television veiwing choices, inevitably she will gravitate towards mindless cartoons. The most notable exception is PMK. Se loves these programs and even watches them repeatedly. I've watched most of them with her and find them pretty informative. I was looking for new episodes tonight because when I got home from work she reported to me that our cat has tapeworms, explained her diagnosis, and recited what she knew about tapeworms and their causes in pets from the program section "nix and tics" talking about parasites. She hadn't seen that program in months, but clearly it stuck. It is apparent she's learning from these programs."
Fun and educational!!

"Our kids love this DVD set. They watch their DVD players when they go to bed, but they can only watch educational DVDs. This is the perfect option. They both (4 and 7 years) love them."
