My kids (all 3 of them) had a great time with this kit. They love the magic school bus books and show. This kit made the book come alive for them. They had so much fun. The huge poster and sticks were really interesting and the experiments kept their attention for hours (not the easiest thing to do with three boys especially at their ages, 6-11 years old!!!!). I would defiantly recommend this product for your own children or as gifts (that is what I am doing this year. I have a pair of nieces that will love this kit!!!).

I purchased this to use with my homeschooled 6-year-old. She absolutely loved it and it really helped solidify what we were learning about in books. She liked charting her process on the huge poster cart and excitedly shared the results of the experiments with everyone. It has easy to follow directions and everything actually works! You could probably round up the materials in this kit for less money but the convenience of having everything in one place and the kid-friendly directions make this a keeper!!

I know from experience that boxed science kits often look more interesting in the package than in reality. I was hoping this wasn't the case with the Frizz since we love her so much. But unfortunately this was the case here too.

Good.

The huge (life size for my 6 yo dd!) body poster is pretty cool. It looks like something that will last for a while (though it did rip when we unfolded it). The body part stickers are pretty neat too. We haven't stuck them on the poster yet though. I'm just afraid that we won't be able to get them lined up exactly with the body part outlines and then my dd will be frustrated. If they were repositionable stickers I would be much less anxious.

The instruction booklet is colorful and features the familiar characters which is nice. In theory, the topics should be interesting.

Bad.

Materials from home might not be readily available. Right off the bat you need chicken bones for experiment one. Not such a great idea for a kid who is excited to get the stuff out of the box and play. You mostly likely have to skip experiment one until you can plan for it. You'll need your own 2 liter bottle too. We don't normally have soda in the house but bought some for the "tornado" tube experiments. So unfortunately we had to cannibalize that experiment for this experiment, which sadly didn't work.

Materials needed from home might not work well. We had to use a cut-up 2 liter bottle for the lungs "experiment". Today's 2 liter bottles probably don't work as well as ones from a few years ago that were thicker and perhaps not made of post-recycled materials. The Pepsi bottle was much too flimsy to hold its shape when a rubber band was wrapped around it. Every time we tried to do the activity it fell apart.

I bought this for my homeschooled 5 year-old. He really enjoyed working through the experiments, and he particularly loves the life-size poster that still hangs on his wall. My concern is that the experiments didn't always work well, and sometimes didn't really illustrate the principle that was being taught. For example, the model diaphragm required a sheet of rubber to be taped over a cut soda bottle... that was extremely finicky to get airtight, and I barely got it to work. My son certainly couldn't do it himself. Also, the poster comes with stickers of body parts which are supposed to correspond to the experiments, but they don't. I hate to quibble, since the poster was his favorite part of the kit; it's just the kind of inconsistency that caused me to see this as more of a toy than an educational resource.

I bought this for my son's friend who turned six this summer. He has always shown a strong interest in the human body and after much research this seemed like a super age-appropriate gift to encourage his love of the body. He has loved it. His parents called me to tell me thank you and asked where I got it so they could get him more of the kits from the Magic School Bus series. I bought the one of space for my son and he (and I) have equally loved it and learned a lot. I bought this gift almost 6 months ago and when I was at their house about 3 weeks ago, I noticed he had his poster of the human body (which was a lot larger than I expected it to be) hung up on his wall across from his bed. I would highly recommend this (and any Magic School Bus kit) for any budding young scientists.

I had purchased this based on the recommendations that I had read on this site and other homeschool sites. I homeschool my children (ages 6 and 8). I assumed that I would be able to teach the basics of the Human Body straight out of this box (and the corresponding Magic School Bus Book and Video). I was disappointed with the booklet. The explanations of the various systems in the human body weren't as comprehensive as I would've liked. In most cases, I used a science book to set the stage for the experiment.

We had a few experiments that didn't work. In a few instances I found simpler experiments online that demonstrated the same concept and worked much better.

Honestly, I felt like this was an overpriced large poster with stickers. Everything else can easily be gathered at home for a fraction of the cost.
