Cool New Toy Sparks Child's Imagination

As a parent, I'm constantly on the look out for affordable, yet fun and safe toys for my children. I recently was given the opportunity to test toys for Our first box arrived holding the Activity Bus by Plan Toys. While you may not have heard of Plan Toys, you'll be glad to know that they are one of the few toy companies currently providing green toys for children.

The Activity Bus arrived at our home the day after my older son's birthday. The house was already filled to the brim with new toys. Needless to say, the bus sat on the kitchen island unopened for a few hours. Eventually though, my four year old began to get curious.

My son quickly discovered that what appeared to be a school bus was actually a fold out classroom as well. It included chairs and a blackboard. But I think he became most excited when he found that there were figurines included as well.

It's been three days since the Activity Bus arrived, and it remains one of the favorites. I was a little worried when it was dropped on the stairs, but luckily it held up. Ebeanstalk couldn't have picked a better time to send the bus. My son will be entering Pre-K this September. He is anxious about learning. His enthusiasm about entering a classroom was evident while watching him play with his new toy.

I encourage parents to make a visit to Plan Toys. The Activity Bus is a sure winner!

I LOVE Plan toys. I think they are incredibly well made and my kids always got a lot of play out of them. This sounds like it's no exception!
