Plan Toys Activity Bus

A few months ago, I was contacted by an online community known as Ebeanstalk. They are a website that focuses on toys that are educational and recommended by toy experts....and the real toy experts, moms.

We received a toy from Plan Toys to try out and review. My girls were overjoyed to find that a package had arrived in the mail for them. And they were even more excited when we opened the box and found this!

This toy is geared toward preschool aged children 3 and up. But I have to say that both of my girls have loved playing with the Activity Bus. It's especially fun considering their ages, 2 &4, because they both have such an interest in school. This toy has provided them with the opportunity for pretend play that increases their anticipation of going to school.

The school bus "drives" but can pull over at any time, open up and become an instant classroom. It comes with two people, 3 desks so there's room for new students, a chalk board/map and some books.
This toy has provided my girls with hours of entertainment and was even deemed cool enough for preschool show and tell by Lolly. It also was thoroughly enjoyed by the other kids in her class.

There are many things about Plan Toys that I admire.
  • They are an environmentally conscious company
  • They use non-chemically treated rubber wood for their toys
  • Their toys encourage creative play
  • And there are no batteries to make noise & need to be replaced!
So, if you're looking for some great, environmentally responsible toys that also provide hours of creative play, then head on over to Plan Toys. You won't be sorry!

This so adorable! I don't know if you remember, but you had a play school bus when you were Lolly's age (not as darling as this one) that you adored and played school by the hours. I think playing school is very helpful and the more they play the easier it is to learn numbers, letters, colors etc. Probably a good website for Grandmas, too.

Very cute. I'll have to look into something like that for Fiona next year.
