Review: Guess With Jess

Guess with Jess is a relatively new television series that was brought to my attention by my BFF. Launched at the end of 2009, this series explores common science and nature questions posed by children aged 2-5 years old. Here’s a video detailing what it’s about:

What I like about Guess with Jess is that it encourages children to ask questions and to work out the answers rather than having the solutions handed to them. It promotes thinking, exploring and testing ideas out and it teaches children simple facts about science and nature. Like many of the newer Play House Disney programs, Guess with Jess has it’s own set of catchy jingles that children can sing along to.

Currently, there are 5 DVDs with 10 episodes each covering a wide range of topics, such as “Why do bees make honey?”, “Why won’t my kite fly?”, “Where have all the stars gone?” They should be retailing at most of the regular places selling DVDs. I’ve seen them available at Speedy, Toys ‘R’ Us, and Times Bookstore. I’ve also been told that these DVDs have been spotted at Popular Bookstore in Malaysia, and Isetan in Singapore.

A range of Guess with Jess merchandise is out, too, along with simple books like “Chloe and the Caterpillar” and “Guess Who Lives Here?

  1. Glad you guys enjoyed it. 😀 It is the one show I let the kids watch without restraint (well, some) because it is so interesting, musical, and teaches thinking.
