Utopian Scholastic was a popular aesthetic amongst children from the late '80s to the late '90s. Usually paired with edutainment programs, books, and museums, the style goes for "timeless" typography, collages composed of stock images, and an overall environmental feeling.

I think of all the aesthetics I've highlighted so far, this gives me the warmest, fuzziest feeling. It reminds me of stuff I used to use back in elementary school during the 2000s and field trips I made to Balboa Park.

I love these threads, I've been looking forward to this, thank you for posting!
I really agree with vaporwavemaster1, this aesthetic is so ingrained and so widespread that I didn't even realize it's a cohesive aesthetic. It totally is though, and it's nice to see it compiled here. The use of glossy textures and soft lighting in this aesthetic really makes it feel cozy and natural.

Yeah, totally. It's so widespread and nostalgic that it touches probably everyone of a specific age.
