ELC Shape Sorting Bus
Advantages: Lovely toy, bright, nice details
Disadvantages: The flap for getting into the bus keeps snapping off
This shape sorting bus is a fantastically fun toy suitable for girls and boys!
Bought from The Early Learning Centre this bus has become one of my grandson's favourite toys. He likes anything he can push along and so instantly fell in love with this and now when I'm looking after him it's hard to part him from this toy!
It is a big red bus with lots of detail on. It has holes cut out of the top in six different shapes and 6 shapes to go within these holes. These are three different colours and each colour is the same as the colour of the hole in the top of the bus so it helps to give children two ways to match the shapes both by shape and by colour.
Inside each shape are different things. In one is a mirror, in a another little balls that create a rattle, a little bus inside another etc. This makes the actual shapes toys and pieces of interest in themselves. My youngest grandchild just likes to shake the rattly one!
The shapes fit in the holes at the top and then fall into the bus. To get them out you need to open the back end of the bus. This is my only criticism. This back end easily comes off and it's quite fiddly to put back on again. My grandchildren keep opening it too heavy handed and it ends up coming off. You would think a product aimed at very young children would be more robust.
The bus's wheels work so it can be rolled around the floor. My grandson likes to shuffle along whilst he pushes this and enjoys playing with it as a bus. He tries to do the shape sorting side of it but at the moment struggles and just prefers to use it as a bus. My older grandchildren are a little too old to appreciate the shape sorting side of it yet although they do like to look at what is inside the shapes!
I really like it and love how attached my grandson is with it. It is quite large so not the easiest of things for him to push around but he doesn't seem to mind, I think he quite likes the challenge actually. Lovely toy.
