Eagle-eyed new mama Kat spotted this little wooden beauty. Based on the classic American school bus, its jolly yellow paint job will bring cheer to the gloomiest day, as will the smiley faced, rainbow t-shirted children that populate its seats. Another hit from Dutch company J.I.P. (Junior in Progress), the kids’ division of Present Time, famous for quirky, brightly coloured homewares. I think this makes a great alternative to the (bright red) glut of fire engines and buses out there and would make a fabulous present for a special little person. Â£20.76 from Amazon.
