My son loves Sid the Science kid! I think the idea is wonderful. Using real people and family with grandmother, father, siblings, friends and a teacher is excellent choice to teach kids to love grown ups. I think it is better than using dragons, dinasaurs etc. One thing though I don't really like, which is not that important, I can't stand some of the voices like the grandmother. Drives me up the wall sometimes. And I think it is too fast the voices too annoying! but other than that I think the questions are very age appropriate, and the ideas are wonderful. If they can only change a little bit if the hype!
