Design: RetailVine Customer Review of Free Product( What's this? )
This was another one my daughter couldn't wait to play with as I was getting it out of the box. This toy is fun and interactive with letters, letter sounds, and a colorful keyboard at the bottom. Something that instantly caught my attention was that the keyboard would play more than one key sound at a time, which is a big deal to me. I don't like it when you can't play more than one sound at a time on children's keyboards. My daughter is probably on the young side for this toy at two years old. Her favorite activity is turning it on...and then off. Another bonus for this toy is it's size and weight. It is quite light and thin, which makes it easy to pack in a diaper bag. Overall, a great toy for children learning their alphabet and alphabet sounds.

Leap Frog's Learning Bus is a winner. It provides various types of play for different learning options with pleasing, bright color graphics and attention holding sounds (music, object names, sound effects, etc). This item is light weight, portable and will keep the wee one entertained while teaching them the alphabet, following instructions, and much more. It has over 40 touch points that generate sound (although I would have liked them to include a bus horn as well). The speech is is clear and understandable, not at all garbled or fuzzy. I like that the Learning bus included a mini keyboard with cymbal and drum sounds on the tires, for the little ones to play with the music or create their own. The top of the bus is easy to grasp for carrying, and the item seems to be well made and durable.

I rate this toy a 5 and would certainly recommend it.

While it would be great to always be with my son while he's learning things, it's just not possible. I HAVE to do housework and all the things that come with being a mom. It's wonderful when I find products, like this one, that not only keeps him occupied and having fun, but is also teaching him valuable information.

We're working on teaching my 3 year old the alphabet right now, so this is perfect for him. I think the "touch" feature makes him feel grown up. ;) The "voice" of the toy is never hard to understand. She pronounces the words, letters, and sounds very well, in my opinion.

The only somewhat complaint I have about this toy is how easily the surface scratches. With this type of toy, that's to be expected, though. I didn't think about it until I saw the scratches, though. Our flooring downstairs is wood, so we moved this particular toy upstairs to our carpeted floor, so scratches won't be such an issue.

Overall, we love this toy! My oldest is soon to turn 4, and I hope another product from this line will be among his birthday presents!

I've bought and trusted Leapfrog products for years. Not only are they fun and educational, but they are sturdy. This is no exception.

I love that this has 3 different modes. It's not all about the obvious. Learning with letters, numbers, colors, and motor skills. Lights up and talks. Has a game mode as well for when they age. It's also very lightweight, and doesn't consume a ton of space.

The only real downside I found was the voice operation can be a tad unclear at times. Almost muffled. That element was hit or miss.

My 22 month old daughter received this toy as Christmas gift. We have a few toys like this one, which we all enjoy, but this one is the least educational of the bunch.

On the plus side, as many reviewers have noted, the completely flat surface is easy to clean and has no moving parts. The sound is acceptable, the recorded voices professional, and the graphics colorful and attractive. The board is light-weight and so easy for our daughter to carry about with her.

I believe the negatives outweighed the positives, however, the main one being that the toy is very passive and does not provide even a minimum of kinesthetic feedback. It is like the TV of learning boards. Again, as other reviewers have noted, the lack of tactical boundaries provides our daughter with a "sloppy" auditory and learning experience compared to the more clearly defined cause-and-effect relationship that her other learning boards provide. I think this toy is poorly positioned in the market, in that it is too confusing for younger children but potentially too boring for children who have the mastery of fine motor coordination necessary to work this toy successfully.

Ironically, her favorite thing to do with this board is to sit and then slide on it, setting off a cacophony of sounds and voices. It was fun the first few times, but she (and we!) have quickly tired of this. Another negative, which I realize is subjective, is that of all the toys she received this holiday season, this is the one she plays with the least. Finally, because of the issues noted above, we do not feel we can incorporate this toy into our intentional play sessions to the same degree as we can her other learning boards. Therefore, it is currently sitting in the garage. We have always wanted our own school bus, though, so maybe we will convert it to a tiny house camper.

When I opened the package, I was immediately impressed with the bright and pleasing colors. I also noticed the bus was very light and manageable for a pre-schooler. All edges are rounded making the bus very safe for toddler use. Knowing youngsters have lots of 'ickies,' the bus is very easy to clean and disinfect.

As we began to use the bus, I was very pleased to hear that LeapFrog had chosen to use various words for their letter recognition that were 'outside of the box,' making the Magic Learning Bus unique. I particularly like the three different modes which allow you to switch the emphasis from learning to FUN. Certainly, the Identification/Recognition mode is educational; but the Game/Quiz mode adds a little more challenge to the learning. Yet the Music Mode allows your child to either play along and learn or just dance. Considering the size, weight and price of the product, the sound quality is better than expected.

Once again, LeapFrog has not disappointed.

This toy is recommended for 2 year olds, but I gave this to my 1 1/2 year old so that she could have her own Leap Frog toy while her older brother plays with the his Leap Pad. We have the Leap Frog letter fridge magnets and she adores pushing those and signing the alphabet song, and although this toy does so much more, she only really likes to use the music feature on this toy. There are three buttons that direct the mode of play. There is a star that deals with finding the letters through sounds (though the sounds can be a little hard to make out, especially for little learning ears!), a beach ball that is the game mode, and then a music note for playing songs. I am amazed at how sensitive to the tough this little toy is. I personally like that it is flat, but I almost feel that it makes it hard to use for my little one. She can easily hit the wrong button. I thought for sure the power button, which is also on the flat front side, would constantly be hit by her, but surprisingly she avoids it and there is a power button as well on the back. I am still hopeful that she will explore more on this toy and use it for working on her letters and sounds, but maybe it is really better off for 2 years plus.

This is a great toy. The electronic voice is easy to understand, and there are lots of different activities for a child to do.The bus is pretty large, but it's very lightweight. The large format is wonderful for younger kids, because each touch-key surface is fairly big and very sensitive; you don't need terribly precise motor skills to use this toy. Kids can create music, learn vocabulary and practice the alphabet. The Learning Bus is ideal for kids to use by themselves on car trips, but it also provides activities for parents/sitters/older siblings to do with younger kids. The flat surface is easily cleaned, and it shuts off automatically if keys aren't pressed. which should make for good battery life. A real bargain!

This toy is totally schizophrenic. The sounds overlap each other and there's very little distinction between them. The letters and pictures are close together and it's easy for little fingers to accidently press the wrong one or more than one, especially since this board is completely flat. No raised buttons at all. My biggest issue are the overlapping sounds. And my 19 mo. old has shown little to no interest in this toy. Waste of $20
