The best show for kids of all ages

Our kids have loved this since they were little. The whole "Magic School Bus Rides Again" series is super well produced. It's rare to find something great for kids and educational that isn't completely annoying. Great job to these folx.

Is It Any Good?

This short movie brings all the humor, heart, and cool science facts typical of the series. The kids-turned-astronauts learn fun things about life in space, like why you can't actually eat "space ice cream" in space. Any kid into space, or really any kid in general, will love living vicariously through the Magic School Bus class. There's lots of silliness in The Magic School Bus Rides Again: Kids in Space, but also a great lesson about why it's really important to communicate when you're working with a team. And as a bonus, there's lots of STEM learning throughout.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
