When I read about the program from Amazon studios known as Annedroids I knew it was something my six year old son would be interested in. This sort of sci-fi drama all played out with kids, sounded right up his alley. Here’s a little snippet about the premise of the show:
Annedroids is a science based-action adventure series that follows eleven-old genius and kid-scientist Anne, who has invented and built her own amazing androids, and her friends and kid assistants Nick and Shania. Together the kid trio make amazing scientific discoveries while undertaking the biggest experiment of all: growing up.
So I was very excited to get the opportunity to actually watch this with my son. He seemed hesitant about it, but as soon as I put it on for him I would say he was hooked!
What My Son Thought Of Annedroids
I asked me six year old what he thought of Annedroids and he said, “I liked the robot, they were cool!” My son really enjoyed watching the six episodes we were given. It kept his interest. He kept asking me if he could watch more Annedroids. He liked how some of the other Annedroids helped the other Annedroid come alive. I’m pretty sure he wants to live in Anne’s lab now too. He thought all of her little inventions were really cool.
What Did I Think Of Annedroids
In all honesty this program did not hold my interest at all. Not that it was supposed to hold my interest. I found the acting to be poor though. And personally I felt the girl who played Shania was particularly obnoxious. Nick and Anne were okay characters though. I did like the little scientific educational teachings they had in there though. Like learning about what a hypothesis is and how to conduct an experiment and how the voltage from one lighting strike would give enough power to charge up one of the Annedroids when all of the batteries and electricity at their disposal would not. And of course I also liked that my son was enjoying it so much. After all, that’s what really makes all kid’s programs tolerable, if the kids are enjoying it. I’ve watched more than my fair share of annoying programs over the years because it made the kids happy. Annedroids isn’t the absolute most obnoxious kid’s program I have been subjected to over the years.
All in all I think this is a great program for kids between the ages of 4 and 7 as it’s being advertised for. I’m not sure that older kids would be interested in it, but my 3 year old would have enjoyed it. Parents will like it for their kids because it’s educational and kids like it because it’s cool, at least according to my son. You should definitely check out Annedroids from Amazon studios with your kids though. I don’t think you’ll be disappointed.
