Pros: A few figures with which to play with.
Cons: None noted.
Fisher Price has what they call their Sweet Street collection of toys. They are a group of stores, school, home, and other buildings that complete the full set.
Part of this are some what may be called accessories or enhancers. One of these pieces is the Sweet Street School Bus. I have seen this included with and boxed with the Sweet Street School and it is also available separately. At the same time it can be played independent of the Sweet Street Buildings or with them.
The bus is a hard plastic, six inch long by three inch wide and three and a half inch high vehicle that has four plastic gray coloured wheels that spin easily. The bus in turn moves smoothly across hard floors.
The bus is a traditional yellow school bus colour with a school bus sign over the front windshield. Like the buildings in the Sweet Street set, the bus is not modern. It could be from the fifties or sixties by looking at its shape.
At the same time it does have modern touches such as a stop sign on the side panel and a wheel chair accessible sign stickered on the back.
Each side panel has a pretty pastel coloured rainbow with a smiley face, butterflies, hearts, flowers and such on a pre applied sticker.
The entrance door on the front left of the bus opens as does the emergency door in the back.
The bus is open topped so that the children can easily place the figures that the bus comes with in and out of the four passenger seats and one bus driver seat.
Included with the bus is a driver/crossing guard, three children and a two and a half inch high stop sign that could be found on an old fashioned street scene.
This three inch high woman of colour is wearing blue slacks, a white short sleeve shirt, white gloves and an orange vest. There seems to be a whistle hanging from her neck. Though there is nothing that really depicts her as being a bus driver, there are no other adult figures to do the "driving"
One of the two and a half inch tall students is a blond haired girl wearing green slacks and a pink top with a purple hand bag hanging from her shoulder. She is wearing blue shoes. This is quite a selection of colours.
A brown haired boy is wearing blue slacks, a yellow shirt and a red coloured backpack while sporting white sneakers on his feet.
The last figure, also two and a half inches high has auburn hair with a lavender jumper, blue blouse and matching lavender shoes. She has a white bracelet on one wrist and in her opposite hand she is carrying what looks to be a pink lunch box.
All the figures bend at the waist and have arms that swing and heads that can turn side to side or for that matter turn 360's, ala Linda Blair in the Exorcist.
The bending at the waist makes the figures able to sit down in the bus for a ride. The figures do stay in place when rolling the bus.No seat belts included. My grand daughter asked about that!
My grand daughter has both the Bus and the Sweet Street School House. She happens to play mostly with the school house. She will put all the figures in the bus for rides to the store to get groceries or to go to McDonalds. No! She did not learn the McDonalds bit from this big guy.
Though she does not play with the bus exclusively, it is a nice addition to the Sweet Street School House set. It also offers one male student that she has to play with all the girls that dominate the set.
The bus and figures wipe down clean with just damp cloth and the plastic of the bus, though hard and brittle feeling, has stood up to some hard falls from table top elevations. Yes, the wheels on the bus go "round and round"
