VTech Red Playtime Bus £11.86 @ Amazon
This little bus looks like lots of fun and something that would become a firm favourite, played with over and over again.
For one, it's a BUS and all kids love busses! Whether it's playing with them, riding on them to go into town - kids love busses! In fact, most people have a secret thing about riding on the bus, I think.
I got on a bus a few weeks ago with about fifty or so rabid South African rugby fans - we were on our way to watch the Springboks play the All Blacks - and it was amusing to see that it's still obligatory to race to be the first to the seats at the back *grin*
This Vtech Red Playtime Bus will teach very small children cause and effect - push the buttons and something happens, and as they get older it will help teach them phonics, letter names and numbers.
The passengers on the side are big chunky buttons too, when they're pressed they say funny things.
It takes 2 AA batteries (which are included, thank you VTech) and is recommended for kiddies aged between one and three.
