If you have a preschool aged child or grandchild, chances are good that you’ve heard of Sid the Science Kid. I’ve talked about Sid many times on this blog, and I’ve even given away some really great DVDs.
If you don’t know who Sid the Science Kid is, let me tell you a bit about him and his show.
Sid is a funny and very inquisitive 5 year old who stars in his very own animated television series on PBS Kids. Curious and excited about the world around him, Sid asks all sorts of questions – the how, when, where and why kind of questions – that preschoolers often ask their parents or grandparents. They discover lots of answers and interesting tidbits in each episode. Geared toward children ages 3 – 6, the show uses humor and music as key teaching tools.
Now, I’m giving you the chance to win a Sid the Science Kid Gotta Know Microphone for the preschooler in your life. While we haven’t had a chance to play with the microphone ourselves, here are some cool features of the toy:
Fun push-button features let you create applause noise after you’ve interviewed someone, laughter noise when you’ve told a joke and even the Sid the Science Kid series theme song and silly sounds when you’re ready to sing! For extra fun, set it to “echo mode” and listen to your voice echo…echo…echo… everywhere you go!
Electronic microphone, modeled after the one in the television series, lets kids tell jokes, interview and sing with its laughter, applause, theme song and echo features! Includes 3 “AAA” batteries. Ages 3 and up.
The easy to use push-buttons will provide hours of fun for your preschooler as they tell jokes, ask questions, sing, and listen to their voices echo over and over again.
Need to get your hands on this microphone now, and don’t want to wait until the giveaway ends? You can purchase the microphone on the Hasbro.com website, or wherever toys are sold: Walmart, Kmart, Target, etc. for just $14.99.
Leave a comment here and tell me one question your preschool child (grandchild, student, etc) has asked you that you just didn’t know how to answer.
*Mandatory. If this is not done, you cannot win.
