Sid lovers over here! Well, actually, we prefer Gerald.
And, I agree, cartoons these days stink. I've been buying dvd sets of all of the good stuff I used to watch as a kid to share with my younguns as they get older.

Congrats!!

Have you actually sat down and watched some of the cartoons that your kids watch everyday?
Yikes is all I have to say about that.
Cartoons back in my day were G rated. The cartoons on the tv today are more like PG.
My kids know a "BAD" cartoon from a "GOOD" one.
We don't watch BAD ones.....and I aint talking about BAD as in BORING.
It's just sad that I have to screen everything beforehand.

However, we were introduced to a couple of new & CUTE cartoons over the past couple of weeks.
Both of these are on PBS KIDS (I had no clue.)
&


Do your kids watch these?
Both are adorable and very educational.
I have become a fan of Sid. (love his voice)
We actually watch him every morning now on PBS.

A little about Sid the Science Kid :
The main character in the show is Sid, an "inquisitive youngster" who uses comedy to tackle questions kids have about basic scientific principles and why things work the way they do.

He tries to answer questions and solve problems with the help of his classmates (Gabriella, Gerald, and May), Teacher Suzie, and his family (his mother Alice, his father Mort, his Grandma named Mark, and his baby brother Zeke).
The conceptual content of Sid is based in national science learning standards, cognitive learning theory, and on the preschool science curriculum, Preschool Pathways to Science.

About Dive Olly Dive:
Dive Olly Dive follows the adventures of Olly, a young submarine-in-training, and Beth, his best friend and fellow sub-in-training. Stationed at the Special Underwater Research Facility (S.U.R.F.) under the guidance of Diver Doug, the young subs explore their spectacular underwater world

Both cartoons capture my lil one's attention and as an added bonus, they learn something new.

Woo to the Hoo!

I can just call it a day, right?

Entertainment and Education.....what else do they need besides a little food every now and again.

*GIVEAWAY*

Wanna win some SWAG?

We love, love, love Sid. I haven't seen Dive Olly Dive, but we will definitely have to check it out.

Good vs. Bad cartoons...those "bad" ones are like a four letter word in our house. Whenever Mini #1 wants to press my buttons he'll say something about watching ____! Lovely isn't it.

Thanks for doing this giveaway!

"I'm looking for mr friends, I'm looking for you. Hey there's..."

(I get that Sid song in my head and sing it all day.)
