Fisher-Price little people big yellow school bus bringing a world of fantasy play to life

There was a lot of excitement in our home last week when Hamish received a parcel from Fisher-Price, Mattel. Inside was an iconic Little people big yellow school bus.
We are big fans of the Little people range so when a big bus arrived along with cute little people to play with he was ready to go on an imaginary adventure with his new friends.

About the bus

The iconic Little People® school bus has a pull-handle that stores underneath, for easy transportation.
Your kids will love to take their bus from bus stop to bus stop as they press the Discovery Buttons for music, sounds, lights and Smart Stages™ learning content.
Watch them manually open the door, flip out the stop sign, and open the wheelchair ramp.
Best of all they can bring their friends along as the bus has space to hold 12 little people. ( figures sold separately)
Your little bus comes with a bus driver and 3 passengers to allow your child to engage in instant play.
A wonderful way to show diversity, introduce real-life concepts to play, and teach life skills like road safety and how to catch a bus.
You can see the little yellow bus in play here
