Advantages: A colourful and robust toy bus
Disadvantages: The Lalaloopsies can't stand up in a queue to wait for the bus
What are Lalaloopsies?
The real Lalaloopsies are apparently rag dolls but these figures are the mini-lalaloopsies, the size of my finger and made of hard plastic. They have big heads and a funny jointed waist which makes their very narrow legs wobble and means that they can't stand up. This doesn't bother my daughter though who received two of these buses for her sixth birthday (she had been lobbying hard - perhaps too hard!)
What do you get?
The bright yellow bus comes with a Lalaloopsy called Bea, a miniature traffic cone, suitcase and a strange sort of owl creature, all made of plastic.
What is the bus like?
The bus has orange and pink wheels (in that two are orange and two are pink), with molded 'pencil' shapes along the side of the bus (the sort with the eraser on the end that always gets chewed off). The seats have little bits of elastic attached to act as seat-belts - and the Lalaloopsies, with their funny legs, do need these to stay on the seat. It also has a STOP sign which swings out from the side of the bus (and I'm impressed that it's still attached to both of our buses). The entrance of the bus is at the back - the door swings down to make a little slide for them to come out of. I like this idea and think it should be introduced (but from the top of double-decker buses to make it more worthwhile!!) The down side of this is that it comes off very easily and the doors can usually be found at the bottom of the toy-box. However, they clip back on very easily so this isn't an issue.
My daughter only has three of these mini-lalaloopsies - not enough to fill one bus - but the buses are usually seen traveling around our living room in convoy with the first filled with Sylvanian Families and the second with wooden dolls house dolls (The Playmobil figures also get the occasional ride!)
How well does it last
My daughter is a very robust tester of toys - they do have a tendency to break when she plays with them - so I am very pleased to report that after two months both buses are still going strong. The buses look as though they might be flimsy but I'm very glad to report that they are not.
The usual price for this bus is £14.99 although if you shop around you can usually get it for about £10.
This is a lovely toy that can accommodate all sorts of passengers and is likely to last and be played with for a long time.
Summary: This lovely toy can accommodate all sorts of passengers and is likely to be played with and last.
