The Magic School Bus: The Complete Series....OUT NOW! Review & Give Away!

I am SO excited to tell you about about a spectacular DVD set hitting the shelves today....The Magic School Bus: The Complete Series.  I can't express enough how amazing I think everything The Magic School Bus is.  The books, the science club and now, these DVD's, have managed to captivate my children in a way very few other things have.  What an absolute treasure trove of educational fun! Here is the scoop...

Not many children’s brands can stand the test of time, entertaining and educating generation after generation. THE MAGIC SCHOOL BUS, which recently celebrated its 25th anniversary, is one such brand. This September, as children head back to their classrooms, they can hop aboard the world’s most famous school bus for exciting and unforgettable lessons as Scholastic Media re-launches to DVD the timeless, Emmy Award winning TV series.

On September 4, Scholastic Media and New Video, the distributors of the award-winning Scholastic Storybook Treasures series are partnering to release the perennially popular series in several configurations featuring all new packaging and never-before-released content. THE MAGIC SCHOOL BUS: THE COMPLETE SERIES ($79.95srp) brings together all 52 episodes of the program – including 30 which are available for purchase for the first time – on 8 DVDs. Featuring a striking 3D lenticular cover with new artwork that makes the vibrant characters leap off the page and that will encourage kids to ask the question “how did they make that?” , the collectible thin-pack set also includes a guide for kids with teasers, trivia and experiments, plus a Parents’ Guide with lessons and learning options. This interactive guide creates wholesome and healthy entertainment for the entire family.


Also new to the line – and just in time for Back to School activities -- will be two special 3-pack configurations, which will each include more than four hours of THE MAGIC SCHOOL BUS adventures! Join Ms. Frizzle to explore everything from the smallest cell to the largest galaxy in the universe with THE MAGIC SCHOOL BUS: BLAST OFF! FROM SEA TO SPACE and THE MAGIC SCHOOL BUS: FIELD TRIP FUN AND GAMES. Both, priced to add to every home library at $24.95srp, feature 12 episodes, some releasing for the first time.


Finally, released day-and-date will be four THE MAGIC SCHOOL BUS singles ($12.95srp ea.), each featuring 90 minutes of science fun with Ms. Frizzle and her students:


· The Human Body – Science topics include digestion and body mechanics.

· Super Star Power – Science topics include stars and cells.

· Takes a Dive – Science topics include coral reefs and tidal zones.

· Takes Flight – Science topics include weather and flying.


Poised to deliver fun and learning in a whole new way with the massive THE MAGIC SCHOOL BUS: THE COMPLETE SERIES, two new DVD sets and four single titles, excitement will soon be rolling into the marketplace on the heels of an enormous 25th Anniversary push for the brand.


The only question? Where will the Bus take you?


The Magic School Bus® books, published by Scholastic, have been capturing children’s imaginations since they first book rolled onto shelves in 1986. Since then, the acclaimed series has sold over 60 million books and spawned a successful animated TV series, which premiered in 1994, with support from The National Science Foundation. Now the longest-running science series to air on television, the star-studded program features the voices of Lily Tomlin, Wynonna Judd, Dolly Parton, Tony Randall and Malcolm-Jamal Warner. Along with the adventurous and energetic Ms. Frizzle and her pet lizard, Liz, the entire class – along with the audience –invites students to explore volcanoes, the inside of the human body and much, much more! 
 
Wow, wow, wow.  My boys love science and this televsion show is absolute brain food for them.  This series is an excellent educational show for children.  It centers around the Ms. Fizzle (Lily Tomlin) a teacher who dresses according to each epsidoes's theme (my boys think this is hilarious).  She has a school bus that is completely magical alowing her students and her trusty lizard, Liz to go on amazing field trips. 
 
These magical field trips, courtesy of Ms. Fizzle and her magic school bus, take the kids on journeys to space, the desert, engines, the artic, inside the human body and so much more.  In the process of these fun adventures, children are taught valuable lessons about how the world around them works. 
 
 It is not too often that a series manages to nail both the fun and the educational factor but The Magic School Bus does this with ease.  This collection is one I can easily give two thumbs up to.  You can pick up your copy today on Amazon....
 
 
 
 

I also want to mention that i think this set would make a fantastic teacher/classroom gift. What a great way to say thank you to your child's school! I am so pleased to tell you that Scholastic is giving one lucky RBM reader The Magic School Bus: The Complete Series. Thanks so much to the sponsor and here is how to enter.... a Rafflecopter giveaway

I was a big fan of Magic School Bus as a child, so it's definitely a book and TV series I have introduced to my son. He loves it! :) What an awesome giveaway! Also, at our local Natural Science Museum "Ms. Frizzle" does weekend appearances that are a lot of fun.

My kids just watched one Magic School Bus DVD from the library and loved it!

SAHMJOJO said...

OH MY... My boys LOVE Ms. Frizzle! It is really funny because, up until recently when my oldest started PreK, EVERY time that my boys seen a school bus, they would both yell, "MOMMMY, LOOK IT IS THE MAGIC SCHOOL BUS, CAN WE GO SEE MS FRIZZLE?" and leading up to my oldest's first day of school, he kept telling his like brother that he was going to get to ride the magic school bus to school. I even love this series, myself. I don't remember it from when I was a child but I will sit down with the boys and watch these because I even learn things from it too, and that is how I know that this is a GREAT educational program for my children as well. Thank you so much for this Giveaway and Good Luck to all that enter :0)

My kids loved them when they were younger (they're now in middle and high school). I loved them when I taught. I even made a Mrs. Frizzle jumper - ocean print and totally wacky. I was really into it!
