If you have toddlers who aren’t school bound this year, watching older siblings go on their merry way after a summer spent together may leave them a bit crestfallen. Get your little tykes in on the back to school action with this cheery Sorting Bus from Plan Toys. Made from rubber wood and colored with nontoxic dyes, this educational toy has two shape openings on each side and one on top — and kids can easily pull the handle atop the vehicle to make the inserted shapes fall out to start the sorting all over again. The bus driver may also be taken in and out of the bus, which is also a pull toy! Your tot can make the wheels go round and round all through the house til their heart’s content… at least, until the big kids come home and want a turn too.
