Graham first discovered The Magic School Bus via books at his preschool last year. It didn’t take long for me to figure out what he was talking about when he came home one afternoon and starting chattering about a book where a bus went inside the human body. I can remember myself watching these episodes on TV growing up! I instantly could hear the theme song playing in my mind and asked him if the class had seen it on the television. His eyes grew wide and he said, “They have it on TV too?”. I decided I would have to find an episode or two to show him so that he could experience The Magic School Bus like I did so many years ago.
Luck of all luck! You can now purchase the complete The Magic School Bus series on DVD. The complete series is currently retailing for about $50 on Amazon and features 52 episodes on 8 DVDs. These would be absolutely perfect for any fall or winter road trips you have planned. You can also pick up more affordable 3 pack combinations. We were sent the Magic School Bus: Field Trip Fun & Games for review. This is a great one for back to school and was perfect for Graham entering Kindergarten. He finds a lot of relatable topics because of his very first adventure with school! He is actually headed on his first field trip soon so this has been on the forefront of his mind. You can purchase the 3 packs for about $24.
Not in the market for a ton of DVDs? That’s ok. You can purchase DVDs one by one as well. The prices start at about $13.
Any of these would make excellent ideas for birthdays, stocking stuffers or to help reward a frightened Kindergartner for being so brave on his or her very first day of school!
