Bought this for my 3.5 year old daughter who has the Rainbow nursery set. It comes with *no figures*, but seats a driver (adult-sized character) and 7 babies (plus you can fit in another adult character standing next to the driver like a conductor, or nursery school teacher).
The set includes:
-bus with moveable seats (you can put them in different orientations), roof basket and removeable trampoline in the base (which acts as storage for all the itty bitty bits as well)
-bucket, spade and rake
-4 teeny sweets (will get almost instantly lost), 4 teeny cookies, bunch of bananas, single orange, bread rolls
-water bottle and removeable cup/ lid
-3 stickers to apply for the bus name and licence plates
The babies tend to fall off the seats easily when the bus is speeding along the playroom floor, but in different seat arrangements you can avoid this. Fortunately it moves around noiselessly, without that awful screech you get from many toy vehicles.
Small, cute, child-pleasing, and quite good value compared to much of the range.

This toy was a little smaller than i thought it would be, but it is very cute! really well made i think too, the seats in it can be arranged into different positions and taken out for picnics etc, the trampoline stored underneath the bus is adorable, my daughters (7 and 4) love it! a fun bus that little ones will have lots of fun with. Would have been even better if a driver came with it, but i do think this product is good value for money unlike some of the other sylvanian families products.

I purchased the nursery bus along with the rainbow nursery and feel the same about this item expensive for what it was, and again no passengers to go on the bus they come as an extra which I did not know, so with nursery and bus there were no children,will have to go and buy some for her to play with it.But I will say the ordering and delivery was very good and quick.

I bought this as a present to go with a Sylvanian family. The girl who received it, a 5 year old, was absolutely delighted. It is sturdy, durable, good looking and a great size. It comes with a bunch of tiny accessories which girls love arranging.
