Even with the £3 delivery charge, this is the cheapest I've been able to find the VTech Red Playtime Bus. John Lewis is selling it for £11.45. Plus you can collect for free in store. This is a perfect toy for a baby who's about to become a toddler. If you've a one year old, or are looking for a present for a one year old, then it is just the thing. My son had one of these and I heartily recommend it.
Although the age range is 1 to 3 years old, I have only just managed to sneak it out of his room in the last toy clearout. Just before his sixth birthday. So far he hasn't noticed. Fingers crossed it won't be missed, and this is a toy I can at last pass on to another baby!
It is one of three baby toys he has been very reluctant to part with, and has still managed to get some occasional playtime out of it. So would I say it was value for money? You betcha.
The VTech Red Playtime Bus is an interactive talking bus that teaches phonics, letter names and numbers. There are chunky buttons on top of the bus that call our shapes, and the smiley passengers on the bus say funny phrases when pressed. There's other music and sound effects, including horn, brake and accelerator. It requires two AA batteries, and these are included.
