I am the mother of two daughters ages 2 years and 9 months and they love this toy very much. The actually even fight over it at times because they love it so much. We received this toy as a hand me down from cousins and couldn't be more thrilled with it. They actually had another school bus toy but rarely ever played with it...but this one gets lots of use. It is very brightly colored and the music is very cute. There are four characters with it - the driver, a school boy, a school girl, and a dog. They fit into the bus by matching their shape with the shaped slot in the bus. My two year old can get them into the bus, but the 9 month old can not yet. The bus has a movable door, lights, wheels, and windshield wipers. The only thing that I would suggest to the company in making this product better would be to make more verses to the song - like it could sing the windows on the bus etc. Overall we are very pleased with this toy.
