Magic School Bus

How many folks here watch/read the Magic School Bus or use its experiments? My mom recently bought us the entire series on DVD (YAY!) and I'm going to work on getting the books and experiments as my daughter gets a bit older. Do your kids enjoy it? Do you?? :) Did you watch/read it as a kid?

 We love the magic school bus :) My daughter got the DVD set for Christmas. We have been able to match an episode with almost every lesson we have.

My kids love the magic school bus show!  They learned so much just from watching that show. :)

It has been great! My daughter actually prefers it to the shows she was watching (Little Einsteins, Dora, and Barney) :) We limit TV already, but when she does watch it, MSB is on most of the time now!

 My children LOVE the show.  We do not have any of the books and have not done any of the experiments/projects connected to (based on) the books/shows.  I'm SURE they would love those, too.  Maybe eventually.  :)  I'll look forward to hearing what you think of it.

If you ever want to find the experiments, they go on sale on Zulily.com every couple of months :)

We got the serise when it was on sale a while ago- my kids love it!  We have a few kits we have found on discount at our local discount store, and they have been really helpful too.  I'd say they are worth it.

 I am planning to use it as the basis' of our science curriculum next year.  I will be using other things to make sure we cover it but everything will start and end with the magic school bus movies because we bought the whole dvd series too.  My kids have been watching them for fun and love it.  I watched them as a kid and I still love them.
