Spring into Science DVD Review & Giveaway {Written by Emilee}


Spring is in the air!  To celebrate, NCircle Entertainment is offering one of Sweetly Made (Just for you) readers a chance to win a “Spring into Science” DVD giveaway, featuring some of our most popular science-oriented brands.  

The package includes four new NCircle Entertainment DVDs from Sid the Science Kid, The Cat in the Hat Knows a Lot About That!, Octonauts and Dino Dan.  The SRP for the complete package is $45.00.  

Are you excited? Well, I sure am.

"SPRING INTO SCIENCE”DVDS 

Dino Dan: Swimming with Dinosaurs!

(SRP $9.99)

Dino Dan fans, it’s time to join Trek and learn about some of the coolest dinosaurs yet! Dive into dino adventures in the water on the new DVD Swimming with Dinosaurs!

In my opinion:

My son really liked Dino Dan which wasn't exactly my favorite of 

the four DVDs that I watched. But, it wasn't about me watching 

them. It was all about my son because children are the ones that

 can tell us if they enjoyed it or not. However, after thinking about 

what I learned, I wasn't ready to make this one of my least favorite

 DVDs. 

Junior dinosaur expert Trek Henderson has a great 

imagination. He taught us about dinosaurs such as the 

Plesiosaurus, Archelon and Deinoslichlis. There were eight

 episodes included so plenty of dino adventures to see. I do 

recommend this DVD since I could see how much my son loved it. 

It was educational, entertaining and neat to learn about giant

 prehistoric marine reptiles.

Sid the Science Kid: Encyclopedia of Discovery 

(SRP $9.99)


Sid the Science Kid inspires children to ask questions about how the world works, embracing every child’s natural passion for fun and discovery.  Explore 26 exciting topics with Sid and is friends in this Encyclopedia of Discovery!
·         26 mini-episodes (never-before-seen)
·         Bonus episode: Get Up and Move!

In my opinion:

The Sid the Science Kid: Encyclopedia of Discovery included 26 episodes which actually were quite entertaining. I love that the entire show is located in a school setting. It definitely is perfect for Preschool and Kindergarten aged children. They learn about math, exploration, science, astronomy and time from Teacher Susie. It made school look fun so I'm grateful for this DVD to help prepare my son for Kindergarten. It was also filled with exciting topics such as the difference between primary and secondary colors. I definitely recommend this DVD for your young children to learn and discover.
Discover & Investigate with the Cat in the Hat 


(SRP $14.99)




Season 1 of Cat in the Hat is now on DVD! Discover and investigate with the Cat in the Hat, Sally, and Nick as they are whisked off on extraordinary voyages of scientific discovery.  Hop on the thinga-ma-jigger and let’s explore!
·     Season 1, Volume 2

In my opinion:

I'm actually a huge fan of The Cat in the Hat so it was fun to watch the Season 1, Volume 2 DVD. There were so many episodes. We obviously had to watch it over a few days but I never got tired of listening to Martin Short's voice of the Cat in the Hat. He even had a lovely singing voice. 

I loved the adventures and discoveries. I loved that my son was learning about bats, penguins, hibernation (the song has now stuck in my head), cows and other animals. Again, this was another educational children's DVD so I appreciated NCircle entertainment and definitely recommend their variety of kid shows. I obviously have my favorites but overall, I am impressed with what I've seen. I feel that some kid shows aren't as educational and appropriate but I've never come across one from NCircle entertainment that hasn't educated my son.
Octonauts: Crocodiles & Crabs!


(SRP $9.99)

Sound the octo-alert and join the Octonauts above and below the waves! Help them rescue a gigantic saltwater crocodile, learn about hermit crabs and their shells, and explore a sunken pirate ship with slime eels. Enjoy these adventures and more now on their new DVD Crocodiles & Crabs!
http://www.amazon.com/Octonauts-Crocodiles-Crabs/dp/B00U1GQPF2

In my opinion:

This was my favorite DVD by far. I loved the Octonauts. I loved the Octonaut team. All of the characters were so adorable. I loved that we were able to learn more about underwater sea creatures.  In this DVD, we learned about crocodiles, crabs, eels, shrimp and enemones. The octonauts are always ready for an adventure as they explore, rescue and protect their habitats. They were great examples of helping others and working together. I loved that I came away from watching this DVD with a good feeling. I knew I wasn't wasting my time but was actually learning. That is really important to me because I want my kids to be educated while they sit and watch. Of course, I recommend any of the Octonauts DVDs. 

One of Sweetly Made (Just for you) readers will win a prize package including all four of these spectacular DVDs.
