Get Out There and Explore with The Magic School Bus DVDs
Relaunching This September 2012
On September 7, 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.
I recently received The Magic School Bus: The Complete Series for review. This boxed set of DVDs 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 parent’s guide with lessons and learning options. This interactive guide creates wholesome and healthy entertainment for the entire family.On September 7, 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.
My older kids loved the Magic School Bus and so did their teachers. I remember an assignment my daughter’s science class had one year to create their own Magic School Bus book on a particular concept. That was great fun and a wonderful learning experience. I can’t wait for my yongest children to experience this educational and entertaining series.
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.
