Curiosity Quest Review

Ever wonder how pianos are built? Or how rescue dogs are trained? Ever wonder what it's like to fly in a hot air balloon? Or how it feels to drive in a go-kart race?

You're not alone.
Curiosity Quest, an award-winning tv show for the whole family, finds the answers to your questions. Viewers can send in an idea for a quest, and host Joel Greene will venture out on location to discover more about the topic. Each quest is unscripted, and at times, brings with it comical moments.

We had the chance to watch two Curiosity Quest episodes, Curiosity Quest: Goes Green and Steinway & Sons. The show reminded me of Dirty Jobs, but at a family appropriate level. The whole family really enjoyed learning more about the various situations Joel Greene explored.
My 4 year old thought the Fun Facts offered throughout the show were interesting. He also got a giggle listening to people answer questions during street interviews on the show. Overall, we found the show fascinating, and my son was captivated by the new information he was learning.

Curiosity Quest airs on PBS. Be sure to check out if it's on in your area.

Thanks so much for this link. My son has always been more into the Mighty Machines and Hard Hat Harry over Finding Nemo and Cars.

Dang it! This isn't in Colorado yet. Bummer. Morgan would really love this show. Hopefully it comes soon.
