Anybody seen this before? Is it any good? Do you have any other suggestions? DD is 3.5 and I think she would like videos about animals, volcanoes and/or dinosaurs.

Also, Planet Earth is awesome.
This is probably too old (and possible too scary) for your DD, though I got it for the boys last Christmas when ds#3 was 3.5, but we've really enjoyed it:
A friend's little boy really likes Dirty Jobs (we haven't seen it yet, but want to):
I remember checking out a series when ds#1 was 3.5-4, but I can't remember the name well enough to find it. It was something like "How Things Are Made" or "How Things Are Done" or something. Now, when I search, I can only find the websites with similar names (like "How Stuff Works"). I think it may be because the "How it Works" part was a subtitle, and each video had it's own main title like "Hot Air Balloons" or "Electricity". I just know that he loved them, and then we moved and our current library doesn't carry much in the way of movies.
Magic School Bus, while totally branded, is really fun.
We like Planet Earth.
The BBC dinosaurs series is great but has pretty explicit killing scenes and my son ended up in tears over a dinosaur that made a migration only to fail to mate and die alone on the sands (should have screened that one first...) so I would make sure not to be as dumb as me and watch them first.
Also, depending on the age of your child, They Might Be Giants released a DVD called "Here Comes Science" with lots of awesome science songs.
