Review

The children used to explore toy are around 16-18 months. When it was all removed from the packaging the children grabbed and explored the large shape characters, the put them in their mouths and shook them around. The shape people are well built and very safely put together.

Next they took turns to look at the bus and they tugged on the string at the front which again was well attached and could take some strong pulls. The children explored the wheels by pushing it forwards and backwards and enjoyed putting the shape people inside. The shapes on the side of the bus worked very well for the children to post the shape people through. 

Overall the bus is a perfect size for little hands and is a great size for exploring with clear paint work and enjoyed by the children.
