Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble
Among parents' litanies of fears for their children, abduction lands squarely in the "nightmare" column; the possibility is almost too unsettling to contemplate for more than a few moments. For parents of outgoing, trusting, guileless little ones, the concern is even more harrowing. The Safe Side program, geared toward kids ages 5 to 11, aims to promote stranger savvy in an entertaining and accessible format, and it boasts a very impressive pedigree: Julie Clark, the creative force behind the Baby Einstein video series, and America's Most Wanted host John Walsh, teamed up on the presentation. As the cover very clearly spells it out, The Safe Side offers "hot tips to keep cool kids safe with people they don't know and kinda know." And while the use of the word "with" in that sentence underscores the producers' intention to edify, rather than scare, the type-A paranoids among us will read it as "from" and be thankful that somebody at least has taken up the cause in a format kids will relate to. The pigtailed "Safe Side Superchick" hosts the show, which begins by defining "Who Is a 'Don't Know?'  " and then lays out seven "Hot Tips" that will serve as defensive tools. Rules including "Don't open the door," "Beware of tricks," and "Don't know? Don't talk," are eminently repeatable, as is the presentation itself. Clearly, The Safe Side is one for the family to watch together. Worth noting: The producers have promised to donate 10 percent of their gross proceeds to the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children.

This movie was an excellent review of safety tips that I want my child to know. It is funny and entertaining while teaching children about safety and strangers. I have watched it many times with my son and we talk about safety tips.

I recently purchased the "safe side" dvd for my son and daughter ages 6 and 9 yrs. We watched the video together and they got so motivated to learn more safety tips and to tell their friends. We are taking the dvd to the school to share with all. love the stickers they incl. with the dvd. The online questions are a great follow-up and re-enforcement, thank you once again Mr. Walsh

The dvd sat on our shelf for about two months before my five year old son would watch it (I didn't want to force him, since he needed to be receptive to it). Once he watched it, though, he LOVED it. Yes, it's extremely silly. Once you get past that and really watch and listen, you'll love it too. Angela Shelton makes a great "Safe Side Superchick". She's passionate about keeping kids safe, which is evident in the way she speaks. My son quotes the dvd often, and I've even caught him singing a couple of the tunes from the dvd!

I bought this DVD for my 5 year old daughter to watch. She absolutely loved it, it really got the point across to her. It does so in a kid friendly way. Its upbeat and NOT scary for the children at all. I highly recommend purchasing this title for your kids.

I pre-viewed the video before watching it with my children. Though it has some real sound effect issues (too loud in some spots... overplays the commentary) and some of the silliness is over the top, the basic premise of the video is well understood and captures kids' attention. My children are 5 1/2 and 7 and they really 'got it'. The information is presnted in a way that is not scary but also leaves one with the feeling that it is indeed a serious topic, not just entertainment.

My kids really like it. My son is almost 6 and he loves the dvd, requesting it often. My 2 1/2 year old daughter doesn't really get the point of it but it is not innappropriate or scary for her to watch and she thinks it's funny. I highly reccommend this product to introduce basic safety rules for children without making them anxious or overly fearful.
