I find it very hard to find toys these days which are affordable AND solid enough to last for years. This one meets the bill, with a very solid and kid friendly wooden bus, six school kids and the bus driver. The other major pieces? A bus stop and the entrance to the school. Just enough but not so much that a kid would feel overwhelmed.

This set offers years of play potential for children 3 years and up. There are so many wonderful features about this school bus set....no sharp edges, easily grasped, etc. I love the fact that it encourages children to actually use their imaginations. Almost a novelty these days.

No batteries, no built-in noises, and a minimum of pieces. Everything is fairly simple. Images of children printed onto wooded shapes which fit neatly into "seats" (actually, slots) on the school bus. Each child figure has no loose parts, no arms or legs, that can be broken off. One less headache and makes clean-up easy.

Even a 3 year old would have no difficulty grasping the various pieces in this set, fitting the children into the bus or rolling the bus across carpet or floor. And the kids in this set are very individualized, with various skin tones, hair textures, etc.

Since the price is so reasonable, I'm guessing that money which could have been spent on too many bells and whistles went into the evident quality of this very solid toy.

As a result, kids can make their own school bus sounds instead of pushing a button to hear a recorded sound (and those recordings eventually wear out anyway). They can make up conversations between the kids - or the kids and school bus driver. Doors on the bus and school entrance are easy to open.

Grandma bought this toy for my son when we flew out to visit. My son, who was 2.5 at the time, chose it out of three options, passing up a train (which blows my mind). My niece (6) and nephew (4) fell in love and kept asking Grandma if the toy was going to stay at her house (since they live near by). I truly was amazed by how well this toy spanned such various age groups.

It promotes such great imaginative play. We have even used it for some rounds of "Wheels on the bus." No matter how many other new toys (even trains) my son keeps getting, this is a daily go to. He just loves it.

I will say, however; that after just a few days of play from three kids (my son and aforementioned nephew and niece) some of the wood started splintering off. I was a bit disappointed. My niece did keep taking it outside, but still ... I feel like it shouldn't fall apart just hours after purchasing it. I used wood glue to put the pieces back on and it has been fine since, but I felt I had to mention that.

Like the train set, and other Melissa and Doug items, the school bus is well constructed and fun for imaginative play.

I love this set! It is safe, and is very sturdy, a great toy for younger children, especially those under 5yrs who tend to break everything. It is a fun toy to play with, very cute, the God sons really enjoy it, one of them really loves vehicles and buses, so he has a great time with it, driving it around and putting the people in it and dropping them off. :)

I would highly recommend this for younger children.

God Bless ~Amy

I love the Whittle World School Bus set because it is simple and encourages imaginative play. We have a wooden train-set, and these pieces fit nicely with it. Our children build a little town with the train set, and the bus takes the children to different places in the town.

I like that the wooden people fit securely in the bus, and I also like that the door to the schoolhouse has a band in it that allows it to open and close. This toy reminds me of classic toys from my childhood. My children have enjoyed playing with it.

Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
As a child therapist, I love Melissa and Doug products because they are simple, well-constructed, and give kids free rein to use their own imagination, qualities that are often hard to find in today's toys. With this school bus set, they have once again impressed me.

The school bus itself has smoothly rolling wheels, a door that opens easily, and a stop sign that can extend and retract just like on a real school bus. The set includes 1 adult figure and 6 children, who are ethnically diverse. The pieces that represent the school and the bus stop are simple and well-made. The children I work with have loved playing with this set, and it has stood up to some pretty rough play without a scratch. It's also safe; there are no small pieces or parts that can pinch or scratch little hands. For the children I work with who don't have well-developed fine motor skills, these toys are easy enough to manipulate with minimal frustration.

I am very happy with this product, and more importantly, so are the children with whom I work.

This toy is great! It's simple and solid. My 5.5 year old and 10 month old both enjoyed playing with this bus set on numerous occasions. It is well made and think it'll stand the test of time. We will definitely be buying more from this collection for our house as well as for gifts.
