VTech Red Playtime Bus

The interactive talking Red Playtime Bus teaches phonics, letter names, and numbers through four modes of play. Select your destination from the school, zoo, or train station to hear a singalong song or fun phrase. Chunky buttons on the top of the bus call out shapes, while the smiling passengers say funny phrases when pressed. The bus features a wide selection of musical melodies in various styles and fun sound effects including horn, brake, and accelerator.

Interactive character buttons

The bus includes four interactive character buttons that change with the mode selection. When in Phonics or Letter Mode, your little one will be introduced to fun phrases when any of the character buttons are pressed. When the bus is in Music Mode, a short phrase and a tune will be played. When in Quiz Mode, the character buttons can be used to play a finding game when you will be asked to find a letter, number, or shape.

Four modes of play

With four different modes of play, your little one will have hours of endless fun and learning with the Playtime Bus. Choose between Phonics, Letters, Quiz, and Music Modes using the slide selector switch. Press the buttons to hear letters, objects, and numbers, or musical notes in the music mode.

The bus is big and chunky, and very robust, having the ability to survive lots of drops and rough treatment!
The point of the bus is to teach children shapes, letters and numbers. There are four large "shape" buttons on the roof of the bus: Star, Triangle, Square and Circle. The side of the bus has all the letters of the alphabet in lower case, as well as the numbers 1-10.

The bus has a large purple slider on the roof, which enables even young children to swich it on and off easily. Next to that is a volume control which allows you to alternate between loud and quiet play.

The bus has four main play modes:

1: Sounds and Letters:

When this mode is activated, all the letter buttons make a phonetic sound when pressed. The numbers are pronounced in a clear Enlish accent. When you press the shapes at the top of the bus, they make various "engine" sounds. This mode enables the young child to learn the sound that each letter makes, as well as the names of the numbers.

2: Shapes, Numbers and Sounds:

In this mode, the bus asks the child to find the relevant character or shape on the bus and press it. It asks "where is...." followed by the letter sound. If the child presses the correct letter, the bus repeats it back. If not, the bus says "oops!" and repeats the question. This is really good at helping children identify letters and pick them out of the alphabet.

3: Sound and Letters:

The bus tells the child the phonetic sound of the letter pressed, as well as the name of the letter (e.g "ah" is the sound, ay is the name"). When you press the numbers, they play different notes in the musical scale, which allows you to play tunes by treating the numbers as piano keys.

My daughter got this for Christmas when she was 9 months old. It has been the favorite toy ever since. Even though she doesn't understand the games, she loves the singing, repetition etc and walking along pushing the bus. Even better- the the voices are english (not american) so it won't drive you (too) mad!

A friend bought the Playtime Bus for our daughter's first birthday and it has been in constant use ever since. Catchy tunes and noises provide entertainment now and the quizzes and games give her something to 'grow into'. Also good to simply push around. Recommended.

This product is really good fun for all ages, and is one that will grow with your child through to pre school age. The other bonus is that the music and sounds are not annoying as they can be on some toys!!

My son got this toy for his first birthday he's 2 1/2 now and still plays with it almost everyday. It has loads of nursery rhymes on it, teaches phonics and the alphabet and much more. Sometimes he even sits on it and rides around on it pushing with his feet or even stands on it to reach things - so its definately durable. My 8 month old also loves it!

This toy does everything the manufacturers claim. Importantly, it is also highly robust. In our house it has withstood being driven off the kitchen table at least three times and there is not a scratch or dent on it. I would recommend it on that basis alone, not to mention its fun and educational value.
