Cars go “beep-beep”, trains go “choo-choo” and rockets zoom to the moon. This My Busy Bots bag brings vehicles to life as little hands sort them into colours, match silhouettes and discover which parts of our world vehicles transport people in. When they have finished all their learning there is a brightly coloured map they can play on with all the vehicles.
This activity is suitable for little ones from 3 -6 years old. As all children develop in their own time, this is a guideline and may vary with your child.
