Description: Fisher-Price introduced this school bus set in celebration of the Little People 40th Anniversary. The first Little People set ever made by Fisher-Price was 1959's #983 Safety School Bus. The new bus was designed with features from the #983 in mind, such as the bus eyes move up and down and the passengers bounce in their seat when the bus rolls. The bus door opens, and the stop sign flips in and out. Unlike the #983, the new bus has a wheel chair ramp on the back.

The color, lithos, and design of the new bus is a refreshing change from the dull and slightly ugly #72372 School Bus (discontinued in 1998). The new bus has a blue base, yellow top, and a blue interior with red seats. The front has a happy smiling face with eyes that roll. The lithos on the sides have brightly colored balloons and kites with long tails.

  • FPT13510 - Yellow school bus with a blue base, blue interior, red seats, and brightly colored balloon and kite lithos on the sides. The bus eyes move up and down as the bus rolls. The back door folds down to double as a wheelchair ramp.
