“ Brand: Teamsters / Type: Bus „
The Teamsters Classic Bus retails for around £5 depending on where you get it from. We got it from a factory outlet shop for £3, and you can get it from ebay for around this price at present (plus P&P). It's on Amazon as well from their associate sellers, but it's listed as a 'Teamsters Lights & Sound 1:38th Scale London Routemaster Bus' and is £4.29 (plus P&P).
You can get this bus in a choice of two colours, or buy both if you're feeling generous! One bus is a green with an "evening news" banner across it, and the other is red with the same "evening news" banner running along the side. The buses are identical apart from the differences in the main colour.
These are absolutely amazing little buses for the price. They're not cheap plastic that's going to break, despite what the price might indicate. They're proper die-cast buses that will withstand a good amount of crashing and bashing around at the hands of young children.
They're neat little things with added lights and sounds as extras too. Press the button on top of the bus, and it makes a fairly loud engine revving noise. Along with this, the headlights flash! I think that's pretty amazing for a solidly built die-cast bus to have these kinds of additional features.
The grandson loves that he can press the button and make the engine rev and lights flash when his bus stops at the traffic lights. Just driving cars around all day gets a bit monotonous, so I like the additional play value these little extras add to the toy. We've had our bus for a good three months now, and despite regular button-pressing, the sound and light effects are still going strong.
This is another bargain buy from the Teamsters range, and I highly recommend that every little boy (and some little girls) should own one of these.
