Curiosity Quest helps to answer the questions children are curious about in an upbeat and fun way. Each question is answered in a video that is approximately 30 minutes long. You can submit new questions to the company. The host of the show goes to a variety of locations to make sure each question is answered completely.
DVD Combo Packs
Our family reviewed two DVD Combo Packs. We watched both Produce and Swimmers of the Sea. The DVD Combo packs included three episodes of Curiosity Quest that relate to each other for almost 90 minutes of viewing time.
Produce covers three different crops. The episodes included on this DVD include Mushrooms, Orange Packing, and Cranberries. Mushrooms takes you through the process of setting up mushroom beds to picking and finally packaging. Orange Packing shows the process of picking, grading and packing fruit. The Cranberry episode finds us in a cranberry bog where different methods of harvesting are explored. You learn about the how cranberries are sorted. You also learn how different grades of cranberries are used.
Swimmers of the Sea include episodes on Turtle Rescue, Salmon Hatchery, and Penguins. The Turtle Rescue takes you to the Florida Keys to see how sea turtles are nursed back to health and what happens to turtles that are unable to be released. Salmon Hatchery showed how nature can be given a helping hand to keep up the population of wild salmon. In Penguins we were taken to an aquarium where many aspects of penguin life are explained. We also see how they live their life at the aquarium.
Watching the DVD’s
Hannah and I sat down one afternoon when I wasn’t feeling well and watched through both DVD’s. On another evening we sat and watched through a couple of the episodes with Dad.
I really enjoyed both of the DVD’s. I found the information very interesting and even as an adult I learned something new. I liked the idea that the episodes were based on real things children are curious about. The videos are high quality and very professional. My personal favorites were the Salmon Hatchery and the Mushroom episodes probably because these were two topics I knew the least about.
Hannah loved how really enjoyed the videos. Even at 12 she didn’t think they were below her and thought they were interesting. She loved how they really showed all the different steps instead of just showing one or two parts. She found it made it fun to learn from.
My husband only watched two episode and said her found them interesting and informative. He said the only negative he found was the segments when they ask children questions on the street. He felt like they highlighted those who gave silly answers and it was making fun of the kids.
Overall, I think that both DVD Combo’s from Curiosity Quest were a lot of fun to watch and I look forward to see more in the future.
The Curiosity Quest DVD’s are designed with children ages 7-14 in mind but I think all ages would find them interesting.
