VTech Playtime Bus
Advantages: great educational
Disadvantages: can be repetitive
My sister and my nephew recently moved back home with me and I have to say that since he has been back the toys seem to be multiplying everyday and there is always something new that he has to play with as everyone spoils him rotten.
The Vtech Playtime bus was one of the many presents that he was given for Christmas as they were on special in Debenhams for £15, which I thought was an absolute bargain.
This bus is great it is interactive and teaches phonics, shapes, letters names and numbers through the different modes of play. The bus has a button on the top which you press to change the destination of the bus there is the school, the zoo and the train station and as you change the destination the bus sings you a song about the destination. There are sound effects of the bus and a range of different buttons to keep you child amused for hours with a range of different sounds.
The bus allows you child to learn while having fun there are numbers and there is the alphabet on the side of the bus and when you child presses the button it say the letter, shape or number that has been pressed. There are passengers that can be pressed that have certain sayings.
It is recommended for children aged 1 to 3 years old and if he gets bored he likes to also push it around the front room. It comes with a range of melodies so you do not have to hear the same ones over and over again as well as bus noises.
The bus also comes with batteries included, which is very rare with the toys of today as you normally can never find the batteries that you need. The batteries have now been in the bus for over 7 months and they are still as good as new and do not need replacing any time soon.
The only disadvantage is that my nephew likes to change the destinations and every time he does there is a song sung for the new destination, which can become very annoying over and over again after half an hour. The great thing is that there is a volume control button so you can turn the bus off or have it on a low or loud setting, I obviously opt for the quieter level.
This is a very durable toy and can be pushed and crashed around the front room and it still looks as good as new and had no signs of damage. My nephew is still a little young to be saying his alphabet but hopefully over the coming months this will help to aid in his learning.
For the small £15 price tag that was paid for this bus it is well worth every penny and a definite must have for any child, especially as it aids their learning and development as they grow and use this toy. Another great product from VTech.
