It's been nearly twenty years since Esther Novis, a mother of five and a former Harvard-trained biologist, started The Young Scientists Club as a summer science camp for her then 5-year-old son. And, for more than a decade The Young Scientists Club has been developing science kits and games featuring The Magic School Bus under license from Scholastic, based on the bestselling book series written by Joanna Cole and illustrated by Bruce Degen. With the world of STEM-infused learning and play becoming more and more popular in recent years, The Magic School Bus has also become a big hit on Netflix - reimagined as The Magic School Bus Rides Again with Fiona Frizzle taking over at the wheel to inspire a new generation of kids. Now, just in-time for the holiday season, The Young Scientists Club has unleashed a collection of a dozen new and updated Magic School Bus Science Kits that are Holiday Wish Guide™ Picks - perfect for gifting to scientists ages 5-12.
Imaginative play is something that I'm big on here at Rock Father HQ, but like many households - space is at a premium. It's also little secret that cardboard boxes often hold the keys to countless hours of open-ended play, and that's where Sharingland comes in with their innovative new line of award-winning premium playhouses - a 2018 Holiday Wish Guide™ Pick!. Think of it as "the cardboard box 2.0" - sustainable, pop-up cardboard playhouses with vibrant graphics that are printed inside and out. Better yet, these come with a variety of accessories and wearables across themes like Space Odyssey, Epic Castle, Grand Palace, Windmill Farm and Ancestral Teepee! Check out the video below for more on the story of how Sharingland came to life, and to see these fantastic, foldable playhouses in-action!
