Little ones can use the sturdy bus for crawling play and as they explore inside, they can open the hatch to choose a driver to pop into his slot. Right behind, the roof opens up to reveal five places for five Egg-cited passengers. Each is a different little bird hatching out of an egg base, with a matching coloured egg top to pop on top.
Press on Penguin, Chick, Chicken, Parrot, Duck and Budgie to hear them squeak! Places for the eggs are interchangeable so they can all have a go at driving, and when they do, there’s another surprise. As the bus moves along, the driver spins around and around!

What our experts think
This playset is ideal for encouraging colour matching skills and also sparked lots of imaginative play.
The children enjoyed repeatedly moving the eggs around the bus – repetition is a great way for little ones to learn about the logic of how things work. Changing the coloured lids also helps to build their recognition of different colours.
There was lots of imaginative play when interacting with the eggs and the bus and it was lovely to see the children narrating their play by suggesting what the characters were doing. This is fantastic for developing their language and communication skills.
