I was recently sent copies of The Magic School Bus newest children movie DVD’s to review with my son. He is 5 and has always loved this series. Ms. Fizzle makes learning science topics fun as she uses the Magic School Bus to take children through how things work. The 2 newest releases are titled: In A Pickle and a 3-disc set titled: Revving Up and my son is actually watching In a Pickle once again as I type this!

Children Movie: The Magic School Bus
The Magic School Bus: In A Pickle

Learn about tiny microbes and molecules in the 3 short stories. Ages 4-10 and runs about 78 minutes plus some extras
  • Episode 1: Microbes-Learn how Keesha’s Cucumber turned itself into a pickle
  • Episode 2: Molecules-Discover a molecule down to it’s core as the class washes a famous car
  • Episode 3: Smell-take a journey to discover a unique smell in the First Annual Smell Search Contest
The Magic School Bus Set: Revving Up

Learn about Construction, Getting Energized and Habitats in a 3-disc Set. Ages 4-10n and combined run time is about 5 hours and extras
  • Disc 1: Construction-Learn about Engines (the importance in vehicle maintenance to get the bus running again), Structures (they use structures to plan an escape route when the class is stuck in a bathroom) and Computers (the class learns how to program a computer to do all their chores so school can open, but things start to get a little crazy)
  • Disc 2: Getting Energized-learn about Energy (learn how to improvise powering up the class’ Carnival Ride when the power cord shorts out), Electricity (learn how a Doorbell works when the Class races to fix Ms. Frizzle’s which has broken) and Light (is the Theater haunted or is the image of Arnold floating above a stage in a darkened theater a light trick)

I have always loved The Magic School Bus episodes as a way to give the best visual education for my boys about so many science topics. I find myself learning tons as well as I watch these with them throughout the years! I can’t come close to explain such topics as well as Ms Frizzle can! She also reminds me a bit of my 1st Grade teacher! You never forget the teacher that made learning so fun!

  1. I LOVE this show!! Glad to see something is still around from I was a kid. Microbes-Learn how Keesha's Cucumber turned itself into a pickle

  2. Computers (the class learns how to program a computer to do all their chores so school can open, but things start to get a little crazy) – Who doesn't love computers??

  3. I think I would enjoy the Microbes episode. 🙂 Thanks for the chance to win! I love watching Magic School Bus with my kids! It's sparks their interest in learning and it's great to use as a jumping off point to learn more about whatever subject they are learning in the show. 🙂
