Nice find, but it's one of those toys that had me tearing the batteries out after a few months of hearing it again and again and again and again and again!

Thanks you have just saved me a journey! Anyone know if you can you cancel an Argos reservation, would be nice to free my one up for someone else now...:)
Thanks our son is Bus Crazy!! Everytime we drive past one he say's "What's That"... We thought it was cute to begin with but it's driving us crazy now lol... Reckon the melodies on this will drive us equally insane but will be worth it just to see his face on Xmas morning!
You can't cancel the reservation, I tried yesterday and was told just to leave it and it would expire!
My mum brought my son this for christmas at full price, typical! Great find heat added!

I will join with you in your ARGHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!
Great toy, our little man loves his but it really does do my head in! X)
The most annoying toy I've ever come across.

Just reading post 4 has got it in my head again!
Can anybody tell me the 2nd line of 'Let's go to the school'? Despite hearing it 300+ times, I still can't understand the word following 'Learn some...'

It's a shame the songs are so readily triggered, because the rest of it (speaking the letters and numbers as you press them) is actually quite useful.

"let's go to the school, learn some letters and numbers too" my children love it, I find it awful, especially as a teacher when it's advertised as a 'phonics bus' and really isn't anything close to phonics!!
just reserved, thanks.
Back up to £17 at amazon
Saw them in Home Bargains for the same price
Just for another perspective in case you are put off by some of the comments: compared to some of my kids' toys it's not that annoying to me. It switches itself off after only about a minute of not playing. I guess it depends on your tolerance levels.

Unable to find for £8.49 on Amazon Can anyone point me in the right direction as the cheapest I can see is £16.95 + free Delivery. You can cancel a reservation on line with Argos

Oh god, I got this for my friends daughter a few years ago, she LOVED it, but it drove me bonkers whenever I babysat her!
Great toy.
Thank you, jojotall, we'd been looking for a Christmas present for a neighbour's 2 y/o boy, he's mad keen on buses so this will make an ideal gift.

Thanks so much

Glad to have been of help

Found 3 in stock in Oldham Elk Mill if it helps anyone.
I love this bus and it doesn't annoy me too much despite my twins playing with it a lot!
Prezzie for 1 year old daughter sorted, thank you!

Lets see if my 5 year old son lets her get a look in! LOL
