Ms. Frizzle and her Magic School Bus themed kits were crowd pleasers, too, this year! The Magic School Bus Human Body Lab earned the 2016 Kids Product of the Year Award. Budding astronauts were mesmerized by The Magic School Bus Space Lab. The reviewers gave the kit that comes is a yellow school bus-shaped container its 2016 Preferred Choice Award.

As the publication explains, “Creative Child Magazine’s Awards Program is unique in that all products submitted are reviewed by moms, music educators and early education professionals. Products are reviewed by many people – the very people who would purchase them.” Annually, 50 guest reviewers are invited to attend the magazine’s product review. “Guest reviewers are asked to sit and review each product at every station. This allows for each product to receive multiple reviews.”

Because all honors are awarded by moms and by educators, consumers are assured these eight Young Scientists Club kits will inspire and delight.

It’s been 17 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. Friends from other parts of the country told Novis they wanted to duplicate her concept and the idea for a science subscription service was born! The subscription kits are now mailed monthly to thousands of children around the world and the company’s retail kits are sold in hundreds of specialty stores. In addition to developing new products for The Young Scientists Club, this wise mom has many years of experience teaching at Phillips Academy, Andover and has written the science column for Parents Magazine plus wrote science experiments for the new science curriculum by McGraw-Hill Publishing.
