Description: The #984 Safety School Bus is the 2nd Original Little People bus made by Fisher-Price. It replaced 1959-Easter 1961's #983 Safety School Bus - The very first Little People set ever made by Fisher-Price.

The #984 was a sequel, and like most sequels it paled in comparison to the first and best. The #984 has a yellow plastic top opposed to the #983's authentic-looking clear plastic top. Also, the #984 was not sold with a wooden roof top, where the #983 was.

The litho-wrapped figures introduced with the #983 were modified as shaped all-wood bodies in 1960 for the #234 Nifty Station Wagon and #168 Snorky Fire Engine. The mom and dad sold in the #234 were sold in the #984 as a girl and boy. 3 other similar-shaped figures were created to complete the 5 Little People group sold with this bus.

Accessories:
  • FPT556 - Yellow wooden school bus with a yellow plastic top. It has a wooden hinged door with a spring to close it, a wooden head driver who turns to look from side to side as the toy is pulled, and a red rectangular plastic stop sign by the door that can be turned in or out.
