DESCRIPTION: A plastic friction-powered shape sorter toy bus, with six shape blocks and a flip open tailgate. Includes one driver play figure. Suitable for children aged 12 months upwards.

GOOD POINTS: Sidney School Bus is a lovely bright and shiny yellow activity bus aimed young babies. Its large curved shape is great for little hands to touch and grip, with no sharp corners or small detachable components that they could hurt themselves on, and its durable plastic design will withstand lots of rigorous child play.

The bus has six wheels and is a battery-free friction-powered engine, meaning it can be easily pushed forwards and backwards at will, and once revved up it moves quite speedily along the floor! Furthermore, as the vehicle is pushed along it makes some really fun, noisy engine sounds that your child will love. The design of the bus is great, with friendly facial features, sticker detailing of 'passengers' at the windows, and a large flip-up Perspex driver’s windshield, complete with seat well inside to sit the accompanying 'bus conductor' play figure (which itself is double sided).

The toy also has a wonderful shape sorter feature to stimulate your child. It comes with six chunky and wonderfully rounded shape blocks which are white on the outside with coloured centres - two green circles, two red squares and two blue triangles. The roof of the bus contains three corresponding shaped holes (i.e. a circle, square and triangle), complete with colour-coordinated edges that your child can use to sort the blocks and insert them through the correct openings. Once the shapes have been sorted, a door on the back of the bus can simply be flipped open at the push of a button (using the driver's 'key hand') to allow your child to easily access the blocks.

Sidney School Bus is excellent for promoting a child's developmental skills on many levels. Its eye-catching colours, fun engine sounds and flip-down features stimulate sight, sound, and touch, and develop coordination and fine and gross motor skills. The shape sorter promotes matching and problem-solving skills through basic shape and colour recognition, while the play figure encourages imagination and role-play. In all, a fun battery-free activity toy with great educational benefits!

BAD POINTS: None, other than the sticker detailing may be worn off over time.

PRICE: Approx. £10.99
